Court ‘cannot locate or serve’ Ezra Miller in grooming case

The parents of an 18-year-old from North Dakota have obtained a protective order against “The Flash” star Ezra Miller, creating another scandal for the embattled actor.

But the teen’s parents and law enforcement are having a hard time finding Miller to serve the actor with the order, which accuses Miller of “physically and emotionally abusing” and grooming the teen.

Attorney and activist Chase Iron Eyes and his wife Sara Jumping Eagle filed Tuesday in the Standing Rock Sioux tribal court on a North Dakota reservation for a protective order for their child, Tokata Iron Eyes.

They accuse the 29-year-old Justice League star of “psychologically manipulating, physically intimidating and endangering the safety and well-being of Tokata Iron Eyes,” according to court documents obtained by The Times on Thursday.

A tribal court judge approved the injunction Tuesday, but according to a copy of the petition, “the court cannot locate or serve Miller.”

In a phone interview with The Times Thursday, Chase Iron Eyes said he and the court “have no idea where Tokata and Ezra should seek help from other jurisdictions” to comply or enforce the order, preventing Miller from contacting Tokata or to harass and hunt Iron Eyes and Jumping Eagle for 30 days. Miller is also ordered to stay 100 meters from the family home during this time.

The court has set a hearing for July 12 so Tokata and Miller can appear and “weigh,” Iron Eyes said.

Under the Domestic Violence Protection Order, the court will “grant the relief sought” in the injunction motion if Miller, who is non-binary and uses the pronouns “they/they,” fails to appear at the hearing. She cites the federal law against violence against women, which gives the order broad jurisdiction across the country.

“You move so much [that] We’re stuck in this legal limbo and can’t serve them long enough anywhere they are,” Chase Iron Eyes told The Times. “They were fugitives. They have avoided duty and now public pressure is mounting on them to make a decision, which makes us very concerned about Ezra’s volatile nature. … We are working very hard to ensure that this order is enforced everywhere.”

Miller officials did not respond to the Times request for comment.

Although Tokata is 18, the parents are still considered the teenager’s legal guardians under tribal court rules, Chase Iron Eyes said. The family said they have been working for months and across states to get Tokata to leave Miller so Tokata can “be her beautiful, independent self.”

The family has previously attempted to obtain temporary guardianship for Tokata, as well as an order for a mental health investigation in Vermont, where Miller has a home, according to documents verified by The Times. The family’s petition said she attempted to minister to Tokata in Vermont three times in May and also attempted to minister to the teenager in California in late May.

Iron Eyes and Jumping Eagle went to Santa Monica for a wellness check-up at the time, the petition said, while Jumping Eagle claimed Miller assaulted her. Jumping Eagle filed an incident report with the Santa Monica Police Department.

“Tokata needs help without Ezra’s interference. Ezra is a 29-year-old person who needs help on her own path and not interfering with Tokata’s development as her own person,” Jumping Eagle, a pediatrician, told the Times in a joint interview with her husband.

Iron Eyes told The Times that he and his wife first met Miller when the actor was involved in projects which the Sioux tribe worked on for the LandBack Reclamation Movement. Tokata and Miller reportedly met on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota in 2016 when Tokata was 12 and Miller was 23. Miller allegedly displayed a “pattern of corruption by a minor,” according to the family’s petition.

According to the petition, Miller “made contact with Tokata Iron Eyes under the pretense of supporting the Standing Rock Sioux tribe during the NoDAPL [No Dakota Access Pipeline] Movement… and immediately and seemingly innocently took a liking to Tokata Iron Eyes.”

However, as the relationship developed, Tokata’s parents became increasingly concerned about Tokata’s safety and mental well-being, and accused Miller of exhibiting “cult-like and psychologically manipulative controlling behavior,” the petition reads.

in the petition They also allege that the “Fantastic Beasts” star gave Tokata alcohol and drugs including marijuana and LSD and flown Tokata to London, Vermont, New York, California and Hawaii. (Earlier this year, Miller had clashed with the law in Hawaii; they pleaded no-appeal after an altercation at a bar in March, and Miller was arrested in April on suspicion of second-degree assault.)

Tokata’s parents said they allowed the teen to fly with Miller along with other tribe members to the 2017 premiere of Fantastic Beasts in London. Meanwhile, Miller allegedly tried to sleep in the same bed as then-14-year-old Tokata and was stopped by a companion who was accompanying her on the trip, according to the petition.

“Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threats of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions and drugs to control young Tokata,” says the filing, which lists several alleged incidents of inappropriateness.

Tokata’s parents said their child had previously been identified as “non-binary queer gay” and “Ezra has decided that Tokata is non-binary transgender,” the filing reads.

Leaping eagle said “When someone questions Ezra’s behavior, Ezra says he’s racist or transphobic, which isn’t the case in our case. It’s about not hurting people. Don’t take advantage of people.”

Iron Eyes and Jumping Eagle also alleged that Miller offered to pay Tokata to attend college at the age of 16 at Bard College in Simon’s Rock, Massachusetts. They said Miller “would later use this against Tokata to create a sense of guilt.”

The family’s petition also cites footage obtained by TMZ during Miller’s alleged altercations in Hawaii showing Tokata dating Miller. In the same document, Tokata’s parents Accuse Miller of “sexual predatory behavior” and using multiple social media accounts “to threaten and gas all victims and prevent the truth from coming out.”

An Instagram account that the family said is owned by Tokata issued a statement Monday to “acknowledge the tragedy that is the public narrative and the assumptions my family and friends have made on my behalf regarding.” my stability and other things”.

“I dropped out [Bard] Five months ago my friend and comrade William died shortly thereafter, my spirit was incredibly impacted and I needed space and time to process my grief,” the statement said. “Throughout the aforementioned era, my comrade Ezra Miller has offered nothing but loving support and invaluable protection in this time of loss.”

The statement also said that Tokata’s father’s allegations “carry no weight and are frankly transphobic,” accusing him of “emotional and psychological manipulation.”

Jumping Eagle told the Times that Tokata hasn’t had a phone for a while and that she doubts Tokata wrote the Monday statement. She also claims that Miller is “in control” from Tokata’s Instagram account and that the statement is in a language she heard from Miller.

Tokata then appeared in an Instagram video on the same account on Thursday to “clarify [that the statements] are direct from me” and that no one else controls Tokata’s Instagram account. (The person who runs the @tokatawin account on Instagram did not respond to The Times request for comment.)

“It’s really chilling that the narrative of the ‘victim in question’ isn’t trusted. I’ve been working really hard to make it really clear what’s going on,” Tokata said in the video on Thursday. adding that “It’s nobody’s business and nobody owes a story or an outcome. That is my life. Those are my choices and I am disappointed in every way by my parents and the press.”

“When will Ezra speak? With Tokata in charge of her own destiny, she will decide to return to Standing Rock to regain her credibility,” Chase Iron Eyes told The Times after Tokata’s latest video was released. “The same goes for Ezra.”

Meanwhile, Warner Bros.’ The long-awaited film The Flash, in which Miller is the titular character, is slated for release on June 23, 2023. It’s unclear how involved Miller will be beforehand.

Studio officials did not respond to The Times request for comment Thursday.
