Ezra Miller, star of Justice League and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, has been accused of using violence to ‘hold sway’ over 18-year-old activist Tokata Iron Eyes, according to her parents.

In a series of legal documents that were obtained by TMZ, Iron Eye’s guardians allege, Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata.” They have now asked a court to issue a protective order against the actor.

Iron Eyes was just 12 years old when Miller—who was 23 at the time—first met them on a visit to Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota. In 2017, the activist’s parents claim that the actor flew their underage child out to London to visit the set of Fantastic Beasts. They were 14 and  25 at the time. Miller also allegedly supplied Iron Eyes’ with drink and drugs during the course of their friendship.

In January 2022, Iron Eyes’ parents travelled to Vermont to collect them from Miller’s home and found that the 18-year-old had bruises, no car, drivers licence, keys or bank card. Not long after returning home, the environmental advocate ran away to join The Flash star in New York City and since then the two have been travelling between Vermont, Los Angeles and Hawaii. Iron Eye’s parents also claim that Miller’s influence has caused them to come out as non-binary transgender when they previously identified as queer, gay and non-binary.

On Monday 6 June 2022, an Instagram account supposedly belonging to Iron Eyes posted an update addressing the situation, writing, “I’d like to make a statement to acknowledge the tragedy that is the narrative of the general public and the assumptions made on my behalf by my family and friends regarding my stability and otherwise.”

“I dropped out of bard five months ago, my friend and comrade William passed shortly thereafter, my mind was incredibly impacted and I needed space and time for the processing of grief,” they explained.

Iron Eyes continued by defending Miller, saying, “My comrade Ezra Miller for the entirety of the aforementioned era has only provided loving support and invaluable protection throughout this period of loss.”

This isn’t the first time Miller has been in the press for untoward behaviour. The actor has been arrested multiple times in Hawaii, once for assaulting a woman with a chair so violently that it left a half-inch gash on her head and again for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar.
