Twigs claimed that LaBeouf failed to turn over all text messages in his possession that he sent to third parties about her, and her lawyers are seeking permission to get an expert to inspect his cell phone for additional messages.

The parties explained they are still fighting over evidence in the case. Their filing explained, “The parties have diligently conducted discovery, but certain discovery issues remain to be resolved.”

LaBeouf and Twigs said they have been unable to schedule depositions of the other. The singer, who currently lives overseas, said she’s been busy with entertainment projects.

In addition, the actor said he’s been busy filming a movie out of California, where the lawsuit was filed. LaBeouf has been busy filming Francis Ford Coppola’s $100 million epic Megalopolis in New York.

The duo said they need the additional year to allow them to schedule depositions, avoid conflict with their careers, and prepare for trial.

The judge signed off on the request.

The musician accused LaBeouf of being emotionally manipulative and even forced her to cut off her family. Twigs claimed he forced her to follow a list of rules which included not speaking to other men.

Last year, LaBeouf admitted to “failings with Twigs.”

On Jon Bernthal’s Real Ones podcast, he spoke about the allegations against him without mentioning Twigs by name.

"I hurt that woman," LaBeouf said. "And in the process of doing that, I hurt many other people, and many other people before that woman. I was a pleasure-seeking, selfish, self-centered, dishonest, inconsiderate, fearful human being ... When I think about what my life has become, and what it is now, like what my purpose is now ... I need to be useful. And when I look at this #MeToo environment, there's not a whole lot of dudes that are taking accountability."
