She says last Valentine’s Day, after returning from a trip where she woke up and he was choking her, he removed his seatbelt while speeding toward Los Angeles and threatened to crash unless she professed her love for him.

Karolyn Pho, another of LaBeouf’s exes, described similarly tumultuous experiences in the lawsuit. In an email to NYT, LaBeouf said “I have no excuses for my alcoholism or aggression, only rationalizations. 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.”
