How Netflix Is Distancing Itself From Shia LaBeouf Ahead of the Oscars
Soon after FKA twigs and one more Shia ex, Karolyn Pho, took part in a Dec. 11 interview with The New York Occasions to describe the alleged abuse they both experienced in the course of their respective interactions with the actor, Shia responded by emailing a statement to the publication. He also sent a individual email in which he said that “a lot of of these allegations are not true.”
“I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations,” he wrote in his statement. “I have been abusive to myself and all people around me for decades. I have a history of hurting the individuals closest to me. I am ashamed of that heritage and am sorry to all those I damage. There is practically nothing else I can really say.”
Some customers of Hollywood have previously voiced their help for FKA twigs, together with director Alma Har’el, who helmed Shia’s 2019 film Honey Boy.
“I have a deep regard for FKA Twigs’ braveness and resilience,” Alma said in a statement on Dec. 17. “Studying what she endured still left me heartbroken, and I stand with her in solidarity.”
