Monk-y business? Bizarre pics of Shia LaBeouf stepping out with girlfriend
Actor Shia LaBeouf was spotted in a monk robe after shying away from the spotlight following abuse claims from ex-girlfriend FKA twigs.
American actor Shia LaBeouf has been out of the spotlight after being accused of being physically abusive towards his ex-girlfriend British musician FKA twigs.
LaBeouf is known for going to extremes to prepare for his movie roles, scarring his face and having a tooth pulled to get in character. And it seems he most certainly got into character for his upcoming role in indie filmmaker Abel Ferrara’s new film about Italian Saint Padre Pio as the actor stepped out in Los Angeles dressed up as a Capuchin monk.

In 2019, it was reported that LaBeouf and the British musician were in a car driving towards Los Angeles when the actor threatened to crash the car until twigs professed her love for him.
FKA twigs also claimed that the Hollywood actor transmitted a sexually transmitted disease to her and accused him of being physically abusive towards him.
The musician filed a lawsuit against LaBeouf on 11 December 2020 which he responded to saying: “I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel.”
“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.”
