Ezra Miller faces a new controversy after it came to light that the parents of one of the members of his circle of friends have requested a restraining order against him. In the legal documents that the couple has filed tuesday in the relevant court it is stated that the famous movie star has manipulated and controlled Tokata, 18, since they met six years ago on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, located between North Dakota and South Dakota.
At first they thought Ezra had developed an “innocent” interest in Tokata, whom they refer to as their daughter, and in 2017 he bought her a plane ticket to London to visit the set of her film ‘Fantastic Beasts’. He also offered to pay for Tokata’s education at a private school in Massachusetts, but over time he would have begun to display troubling behavior more like a “cult.”
According to the parents’ version of events, Ezra has manipulated and coerced Tokata into identifying as a transgender, non-binary person who uses the neutral pronouns ‘they/them’, following her own example. In addition, they consider that it is to blame for Tokata leaving his studies last December to move into the mansion that the celebrity owns in Vermont. When they traveled there a month later, they discovered that he apparently couldn’t leave of his own free will because he didn’t have his driver’s license or his bank cards or car keys.
Tokata spent three weeks at home before leaving again, this time to meet Ezra in New York and later travel to Los Angeles and Hawaii, where the ‘Flash’ star ended up being arrested for leading several riots. However, Tokata has posted a statement on his Instagram account in which he refers to Ezra as his “comrade” and maintains that he has only provided him with “support and protection”.
“My father and the accusations he has made carry no weight and are frankly transphobic because they are based on the notion that I am somehow incapable of having coherent thinking or opposing the opinions of my own peers, who are concerned about my well-being,” he said.
