Shia LaBeouf and his new girlfriend Margaret Qualley were spotted jogging in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday.
It comes after the Honey Boy actor’s, 34, attorney revealed that he is entering rehab following ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs’ lawsuit accusing him of ‘relentless abuse’ and ‘sexual assault’ during their relationship.
Shia and the 26-year-old daughter of Andie MacDowell were seen jogging together in the Pasadena neighbourhood after spending time together over Christmas.

The troubled actor wore a low-key look of black leggings, a green patterned anorak and a baseball cap.
Margaret also cut a casual figure in black gym leggings, an oversized red hoodie and a grey baseball cap for the jog.
The two have been spotted several times together over Christmas since their relationship went public after he picked her up at LAX Airport last week.
Shia and Margaret previously portrayed lovers in her big sister Rainey’s steamy music video for Love Me Like You Hate Me, which dropped October 24.
Lawsuit: It comes after the Honey Boy actor’s, 34, attorney revealed that he is entering rehab following ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs’ lawsuit accusing him of ‘relentless abuse’ and ‘sexual assault’ during their relationship
Last Thursday, it was revealed by Shia’s attorney that he is entering rehab after it was claimed that he has been fired by Olivia Wilde from her new movie and replaced by Harry Styles because of his ‘off-putting attitude.’
Shia is being sued by ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs who has claimed he knowingly infected her with an STD and ‘relentlessly abused’ her during their relationship.
Since she filed court papers earlier this month, the singer Sia has also come forward to accuse Shia of ‘conning’ her into an adulterous relationship with him. She called him a ‘pathological liar.’ He has also been accused of abuse by ex Karolyn Pho.
Questions also arose around his sudden departure from Olivia Wilde’s forthcoming movie, Don’t Worry Darling.

Shia had been picked for a role but left the project before it began shooting and has been replaced by Harry Styles.
When Twigs filed her lawsuit, Wilde publicly offered her support.
On Thursday, Variety published source quotes claiming that he was fired by Olivia because she has a ‘zero a**hole policy’ and his behaviour was ‘off-putting’.
‘He is not an easy guy to work with,’ the source claimed.

Shia’s attorney told Variety that they were looking for places for him to go to rehab.
‘Shia needs help and he knows that.
‘We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.’
After Twigs filed her lawsuit, Shia responded in an email to The New York Times saying: ‘I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behaviour made them feel.
‘I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalisations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years.
‘I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I’m ashamed of that history and am sorry to those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say.’
However, the Hollywood star insisted that ‘many of these allegations are not true’, but also said he owed the women ‘the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done’.
Twigs claimed in her lawsuit that she had tried to settle with Shia privately but that he refused.

His attorneys say that is not true and that he went to great lengths to settle.
In her lawsuit, Twigs alleges LaBeouf knowingly gave her an STD and abused her – both emotionally and physically – during their relationship.
The pair dated for less than a year before ending things in May 2019 with sources saying at the time the separation was down to her work schedule.
She claims that Shia had choked her, assaulted her at a gas station, locked her into a room and gave her a sexually transmitted disease without disclosing his health status beforehand.
Twigs also claimed in the court docs that he had demanded she sleep naked and kiss and touch him a certain amounts of times daily.
Twigs said she first met LaBeouf in 2018 when she starred in the Honey Boy movie he wrote, and the pair started dating after they finished filming.
She said he eventually convinced her to stay in Los Angeles with him instead of moving back to London where she is from.
In the lawsuit, she also claims in one part, that he forced her to sleep naked and that he kept a loaded gun by the bed. Twigs claims she feared going to the bathroom at night in case he thought she was an intruder and fired the gun.
It came around the time she was finishing her Magdalene record, which resulted in the album’s release having to be delayed several times and her tour rescheduled.
Twigs said she eventually started seeing a therapist who started helping her plan her exit.
