Recently in the news, FKA Twigs stated that she was left with PTSD after splitting from actor Shia LaBeouf in 2019. She is suing LaBeouf for physical, mental, and emotional abuse. Barnett told Louis Theroux's podcast she felt "scared and intimidated and controlled" by LaBeouf, and she "wasn't allowed to look men in the eye". LaBeouf has previously said many allegations against him are untrue but apologized for the hurt he had caused. They met on the set of the movie Honey Boy in 2018 and dated for nine months, splitting in May 2019 citing conflicting work schedules. However, it emerged in December 2020 that she was suing LeBeouf for sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress. She told Theroux there was "an intense honeymoon period at the beginning" before LaBeouf's behavior became abusive. She said she gradually became aware of him becoming more "jealous and controlling", and noticed the "little things you could do wrong that could take away from the happiness". She added: "For a long time anything that woke me up in the night, even if it was just my dog or a noise outside, or just needing to go to the bathroom, it could trigger a really intense panic attack. "I was left with PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] from that, which again is just something that I don't think we really talk about as a society just in terms of the healing when leaving, and how much work that has to be done to recover, to get back to the person that you were before." On the other hand; FKA twigs, London rapper Headie One, and producer Fred again.. have come together for the new song "Don't Judge Me" which is an expansion of the "Judge Me (Interlude)" from the rapper and producer’s 2020 GANG mixtape. The new song arrives with a video directed by Emmanuel Adjei (who also co-directed Beyoncé’s Black Is King). The visual finds twigs dancing in an empty room while Headie One walks along a street.
