Contrary to previous reports, Shia LaBeouf is not in rehab, his publicist announced today. He is, as the Associated Press is reporting it, "receiving voluntary treatment for alcohol addiction."

According to TMZ, which first reported the news, LeBeouf has checked himself into a rehab facility, despite X17 Online's report yesterday wherein they followed him to "a celebrity-frequented treatment facility in Hollywood." From TMZ:

Shia's rep tells us ... reports that he entered a rehab facility are bogus. She says his bizarre conduct over the last few months is symptomatic of a larger health issue — alcohol addiction — and he understands it.

It sounds like Shia is in a 12-step program. The rep says "he has taken the first of many necessary steps toward recovery."
