Water under the bridge then?
Shia LeBeouf steps out with Marilyn Manson after spitting H20 all over him
Despite his intimidating exterior, it seems that Marilyn Manson is one forgiving friend.
It was a case of water under the bridge last night, as the goth shock rocker stepped out with Shia LeBeouf following the launch of his new video Born Villain, which was directed by the Transformers star.
The 25-year-old actor attended the event with his girlfriend Karolyn Pho at the Hennessey and Inglalls bookstore in Los Angeles, just one week after he reportedly spat water all over her and the 42-year-old musician.
Shia kept underwraps in his favorite baseball cap and his growing beard. He wore light blue, black faded jeans and scuffed black dress shoes. His girlfriend Karolyn was equally as shy, covering up her face with a black clutch. The exotic beauty slipped into a patterned long-sleeve maxi dress for the occasion.
Meanwhile Shia has called Marilyn 'an indelible figure,'
'He’s a big deal to me, and in my childhood, I don’t know of a scarier figure in art. He, in my teenage years, was the scariest thing in the world, so part of me has always been intrigued,' he told MTV news.
The actor said that directing the rocker's video was a good change of pace.
' (It)is a really cool diversion for me when I’m not making a movie,' he said. 'It gives me an opportunity to work with musicians I admire who I would otherwise never get to work with in any other capacity.'
His praise for the musician comes after the moody actor shocked onlookers last week, when he spat water around at the Belvedere (RED) Brings The Box to LA night at Paul And Andre last Friday, according to an eyewitness that spoke to Life and Style.
He is reported to have put some in his mouth before spitting it all over his girlfriend Karolyn.
He is then said to have turned his attention to Marilyn.
Before the performance started Shia 'seemed wasted' as he sat in a designated area with Karolyn and Manson.
And things either soon turned nasty, or the actor decided to try out a practical joke that got out of hand.
The witness said: 'Shia picked up a water bottle and shot a mouthful of water all over his date's legs.
'Then he put more water in his mouth and started spitting it all over his tablemates, including Marilyn Manson.'
Antichrist Superstar singer Marilyn tried to calm the actor down by offering him a fist bump, but it is claimed Shia only grew more out of control.
The witness said: 'All of a sudden, Shia started shouting at his date and getting visibly angry.
He then decided it was time to leave and 'lunged' through the very thick crowd.
The eyewitness said: 'They tried to hold him back, but he kept struggling through.
'Shia had to climb over people and tear himself out of the grasp of various strangers who were trying to keep him from going crazy.'
Once he broke free and bolted out the door, his panicked date chased after him. The two never returned.
The witness said: 'Marilyn looked shocked and annoyed, but stayed seated.
'It was so insane -- he just had a total meltdown right in front of everyone. It was completely out of control. He was so angry and physical.'
Shia's publicist denied there had been an argument, but did not deny the incident.
She said: 'Shia actually left early as planned.
'He went to see one of the bands performing in the showcase and left after they finished.
'Exiting through a crowded room was apparently misinterpreted. No altercation occurred. '
This isn't the first time the Indiana Jones star has caused concern with his public behavior.
Earlier this year, Shia was handcuffed by police after getting involved in a bar brawl.
He allegedly got into a fight after becoming enraged over a gay slur.
The actor was punched and suffered a split lip after telling a bargoer, who called him a 'f***ing faggot,' he was going to 'kick his f***ing ass.'
However the move backfired, and eventually the pair were restrained by police. However neither party wanted to press charges and they were both released.
In 2007, he was arrested after wandering into a Chicago Walgreens and verbally assaulting a security guard.
The case was dropped when the store later refused to press charges.
After the incident, Shia joked about it on the Late Show with David Letterman.
He said: 'Drinking and driving is one thing, but drinking and shopping ... it's just as bad.'
