In December last year, singer FKA Twigs sued actor Shia LaBeouf for sexual assault and physical and mental abuse. Now, the 33-year-old British artist, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, has offered details of the ordeal she lived with the actor, who publicly acknowledged having committed violence against former partners.
In a BBC podcast, the singer detailed everything the emotional damage caused by her ex and confessed that she lived "scared, intimidated and controlled" and that when she decided to leave the interpreter, after months of violence and abuse, she suffered post-traumatic syndrome.
In a talk with journalist Louis Theroux, the artist said that she met LaBeouf on the set of the movie "Honey Boy" in 2018. After "an intense honeymoon period at the beginning," according to her, the actor became more "jealous and controlling." They dated for nine months until they broke up in May 2019. The end came when she decided to use a domestic violence hotline so she could leave her famous boyfriend.
FKA Twigs reported that LaBeouf would not allow her to make eye contact with other men . He commented that if he tried to be nice to a waiter or be polite to someone, Shia would see him as if he was flirting or wanted to get into some kind of relationship with someone else. “He told me that if I wanted to, I wouldn't look other men in the eye. So that was my reality for about four months at the end of the relationship, ”he recalled.
That withdrawal caused him to isolate himself from his loved ones as well. "I just lived in a regulated and contained life that gave me the least possible problems," he added.
also claimed that one of the ways the 34-year-old actor exercised his control over her was by counting the number of times she kissed him per day . When she did not meet the number set by him, an argument broke out for hours.
“I had a quota to meet kisses and caresses, but I never knew exactly what the number was. If I didn't reach it, he would scold me for hours and make me feel like the worst person in the world, ” explained the 33-year-old singer.
According to FKA twigs, the actor woke her up between four and seven in the morning just to accuse her of a variety of nonsensical things that only existed in his head . This situation developed in the singer post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) .
“He accused me of looking at the ceiling and thinking of ways to leave him, of not wanting to be with him. It was always between four and seven in the morning. During the quarantine, anything that woke me up at night, even if it was my dog or a noise outside, would trigger an intense panic attack, because I was left with PTSD ”, he revealed.
When on December 11, FKA Twigs reported the situation, In the media and through his networks, he wrote: “I never thought that something like this could happen to me. I hope that sharing my experience will really help others to feel that they are not alone ”.
After hearing the charges against him filed in a Los Angeles court, the actor said that he also suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, of which he was not cured, nor from alcoholism. "But I am willing to do whatever it takes to recover, and I will always apologize to those I have hurt along the way," he said.
"I am not in a position to tell anyone how they should feel about my behavior. I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting people close to me. I am ashamed of that story and sorry for those I have hurt. I can not say anything else, "concluded his statement.
The renowned Australian singer Sia also publicly exposed the actor. "I have also been emotionally hurt by Shia, a pathological liar, who cheated on me in an adulterous relationship saying he was single, " the artist tweeted about the actor who appeared in her video clip for "Elastic Heart" in 2015. And warned the women who " stay away " from the Hollywood star. “I think he is very ill. You just have to know, if you love yourself, stay safe, stay away. "
