Shia LaBeouf is trending on Twitter, and that‘‍s not a good thing. The troubled “Transformers” actor was removed in handcuffs from a performance of the Broadway musical “Cabaret” Thursday, where he is alleged to have been smoking cigarettes, talking loudly throughout and even hitting other audience members on the behind.

Audience and cast members also tweeted that he wouldn’t sit down during the performance. He is charged with disorderly conduct and harassment, according to WABC News in New York.

LaBeouf, 28, was asked to leave but refused. He was seen crying as he talked to officers outside. He also made headlines in February at the Berlin Film Festival, where he exhibited strange behavior that included wearing a paper bag over his head.

ABC is seeing things from a different point of “View” now that Barbara Walters, who founded “The View” as a female-friendly gabfest, has retired. It was announced Thursday that Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd also are out, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole remaining cast member from the current group.

"The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season, and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively," ABC said in the statement announcing the hosts’‍ departure.

Courteney Cox and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid announced their engagement via Twitter, where the “Cougar Town”/“Friends” actress and her fiance wrote: "I'm engaged to him!" and "I'm engaged to her!"

US Weekly reported that back in April, friend Ed Sheeran revealed the couple were living together. Cox‘‍s divorce from David Arquette was finalized in May of last year.

LeVar Burton's "Reading Rainbow" fundraising effort is getting a potential $1 million boost from a generous pal, Seth MacFarlane.

The Associated Press reports that MacFarlane has promised to match up to that amount in pledges made on the Kickstarter website so that an online version of "Reading Rainbow" can be made available without charge to an expanded number of underfunded classrooms, Burton said in a statement Thursday.

MacFarlane's offer is in effect through 3 p.m. Wednesday, when the online fundraiser is to conclude.

Frank Sinatra’s first New Jersey driver’s license has sold for $15,757 at auction, according to The Associated Press.

The yellowed, text-only 1934 license was issued, typo and all, to Francis Sintra, 841 Garden Street, Hoboken, New Jersey.

The license was signed by the then-19-year-old a year before Sinatra got his first big break in the music industry.

His eyes, of course, are recorded as blue. His weight was 130 pounds.

Boston-based RR Auction didn’t disclose the buyer.

The deal also included a 1940 letter to the state Commissioner of Motor Vehicles from the lawyer of a man who’d been involved in a car crash with Sinatra, insisting Sinatra’s driving privileges be revoked until he pays up.
