Nine months after the #IAMSORRY event, American actor Shia LaBeouf revealed that he was raped by a woman on Valentine's Day in the Los Angeles art gallery.

Earlier this year, the "Fury" star had organized a five-day-long performance art event called #IAMSORRY, wherein the public were allowed to visit the actor one-by-one in a small room of the art gallery.

Recently, through a series of emails to a journalist from Dazed, LaBeouf claimed that a woman tried to rape him on the third day of the event. "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," he said.

"There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with disheveled hair and smudged lipstick. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine's Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event. It was painful," LaBeouf added.

Though the former Disney star did not explain whether he tried to stop the alleged attack or not, he did not hesitate to share some good memories of the #IAMSORRY event.

"People I've never met before came in and loved on me and with me. Some would hold my hand and cry with me, some would tell me to 'figure it out' or to 'be a man'. I've never experienced love like that; empathy, humanity," he said.

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old actor also talked about his latest movie, "Fury is the most meat I've ever had to chew on. The day after I got the job, I joined the US National Guard. I was baptised – accepted Christ in my heart – tattooed my surrender and became 
a chaplain's assistant to Captain Yates for the 41st Infantry".

"I spent a month living on a forward operating base. Then I linked up with my cast and went to Fort Irwin. I pulled my tooth out, knifed my face up and spent days watching horses die. 
I didn't bathe for four months. I met some tankers who told me that was just the way it was out there – some guys had the same pair of socks on for 
three years," he added.
