FKA twigs sues Shia LaBeouf, Shia LaBeouf Rehab

After British singer-songwriter FKA twigs filed a lawsuit against ex-boyfriend and Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf for “relentless abuse”, he is reportedly seeking “long-term inpatient treatment” centres. The actor made headlines when the 32-year-old British singer FKA twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, accused LaBeouf of physical, emotional and mental abuse in a lawsuit. Earlier this month, she alleged that when they were dating between 2018 and 2019, the Transformers actor was “abusive” and accused him of choking her, giving her a sexually transmitted disease, and “sexual battery” in a new lawsuit. The two split in 2019 after a year of dating.

According to Mirror, LaBeouf is now seeking treatment in rehab. His lawyer has revealed that the Hollywood actor is seeking help that he “desperately needs”, according to The New York Times. His legal team told Variety in a statement: “Shia needs help and he knows that. We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.”

FKA twigs accused La Beouf of abuse

FKA twigs called LaBeouf the “worst thing I’ve ever been through in the whole of my life.”

Reportedly, her lawyer said that the singer filed the lawsuit after LaBeouf was allegedly “unwilling to agree to get appropriate help” when they tried to settle out of the public eye.

Recently, it was also reported that LaBeouf was “fired” from a forthcoming movie after allegedly demonstrating “poor behaviour”. According to Variety, he was originally cast in Olivia Wilde’s psychological thriller Don’t Worry Darling. However, the actor was later dropped. As per reportsMarvel Studios was also considering him in an upcoming superhero project.

In response, FKA Twig’s lawyer said, “This isn’t about Shia’s career, this is about making sure the trauma and pain inflicted on my clients and others doesn’t happen again.”

Shia LaBeouf’s statement

LaBeouf’s lawyer told the online publication, “When these allegations first came up a year ago, Shia immediately accepted responsibility for the many things he had done wrong and expressed his willingness to do what Twigs wanted him to do, almost all of which were perfectly reasonable.”

“To that end, he paid for, scheduled, rescheduled (when she changed the date), and travelled from another country to attend the mediation set up by the lawyers for both sides. When Twigs’ lawyer cancelled the mediation, Shia’s lawyer tried to get it rescheduled. Shia’s position has never changed and I have reached out to Mr. Freedman to see how things might get back on track,” he added.

According to a BBC report, the actor also accepted he had “been abusive” to himself and “everyone around me for years”.

The musician and the actor worked together on the film Honey Boy.
