LaBeouf “denies, generally and specifically, each and every allegation contained in [Barnett]’s Complaint, denies that [Barnett] has sustained any injury or loss by reason of any act or omission on the part of [LaBeouf], and denies that [Barnett] is entitled to any relief or damages whatsoever,” his response to FKA Twigs’ lawsuit stated, according to People magazine.

LaBeouf also requested the sexual battery claims be dismissed because “none of the acts alleged were based on sex and/or the conduct was not sexual,” the outlet reported.
The “Holes” actor reportedly has stepped away from acting and has entered an inpatient treatment program, according to his attorney.
“Shia needs help and he knows that,” the actor’s attorney told Variety back in December. “We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.”
