Shia LaBeouf is stuck in a self-destructive downward spiral with friends urging him to seek professional help, we can reveal.

The latest embarrassment for the Transformers star saw him being punched in the face by a shirtless man while lying on the ground after the pair were thrown out of a bar in Canada earlier this month.

Shockingly a man who intervened to try and break up the fight claims Shia threatened him with a knife.

Shea Carter claims the Hollywood actor made throat-slashing gestures at him and said, “Well what if I grabbed my knife on you?” Although he said he did not actually see a knife.

After his latest outburst, friends of Shia are now urging him to seek anger management counselling.

The Hollywood star dated Carey Mulligan, who he met while filming Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, for 15 months until October last year and managed to stay out of trouble during this time.

But since splitting up, incidents of Shia becoming drunk and aggressive are becoming more frequent.

In August he started spitting drinks at his girlfriend Karolyn Pho and Marilyn Manson during a night out in Hollywood. Then back in February he was restrained by police after being involved in a fight in Los Angeles.

Despite having a string of the world’s most beautiful ladies amongst his exes, including his Transformers 3 co-star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who he got close with while he was still with Carey, it’s thought the news that Carey really has moved on is what's sent Shia over the edge.

Carey recently became engaged to Mumford And Sons lead singer Marcus, and the news no doubt came as a nasty shock for Shia.

The Public Enemies actress first met Marcus in February after attending one of his gigs, and a whirl-wind romance has left her recently sporting a large sparkly ring on her engagement finger.

Back in June, Shia opened up about Carey, stating, “I still love her. I think she’s a f****** awesome person and an incredible actress.”

Which was shockingly nice for the Hollywood actor compared to his recollections of other former flames.

He explained his current on-off relationship with Karolyn as “mundane” and “not-that-exciting”. He described his time with Transformers co-star Isabel Lucas as “sort of disastrous”. Rihanna got simply, “It never got beyond one date. The spark wasn’t there,” and poor Hilary Duff fared even worse with, “probably the worst date either of us have ever had.” Ouch!
