The Transformers star believes that he is being targeted because of his celebrity.
Over the weekend, the 26-year-old got into a fight with people at a London pub after someone began picking on him and stole his hat.
“Shia swears blind that he doesn’t court trouble, but it seems to follow him wherever he goes,” a source reveals.
“This time, it wasn’t his fault. He lost his temper after someone took his baseball cap and told the guy who took it how he felt!”
“But, it’s this sort of juvenile act that can ignite his short fuse and Shia believes he is picked on by people simply because of his fame,” added the source.
A fight broke out in the pub and Shia fled the scene in a taxi with his Nymphomaniac co-star Mia Goth.
“As a celebrity he stands out of the crowd and is an easy target for pranksters. He feels he gets victimized for who he is and says that people often try to start a fight with him just for fun.”
Shia just get a body guard and quit complaining!
Waaah, it must suck to be rich and famous… [eye roll]
