Margaret Qualley & FKA Twigs got into some kind of heated confrontation
In December 2020, FKA Twigs sued Shia LaBeouf for sexual battery, assault and emotional distress. Twigs spoke in-depth about how he love-bombed her, groomed her, then terrorized her and abused her for months. When Twigs sued Shia, he was dating Margaret Qualley. A few months later, Qualley and Shia were done. Qualley later reposted one of Twigs’ statements and Qualley spoke about how it was important to her to publicly show Twigs that she (Qualley) believed her. Well, Twigs’ lawsuit is still happening. Now Page Six says that Margaret Qualley and FKA Twigs ran into each other in LA and there was some kind of heated discussion which left both women shaken.
The fallout from Shia LaBeouf’s alleged abuse has, sadly, come between two women he has dated, Page Six has learned — and the bad blood led to a tense confrontation between them at the Bel Air hotel. Chic British singer FKA twigs is suing the “Transformers” actor for alleged sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress during their relationship, which lasted from the summer of 2018 to the spring of 2019. (LaBeouf has admitted being abusive to those around him, but denied her specific claims).
When she first made the shocking allegations in an interview with Elle magazine in September 2021, actress Margaret Qualley — who also briefly dated LaBeouf in early 2021 — posted the cover on social media with the caption “Thank you.” She later told Harper’s Bazaar that she posted the cover because, “It was important to me for her to know that I believe her — and it’s as simple as that.”
We’re told that after the piece came out, Twigs and Qualley exchanged messages, and Twigs hoped that Qualley would agree to be a witness in the case, which is set to go to trial in April 2023. But it seems Twigs became disappointed that — despite her public show of support — Qualley didn’t appear willing to throw herself into the suit as actively as the singer had hoped.
We’re told the two women — who hadn’t known each other before the Elle piece was published — happened to run into each other at the luxury hotel in Los Angeles. Sources say it’s unclear who approached whom, but the pair got into an intense verbal dispute over the matter in full view of the other hotel guests, and that Qualley’s fiancé, Bleachers singer Jack Antonoff, came to her defense and joined in with the argument.
Insiders say that Twigs, whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, and Qualley were both left “shaken” by the incident. Reps for Qualley declined to comment. Reps for Antonoff and Twigs didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment.

I’m not going to make any assumptions here about what was said between the two women. Twigs has every right to seek some kind of justice. Qualley has every right to stay out of it, if that’s really her position. We don’t know the extent of what Shia did to Qualley, if he did anything at all. We do know what he did to Twigs because she’s told us and I believe her. I’m not saying this as some kind of vague placeholder sentiment: I hope both women find some way to heal.
