Parents accuse Ezra Miller of grooming child with ‘cult-like’ behaviour

Two parents have accused actor Ezra Miller of grooming their now-18-year-old child from the age of 12 onward, filing a legal claim that alleges Miller displays “cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior.”

According to TMZ, which broke the initial story (later corroborated by several outlets), Miller met Tokata Iron Eyes while visiting the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. At the time of their meeting, Tokata was 12 years old and Miller 23.

Tokata’s parents, attorney and activist Chase Iron Eyes and pediatrician Sara Jumping Eagle, filed the court documents for a protective order on Tuesday in Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court. Tokata, too, is a prominent activist, having been a youth leader in protest of the proposed route of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In the filing, the parents allege Miller, who uses they/them pronouns, “took an immediate and apparently innocent liking” when they met Tokata. They claim the relationship with Miller, now 29, later changed, and accused the actor of providing Tokata with alcohol and drugs when they were a teen, including marijuana and LSD.

In the legal claim, Tokata’s parents allege Miller exhibited a “pattern of corrupting a minor.”

They continue, writing that Miller also paid for Tokata to attend Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Massachusetts when they were 16 years old. According to People magazine, court documents allege Miller “would later use this against Tokata to create a sense of indebtedness.”

After dropping out of college in December 2021, Tokata’s parents claim Tokata went to stay with Miller at their home in Vermont. The parents claim when they visited Tokata, their child had no driver’s licence, bank cards or keys.

According to the court documents, after three weeks of “detoxifying” at home, Tokata reunited with Miller and travelled to Hawaii with the actor. In April, while in Hawaii, Miller was arrested several times on charges ranging from assault to disorderly conduct.

In the complaint, Tokata’s parents claim Miller “uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata.”

Miller has yet to respond publicly to the allegations.

On Monday, Tokata released a statement on Instagram, addressing “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 there after, my mind was incredibly impacted and I’ve needed space and time for the processing of grief. My comrade Ezra Miller for the entirety of the aforementioned era has only provided loving support and invaluable protection throughout this period of loss,” Tokata wrote on Instagram.

“My father and his allegations 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. I am now aware of the severity of emotional and psychological manipulation I was made to endure while in my parents home.

“I am an adult and I deserve to feel authority in my own body.”

They added they are seeing a therapist to discuss their anxiety and “probable depression.”

Tokata’s parents told People magazine their child “doesn’t have a phone,” adding they doubted the statement came from Tokata.

People also reported that a judge signed Tokata’s parents’ request for a protective order, meaning Miller cannot contact or harass Tokata, Sara or Chase and cannot come within 100 yards of their residence. The order has yet to be served to Miller as the location of the actor and Tokata is unknown.

According to People, a hearing is scheduled for July 12.

In March and April, Miller had several run-ins with local Hawaii police. They were arrested and accused of throwing a chair and hitting a woman in the forehead at a get-together. Earlier, they were arrested for disorderly conduct at a karaoke bar in Hilo, Hawaii.

A couple on the island also accused the actor of threatening them in their hostel before stealing their belongings, including a passport and wallet (which contained various ID documents and a social security card).

The arrests triggered a meeting between DC executives to discuss the actor’s future involvement in movie projects where Miller would again be portraying Barry Allen/The Flash in several DC movies. All DC projects involving Miller were put on hold.

Miller is widely known for their roles as Patrick in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Credence Barebone/Aurelius Dumbledore in the Harry Potter Fantastic Beasts franchise.

Travis Barker has enjoyed a relaxing weekend with wife Kourtney Kardashian after his horrific bout of pancreatitis that left him in “excruciating” pain.

In photos shared to both his and Kardashian’s Instagram accounts, the couple revealed a sweet day-date they went on to the beach. Barker was even seen walking into his recording studio in Calabasas, California this week.

The Blink-182 drummer fell ill last week with the illness, which refers to the inflammation of the pancreas and causes symptoms of nausea, intense stomach pain and vomiting.

After falling ill, Barker, his children and Kardashian shared a slew of concerning and ambiguous posts about his health.

He later explained to fans that the flare-up had followed a routine endoscopy he had on Monday, June 27. By Wednesday, June 29, the 46-year-old rocker had been rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and I have been hospitalised ever since.

“During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in the very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”

Now, however, the rocker appears to be making a smooth recovery, with plenty of friends and family surrounding him.

While Kardashian made sure to get some fresh air with Barker, hiring a vintage orange ute that they later took down to the beach, fans and friends shared wishes of goodwill.

The singer’s mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, also made sure to show her support, sending Barker a sweet bouquet of orange flowers and a note.

Judging by the orange theme, it seems this could be Barker’s favourite colour.

The note from Jenner and her beau Corey Gamble read: “Dear Travis, Get well soon!!! We love you, Kris and Corey.”

Real World Homecoming's Danny Roberts Argues the Handling of His HIV Journey Failed Pedro Zamora

#Real #World #Homecoming039s #Danny #Roberts #Argues #Handling #HIV #Journey #Failed #Pedro #Zamora

While Danny said he appreciated that Homecoming “genuinely focused on my mental health journey,” he argued it not only did a disservice to his own story, but also those that came before him.

“What I want heard more than anything is that this was a failure to honor their own previous work and Pedro Zamora,” Danny said, “which was so important and forgotten.”

Pedro appeared on The Real World: San Francisco in 1994 and became one of the first openly gay men living with HIV to be seen on television. Zamora died of an AIDS-related illness on November 11, 1994 at the age of 22, just hours after the Real World: San Francisco finale aired.

In a statement to the Los Angeles Times, Bunim/Murray Productions—the production company responsible for The Real World—responded to Danny’s allegations that the HIV storyline was cut, saying it “has never shied away from sharing stories around HIV and AIDS” since the franchise premiered in 1992.

“The Homecoming series ultimately focused on Danny’s mental health journey,” a Bunim/Murray statement said, “which he shared publicly with all his former roommates for the first time.”
