Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth definitely meant to get married in Las Vegas last week -- they just didn’t mean for everyone to watch it happen live online.
Thanks to TMZ, fans witnessed LaBeouf and Goth’s ceremony at the Viva Vegas Wedding Chapel -- officiated by an Elvis impersonator -- as it was happening, and that’s not how the “American Honey” actor was planning the big day to go.
“The plan was for it to be a private deal,” LaBeouf explained to Ellen DeGeneres during an interview. “Part of the package, the King Tut package, you get a live stream for free -- part of the deal.”
“I said, ‘You know, we don’t really need that, as a matter of fact. We’ll just take our private tape.’ We got our Moms there and they said, ‘No problem.’ We get back home and it’s like, ‘Whoa, hey listen, something changed.’”
That something was the TMZ livestream, which became a trending topic on Twitter.
“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 you know, it’s love. We’re proud of it. It was love.”
LaBeouf and Goth, for their parts, looked on the bright side of the mix-up. “[Our] dads couldn’t be there, so it was kind of nice to have them there watching in a way,” he said.
