Shia LaBeouf is getting ‘Me Too-ed’: Here’s what we know
By the looks of it, the year might not end before Shia LaBeouf gets his piece of ‘Me Too’ cake. The famous actor and Sway’s rap hyena has been exposed as an alleged abusive partner in court documents recently filed by his ex FKA Twigs.
FKA Twigs details trauma of LaBeouf abuse
Multiple reports have come out confirming that LaBeouf and Twigs’ private relationship has ended in full public display. Not only is the eclectic cellophane singer suing the actor for physical and sexual abuse, but she has also stood in front of the scandal and spoke out about it.
Sharing the link to Twigs’ tell-all with New York Times, Sia labelled LaBeouf — her former lover — a ‘pathological liar’ and a ‘very sick’ man.
I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single. I believe he's very sick and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you love yourself- stay safe, stay away. https://t.co/2NNEj9w8b1— sia (@Sia) December 13, 2020
Shia LaBeouf speaks on Twigs lawsuit
The man in question has, for the most part, kept away from addressing anything on social media. However, he did send a number of emails to the Times admitting that he has “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,” he wrote.
It’s still unclear if LaBeouf is going to contest the lawsuit but Twigs’ lawyer Bryan Freedman spoke candidly to People, suggesting that this court action would have never surfaced if the actor had agreed to certain conditions demanded by the singer.
“We tried to resolve this matter privately on the condition that Mr LaBeouf agrees to receive meaningful and consistent psychological treatment. Since he was unwilling to agree to get appropriate help, Ms Barnett filed this suit to prevent others from unknowingly suffering similar abuse by him,” Freedman said.
