Actress Margaret Qualley started dating the actor after the two starred in a controversial clip by singer Rainsford
Actress Margaret Qualley broke up with actor Shia LaBeouf after he was accused of abuse and domestic violence by three ex-girlfriends, singers FKA Twigs and Sia, and costume designer Karolyn Pho. The end was reported on the website of the American magazine People.
Now 26 and famous for her presence in the series ‘The Leftovers’ and in the drama ‘Once Upon a Time in … Hollywood’ (2019), Qualley is the daughter of actress Andie McDowell.
She and LaBeouf started dating after working together on the music video for the song ‘Love Me As You Hate Me’, by singer Rainsford, Margaret’s older sister. The production shows the two playing a couple in crisis, entitled to several nude scenes.
“They broke up on Saturday, they are at different stages in their lives,” the source close to the two celebrities who told the end of their relationship told People. The contact says that Qualley decided to finish before traveling to Canada to work on a new film.
People cite another source close to the actress who reports her discomfort at dating the actor amid growing accusations of abuse and domestic violence against him.
The initial charges against the actor came from singer FKA Twigs, with whom LaBeouf had a relationship in 2019. She says she was physically and psychologically abused by her ex and filed a lawsuit against him in the Los Angeles Superior Court.
She gave an interview to the New York Times newspaper narrating an incident during a car ride with the ex when he took off his seat belt and threatened to crash the vehicle unless she expressed her love for him.
The singer also said he woke her up in the middle of the night with his hands on her neck. She even accused him of assaulting her at a gas station once. Subsequently, costume designer Karolyn Pho, another former actor, made similar charges against him.
Soon after, it was the turn of Australian singer Sia, also ex-LaBeouf to accuse him of psychological abuse. She called him a “pathological liar” on Twitter and said he was sick.
LaBeouf responded to the allegations reported by the New York Times through an email in which he states that “many of the allegations are not true”, but he attributed his erratic behavior at times to alcoholism.
