Inside's Sia's Relationship With Shia LaBeouf

Actor Shia LeBeouf is currently fighting his ex, FKA Twigs, in court after she sued him for alleged physical, emotional and sexual abuse, People reports. Making the case more telling, Sia offered her support to FKA Twigs and added her own allegations to the legal action.

According to the outlet, FKA Twigs shared her experience with the New York Times, saying, "What I went through with Shia was the worst thing I've ever been through in the whole of my life," as she explained the abuse. "I'd like to be able to raise awareness on the tactics that abusers use to control you and take away your agency," the artist, born Tahliah Debrett Barnett, said.

LaBeouf didn't refute the claims. In an email to the newspaper, he said, "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."

As the legal proceedings progressed, Sia echoed Barnett's claims after the pair dated. "I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single," she said on Twitter.

LaBeouf starred in Sia's music video

Many remember Sia's controversial 2015 music video for her track, Elastic Heart, People notes. At the time, the actor was dating Mia Goth and Sia was married to filmmaker Erik Anders Lang, according to E! Online. The pair appear to have had a relationship around the same time as well. Following her initial allegations, Sia also voiced her support of Barnett, tweeting, "Also I love you ⁦@FKAtwigss. This is very courageous and I'm very proud of you."

The former Disney child-actor is no stranger to controversy and erratic behavior. After being kicked out of a Broadway theater in 2014 and getting arrested in 2017 for assault, LaBeouf has found himself in trouble with the law more than once, the outlet explains. He has a history of aggression in relationships, and has admitted his issues.

He told the New York Times that "many of these allegations are not true," and that he owed the women "the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done."

As for his plans to recover, he explained that he was "a sober member of a 12-step program" and was going to therapy. "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," LaBeouf added.
