Shia Leboeuf in turmoil. The American actor is the target of a complaint from his ex-girlfriend filed in Los Angeles court. British singer FKA Twigs accuses him of domestic violence. The New York Times reveals that the artist accuses the star of the Transformers saga of physical and psychological violence for acts that occurred in 2019. The daily reports that Shia Leboeuf would have adopted dangerous behavior in the car, driving unconsciously and threatening to create an accident if FKA Twigs didn’t prove their love to her. She accuses Shia Leboeuf in particular of having tried to strangle her, pushed and abused several times.
The relationship between Shia Leboeuf and FKA Twigs will have lasted a year. If she publicized her complaint, it was to shed light on moral harassment. “I want to raise awareness of the tactics the executioners use to gain control over you,” she told The New York Times. This is not the first complaint filed against the actor: another ex-girlfriend of the star also accused him of violence.
The actor admits the facts
In a letter to the American daily, Shia Leboeuf admitted his abusive behavior. “I have been violent towards myself and everyone around me for years. (…) I have no excuse for my alcoholism and my assaults. I am ashamed of it and I apologize to the ones I hurt. I can’t say anything else. ” In its filing of complaint, FKA Twigs declared that it wanted to donate part of its possible gains in the trial to associations fighting against domestic violence.
