Shia LaBeouf's ex FKA Twigs has been 'hugely traumatized' by 'troubled' actor after she accused him of 'abuse'
SHIA LaBeouf's ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs has been reportedly "hugely traumatized" by her relationship with the "troubled" actor, which has come to light following her allegations of "abuse."
A friend of the Even Stevens actor has come forward, disclosing intimate details of FKA Twigs' emotional state.
The insider spoke with The Post, and told the outlet that Shia, 34, is an “extremely troubled individual."
They added that the relationship has been “hugely traumatizing for Twigs" and alluded to the fact that FKA, formally known as Tahliah Debrett Barnett, is haunted by the past.
“Shia having a gun by the side of the bed and her fearing to go to the bathroom at night — it’s a primal fear to be stuck feeling helpless in the dark," they divulged.
In a lawsuit filed on December 10th, FKA claimed to be in an "emotionally, physically and sexually abusive relationship" with Shia.
In the shocking legal action, FKA accused the actor of choking her, deliberately giving her an STD, and inflicting emotional abuse on her.
FKA, 32, was in an exclusive relationship with the Emmy award winner for just a year until their break up in 2019.
The couple first met when she starred in Honey Boy, Shia's directorial debut in the form of a semi-autobiographical story of his life.
The Transformers actor has publicly responded to the accusations, telling the New York Times: “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.”
Later, Shia denied some of the claims, writing in an email that “many of these allegations are not true.”
However, he did admit that the women who have come forward deserve “the opportunity to air their statements publicly" and that he will "accept accountability for those things I have done.”
Among those who have spoken out are singer Sia, song-writer Katy Rose, and costume designer Karolyn Pho.
Sia, 45, took to her Twitter to admit: "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."
She praised FKA for coming forward, writing: "Also I love you @FKAtwigs This is very courageous and I'm very proud of you."
Shia was featured in Sia's Elastic Heart music video in 2015 alongside then 13-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler.
FKA returned love to Sia and supported her bravery, saying: "I'm sorry @Sia this reinforces why I had to publicly share my experience. we need to support each other <3."
"You're an inspiration and thank you, everyone, for your love and solidarity <3," she closed.
Among many claims in the publicized lawsuit, FKA explicated a horrific moment on February 14, 2019, when she alleged he was "driving recklessly" with her in the car, and "threatened to crash unless she professed her love for him."
After begging him to release her from the vehicle, he reportedly stopped at a gas station, "threw her against the car," and shouted at her before forcing her back in.
The electronic dance music star contended that she didn't go to the police in concern for his career.
FKA spoke to the New York Times about their troubled relationship, maintaining her difficulty in leaving the celebrity.
"The whole time I was with him, I could have bought myself a business-flight plane ticket back to my four-story townhouse in Hackney, London.
"He brought me so low, below myself, that the idea of leaving him and having to work myself back up just seemed impossible," she explained.
Shia has said that he is currently "a sober member of a 12-step program" and is working in therapy.
Shia's father Jeffrey LaBeouf, now 72, has a similar history with abuse, as he was placed on the sex offender registry for life after attempting to commit rape on a stranger inside of her car in 1981.
A legal expert recently told Daily Mail that new changes to the sex offender registry may allow the celeb's dad to return to the states after spending years of his life in Costa Rica.
