Margaret and Shia were spotted locked in a passionate embrace just weeks ago at Los Angeles International Airport, sparking rumors their fling is a little more serious.  

Their loved-up display came nearly one week after FKA twigs sued her ex for sexual battery, assault and emotional distress after he ‘knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease.’ 

‘If Shia so much as puts a foot out of line, she’ll come down on him like a ton of bricks,’ the source said of Andie’s intent to protect her daughter.

FKA — whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett — detailed numerous incidents of abuse during their brief relationship that ended in 2019. 

The Transformers star was allegedly speeding in Los Angeles in February 2019 when the couple were returning from a trip to the desert when he removed his seat belt and threatened to crash the car unless she told him she loved him.

She also claims he forced her to sleep naked and that he kept a loaded gun by his bedside, and was allegedly woken up by him trying to choke her.

FKA said she never reported LaBeouf to police because she initially feared it would harm her career and then because she thought authorities wouldn’t take it seriously.

The pair dated for less than a year before ending things in May 2019 with sources saying at the time the separation was down to her work schedule.

LaBeouf’s attorney Shawn Holley told Variety he was ‘actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.’

In a statement to the New York Times when the allegations first surfaced, Shia acknowledged his actions.

‘I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations,’ he wrote in an email. ‘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.’
