Shia LaBeouf of 'Even Stevens' fame is retiring

Shia LaBeouf has announced that he is retiring from public life because his "artistic integrity has been attacked," according to a Jan. 10 report on MSN.com. The 27-year-old former Disney Channel star has been accused of plagiarism in a recent film he produced entitled, "Howard Cantour." Daniel Clowes, the author of the graphic novel, "Justin M. Damiano," has claimed that LaBeouf's movie was based on his work.

LaBeouf, who played Louis Stevens on the Disney Channel comedy, “Even Stevens,” has attempted to apologize to the author in an unconventional effort worthy of the character he played. He hired a skywriter to apologize over the skies of Los Angeles. However, it appears that the attorney for Clowes was not amused and has since threatened LaBeouf with legal action.

While most observers do not think Shia LaBeouf has retired permanently, he is currently joining the ranks of the 20-somethings who may have had enough of the limelight for a season: Selena Gomez, Amanda Bynes, and even Justin Beiber.
