Friends say he has split from his partner British actress Mia Goth and Twigs’ engagement to ‘Twilight’ actor Robert Pattinson ended last year.
LaBeouf, whose Hollywood career has been dogged by controversy and arrests for being drunk in public, is said to have ‘married’ Goth two years ago at an Elvis Presley-themed chapel in Las Vegas.
While LaBeouf claimed they were legally wed, the clerk of the court for the state of Nevada said no marriage licence had been issued in the couple’s name and said they had had held a commitment ceremony.
A close friend of Goth told MailOnline that the 24-year-old British actress had ended her relationship with LaBeouf several months ago.
‘Everybody in their circle knows that Mia and Shia are separating,’ said the friend.
‘She’s spending her time between London and New York while he’s currently in London.
‘Mia had been having some problems with Shia. It was a very crazy relationship and he is very fiery.
‘She has told her friends that she can’t take any more. When he was preparing for a part, Mia would keep away from him and move out because his rehearsals were so intense.’
The friend added that Goth had bought a flat in Notting Hill and was planning to renovate the property.

Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnet, split from Pattinson last year. They had been together for two years and looked set to marry.
Pattinson is reported to have ended the relationship telling friends their careers and constant travel kept them apart.
He is said to have called an end to their romance as he ‘grew tired’ by the fact they had been ‘drifting apart’.
Twigs, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, saw her profile in America raised by her relationship with Pattinson as he was one of the most talked about stars following his role in the Twilight movies.
LaBeouf was with Goth for six years having met on the set of the film Nymphomaniac.
In keeping with the quirky nature of the couple and the Elvis themed event, they promised to adopt one another’s hounddogs, not to wear their blue sues shoes in the rain, to be ‘one another’s teddy bear’ and to love each other ‘like a hunka hunka burning love’.
The ceremony was live streamed on a celebrity website but even before the happy event the couple were known to have a stormy relationship.
Month prior to the wedding they were filmed having a stand up row in a street in Germany with LaBeouf overheard saying: ‘I don’t want to touch a woman, I don’t want to hit a woman.’
The couple were not seen together for two months but were later reconciled.
LaBeouf’s career has been dogged by arrests and controversy.
Before he became one of the hottest young actors in Hollywood with star roles in Transformers and the most recent Indiana Jones blockbuster, Shia LaBeouf was an experienced child star.
From his early role in the Disney TV show ‘Even Stevens’ that earned him an Emmy nomination he graduated to much grander productions and starred alongside Keanu Reeves in the action film ‘Constantine’.
But it was in 2007 at the age 21 that his career took off and he was the first on the list for directors looking for a young actor to take on a leading role.

His breakout role came in ‘Disturbia’ but he hit the big time when cast as Sam Witwicky in the first of the Transformers films. A sequel followed, but audiences seemingly had fallen out of love with the young actor and he was nominated for ‘worst screen couple’ with actress Meghan Fox.
LaBeouf was cast alongside Harrison Ford in ‘Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull but soured his relationship with the veteran actor with negative comments about the film.
That self-destructive streak has been evident in his multiple arrests for being drunk in public, with his first coming in 2009 when he was arrested in the early hours of the morning in Chicago trying to buy cigarettes.
Another arrest followed in 2013 in Austin, Texas and last July he ended up in a cell after being arrested for being drunk and disorderly while in Savannah, Georgia. A video filmed of his racist rant against police went vital and LaBeouf issued a grovelling apology saying he had reached a new low.
He was fined $1,000 and ordered to attend anger management sessions.
As well as appearing in popular films such ‘Fury’ with Brad Pitt the actor has devoted much of his time to performance art and some of his stunts have puzzled his fans and critics alike.
His most famous came at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013 where he was promoting the film ‘Nymphomaniac’.
He appeared with a paper bag over his head with the words ‘I am not famous anymore’ and would later repeat the same stunt for six days at an art gallery in Los Angeles where he sat without saying a word and his features hidden by the bag.
Before hooking up with Mia, Shia had dated another English actress, Carey Mulligan, his co-star in Oliver Stone’s 2010 film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
A friend of Mia said her circle of close friends in London did not like LaBeouf.

‘I met Shia once when Mia bought him out for a drink and we went to a pub in Catford. He was really arrogant, didn’t show any interest in Mia’s friends and just behaved like a big time Charlie. None of Mia’s London crowd like him or have got any time for him.’
FKA Twigs has had a much lower profile since bursting on to the music scene as a dancer and singer.
She got the nickname Twigs because of the way her joints cracked while dancing and added the FKA after another artist called Twigs complained they had copyright on the name.
While her music has been critically acclaimed she has achieved fame from her dancing and appeared in one of Apple’s videos for their HomePod.
The 30 year old has also directed music videos but became even more high profile from her relationship with ‘Twilight’ star Robert Pattinson with the couple spending much of their time living in New York.
