Shia LaBeouf & Uncle Release Statements on Family Legal Drama
“I want to publicly apologize to my nephew and to my sister [Shia's mother Shayna] for any false accusations and negative publicity that they received as a result of this legal matter,” Barry told People. “I take full responsibility for failing to meet my obligations under our agreement and want to stress that neither Shia nor Shayna were ever at fault and I am grateful for the financial assistance they provided to me.”
“Also, contrary to press reports, Shia and Shayna never took any action to evict me or my wife from our apartment. I am happy that we were able to resolve this matter,” Barry added. In 2013, he was ordered to repay Shia by a New York Court judge.
Shia also released a statement and said, “I am just happy that this has all been resolved and that it is finally over.”
