Shia LaBeouf credits FKA Twigs with ‘saving my life’ and reveals he’s been 627 days sober

Shia LaBeouf apparently credited his ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs with “saving my life” after publicly accusing him of “relentless abuse”.

The “Cellophane” singer, 34, sued LaBeouf, 36, for sexual assault, assault and infliction of emotional distress in December 2020.

Twigs accused the actor of choking her, threatening to run over the car they were both in, and knowingly giving her a sexually transmitted disease. But LaBeouf denied his allegations.

He said she was “not entitled to any relief or damages”.

With their trial date set for April 17 next year, LaBeouf admitted he experienced a major ‘perspective shift’ which made him see that his accuser had in fact saved his life.

In an interview published Thursday with Bishop Robert Barron of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, LaBeouf opened up about his new mindset.

“When I think about what happened in my life in this way, my old self was so upset, so resentful of the woman who accused me of all this,” he said, making referring to FKA Twigs.

“I wanted to go on Twitter and write all these things. I wanted to justify this and explain all this. Now I really see that the woman saved my life. She is, for me, a saint in my life. She saved my life. The change in perspective seems miraculous.

In a desperate attempt to become a better version of himself, the actor admitted he had quit drinking for good and had now been sober for over a year and a half.

Addressing his personal “journey” in a recent letter to Olivia Wilde amid their bitter feud, LaBeouf opened up about his sobriety in the letter, published by Variety on Friday.

“I’ve embarked on a journey that feels redemptive and right (dirty word but appropriate),” he told Wilde before slamming claims that she fired him from the film.

“I write to you now with 627 days of sobriety and a moral compass that never existed before my great humiliation which was the last year and a quarter of my life.”
