Right after FKA twigs accused Shia LaBeouf of “relentless abuse,” submitting a lawsuit against him on Friday, Sia tweeted her personal tale of emotional distress at the arms of the actor.
On Saturday, Sia tweeted a link to the New York Times tale that broke the news about FKA twigs’s lawsuit, crafting, “I much too have been harm emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous romantic relationship declaring to be single. I think he’s very ill and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you enjoy yourself- stay risk-free, stay absent.” She additional in a abide by-up tweet, “Also I adore you @FKAtwigs This is incredibly brave and I’m incredibly proud of you.” LaBeouf starred in the singer’s songs video for her tune “Elastic Heart” along with her longtime muse, teenager dancer Maddie Ziegler.
FKA twigs expressed her assistance for her fellow musician, retweeting Sia’s claim and responding, “i’m sorry @Sia this reinforces why i had to publicly share my working experience. we have to have to help each other <3.” To her second tweet, she added, “love you back @Sia you’re an inspiration and thank you everyone for your love and solidarity <3.”
In her allegations against the actor, FKA twigs, who was born Tahliah Debrett Barnett, accused LaBeouf of sexual battery, assault, the infliction of emotional distress, and knowingly giving her a sexually transmitted disease. Allegations were seconded by another of his ex-girlfriends, stylist Karolyn Pho, who says she experienced similarly tumultuous incidents with the actor.
In response to the allegations from both FKA twigs and Pho, LaBeouf wrote in an email to the 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.”
