FKA twigs, aka Tahliah Debrett Barnett, has accused Shia LaBeouf, her former boyfriend, of "sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress" in a new lawsuit, New York Times reports. The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, also says that LaBeouf "knowingly" gave Barnett an STD, and describes incidents including this one that Barnett said took place not long after Valentines Day 2019. From New York Times:
Just after Valentine’s Day in 2019, the musician FKA twigs was in a car speeding toward Los Angeles. At the wheel was her boyfriend, the actor Shia LaBeouf. He was driving recklessly, she said in a lawsuit filed on Friday, removing his seatbelt and threatening to crash unless she professed her love for him.
They were returning from the desert, where Mr. LaBeouf, the star of “Transformers,” had raged at her throughout the trip, FKA twigs said in the lawsuit, once waking her up in the middle of the night, choking her. After she begged to be let out of the car, she said he pulled over at a gas station and she took her bags from the trunk. But Mr. LaBeouf followed, and assaulted her, throwing her against the car while screaming in her face, according to the suit. He then forced her back in the car.
