Shia LaBeouf is pictured running in Pasadena, California on Monday as accusations of abuse continued to be made against the actor.
The 34-year-old was seen on his daily morning jog, three days after ex-girlfriend FKA twigs filed a lawsuit against him for ‘relentless abuse’, including sexual assault and battery during their relationship in 2019.
LaBeouf addressed the accusations, which were made public on Friday by The New York Times.

The Fury star refused to speak to onlookers and wore earphones as he jogged in a waterproof jacket which he wore over a green hoodie and track-pants.
LeBeouf’s latest outing came as Twigs, 32, showed her support for singer Sia after she also came forward with allegations against the Honey Boy actor.
Twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, is suing the Transformers actor for sexual battery, assault, and infliction of emotional distress during the course of their brief relationship, claiming she was subjected to ‘relentless’ abuse from him.
After Twigs spoke publicly about her lawsuit, fellow singer Sia took to social media to allege Shia, 34, had ‘conned’ her ‘into an adulterous relationship claiming to be single’, and now, Twigs has offered a message of support to the Chandelier hitmaker.
Twigs wrote on Twitter on Sunday: ‘I’m sorry @Sia this reinforces why I had to publicly share my experience. we need to support each other <3. (sic)’

And in a separate message, she added: ‘love you back @Sia you’re an inspiration and thank you everyone for your love and solidarity <3. (sic)’
In Sia’s original claims, the 44-year-old singer blasted Shia – who appeared in the music video for her 2015 track Elastic Heart – as a ‘pathological liar’, and alleged he lied to her about being single.
She 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.’

Meanwhile, after FKA Twigs’ lawsuit was filed last week, Shia made a public statement admitting he has been ‘abusive to myself and everyone around me for years’.
He said: ‘I’m not in any position to tell anyone how my behaviour made them feel. I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalisations.
‘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 am sorry to those I hurt. There is nothing else I can really say.’
However, the Hollywood star insisted that ‘many of these allegations are not true’, but also said he owed the women ‘the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those things I have done’.

‘I owe these women the opportunity to air their statements publicly and accept accountability for those thing I have done. As someone in recovery, I have to face almost daily reminders of things I did say and do when I was drinking.

‘It has always been easy for me to accept responsibility when my behavior reflects poorly on myself, but it’s much harder to accept the knowledge that I may have caused great pain to others.
‘I can’t rewrite history. I can only accept it and work to be better in the future. I write this as a sober member of a twelve-step program and in therapy for my many failings.
‘I am not cured of my PTSD and alcoholism, but I am committed to doing what I need to do to recover, and I will forever be sorry to the people that I may have harmed along the way.’
