FKA Twigs talks about being ‘gaslighting’ by Shia LaBeouf when they were dating; Shames him for shifting blame

FKA twigs recently opened up again detailing her relationship with Shia LaBeouf. After filing a lawsuit against her ex in December accusing him of physical and verbal abuse, the 33-year-old singer-songwriter had her first TV interview about the situation with Gayle King’s show CBS This Morning.  Previously, Shia has apologised after FKA’s lawsuit and said: “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.” 


To which, FKA replied now, in the interview: “I think it reminds me of some of the gaslighting I experienced when I was with him — the taking some of the blame, but not all of it and then denying it.” It was just yesterday that FKA went into more detail about her allegations of abuse, claiming he would “shameless brag” about shooting stray dogs, saying it helped him “get into character” for a role. 


In an extensive interview with Elle, FKA twigs also spoke about the allegation that he knowingly gave her an STD. Elle‘s writer described what happened: “In March 2019…twigs began experiencing symptoms of a possible STD and confronted LaBeouf. The actor confirmed he suffered from a sexually transmitted disease and had never told twigs about his condition before. In fact, in December 2018, LaBeouf had tried to hide his symptoms by applying makeup, ostensibly gaslighting twigs. Horrified by what she was hearing, the singer visited her doctor, where bloodwork confirmed that twigs had been infected with the same disease as LaBeouf.”
