What did FKA Twigs say about Shia LaBeouf ‘shooting stray dogs’?
He allegedly told her it helped him “get into character” for a role in the 2020 movie The Tax Collector.
“I said to him, ‘That’s really bad. Why are you doing that?’” she told Elle.
“And he was like, ‘Because I take my art seriously. You’re not supporting me in my art. This is what I do. It’s different from singing. I don’t just get up on a stage and do a few moves. I’m in the character,’ Twigs claimed to Elle, amplifying claims from her lawsuit.

“He made me feel bad, like I didn’t understand what it was like to be an actor or to do this … Method [acting technique].”
She alleged that the actor had a gun in his bedroom and that she was afraid to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night in case LaBeouf believed she was an intruder.
“I thought to myself, ‘If he shoots me, and then if there is some sort of investigation, they will put the pieces together,'” she claimed to Elle.
“‘I need to leave little clues.’ ”

What else did Twigs say about his alleged behavior?
FKA Twigs details a series of disturbing allegations in her interview with Gayle King that will air on CBS This Morning on February 18.
“He would often just start having an argument with me in the middle of the night, start accusing me of doing all sorts of things, planning to leave him in my head,” she claimed to King.
“He’d wake me up, tell me I was disgusting, that I was vile.”
Twigs added: “But this is the thing – but I would really doubt myself.

“You know, especially when I’d, like, wake up and he’d be like, ‘You were lying there with your eyes open, planning to leave me.’ And I’d be like, ‘I literally was asleep.'”
She alleged to King that LaBeouf would “only want me to sleep naked because he said if I didn’t then I was keeping myself from him.”
The singer claimed to Elle that “it’s a miracle I came out alive.”
She claimed that “luck” was the reason why she survived their relationship.
“I honestly wish I could say that I found some strength and I saw this light,” she told Elle.
LaBeouf’s lawyers said the actor “denies, generally and specifically, each and every allegation” in her lawsuit, according to CBS.
