Shia LaBeouf Accused Of Sexual Battery By Former Girlfriend
British singer FKA twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett filed a lawsuit against Shia LaBeouf stating the “Transformer star” being mentally and emotionally abusive. FKA twigs attorney, Bryan Freedman quotes “Shia LaBeouf has abused Ms.Barrett, Ms. Pho and others”
The pair dated each other between 2018 to 2019 after filming “Honey Boy” an autobiographical film featuring Shia LaBeouf’s unstable childhood with his father.
Ms. Barnett discussed the following allegations on her Twitter stating, “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. Which is why I have decided it’s important for me to talk about it and try to help people understand that when you are under the coercive control of an abuser or in an intimate partner violent relationship leaving doesn’t feel like a safe or achievable option.”
On Shia Labeouf’s defense to the New York Times, Shia Labeouf said “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.”
