Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley have reportedly broken up amid accusations that he abused ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs.
“They broke up on Saturday. They’re just in different places in their lives,” a source told People. The source added that Qualley’s main focus is her acting career.
And another source told the website that she was aware of the “backlash” she would receive for dating LaBeouf amid his legal battle against Twigs, who accused him of sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress.
As Page Six previously reported, LaBeouf, 34, and Qualley, 26, were spotted making out at LAX airport in December 2020.
And that same week they were photographed going for a run together in LA.
The pair were last photographed together on Monday in Studio City, Calif., as well as on a hike in LA the day after Christmas, People reported.
LaBeouf made headlines earlier in December after Twigs sued the actor for their allegedly abusive relationship.
In an email to the New York Times — who broke the story — LaBeouf wrote, “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.”
Days later Sia claimed she was “conned” into an affair with “pathological liar” LaBeouf — and warned women to “stay away” from the “very sick” Hollywood star.
LaBeouf’s lawyer told Variety on Dec. 24 that he is seeking “long-term inpatient treatment.”
Netflix then scrubbed the actor from their “For your awards consideration” page.
Reps for LaBeouf and Qualley did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
