(LOS ANGELES) — Singer FKA twigs, who is suing ex boyfriend Shia LaBeouf for abuse, received additional support from his ex girlfriend, Margaret Qualley.
Qualley broke up with the disgraced actor in January shortly after twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, went public with her accusations against the Honey Boy actor.
Barnett, in a recent interview with Elle magazine, revealed more about the alleged abuse she suffered while dating LaBeouf and explained why she chose to speak out now.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, Qualley broke her silence on the matter by sharing an image of Elle‘s March cover, which features Barnett front and center.
Although the British actress didn’t speak about her relationship with LaBeouf, she extended support to the singer by captioning with “Thank you.”
Qualley’s mother, Andie MacDowell shared her thoughts in the comment section, writing, “Precious girls. Beloved.”
Qualley, 26, was first romantically linked with LaBeouf in October after the two starred in the extremely steamy “Love Me Like You Hate Me” music video.
She was photographed kissing LaBeouf in the days after Barnett went public with her accusations in December and, the following month, quietly separated from him. This is the first time she’s spoken about her previous relationship and regarding the abuse allegations.
Barnett, 33, who levied a series of serious accusations against the Transformers star, said in her recent interview with Elle, “It’s a miracle I came out alive.”
