Shia LaBeouf has come clean about the fact that he has cheated on every single woman he has ever dated.
The actor was accused of sexual battery in a lawsuit that was filed in 2020 by his ex-girlfriend, the musician FKA Twigs, who’s real name is Tahliah Barnett
The trial date for the civil lawsuit has been scheduled for April 17, 2023; nevertheless, in a new interview, the 36-year-old came clean about several wrongdoings. LaBeouf has rejected the charges.
Shia LaBeouf admitted on Jon Bernthal’s Real Ones podcast that he has “cheated” on every single woman he has ever been with and revealed that he has never told his sexual partners about “getting cold sores.”
He said that he has a “long list of people that I need to make amends to.”
Without explicitly naming his ex, LaBeouf said: “I hurt that woman. And in the process of doing that, I hurt many other people, and many other people before that woman.”
“I was a pleasure-seeking, selfish, self-centred, dishonest, inconsiderate, fearful human being.”
“I fucked up bad. Like crash and burn type shit. I hurt a lot of people, and I’m fully aware of that. And I’m going to owe for the rest of my life.”
When asked about his history and plans for the future, the actor indicated that he wants to do something that is “useful.”
“When I think about what my life has become, and what it is now, like what my purpose is now… I need to be useful,” he said.
“And when I look at this #MeToo environment, there’s not a whole lot of dudes that are taking accountability.”
LaBeouf stated that he wanted to come to Twitter and defend himself when the claims were first brought to light; however, now that the dust has cleared, he said that his accuser—who he did not refer to by name—is a “saint” who “saved my fucking life.”
“Had she not intervened in my life and not created the avenue for me to experience ego death, I’d either have a really mediocre existence or I’d be dead in full,” he said.
In point of fact, Shia LaBeouf has acknowledged that once the allegations became public, he considered ending his life by killing himself before he turned to God.
During a conversation with the Bishop Robert Barron of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, he revealed he once “had a gun on the table.”
“I was outta here. I didn’t want to be alive anymore when all this happened.”
“Shame like I had never experienced before—the kind of shame that you forget how to breathe. You don’t know where to go. You can’t go outside and get like, a taco. But I was also in this deep desire to hold on.”
