Following the lawsuit filed by singer FKA Twigs for sexual abuse and physical violence against her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf , it was confirmed that the actor was recently fired from the filming of the film “Don’t Worry, Darling”, directed by Olivia Wilde , due to his “misbehavior”.
Wilde, whose behind-the-scenes debut “Nerd Night” was a huge success, has “a zero-tolerance policy for jerks,” as Variety quoted a close collaborator who spoke off the record. .
The magazine confirms that, although in September it was said that LaBeouf “had to leave the project due to a scheduling conflict” – he was replaced by Harry Styles – his dismissal, which occurred shortly before filming began, was due to “LaBeouf showing disruptive behavior and his work style clashed with that of the cast and crew, including Wilde, who ended up firing him. “
In addition to the recent allegations against him for alleged physical and verbal assaults on FKA Twigs, LaBeouf has a long history of disruptive behavior and addiction problems. He has been arrested several times and has been accused more than once of committing violent acts and disturbing public order.
The British singer, dancer and performer reported him to the US Justice in early December for alleged sexual assault, physical violence and repeated psychological abuse, stating that the actor abused her “relentlessly” during the period in which they were together. The couple dated for close to a year before their breakup in May 2019.
The artist’s lawsuit details, among other allegations, that on one occasion LaBeouf was driving at full speed when he removed his belt and threatened to crash the vehicle if FKA did not profess his love for him.
Karolyn Pho , a stylist and who also maintained a bond with the actor, described similarly disturbing experiences to the same medium. On one occasion, she noted, Shia pinned her drunk against a bed and butted her hard enough to make her bleed.
LaBeouf responded to the accusations of both by sending an e-mail to The New York Times , in which he acknowledged part of his misconduct while partially hiding himself in his addiction problems.
The next project in the actor’s portfolio, “Fragments of a woman,” in which he stars alongside Vanessa Kirby (who won the Volpi Cup for best actress at the Venice Film Festival this year), will premiere on Netflix on January 7.
