Scandal-hit actor Ezra Miller, 29, has been accused of taking control of a teenage activist, plying her with alcohol, LSD and marijuana, and displaying ‘cult-like’ behavior toward her.
Tokata Iron Eyes, now 18, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, met the Flash star when she was just 12 years old when the then 23-year-old Miller visited their reservation in North Dakota.
The film star, who identifies as non-binary and queer and uses the pronouns they / them, would likely haven been filming Justice League at the time, where one of the sets was located in nearby Illinois.
Tokata’s parents claim they sparked up an unlikely friendship and Miller even flew her to London two years later to visit the Fantastic Beasts studio.
They also claim in a lawsuit that the actor, supplied their underage daughter with drugs and alcohol and disrupted her Massachusetts private schooling to such an extent that she dropped out of in December. They said the actor had exhibited a ‘pattern of corrupting a minor.’
Her parents also claimed Miller displayed ‘cult-like psychological manipulation’ and had ‘controlling behavior,’ according to People.
Tokata’s father Chase Iron Eyes, a former Democratic House candidate for North Dakota, and his wife, said in their lawsuit: ‘Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata. ‘
The parents are asking the court to intervene and issue an order of protection against Miller on behalf of their daughter. A hearing is set for next month.
