It makes a welcome change to read something about Shia LaBeouf that isn’t detailing his absurd public antics, but this story is no less disconcerting.
LaBeouf has found himself on the other side of the law for once and instead of being arrested, he has filed for a restraining order to keep a stalker, who happens to think he is Albert Einstein, away from him.
The stalker in question is a woman named Graciela Nahle, who was arrested after she was found “skulking around” the actor’s Studio City, California, property. According to TMZ, she’s even made threats to blow up the Transformers actor’s house. Yikes!
“I am going to blow up your house! I am going to blow up the world! You are Albert Einstein, and we belong together,” Nahle allegedly said in August after LaBeouf found her eating watermelon in his driveway and asked her to leave.
According to documents obtained by the site, Nahle has apparently been on LaBeouf’s property three times already and he “fears for his safety.”
The publication reports Nahle has now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from the actor, and we hope that actually does stop her (although it seems somewhat unlikely given that she thinks he is Albert Einstein).
The legal ruling against Nahle comes just a week after LaBeouf pleaded guilty to a disorderly conduct charge stemming from an incident at a Broadway Cabaret show in June.
According to Fox News, the judge ordered him to complete a six-month stint of outpatient alcohol rehab. The The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman actor has already completed three months of the court order.
