Shia LaBeouf didn’t know his wedding would be live-streamed online by TMZ, but he’s okay with that outcome all the same.
Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, LaBeouf talked about his viral ceremony with longtime partner Mia Goth.
“The plan was for it to be a private deal,” LaBeouf said of his wedding, which took place at the Viva Vegas Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. “And part of the package, the King Tut package, you get a live stream for free — part of the deal.”
As LaBeouf explained, he and Goth turned down the live-stream offer because both of their mothers were in attendance — instead opting for a private tape of the ceremony. It didn’t work out that way, however, as the wedding was broadcast online by TMZ.
“We get back home and it’s like, ‘Whoa, hey listen, something changed!’ I call them up and they said somebody pressed the wrong button that sends the video to TMZ,” LaBeouf said. “I said, I understood. I checked with my girl and she said, ‘Hey what are you gonna do?’ And ya know it’s love. We’re proud of it. It was love.”
LaBeouf and Goth are not officially married, per local Nevada officials. The pair participated in a “commitment ceremony,” according to the Clark County of Nevada clerk’s office.
