Unfortunately for them, news of their budding romance came amid a sexual battery lawsuit filed against Shia by ex-girlfriend and former co-star FKA twigs and another anonymous female accuser. As of now the actor has not been charged with a crime, he however told The New York Times in December that while many of the allegations are untrue, he has “no excuses” for his addiction to alcohol or anger issues, and added that he is in fact “a sober member of a 12-step program” and is still going through therapy.
Shia’s lawyer has also spoken out in hopes to set the record straight for his client, speaking to E! News on Christmas Day, “Shia needs help, and he knows that. We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.”
