Who is FKA Twigs dating? Robert Pattinson to Matt Healy, a look at her rumored boyfriends amid Shia LaBeouf scandal
Twigs has complained of LaBeouf abusing her sexually and mentally to an extent where she could not lock eyes with male waiters or men in general because of the actor's disliking
British singer FKA Twigs aka Tahliah Debrett Barnett has filed a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf alleging the American actor of relentless sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress. The R&B singer, 32, was with LaBeouf from 2018-2019, but recently, sources cited that the ‘Magdalene’ crooner was getting close with English Band, The 1975’s lead vocalist, Matt Healy. The duo was reported to be dating, and also made public appearances in February 2020. The pair was also seen getting cozy after the NME Awards in London, earlier this year.
Healey went on to share a picture with Twigs on Instagram with a caption, “thank you NME for the awards and the chaos,” after the award show. But both the singers performed separately at the award show.
Healey and Twigs reportedly made an appearance at RuPaul’s DragCon UK 2020 and according to a source, “Matt Healy and FKA Twigs were smiling and holding hands while having a great time walking around and watching the shows together”, E! News reported. The source further added, "It definitely appeared like the two are more than just friends. The two kept a pretty low profile, attending the event in support of Matt’s mom Denise Welch, who was the emcee for one of the events. Denise and FKA twigs were getting along great. They were very comfortable around each other."
Before LeBeouf, Twigs has had her fair share of serious relationships and a few rumored romance stories. She started dating Robert Pattinson in 2014 and the couple’s serious relationship soon became more. The duo got engaged in 2015 and stayed engaged for two years before splitting up in 2017.
After Pattinson, Twigs came across Shia LaBeouf on the set of the actor’s autobiographical movie ‘Honey Boy’. The couple dated for almost a year and the ‘genre-bending’ crooner shared LeBeouf to be overly affectionate at the beginning of their relationship, the New York Times reported. But later, the relationship turned extremely violent as Twigs complained of the actor abusing her sexually and mentally to an extent where she could not lock eyes with male waiters or men in general because of LeBeouf’s disliking. She said, "The whole time I was with him, I could have bought myself a business-flight plane ticket back to my four-story townhouse in Hackney," adding "He brought me so low, below myself, that the idea of leaving him and having to work myself back up just seemed impossible."
In an email to the New York Times, LeBeouf responded to the allegations stating: “I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behavior made them feel,” he said in an email to the New York Times. “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 I am sorry to those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say.”
Twigs has been an award-winning, acclaimed singer since her debut album ‘LP1’ released in 2014. ‘LP1’ peaked at number 16 on the UK Albums Chart and number 30 on the US Billboard 200 along with a nomination for the prestigious 2014 Mercury Prize. Her second studio album ‘Magdalene’ came four years later that has received much critical recognition for bending genres and having a unique concoction of electronic music, trip-hop, R&B, and the avant-garde.
