FKA Twigs Sues Shia LaBeouf
Singer FKA Twigs real name Debrett Barnet, filed the lawsuit against LaBeouf in Los Angeles Supreme Court. The ‘two weeks’ singer is suing ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf of sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress. Twigs and LaBeouf met on the film set of ‘honey boy’.
The lawsuit alleges LaBeouf knowingly gave FKA Twigs an STD and abused her, including once in public at a LA gas station in February 2019. It is also claimed he forced her to sleep naked and that he kept a loaded gun by the bed.
Speaking of the lawsuit FKA has said:
‘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,’ she said.
‘He brought me so low, below myself, that the idea of leaving him and having to work myself back up just seemed impossible.
‘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.’

Shia has also commented on the law suit. He sais in a statement:
‘I owe these women the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those thing I have done. As someone in recovery, I have to face almost daily reminders of things I did say and do when I was drinking,’ he said.
‘It has always been easy for me to accept responsibility when my behavior reflects poorly on myself, but it’s much harder to accept the knowledge that I may have caused great pain to others. Can’t rewrite history. I can only accept it and work to be better in the future. I write this as a sober member of a twelve-step program and in therapy for my many failings.
‘I’m not cured of my PTSD and alcoholism, but I am committed to doing what I need to do to recover. And I will forever be sorry to the people that I may have harmed along the way.’
