Margaret Qualley, Shia LaBeouf’s ex, shows support for FKA Twigs

Margaret Qualley, the former girlfriend of Shia LaBeouf, showed support Saturday for FKA Twigs, who has spoken out about her allegedly abusive relationship with the 34-year-old actor.

Taking to Instagram, Qualley, 26, posted a photo of Twigs on the cover of Elle magazine, where the 33-year-old singer detailed the “systematic” abuse she allegedly endured from LaBeouf.

“Thank you,” Qualley captioned her post.

Qualley and LaBeouf reportedly split in January amid accusations that he abused Twigs.

In December, Twigs — whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett — filed a lawsuit against LaBeouf for their allegedly abusive relationship, accusing the “Transformers” star of sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress, the New York Times reported.

The two had met in 2018 when Twigs joined the cast of LaBeouf’s 2019 film “Honey Boy.” They began dating after filming wrapped.

LaBeouf has since denied “each and every allegation” in the lawsuit. The actor — who also checked in to a “long-term inpatient treatment” facility in December — previously told the New York Times in an email, “I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel.

“I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. 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,” he continued to the New York Times.

Twigs, who is currently dating 1975 frontman Matty Healy, spoke candidly to Elle about her experience.

“I honestly wish I could say that I found some strength and I saw this light. I wish I could say, ‘[It is] a testament to my strong character,’ or ‘It’s the way my mother raised me.’ It’s none of that. It’s pure luck that I’m not in that situation anymore,” the British singer told the publication.

Last week, Twigs also spoke to Gayle King on “CBS This Morning,” stating she is speaking out to help others.

“I was always told that, you know, I was special and to look after my heart and to look after the light inside my chest and when I was with Shia, that light got blown out,” she told King. “And I just didn’t think that that could happen.”

Reps for LaBeouf did not immediately return our request for comment.
