Singer FKA Twigs has filed a lawsuit against her former partner Shia LaBeouf, claiming the actor was physically and emotionally abusive during their relationship.
FKA Twigs claims Shia LaBeouf once slammed her against a car when she tried to escape at a petrol station and forced her back in.
“He uses them, he abuses them, both physically and mentally. He is dangerous.”
it may be surprising to you to learn that i was in an emotionally and physically abusive relationship. it was hard for me to process too, during and after i never thought something like this would happen to me.— FKA twigs (@FKAtwigs) December 11, 2020
The 32-year-old British singer, whose real name is Tahlia Barnett, says LaBeouf left her in a state of fear and humiliation after allegedly throwing her into the side of a car, knowingly giving her a sexually transmitted disease and attempting to strangle her.
According to the lawsuit, LaBeouf demanded total loyalty from FKA Twigs after being convinced to move in with him, with her claiming the actor isolated her from her family and friends.
She also claims that she woke up on Valentine’s Day in 2019 to LaBeouf choking her, and that he later threatened to crash her car if she did not profess her eternal love for him.
Responding, LaBeouf said in an email to the New York Times: “I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalisations. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years.
“I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I’m ashamed of that history and am sorry to those I hurt.”
He adds that he is currently in recovery for alcoholism and PTSD, saying he “will forever be sorry to the people that I may have harmed along the way”.
Other women have spoken to the paper and made further allegations against the actor.
La Beouf says many allegations in the lawsuit, as well as ones made by other women, are “not true”.
The pair met on the set of LaBeouf’s autobiographical film Honey Boy, in which FKA Twigs had a supporting role.
