The parents of activist Tokata Iron Eyes have accused actor Ezra Miller of using drugs, violence, and intimidation to exert a cult-like influence over their daughter, and petitioned a court to issue an order of protection against the Justice League star.
According to court documents first seen and reported by TMZ, Miller is accused of grooming Tokata, now 18, since they first met in 2016 when she was 12 and Miller was 23 while the actor was visiting the Standing Rock Reservation in South Dakota. Iron Eyes's parents claim Miller supplied their daughter with marijuana, alcohol, and LSD in order to control and manipulate her.
Miller and Iron Eyes developed a close relationship and the Fantastic Beasts star later flew Tokata to London in 2017 when she was 14 to visit the studio where the movie was filmed. Her parents say Miller's unnatural influence resulted in their daughter eventually dropping out of a private school in Massachusetts last year.
When the parents flew to visit the Vermont home of their daughter, they claim they found Miller had confiscated her driver's license, car keys, and ATM card, leaving her wholly dependent upon Miller and unable to live her life independently.
The parents further claim they spent three weeks "detoxifying" their daughter of Miller's control, only to have her flee and rejoin the actor in New York earlier this year. Iron Eyes accompanied Miller to Los Angeles and later to Hawaii where the actor was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment following a bizarre incident at a karaoke bar in Hilo. Patrons called police to claim Miller was becoming aggressive, and they were later arrested after reportedly accusing officers of inappropriately touching their genitalia.
"Hey, you just touched my penis. Please don't do that," Miller reportedly said, adding "I'm transgender, nonbinary, and I don't want to be searched by a man!"
Miller was arrested a second time after the two residents they were staying with in Hilo filed for a temporary restraining order against Miller, alleging the actor "burst into the bedroom of the petitioner(s) and threatened" the alleged male victim by "saying 'I will bury you and your slut wife.'"
An unverified Instagram account purportedly belonging to Tokata Iron Eyes posted a statement thanking "comrade Ezra Miller" for providing only "loving support and invaluable protection." The statement goes on to claim the allegations in the court documents "hold no weight and are frankly transphobic and based in the notion that I am somehow incapable of coherent thought or opposing opinions to those of my own kindred worrying about my well being (sic)."
A hearing in the matter has been scheduled for next month.
