FKA TWIGS has accused her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf of choking her, giving her an STD, and sexual battery in a new lawsuit.
The singer, 32, and the troubled actor, 34, were together for a year until they split in 2019.
According to the lawsuit obtained by the New York Times, FKA Twigs — whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett — claimed the Transformers star abused her “physically, emotionally, and mentally many times in a relationship that lasted just short of a year.”
She accused him of “relentless abuse,” including sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress.
Shia also “knowingly” gave her a Sexually Transmitted Disease, she said.
Shia told The New York Times in an email: “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.”
In a separate email after he was presented with the claims and the lawsuit, he told New York Times that “many of these allegations are not true,” but that he owed the women “the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done.”
He also added that he was “a sober member of a 12-step program” and was currently in therapy.
He said: “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.”
