Following disturbing behavior that has led to allegations of harassment and burglary, as well as allegations of assault and abuse, Ezra Miller says they are seeking treatment for “complex mental health issues.”
Miller says in the statement, sent through a representative to: The Hollywood Reporter“Having recently gone through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I suffer from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment. I want to apologize to everyone I have alarmed and upset about my past behavior. I am determined to do the necessary work to return to a healthy, safe and productive phase of my life.”
The statement comes after a year in which Miller was the subject of much controversy.
The actor, who uses she/she pronouns, was arrested twice in Hawaii, once in March for disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a karaoke bar, and again in April for an alleged assault involving beating a woman. on the head in a private home. The parents of an 18-year-old filed a protection order against Miller, alleging that the actor nursed their child from the age of 12. (The child denied being coerced by Miller in an Instagram post.) Most recently, Miller was charged Aug. 8 with felony burglary in Vermont, where the actor lives, after allegedly lifting bottles of alcohol from an empty neighborhood house in May.
More to come.
