Shia LaBeouf has been trapped in controversy after his ex, FKA Twigs, accused him of sexual abuse. The actor, who was known for his role in the Transformers franchise hit a low in his career after the allegations came forward. The actor was also recently removed from Olivia Wilde’s upcoming movie, Don’t Worry Darling.
The actor took a long hiatus from acting, once the allegations against him surfaced. He was accused of choking her, threatening to crash her car, and also giving her a sexually transmitted disease knowingly. The trial for the same begins in April 2023.
Shia LaBeouf opens up about the sexual abuse allegations
The actor recently appeared on Real Ones with Jon Benthral, on the show he addressed the recent controversies surrounding him and his struggles with relationships and his career as an actor. Shia LaBeouf revealed to Jon Benthral that when the allegations came forward he hit rock bottom and that “the woman(probably FKA Twigs) destroyed any wiggle room(i.e. some space to get out of the downfall)” and he hit “rock bottom.”
Shia LaBeouf shared, “Bottom isn’t when you experience the worst moment of your life, bottom is when you change.” He further revealed that received an email he “forgot to breathe, as the subtext of the email was ‘your hustle’s over.'” The actor even contemplated suicide, “I loaded up a gun and sat at the table for two minutes thinking ‘All my ideas had failed.'”
Shia LaBeouf talks about an anonymous woman
Further, in the video, LaBeouf talked about an anonymous woman that was living with him when the allegations surfaced. He said that she wasn’t his wife or the woman who accused him of abuse. He said he was advised by a person from “60 Dudes”, who was helping him to get rid of the relationship he was in as it would help him get over it. He even confessed, “I was using this woman like drugs.”

He also said that the woman left him when he got back from a session, and she told him to “go get better.” He went to Utah for three months and his phone was taken away from him, the actor said that is what he needed to rediscover himself. He said, “I fucked up bad. Like crash and burn type shit. [I] hurt a lot of people, and I’m fully aware of that. And I’m going to owe for the rest of my life.”
It seems the actor is finally owning up to the mistakes
The actor throughout the interview talked about how he messed up and hurt people while dealing with his personal issues.
“When I think about what my life has become, and what it is now, like what my purpose is now… I need to be useful. And when I look at this #MeToo environment, there’s not a whole lot of dudes that are taking accountability.”
LaBeouf confessed that he cheated on every woman he was with and did not tell his partners about having cold sores. He further added:
“I’m in the tribe of the fuck-ups. I’m a very public sinner, a very fallible person in the public sphere, What I think now my purpose is, is to not do… the other examples that we’ve had of how to navigate something like this — which is to go after the woman, or try to win a court case, or get back into a fucking movie or like get back on at all.”
“My purpose, and I mean this with every fiber of my being, is to be instructive with my life, so that I can be an advertisement, like a billboard, for a principled way of living.”
The actor seems to have finally confessed that the accusations against him might be right. Looking at his statements in the interview, he wants to redeem himself and fix the mistakes that he has made. And if the allegations made by FKA Twigs against him really true, it seems he is ready to take the responsibility for it. Or is it all just a show?
How this finally turns out to be would finally be known in court next year.
