Shia LaBeouf reconnects with his dad Jeffrey on Father's Day weekend as the pair stop by a used car dealership

Disgraced Daytime Emmy winner Shia LaBeouf spent Father's Day weekend with his registered sex offender dad Jeffrey Craig LaBeouf, and the pair were spotted at a used car dealership in Pasadena on Saturday.

The 'canceled' 36-year-old used to attend 12-step Alano Club meetings with the 'law-breaking, alcohol-abusing, heroin-addicted' 74-year-old - who was 15 years sober as of 2019.

'That was my daycare center. Then I'd go to work. That was my whole life,' Shia recalled to Esquire in 2018.

'A lot of my s*** has to do with my relationship with my dad. That dude is my gasoline...He's the whole reason I became an actor.'

Jeffrey - who served three tours of duty during the Vietnam War - earned 10% of his son's paychecks between 2000-2005 while working as a clown and hot dog vendor in Echo Park.

'He's my honey boy, my money honey! [Laughs.] You betcha. He's been a light in my life,' the senior LaBeouf gushed to Gen in 2019.

'Shia can be a bada**. He has that ability. But he is the sweetest, kindest soul. He's a wonderful person who went through some s***. I mean, he went through some s***. And now he's stepping into some amazing s***.'
