AceShowbiz - Ezra Miller has found themselves at the center of serious allegations. In new legal documents obtained by TMZ and PEOPLE, parents of a teenage girl accused the "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" star of grooming their daughter with "cult-like" behavior.
In the court documents filed on Tuesday, June 7 in Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court, attorney and activist Chase Iron Eyes and his pediatrician wife Sara Jumping Eagle claimed that their daughter Takota Iron Eyes met Ezra back in 2016. At that time, she was just 12.
Ezra allegedly "took an immediate and apparently innocent liking" to Tokata. The Flash depicter even offered to pay for Tokata to attend college at Bard College at Simon's Rock in Massachusetts through an organization that they were associated with. According to the parents, the actor "would later use this against Tokata to create a sense of indebtedness."
Tokata herself seemingly dropped out of school in December. When her parents traveled to Ezra's home in Vermont the following month, they found their child without a driver's license, bank cards or keys.
Once home, Tokata reportedly spent three weeks "detoxifying" before flying to New York City to reunite with Ezra. The two later traveled to to Los Angeles and Hawaii, where Ezra has gotten into legal trouble and arrests in recent months.
Chase and Sara admitted that they're concerned for their daughter's safety and mental well-being because Ezra allegedly displays "cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior." They additionally accused Ezra of using "violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata."
While Ezra has yet to respond to the allegations, Takota came to their defense. "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," she said in an Instagram post.
"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," she added. "I am an adult and I deserve to feel authority in my own body."
Takota described her parents' legal action a "bout of blatant betrayal and toxicity" being used to "punish" her. She added, "Relationships in my life have been grossly effected, some detrimentally so. This behaviour is unacceptable and needs to be called out."
