in ,


Actor Shia LaBeouf revealed that his mother, Shayna Saide, has sadly passed away. The actor shared this with The Hollywood Reporter while addressing the counterclaims made by Olivia Wilde regarding his previous involvement in the movie, “Don’t Worry Darling.” 

Saide died on August 27 at the age of 80 as a result of heart failure, the outlet reported. LaBeouf said his mother was “full of fear in her last moments” and “frantic” when she passed, then went on to express how Saide passed along to him a connection to a higher power.

“Her greatest gift to me was to promote, in her dying, the necessity of a relationship with God,” LaBeouf said. “Not an interest, not just a belief, but a relationship built on proof as tangible as a hug.” He concluded by saying, “She was loved by many and known by too few. God bless you, Momma.” 

Saide was a visual artist, per Refinery29, who was raised in the Lower East Side of New York City, previously working as a traveling modern and jazz dancer. LaBeouf spoke about his love for his mother with Extra in 2009, per MTV, calling her “the most beautiful woman on this planet” before adding, “and I love her.” In response to Wilde maintaining that she fired the actor from “Don’t Worry Darling,” LaBeouf said, “It is what it is — every blessing to her and her film.”
