Australian singer-songwriter Sia has accused actor Shia LaBeouf of conning her into an adulterous relationship, a day after the latter was sued for relentless abuse by ex-girlfriend FKA twigs.
“I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single,” wrote Sia on her Twitter account over the weekend.
I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single. I believe he's very sick and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you love yourself- stay safe, stay away. https://t.co/2NNEj9w8b1— sia (@Sia) December 13, 2020
The 44-year-old artist did not provide further details of her allegation.
It can be remembered that the 34-year-old actor starred in Sia’s 2015 music video ‘Elastic Heart’ alongside dancer Maddie Ziegler.
“I believe he’s very sick and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you love yourself – stay safe, stay away.”
The allegations from Sia come in the wake of a controversy that sparked after singer FKA twigs sued Shia LaBeouf for relentless abuse, saying that she suffered during their relationship. FKA twigs and LaBeouf started dating in 2018.
In a follow-up tweet, Sia expressed her support for FKA twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett.
“Also I love you @FKAtwigs. This is very courageous and I’m very proud of you.”
FKAtwigs described her relationship with LaBeouf as the “worst thing I’ve ever been through in the whole of my life.”
“I don’t think people would ever think that it would happen to me,” said FKA twigs. “But I think that’s the thing. It can happen to anybody.”
The singer alleges extensive physical, emotional and mental abuse by LaBeouf, including at one point allegedly waking her up “in the middle of the night, choking her.” In another incident, LaBeouf allegedly drove recklessly, “removing his seatbelt and threatening to crash unless she professed her love for him.”
Aside from FKA twigs, another ex-girlfriend of LaBeouf also accused him of pinning her to a bed and headbutting her, causing her to bleed.
The actor was also caught on tape in 2015 threatening his ex-wife Mia Goth, stating he “would’ve killed her” after they got in a serious argument.
LaBeouf, who starred in ‘The Peanut Butter Falcon’ and ‘Fury’, issued a statement in response to the article about FKA twigs.
“I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel,” wrote LaBeouf. “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.”
