The British artist had wanted to explain the reasons for his approach during an interview with the New York Times, detailing some of the abuse suffered."What I lived with Shia is what I lived of worst in all my life", she concluded, after revealing that the actor had notably threatened to kill them in the car if she did not give her proof of her love for him.

In a response to the publication, the star recalled her long struggle with addictions and her record of abusive relationships while apologizing for her behavior. Nonetheless, he added that "many of these accusations are false".
