SHIA LaBeouf has been replaced by Kate Hudson in Sia's latest movie after the star's ex FKA Twigs accused him of abuse and giving her an STD.
Earlier this week, the Chandelier singer claimed the actor "conned" her into an adulterous relationship.
In an interview with Australia's Studio 10 – via Daily Mail – Sia, 44, explained the cast change for her film Music: "I was going to do a narrative film, and in fact, Shia LaBeouf was cast to play Kate’s character.
"I asked for a meeting with her, and she said she was born to do it. She could sing, she could dance, she could do it all.”
Previously, the popular entertainer called out Shia, 34 and said: "I too have been hurt emotionally by Shia, a pathological liar, who conned me into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single.
"I believe he's very sick and have compassion for him AND his victims. Just know, if you love yourself- stay safe, stay away."
The duo worked together in 2015 as Shia appeared in Sia's music video for Elastic Heart alongside then 13-year-old dancer Maddie Zieger.
Sia also shared a second post that read: "I love you @FKAtwigs This is very courageous and I'm very proud of you."
All this comes after British singer Twigs – real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett – accused the Even Stevens alum in a lawsuit of choking her, giving her an STD, and inflicting emotional abuse on her.
In court papers obtained by The Sun, Twigs, 32, claimed the Hollywood star “knowingly transmitted a serious illness to Tahliah, without ever informing her beforehand that he suffered from this dreadful malady.”
She claimed she began to experience “unusual and painful physical symptoms” around March 2019.
When she confronted Shia about her symptoms, he “admitted that he suffered from a sexually transmitted disease which had been diagnosed years earlier.”
The singer claimed in court papers: "LaBeouf admitted that he had never told Tahliah about his condition before, even though they had been sexually intimate for many months.
“Further, LaBeouf admitted that he had experienced a flareup of his disease’s symptoms in December 2019, but worked to hide his outward symptoms from Tahliah by applying makeup.
“Despite experiencing a flareup of his symptoms, LaBeouf continued to engage in sexual relations with Tahliah, further exposing her to his disease.”
The musician also claimed that his attorney “cruelly dismissed the sexually transmitted disease LaBeouf had infected Tahliah with as ‘not that bad.’”
The Sun also exclusively revealed from court docs that Twigs claimed her ex-boyfriend “demanded Tahliah join him while he watched documentaries about murdered women before bed.”
While living in his Los Angeles home, she claimed she was in “constant fear” due to the “threatening presence of loaded firearms throughout LaBeouf’s home.”
Twigs also alleged that Shia “refused to allow Tahliah to sleep with any clothing on.”
Shia was previously in a relationship with actress and model Mia Goth, but they parted ways in 2018 after together for two years.
