There's an old Biblical phrase that goes, "Hell has no fury like a woman scorned."

Singer FKA Twigs is suing ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf to court over allegations of assault, sexual battery, and infliction of emotional distress.

The allegations come months after the couple split up and he reunited with actress wife Mia Goth earlier this year.

The British musician, real name Tahliah Barnett, filed suit in Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 11, accusing LaBeouf of physically abusing her during their romance, which began in late 2018 and ended in 2019.

In the lawsuit, obtained by the New York Times, Twigs describes one attack occurring on Valentine's Day in 2019, when the Transformers star was driving recklessly, and reportedly threatened to purposefully crash the car with her in it.

Twigs said she escaped the vehicle when LaBeouf pulled over at a gas station. She said he pursued her, slammed her against the car, and screamed in her face before forcing her to get back in.

In a separate incident, the actor allegedly woke up in the middle of the night and choked the singer. She also accused him of paranoia and sleeping with guns.

Twigs is citing sexual battery in her legal action amid allegations suggesting LaBeouf knowingly gave her a sexually-transmitted disease, which Twigs believes he spread to at least one other women he had been intimate with.

She insists the lawsuit isn't about money: "I'd like to be able to raise awareness on the tactics that abusers use to control you and take away your agency," she told the New York Times.
