Sia claims Shia LaBeouf is ‘sick puppy’ amid abuse allegations
Twigs (real name Tahliah Barnett) filed a lawsuit against LaBeouf in December, accusing him of sexual assault, assault and emotional distress during their relationship, which lasted just over a year.
Shortly after Barnett went public, Sia accused LaBeouf of being a ‘pathological liar’ who ‘duped’ her into an adulterous relationship. The singer also shared her support for Twigs, writing, “It’s very brave and I’m very proud of you.”
LaBeouf’s legal team denied “all allegations” against the actor earlier this week (February 10).
Speaking in a new interview with Sunday Times, Sia gave more details about her past relationship with LaBeouf, revealing that she felt she would “always” love him.
“It turned out he was using the same lines on me and Twigsy, and we finally found out because we ended up talking to each other,” she said. “We both thought we were dating him alone.
“But it wasn’t. And he was still married.
The Australian singer-songwriter went on to say that the actor “wanted to marry me and live a sober life” together.
“I feel like I’m always going to love him because he’s such a sick puppy,” she added.
Barnett responded to Sia’s first comments about LaBeouf on Twitter in December, writing: “I’m sorry [Sia] it reinforces the reason why I had to publicly share my experience. We have to support each other
Last month, Twigs spoke about his experience on Louis Theroux Based Podcast, explaining that she wanted to talk “because it’s something in society that’s a really big deal and it’s really common, but for some reason we don’t talk about it.”
She added: “People often ask the victim or survivor, ‘Why didn’t you go? Instead of asking the abuser, “Why are you holding someone hostage because of abusive behavior?”
“It’s a good question for you to ask me, but it weighs heavily on me. It puts a lot on the victims and survivors.
Weeks after Twigs first accused LaBeouf of abuse, his lawyer said the actor was looking to get into a rehab center to treat his drug addiction and psychological issues.
