Shia LeBeouf Vehemently Denies That Olivia Wilde Fired Him From “Don’t Worry Darling” And He’s Converted To Catholicism
Don’t worry about all those repugnant things Shia LeBeouf has done or been accused of, or will do or be accused of, because all is forgiven. In an effort to rehabilitate his career, if not his personality, Shia’s been saved! USA Today reports that Shia has taken his latest role, an Italian priest in a biopic called Padre Pio, to heart and converted to Catholicism. Shia is so pious now that he’s become a crusader for truth. As such, after Olivia Wilde told Variety she fired him from Don’t Worry Darling, God led his hand straight to his saved messages folder and told his new convert to impale her with his mighty sword of truth. Shia reached out to Variety after Olivia’s interview was published and shared a number of text messages, videos, and emails that contradict Olivia’s claim. Shia says he quit. And then some. It’s a MESS. I’m afraid Olivia’s been served in public once again. Good thing those messages didn’t burn up when he was rolling with Satan. God only saves those who save themselves by saving those receipts!
Given all the drama surrounding Olivia Wilde’s upcoming psychological thriller/unintentional comedy Don’t Worry Darling starring Zach Braff’s former boo Florence Pugh and Olivia’s current boo Harry Styles, it’s easy to forget that things could be worse. When the movie went into production, Shia LeBeouf was starring opposite Flo “as suburban husband” who “may or may not be gaslighting his wife,” but was replaced by her first-choice, Harry, with no reason given other than a “scheduling conflict.” A bit later Olivia admitted that she shit canned Shia for violating her “no assholes policy” on set, but in her recent Variety interview, she claims that she fired him because her priority was to make sure Flo felt safe and supported given the “vulnerable situations” she’d be putting her in. Based on what we’ve heard, I’m not sure how safe and supported Flo felt when Olivia started fucking her co-star, but at least she never had to see Shia with his shirt off. That “creeper” clown chest tattoo alone is enough to send anybody to trauma therapy.
As low-rent and busted as he looks, Shia LaBeouf’s name was on everybody’s lips at the swanky Bel Air hotel recently when two of his ex-girlfriends, FKA Twigs and Margaret Qualley, got into a heated argument over what witnesses say was Margaret not wanting to act as a witness for Twigs in her lawsuit against Shia in which she is accusing him of physical, sexual and psychological domestic abuse, all of which he denies. That alone should have been enough to condemn the property because you can get bed bugs, or worse, just thinking his name, let alone arguing about him “in full view of the other hotel guests.” You want ants? Because that is how you get ants. You’d be better off summoning the Candyman. Page Six reports that Margaret’s fiancé Jack Antonoff even got pulled into the muck when he stepped in to defend her. Yep. Shia is that pernicious.
Last December, FKA Twigs filed a lawsuit against her former partner Shia LaBeouf, and in it, she gave us a little slice of what it was like for her to date Shia, which is to say: it was (allegedly) a terrible time for her. Twigs came through with numerous, and I mean numerous, examples of Shia’s alleged abuse, which included allegations of manipulation, controlling and jealous behavior, physical abuse, and violence. Shia, through his lawyers, denied every one of FKA Twigs’ claims in her lawsuit. Both sides are reportedly trying to keep the case from going to trial and are now negotiating a settlement.
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.
Denial, it’s not a river in Egypt, but it is what Shia LaBeouf’s current plan of action when it comes to all of FKA Twigs’ domestic violence allegations against him. Shia’s ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs filed a lawsuit against him in December, and in it, she accused him of many heinous, awful things like sexual battery, relentless controlling behavior, knowingly infecting her with an STD, and physical abuse. A former girlfriend named Karolyn Pho backed up FKA Twigs’ allegations with her own, many of which were very similar.
At the time of her filing, Shia responded by saying he was in no position to rationalize what alcohol does to him, that he has a history of hurting himself and others, and that he was sorry to see those he’s hurt. Then six seconds later, a more formal statement was released, and in it, Shia claimed, “many of these allegations are not true,” but that he owed the women (FKA Twigs and Karolyn) the chance to air their statements publicly, and that he owed them accountability for his actions. Well, now Shia’s denying 100% of the allegations listed in her lawsuit. And not only does he think she’s not entitled to any damages, but that she’s the one who should be forking over some cash to him.
