ezra miller apologises seeks treatment

After generating a slew of increasingly alarming headlines in recent months (and years), Ezra Miller has announced they are seeing treatment for “complex mental health issues”.

In the wake of multiple arrests, Miller — who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns — broke their silence about their violent and alarming behaviour, apologising for their actions.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a press statement provided to Variety.

“I want to apologise to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour,” they continued. “I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

This week, Miller was charged with felony burglary after allegedly stealing bottles of alcohol from a Vermont home. According to Rolling Stone, Vermont’s children service department is also currently looking for the mother and three children who had been living on Miller’s farm.

Earlier this year, they were also arrested twice in Hawaii, for disorderly conduct, harassment and second-degree assault.

In March, Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment after allegedly yelling at bar patrons who were singing karaoke, at one point grabbing a microphone from a woman. They were also reported to have lunged at a man who was playing darts.

The next month, they were arrested again, for second-degree assault. Allegedly, after being asked to leave a social event at a private residence, they “became irate… and reportedly threw a chair, striking a 26-year-old female on the forehead,” per police.

Miller has also made headlines for a slew of increasingly nefarious allegations from violent outbursts to child grooming, and even running an Icelandic cult. Their behaviour has become the centre of a public relations disaster for Warner Bros, as Miller is currently starring in DCEU film The Flash, which is slated for release in June 2023.

Warner Bros. was reportedly weighing their options in relation to Miller and how they should proceed with the release of The Flash, and was at one point considering scrapping the USD$200 million film all together, if Miller refused to address their behaviour.

A source told Variety that “Warner Bros. supports Miller’s decision to seek professional help”.

The Flash will (likely) hit cinemas in June 2023.
