It has been over a month since FKA twigs filed a lawsuit against her ex Shia LaBeouf for relentless abuse and sexual battery.
“It is something in society that’s a really big problem and it’s really common, but for some reason we don’t talk about it,” she said on the Grounded with Louis Theroux podcast.
She revealed that she met him in 2019 on the set of his film Honey Boy and went through an “intense honeymoon period” which she said “is a signifier of how brilliant things can be. It sets the benchmark for if you behave well.”
The musician added, “If you fulfill all of the requirements and meet the rules, and all these things of the abuser, it can… be great,” she said, before adding he began testing her “emotional and spiritual boundaries.”
“Being nice to a waiter, or being polite to somebody, that could be seen as me flirting or wanting to engage in some sort of relationship with somebody else, when I’m literally just ordering pasta… I was told that I knew what he was like and if I loved him, I wouldn’t look men in the eye. That was my reality for a good four months,” she continued.
She alleged that he would count how many times she would kiss him in one day and was never sure “what the right number was.”
If she didn’t hit his quota, “he would start an argument with me, berate me for hours, make me feel like the worst person ever,” calling her a “terrible girlfriend.”
She said he also accused her of “staring at the ceiling and thinking about ways to leave him… accused me of not wanting to be with him. Accused me of wanting to be with somebody else. It would be always… between like four and seven in the morning.”
“All I can do is just think about myself when I’m 50 years old [and] I’ve got kids, I think about what I want to have stood for,” she shared. “This is something that was completely unexpected. I never thought anything like this would happen to me… when I’m older, if I have a daughter, I want to be able to say, ‘This thing happened to me. And I dealt with it.’ It’s a big thing to heal publicly and have to do it in front of everyone, but I can do it. I’m a big girl and I can do it.”
At the time she thought leaving him was “genuinely impossible. I felt so controlled and I felt so confused and I felt so low, beneath myself, that the fear of leaving and knowing I had all this work to do to get back to just feeling okay, it was completely overwhelming.”
Another famous entertainer also called out Shia as a pathological liar.
