Ezra Miller parents accuse him of grooming
Ezra Miller parents accuse him of grooming his 18-year-old activist daughter with cult-like behaviour.
While the parents claim Ezra Miller uses “violence and intimidation” to control their child, the 18-year-old has spoken out about the parents’ “emotional and psychological manipulation.” Ezra Miller is accused of grooming a now-18-year-old activist since she was 12 years old, and the parents are seeking court intervention.
Chase Iron Eyes, an attorney and activist, and his paediatrician wife Sara Jumping Eagle claim that Miller, now 29, has been manipulating and controlling their daughter Tokata Iron Eyes since the two met in 2016 at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Miller “developed an instant and obviously innocent like” to Tokata at the time, according to the report.
Miller allegedly provided Tokata booze and substances including marijuana and LSD as an adolescent, according to the parents, and had a “habit of corrupting a kid.”
According to the records, Miller offered to pay for Tokata to attend Bard College in Simon’s Rock in Massachusetts at the age of 16 through the Quiet group, with which the actor was associated. According to the records, Miller “would subsequently use this against Tokata to create a sense of obligation.”
In December, Tokata dropped out of school. Their parents claim they went to Miller’s house in Vermont in January and discovered Tokata was missing their driver’s licence, bank cards, and keys, prohibiting them from leaving on their own.
Tokata returned home and spent three weeks “detoxifying,” according to his parents, before fleeing to New York City to reconnect with Miller, who then accompanied Tokata to Los Angeles and Hawaii, where Miller has been involved in legal issues and arrests in recent months.
Chase and Sara are concerned for their daughter’s safety and mental health, claiming Miller engages in “cult-like and psychologically manipulative, dominating conduct.” According to the lawsuit, Miller “controls a young teenage Tokata by aggression, intimidation, threat of violence, terror, psychosis, delusions, and narcotics.”
PEOPLE has been unable to contact Miller for comment.
On Monday, Tokata posted a message on Instagram with the hashtag “CONTEXT,” addressing “assumptions made on my behalf by my family and friends on my stability and otherwise.” (Chase and Sara informed PEOPLE about this.) Tokata does not have a phone and doubts that the statement was written by them.)
“I dropped out of bard five months ago, and shortly after that, my buddy and comrade William went away. My psyche was profoundly shaken, and I’ve needed space and time to absorb my loss. Throughout the whole of the aforementioned timeframe, my friend Ezra Miller has only supplied loving support and crucial protection “Tokata penned the following.
Tokata said, “My father’s accusations are unfounded and, to be honest, transphobic, based on the erroneous assumption that I am incapable of cogent reasoning or challenging the concerns of people who care about my well-being. I’m now aware of the extent of the emotional and psychological abuse I was subjected to while living with my parents.”
“I am an adult,” Tokata said, adding that they are “eager” to meet with a therapist about their “anxiety and possibly sadness.”
“My decisions are my own,” Tokata added, calling their parents’ legal move as a “bout of open betrayal and poison” being used to “punish me with.”
“Relationships in my life have been severely impacted, some in a negative way. This is terrible behaviour that must be addressed “Tokata came to a conclusion.
Tokata is a speaker who has previously appeared at events such as Supercharge: Women All In in September 2020, the MAKERS Conference in February 2020, and All It Takes Lasting Legacy in April 2018. Actress Shailene Woodley, who has protested the Dakota Access Pipeline, as well as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, follow them on Instagram.
Tokata shared a video showing them laughing on a set of stairs with Miller, who looked to be smoking, and another buddy on Sunday.
Miller is not allowed to contact, harass, or come within 100 yards of Tokata, Sara, or Chase, according to a protection order approved by a court. Miller and Tokata’s whereabouts are unknown, thus the court “cannot find or serve” the order, they said. On July 12, a hearing will be held.
