Margaret Qualley shares her support for FKA Twigs. On Saturday, Qualley shared a photo on Instagram of a Elle magazine cover with FKA, who brought abuse allegations against Shia LaBeouf in December. “Thank you,” Qualley captioned in his post.
ET learned in early January that Qualley and LaBeouf had split a few months after they were first seen together; FKA dated LaBeouf for about a year after meeting when she was cast in her 2019 film. Honey boy.
In its December lawsuit against LaBeouf, FKA charged him with “relentless abuse,” including sexual assault, battery and emotional distress. LaBeouf responded to FKA’s claims in emails to The New York Times, writing in part that “many of these accusations are not true.”
FKA spoke more about his relationship with LaBeouf on CBS this morning Thursday.
After detailing LaBeouf’s alleged abuse, FKA said it had not initially planned to file a lawsuit against him. Instead, he first asked her to help him and donate money to an organization like the helpline that had provided a “real turnaround time for everything.”
FKA claimed that LaBeouf did not do what she requested, prompting her to file the lawsuit. After she did, LaBeouf emailed a statement to The New York Times.
“I am not in a position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations,” he wrote in part. “I have been abusive to myself and everyone around me for years. I have a history of hurting the people closest to me. I am ashamed of that history and I feel sorry for those I have hurt. There is nothing else that I really can. tell. “
“I have not been cured of my PTSD and alcoholism,” he continued, noting that he was in therapy and was a sober member of a 12-step program. “But I am committed to doing what I have to do to recover, and I will forever mourn people for hurting me along the way.”
LaBeouf’s statement, FKA said, reminded him of “some of the gas bombardments that I experienced when I was with him,” where he would take “some but not all of the blame.”
