Shia LaBeouf is undergoing treatment for alcoholism, says his rep.

As Gossip Cop was the FIRST to exclusively report, the actor is NOT in an in-patient rehab facility.

Rather, LaBeouf is receiving out-patient counseling in the wake of his latest run-in with the law and other bizarre behavior.

A rep for the movie star says in a statement released Thursday evening:

“Contrary to previous erroneous reports, Shia LaBeouf has not checked into a rehabilitation facility but he is voluntarily receiving treatment for alcohol addiction. He understands that these recent actions are a symptom of a larger health problem and he has taken the first of many necessary steps towards recovery. There will be no further comments made at this time.”

Earlier in the day, LaBeouf was spotted carrying an Alcoholics Anonymous book.
