FKA Twigs breaks silence on her past relationship with Shia LaBeouf that was nothing short of a turmoil. The English singer disclosed her experience with the actor in a December suit that she filed against him.
According to reports, this suit contained information similar to another one of LaBeouf’s alleged victims.
The suit recounted how the “Honey Boy” star occasionally abused Twigs mentally, emotionally and physically. It is unclear how these allegations will play out in court, but from a distance, LaBeouf might have found himself in a difficult situation.
LaBeouf’s Response To Twigs’ Allegations
When Twigs disclosed what she allegedly went through in the hands of her former boyfriend, it did not take too long for the news to circulate on social media.
The “Cellophane” singer’s fans were filled with rage. However, LaBeouf denied ever abusing Twigs or anyone for that matter. He also went on to say that the singer has never sustained any physical harm by his actions.
How Did A Love Story Become An Abuse Situation?
Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, had a sit down with CBS’ Gayle King and explained how her once loving relationship with LaBeouf became a dreadful experience for her.
She started off by saying that the relationship was swarmed with “red flags,” but the love she had for the actor, was enough to overlook those flags. She went on to say that the actor started off by scaling a fence into her home, to bring her flowers.
Although she thought it romantic at the time, she soon came to a realization that it was cutting through her boundaries.
The Emotional Abuse Phase
Still speaking about her ordeal, Twigs said that her ex-boyfriend was “love-bombing” her. She explained this by saying he would start off by appreciating her and telling her how amazing she was in everything.
However, as time went on, he switched to degrading and always finding fault with her or the way she did things.
Twigs went on to allege that to appease the man she was in love with, she had to display more affection throughout the day, which was quite exhausting for her.
The Physical Abuse Phase
Twigs alleged in the discussion with King that LaBeouf did not stop at emotional abuse, rather, he transcended to physicality, which was when she realized she had to leave immediately.
She claimed the actor always made threats to hurt her if she ever thought of leaving him. The “Sad Day” singer also went on to say LaBeouf once rammed her against his car at a gas station and started strangling her.
Twigs mentioned to King that she initially asked LaBeouf to seek help privately, but when he refused, she filed a lawsuit against him.
