Shia LaBeouf and his girlfriend, Karolyn Pho, have split after two years of dating one another, according to reports.
Rumors that the pair had split have gone on for some time, and according to a source, the couple actually split "a while ago." The report added that LaBeouf left no time to spare however, and was spotted recently flirting with a new girl.
The "Transformers" actor was seen "cozying up" to a blonde this past Saturday at L.A.'s Magic Castle according to Us Weekly, who first reported the break up. In past interviews, Laeouf credited Pho with helping him to mature.
He and Pho met in 2011 while at a Karaoke club, which was during the same time that LaBeouf faced troubles after getting in to two separate altercations. During the first altercation he was handcuffed but later released without arrest. In the second, he was thrown from the facility.
"I'm not happy with it, but I don't think it's a calamity," Laeouf told Us of the incident in a 2011 interview.
His breakup with Pho was followed by a public argument that the two had in August after Pho allegedly discovered that LaBeouf would take part in intimate scenes for his next film.
"They've been on the rocks ever since Shia agreed to star in Nymphomaniac," a source told Radar Online. "Karolyn doesn't want him having sex with somebody else- simple. She's begged Shia to ask Lars if it's possible to make the scenes appear real, rather than shoot them real."
Pho later revealed that she was unhappy that the conversation was made public, but stated that they were doing fine as a couple.
"It's none of anybody's business. Everything is fine with us. It was nothing affiliated with his movie," she told the Daily News. "We're normal people who have normal lives."
