WGHP — The actor who plays the Flash in the DC Extended Universe is facing even more legal trouble now accused of problematic behavior as the courts battle to enforce an order of protection issued on behalf of concerned parents.
Ezra Miller 29 who is nonbinary and uses they/they pronouns is accused of a litany of abuse by the parents of Tokata Iron Eyes an 18yearold from North Dakota. According to the LA Times a protective order was issued against Miller filed by indigenous activist Chase Iron Eyes and his wife Sara Jumping Eagle. They allege that Miller psychologically and emotionally abused the 18yearold who met the actor six years ago. Under tribal law despite being 18 years old they are still Tokatas legal guardians.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court granted the protective order but law enforcement has been unable to locate Miller or Iron Eyes to serve the order. The familys petition indicates that they attempted to treat the actor at least four times both in Vermont and California. Chase Iron Eyes says the couple move around a lot and make it difficult to find them to deliver the order which dictates that Miller cannot communicate with the family and must stay away from his North Dakota home for 30 days.
The court date is set for July 12.
Miller is accused of assaulting Jumping Eagle when they went to California to see Tokata earlier this year. She filed a police report with Santa Monica police after the incident. Tokata and Miller allegedly met in 2016 when Tokata was 12 and Miller was 23. The familys petition accuses Miller of corrupting a minor. At first they believed the relationship was innocent established under the guise of Millers activism during the NoDaPL Dakota Access Pipeline protests.
Now they accuse the actor of controlling psychologically manipulative and cult behavior. They also allege that Miller gave Tokata drugs and tried to sleep in the same bed as Tokata when the teenager was just 14 and took Tokata to London for the Fantastic Beasts premiere. Tokatas parents also allege sexually predatory behavior and claim that Miller is using multiple social media accounts to threaten and mislead victims and the truth from coming out. Tokata took to Instagram and issued a statement to acknowledge the tragedy that is the general publics narrative and the assumptions made on my behalf by my family and friends regarding my stability and other things.
Tokatas mother says Tokota hasnt had a phone in some time and believes Miller prepared the statement on his behalf. The Flash starring Miller will be released on June 23 2023. Miller also recently appeared in the movie Fantastic Beasts. This is just the latest legal issue for Miller who has been arrested and charged with assault. several times in Hawaii. According to the LA Times Tokata Iron Eyes was present during at least one of these altercations seen in footage obtained by TMZ.
