FKA twigs, who's real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett, is best known as a singer, songwriter, dancer and actor but the talented Brit is taking on a new role as she serves as a guest judge on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK.
The Cellophane singer was announced as one of the guest judges for the brand new series of the reality competition earlier this year, alongside other stars including Boy George, Mel B and Olly Alexander.
Twigs is set to appear on tonight's episode of the hit BBC Three show, telling fans: "What I love about drag race the most is it's an environment where being yourself and being your most authentic self wins every time."
The singer has been in the spotlight recently over a lawsuit she filed against her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf.
Shia isn't the only high-profile relationship she's had though. Here's who twigs has dated and what she said about her relationship with Shia.
Who has FKA twigs dated?
FKA twigs is known to have dated several famous faces over the years.
The singer began dating actor Robert Pattinson back in 2014 after his split from Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart.
Twigs and Pattinson hit it off quickly and had a whirlwind romance, getting engaged after just six months of dating.
But after being engaged for two years the couple called off the wedding and split in 2017, with a source telling People: “He is on a press tour and she is working on her new album. And I think it’s timing."
In 2018, twigs met Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf on the set of his film Honey Boy and the pair began dating soon after.
Just months into their relationship the singer moved in with LaBeouf in his LA home but the couple split after nearly a year of dating.
Twigs later accused LaBeouf of "relentless abuse" during their relationship and filed a lawsuit against him in 2020, however LaBeouf has since denied the accusations.
After splitting from LaBeouf, twigs briefly dated London based fashion stylist Reuben Esser in September 2019 and the pair were spotted enjoying a day out together in London.
However, it seems the romance was short-lived and towards the end of 2019 twigs struck up a new romance with 1975 singer Matt Healy.
The singers dated for over two years but called it quits on their relationship in June this year, reportedly due to their "work commitments".
What did FKA twigs say about Shia LaBeouf?
After splitting from Shia LaBeouf in 2019, twigs opened up about their relationship as she filed a lawsuit in December 2020, accusing the actor of sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress, which LaBeouf denies.
Twigs claims that LaBeouf subjected her to "relentless abuse" during their relationship and in papers filed as part of the lawsuit she detailed the alleged abuse, claiming that LaBeouf had intentionally infected her with an STD, had attempted to strangle her, once slammed her against a car, and even pulled a pistol on her in one incident while they were driving.
In a response to the suit,People reported in February 2021 that LaBeouf's team had said that he “denies, generally and specifically, each and every allegation contained in [Barnett]’s Complaint, denies that [Barnett] has sustained any injury or loss by reason of any act or omission on the part of [LaBeouf], and denies that [Barnett] is entitled to any relief or damages whatsoever.”
Explaining to the New York Times about why she filed the lawsuit, twigs said: "What I went through with Shia was the worst thing I've ever been through in the whole of my life,
"I don't think people would ever think that it would happen to me. But I think that's the thing. It can happen to anybody."
In May, Rolling Stone reported that a trial date had finally been set for the lawsuit with a court official confirming that the singer is set to argue her claims before a Los Angeles jury on April 17, 2023.
Who is FKA twigs dating now?
Twigs is currently believed to be single since splitting from Matt Healy back in June.
However, the singer did stir up rumours of a love triangle between herself, Dua Lipa and actor Aron Piper in July.
Twigs shocked fans when she posted a video passionately kissing Aron to her TikTok, just days after he had been spotted dancing with Dua Lipa in a Madrid nightclub.
But it seems that the steamy video might have just been a behind the scenes shot from her Killer music video released later in the month, which starred Aron as her love interest.
The singer was also reported to be looking for love again via the celebrity dating app Raya.
According to The Sun "twigs has kept her dating bio short and sweet but includes a series of stunning snaps of her dancing and wearing a bikini on a beach.
“She also has pictures of her beloved pooch Bam Bam, along with the tune of her pal Madonna’s 1998 song Little Star.”
