The past year has been a strange one for celebrity relationships, as much has been made out of the public eye amid the pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. Qualley, however, kept busy appearing in the Rainsford music video for her song “Love Me Like You Hate Me” with LaBeouf.

About two months after their first short film (featuring “special thanks” to Olivia Wilde, who shot LaBeouf from her film Don’t worry Darling), LaBeouf and Qualley were raised together in Los Angeles. This came right after LaBeouf, FKA Twigs, sued him for sexual battery, assault, and emotional distress harassment.
