FKA Twigs is suing her ex boyfriend, actor Shia LaBeouf, for sexual battery, assault, and emotional distress.
Full story below…
The singer filed suit in Los Angeles and the allegations are jaw-dropping.
She asserts that that LaBeouf, who she dated from 2018 to 2019, knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease.
Holistically, the detailed filing accuses the “relentless abuse” in multiple capacities.
It reads: “Shia LaBeouf hurts women. He uses them. He abuses them, both physically and mentally. He is dangerous.”
LaBeouf is accused of slamming the musician against a car and allegedly attempted to strangle her. It’s also alleged that he once pulled out a gun, telling her he had killed stray dogs, so that he could practice getting into the mindset of a killer.
Twigs told the NYT she isn’t suing for money, but rather to warn women of LaBeouf’s ways and that of men like him.
Her suit declared:
“This action has been brought not for personal gain, but to set the record straight, and to help ensure that no more women must undergo the abuse that Shia LaBeouf has inflicted on his prior romantic partners. The days in which LaBeouf can mistreat and harm women with impunity are over.”
LaBeouf, was quizzed for a response prior to the publishing of the report, told the same publication:
“I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. 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. There is nothing else I can really say.”
As for a specific response to the lawsuit, LaBeouf has yet to make public comment.
