In an expansive Elle\u00a0cover story,\u00a0FKA twigs\u00a0elaborated further about her experience with former partner and Honey Boy co-star Shia LaBeouf, who she sued for sexual battery, assault and abuse in December 2020. In a Zoom interview from her London home, the singer said that "It's a miracle I came out alive." Continuing, Twigs described the events of Valentine's Day 2019 when she said that she woke up to LaBeouf with his hands around her neck, "beginning to strangle her" in a hotel. The next day, she said that he drove erratically, speeding and demanding she "profess her love for him." The singer says that escaping the relationship was down to "luck," telling the magazine, "I honestly wish I could say that I found some strength and I saw this light. I wish I could say, \u2018 a testament to my strong character,\u2019 or \u2018It\u2019s the way my mother raised me.\u2019 It\u2019s none of that. It\u2019s pure luck that I\u2019m not in that situation anymore." As a strong, successful woman, Twigs says, "People wouldn\u2019t think that it would happen to a woman like me. The biggest misconception is, \u2018Well, you\u2019re smart. If it was that bad, why didn\u2019t you leave?\u2019" She wants to make it clear: "It can happen to anyone.\u201d The COVID lockdown, which means that victims are potentially quarantined with their abusers, "made me realize I need to come forward and talk about my experience," twigs says. "What I went through with my abuser is, hands down, the worst thing in the whole of my life," twigs told Elle. "Recovering has been the hardest thing I\u2019ve ever tried to do." As with the recent accusations against Marilyn Manson, LaBeouf's accusers bring up the toxic entertainment industry culture that allows the behavior to continue as long as the money is flowing. \u201cI\u2019m not here to throw people under the bus, but I\u2019d be lying if I didn\u2019t say that there people who were very close to him who knew exactly what was going on," twigs tells Elle. Traveling with LaBeouf to the Sundance Film Festival in January 2019 to promote\u00a0Honey Boy, she says, \u201cThere people who have worked with Shia that I openly spoke to about the abuse that I was going through. The reaction that I got was pretty much, \u2018Okay. Well, it\u2019s Sundance.\u2019\u2009\u201d According to Elle, Twigs\u2019s lawyer Bryan Freedman put out a statement recently, saying LaBeouf was initially unwilling \u201cto receive meaningful and consistent psychological treatment,\u201d while the actor\u2019s new legal representative, Shawn Holley, told\u00a0Variety\u00a0that \u201cShia immediately accepted responsibility for the many things he had done wrong,\u201d and it was twigs\u2019s legal team that canceled mediation. Recently, singer Sia also spoke out about her relationship with LaBeouf, calling him a "pathological liar" and saying\u00a0she'd been conned into an\u00a0adulterous relationship with the actor.
