Shia LaBeouf said a couple of weeks back that Megan Fox left the Transformers franchise because she didn't like the way director Michael Bay dealt with her sexuality. But it turns out that her reasons for leaving had little to do with sexuality, and everything to do with Hitler.

Back in 2009, Fox, who'd been turned into a star by the first two Transformers films, said of Bay that:

"He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. ... He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is."

Shortly after that, Fox was gone from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and there was a lot of back and forth over whether she was fired or whether she quit. But the truth is now out—because Bay has revealed that:

"You know the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, fire her right now."

We look forward to hearing Fox's next salvo in this Hollywood feud. Because you KNOW there'll be one.

So what do you think? Have we finally gotten to the truth of the matter?
