In 2020, Fka Twigs filed a lawsuit against actor Shia LaBeouf, accusing the actor of “relentless abuse,” sexual battery, assault, and emotional distress. They will now officially be heading to court on April 17, 2023.
During an interview with The New York Times in late 2020, Twigs said, “What I went through with Shia was the worst thing I’ve ever been through in the whole of my life. I don’t think people would ever think that it would happen to me. But I think that’s the thing. It can happen to anybody.”
LaBeouf responded to the claims at the time, telling the NY 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.”
