Shia LaBeouf is currently in a treatment center to deal with aaaaaaaaall that is Shia LaBeouf, while his lawyers are doing the heaviest of lifting by claiming that each and every one of the abuse allegations made by his ex-girlfriend, FKA Twigs, is a lie. Shia might be wondering what his career could look like after he leaves treatment, which coincidentally will probably depend very heavily on who has read FKA Twigs’ allegations. And I’m sure he’s counting on some of the friends he made pre-treatment to still answer the phone when he gets out. Like maybe Margaret Qualley will be available for a sequel to their naked performance art music video thing. But if Margaret’s recent Instagram activity is any indication of her future availability, then Shia might want to skip over her number when starts making those cold calls.
26-year-old Margaret and 34-year-old Shia dated for a bit last year and were “caught” kissing at LAX in December. A few weeks after going mouth-public at LAX, Margaret and Shia reportedly broke up, because they were in different places. It turns out Margaret’s location is: as far away from looking like she supports that alleged abuser as possible. Last week, FKA Twigs spoke with Gayle King for CBS This Morning about her allegations against Shia and her subsequent lawsuit, an interview which coincided with FKA Twigs’ ELLE magazine cover story detailing her abuse. That story was published last Wednesday. Three days later, Margaret hopped on Instagram and posted a picture of FKA Twigs’ ELLE cover, with the caption, “Thank you.”
All of FKA Twigs’ claims have been about Shia’s alleged abusive, controlling nature, how he allegedly isolated and alienated her from professional contacts, friends, and family, and how he would allegedly terrorize her with accusations that she was secretly plotting to leave him. Essentially, the world’s biggest, reddest flag for any woman who might look at Shia and think potential boyfriend material. Of course, Margaret didn’t come right out and say, “Thank you for warning me against taking it further than artsy music videos and parking lot kisses,” so it could just be Margaret’s way of thanking FKA Twigs for being so open. Plus, there are two posts about the video for Rainsford’s “Love Me Like You Hate Me,” the music video she co-starred with Shia in. So she’s not wiping Shia completely clean out of her life. To be fair, I don’t know if that’s entirely possible. Even the Lysol commercial shows a couple of gross cartoon bacteria still crawling on the counter after you spritz and swipe.
