Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley were spotted making out in public, a new report from Page Six said this week. According to the outlet, the 34-year-old actor and Qualley were spotted kissing each other at the Los Angeles Airport over the weekend after Shia had driven there to pick her up.
The Daily Mail was the first to get their hands on photographs of Shia and Margaret together, prompting rumors of their romance. Reportedly, Shia and Margaret were kissing so passionately that Margaret had wrapped her legs around his.
The Daily Mail says it’s clear Shia and Margaret are smitten with each other because they couldn’t take their hands off each other. As most know, Margaret was formerly in a relationship with Pete Davidson.
The Nymphomaniac actor has had a rough time over the last two weeks. For instance, Shia was put on blast earlier in the month when his ex-girlfriend, FKA Twigs, accused him of abusing her during their romance. Twigs filed a lawsuit against him for assault and sexual battery months after Shia admitted to cleaning himself up.
Furthermore, Shia sparked controversy on social media last week when he was seen with a T-shirt with the words on it, “Love Me Like You Hate Me.” Many media outlets speculated that he wore the t-shirt as a way of indirectly responding to Twigs’ lawsuit against him.
Twigs also did an interview with The New York Times in which she blasted Shia and said he had abused her for years. Shia later released a statement in which he admitted to his wrongdoings in the past, saying how he had habitually mistreated the people closest to him.
LaBeouf said he hasn’t cured himself of “PTSD and alcoholism” either. The actor went on to say that he was going to do whatever it took in order to fix himself and right the wrongs of his past. As most know, Shia publicly struggled with alcoholism for years.
It all came to a head when he was arrested for public intoxication and disturbing the peace. The actor later thanked the police officer for arresting him during his Hollywood Film Awards speech.
