Matty Healy showed some love for FKA Twigs, whom he affectionately referred to as “loml” (love of my life) in his latest post on Instagram, after she came forward with allegations of abuse against former boyfriend Shia LaBeouf this week.
The 1975 frontman captioned an adorable snapshot of her with descriptors like “legend,” “icon” and “loml,” surrounded by emojis, on Sunday (Dec. 13).
FKA Twigs (Tahliah Barnett) filed a lawsuit against the actor on Dec. 11, claiming she suffered “relentless abuse” during their relationship. The singer-songwriter said that while involved with LaBeouf, she was the victim of sexual battery, assault and emotional distress.
“I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single,” Sia tweeted. “I believe he’s very sick and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you love yourself- stay safe, stay away.
“Also I love you @fkatwigs,” she said. “This is very courageous and I’m very proud of you.”
In a statement to the New York Times regarding Barnett’s allegations against him, LaBeouf said, “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.”
LaBeouf, who said he is in therapy and is a “sober member of a 12-step program,” added that “many of these allegations are not true,” but that he owed the women “the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done.”
