• Shia Lebouf starred in three "Transformers" movies
  • He turned down a $15 million pay check for "Transformers 4"
  • He faces a lawsuit against ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs

Shia Labeouf’s net worth is $25 million. He gained popularity and massive fortune after appearing in several “Transformers” movies.

Labeouf played Sam Witwicky in the “Transformers” movies. He starred in the first three instalments of the series, and made $21 million. His asking salary for the fourth film, “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction,” was denied. The actor reportedly requested $18 million, but the production team could only offer him $15 million. The stalemate led to Labeouf leaving the franchise, which led to Mark Wahlberg scoring the lead role in the fourth film, per Celebrity Net Worth.

The 34-year-old Labeouf debjuted in the Disney show “Even Stevens.” He won several awards as a child actor, including a Daytime Emmy. The show ran for three years, after which, he made the jump to movies. Aside from “Transformers,” Labeouf also starred in “Disturbia,” "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." However, not all his movies can be considered typical or safe for general audiences. The Los Angeles native also got involved in controversial projects. As a performance artist, he collaborated with British artist and author Luke Turner and Finnish artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö for performances that touch upon subjects such as celebrity and vulnerability.

Lebouf has had troubles with the law. He was arrested for being drunk in public and charged for trespassing and disorderly conduct. The performer was also accused of copying the works of Dan Clowes. This led to the latter’s lawyers giving Labeouf a cease-and-desist letter.

On the personal side, he lives in a mansion in Pasadena, California, worth $5.4 million. He recently sold ,his home in Sherman Oaks, California, for $2.4 million. Lebouf was married to Mia Goth. The two filed for divorce in 2018.

FKA Twigs, a former girlfriend, filed charges of “sexual battery” and “assault” against the actor. The move was supported by pop star Sia, who shared her own experiences with Lebouf in a social media post. Sia claimed she was manipulated into a relationship by the actor. The two worked on a music video in 2015, a report in Vulture revealed.

No one can question Labeouf's talent as an actor, but he also has a penchant for bizarre behavior. The recent accusations from his former partners of physical and emotional abuse do not help his image.
