Shia LaBeouf made jaws drop over the weekend when he claimed he was raped during his #IAmSorry art exhibit in February.

During an interview with Dazed magazine, the Fury star opened up about the incident, saying that although he was able to connect emotionally with some of the people who visited him during the exhibit, things took a turn when one particular woman arrived.

"One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me...there were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick," he told the mag. "It was no good, not just for me but her man as well."

Following those claims, two of the collaborators on the project – artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner – both spoke out about what went down, with Nastja first tweeting this to her followers.:

Luke also chimed in, after Piers Morgan slammed Shia's claims and asked the artist why he didn't stop the incident if it was true.

Aside from that incident, Shia said he had never "experienced love, empathy, and humanity," like he did during the exhibit. "Almost everyone who came in had preconceived notions of what they were going to experience, and as soon as Nastja Rönkkö brought them through the curtain, everything changed," he continued. "I went from being a celebrity or object to a fellow human."
