Shia and Margaret recently starred in Rainsford’s “Love Me Like You Hate Me” music video. Rainsford is, of course, Margaret’s sister Rainey Qualley. The girls’ parents are Andie MacDowell and Paul Qualley. Margaret, who starred in “The Leftovers” and “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” previously dated Pete Davidson.
Weeks before their split, Andie “keeping an extremely close watch on the situation,” according to Us Weekly.
“If Shia so much as puts a foot out of line, she’ll come down on him like a ton of bricks,” an insider shared.
The source claimed that Margaret was “totally smitten” with Shia, adding, “She trusts he’s not the bad guy people say he is.”
Shia’s ex FKA twigs recently accused him of abuse, sexual battery, and more, in a lawsuit.
The New York Times reported twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles to warn others that “Shia LaBeouf hurts women.”
LaBeouf responded to the paper, stating in an email that “many of these allegations are not true,” but acknowledging that he owes the women “the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done.”
The actor explained he is now in a 12-step program and undergoing therapy. “I am not cured of my PTSD and alcoholism," he wrote, “but I am committed to doing what I need to do to recover, and I will forever be sorry to the people that I may have harmed along the way.”
According to The Times, the lawsuit describes a tumultuous and scary trip FKA and Shia took to the desert in February 2019. The singer also claims Shia knowingly gave her an STD, and accuses him of sexual battery, assault, and emotional distress.
FKA claimed Shia had a quota for how many times he wanted to be kissed and touched each day. She added that he convinced her to stay in L.A. rather than move back to London, where her support system is. Twigs saw it as a means of isolating her.
Shia told The Times in another email, “I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. 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. There is nothing else I can really say.”
