Shia LaBeouf and his girlfriend Mia Goth tied the knot this past Monday in Las Vegas. However, it turns out the whole thing might actually have been one of LaBeouf’s now infamous publicity stunts.
A tweet from the Twitter account of Clark County Nevada claims they have no record of a marriage license being issued for the couple.
LaBeouf livestreamed the entire ceremony, but now it’s starting to look like the whole thing may have been for show.
The pair had apparently opted for a combined Elvis Presley and Hawaiian theme with the ceremony being officiated by an Elvis impersonator.

During the livestreamed ceremony the Elvis impersonator says: “Mia and Shia, do you promise to adopt each other’s hound dogs? Not to wear your blue suede shoes in the rain?
“To always be each other’s teddy bear? And to give each other a hunka hunka burning love? Promise? Alright, well by the power invested in me – The King – I now pronounce you to be man and wife. Now Sir, you may kiss your lovely bride.”
LaBeouf has received a lot of media coverage for a series of increasingly bizarre publicity stunts over the past couple of years. These include a stunt where he livestreamed himself watching all the movies he’s ever been in back-to-back at the Angelika Film Center in New York.
LaBeouf and Goth have been dating on and off since 2012 where they met on the set of Nymphomaniac: Volume II
