Following the string of alleged crimes and arrests, new against Ezra Miller have come to light in a new Insider exposé. The extensive piece, published Thursday, features two separate accounts from parents who allege that Miller groomed their children, with both having filed protective orders against the actor. (vanity fair has reached out to a lawyer for Miller for comment.)
According to Insider, Sara Jumping Eagle and Chase Iron Eyes allege in court documents that their 18-year-old tokata was verbally and physically abused by Miller after being groomed by the actor for six years. Tokata’s parents say that Miller first met Tokata in 2016 when she was just 12 years old, when all four were involved in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Miller kept tabs on Tokata over the years, the parents allege, later flying the then 14-year-old to the London premiere of their movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and encouraging her musical aspirations.
But in June, Tokata’s parents would obtain a temporary protective order requesting that Miller be kept away from their child. In tribal court documents, the parents, who are members of the Lakota Nation in North Dakota and South Dakota, state that the actor had been abusive toward their daughter over the years; they allege that Miller attempted to sleep in the same bed as Tokata when she was 14. Insider also spoke with someone who alleged they saw Miller having sex with Takota in December 2021. Tokata denied both claims to Insider, calling the latter “so very false .”
In January, Miller and guests at the actor’s Vermont compound told Tokata’s parents that their daughter was incapacitated after taking LSD. When Jumping Eagle and Iron Eyes saw Tokata, they told Insider, she was “incoherent,” without a phone or ID, and had bruises on her arms and left cheek. After a few weeks with her parents, Tokata would reconnect with Miller, leading to her parents’ legal action. On June 7, the tribal court said it could not locate or serve Miller and demanded they appear in-person on July 12, the day the judge later closed the case to the public, according to Insider.
Tokata told the outlet that her parents’ allegations against Miller were “a disgusting and irresponsible smear campaign” against Miller and that the actor “in multiple cases has done the right thing and stood in protection of others.”
Days after Tokata’s LSD experience, in February, Miller allegedly met a mother (who remains anonymous in the piece) and her then 1-year-old child—who, like Miller, mutually identifies as nonbinary—through friends. The mother told Insider that Miller “showed an inappropriate interest” in her child —commending their maturity, asking for their Instagram handle, and offering to pay for them to attend design school. In another encounter, the actor allegedly offered to buy the child horses. On June 15, the now 12-year-old’s mother was granted a temporary harassment-protection order against Miller.
The piece also delves into Miller’s whereabouts in 2020, where they became somewhat notorious in Iceland for their “putrid stench” and walking “the frigid streets of Reykjavík barefoot, revealing long, pointy toenails and what looked like an infected gash on one foot,” according to three of Insider’s sources. Miller reportedly convened a group of people at an Airbnb they rented in Reykjavík’s suburb of Kópavogur, with one visitor comparing the set-up to a “commune.” She added, “I felt like everyone was hypnotized.” According to Insider, “Between Miller’s makeshift commune, their monologues on spirituality, and their emotional outbursts, rumors began to circulate in Reykjavík that the star was running a cult.”
A young woman who had a brief sexual relationship with Miller in Iceland when she was 18 told the outlet, “Nobody ever was kind of allowed to disagree with them. Their reality painted everybody else’s reality. There was no room for anybody else’s opinion or feelings.”
The reports about Miller’s alleged misdeeds mount, the pressure is on Warner Bros., which reportedly still plans to release the actor’s superhero vehicle The Flash in June 2023. According to the legal documents filed by Tokata’s parents seen by Insider, in April, family and friends of Miller and Tokata, as well as Warner Bros., discussed staging an intervention. However, Warner Bros. and Miller’s mother, Martha, reportedly canceled it. (Warner Bros. did not respond to Insider’s requests for comment.)
The mother of the 12-year-old said Miller still holds a position of power that’s dangerous for young people to be around. “They see them as someone who is successful, who is queer, who is in the community,” she told the outlet. “My child is thinking that this person’s a superhero—they’re really enamored.”
