Shortly after we learned that FKA Twigs sued Shia LaBeouf for the emotional and physical abuse he inflicted on her while they were dating, we learned that Shia has a new girlfriend. He met Margaret Qualley over the summer, and they’re so “hot and heavy” that he does airport pickups for her, and they’ve been photographed together all over LA for weeks. It’s gross and dangerous. We’ve all been young and we’ve all been manipulated by a toxic guy, but I’d like to think that as soon as a dude’s ex filed a lawsuit calling him an abuser, I would be out. Still, we don’t know what Shia has told her and… yeah, it’s just a bad situation and I hope she finds a way out. In the meantime, we can only hope that Margaret’s parents are staying involved. Us Weekly says they are.
Margaret Qualley is all in on her budding romance with Shia LaBeouf, but her loved ones are concerned after the actor’s ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs accused him of abuse.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star’s mother, Andie MacDowell, is “keeping an extremely close watch on the situation,” a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “If Shia so much as puts a foot out of line, she’ll come down on him like a ton of bricks.”
Qualley, 24, and LaBeouf, 34, were spotted making out at LAX airport on December 19, less than a week after Twigs, 32, sued him for alleged sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress. The Disturbia star, who is seeking long-term inpatient treatment, said in a statement that “many” of the allegations against him “are not true” but accepted “accountability” for his past mistakes.
Although LaBeouf has a well-documented history of personal and legal issues, Qualley is “totally smitten” by him, the source tells Us, adding, “She trusts he’s not the bad guy people say he is.”

Us Weekly has Margaret’s age as 24, but her Wiki has her as 26 years old, born in October 1994. It was news at the time, because Andie MacDowell was one of the first big-name celebrities to sort of run away to the country and raise her children out of the Hollywood system. What I’m saying is that Margaret is 26, she’s been an adult for a while, Andie doesn’t really have a say in her daughter’s life, but I still hope Andie is involving herself because Margaret is absolutely going to need an exit plan.
