Shia LaBeouf & Mia Goth Vacation in Rio

Posted Friday December 27, 2013 1:40 PM GMT

Enjoying some sunshine and warm temperatures, Shia LaBeouf took a walk in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Thursday (December 27).

The “Transformers” star sported a red shirt and a black pair of shorts as he and his girlfriend Mia Goth met up with his family for the much-needed vacation.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, LaBeouf is currently the target for controversy after ripping off the entire story line from Daniel Clowes’ 2007 "Justin M. Damiano” and used it for his own short film “Howard Cantour.com.”

Although he has fully admitted to the plagiarism and has since apologized, Clowes’ publisher Fantagraphics says there may be legal action against Shia.

“Daniel is exploring his legal options. LaBeouf changed the name of the main character, but he used the comic as a direct script and story board,” a rep from Fantagraphics stated.

“Clowes has a real melodramatic voice that is very idiosyncratic and LaBeouf just used the dialogue word for word. There is no ambiguity. There is no way that anybody wrote this but Dan Clowes. It just defies any kind of logic or good sense. This was so blatant and inexcusable that it was as baffling as it was appalling.”

The spokesperson added, “As far as I know the only comments [Shia] has given were those late night Twitter comments a few nights ago.”
