“The Flash” actor Ezra Miller has announced they are seeking treatment for “complex mental health issues” and apologized for their “past behavior.”
Miller is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns.
“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 statement provided to Variety. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
Miller has been embroiled in numerous dust-ups with law enforcement and other controversies, most recently a burglary charge in Vermont, where they have a 95-acre farm. They were accused of breaking into a resident’s home and stealing bottles of alcohol.
Earlier this year, they were arrested twice in Hawaii, for disorderly conduct and harassment. They pleaded no contest to the disorderly conduct charge, paying a $500 fine, and the harassment charge was dismissed.
Miller has also been in the middle of a custody dispute between a mother and father from Hawaii. They allegedly flew the mother and her children to Vermont in April, but the family has since disappeared. Vermont State Police are looking for them after a judge ordered the children released to state custody.
Warner Bros. Discovery, which produces Miller’s two major films — “The Flash” and “Harry Potter” spinoff “Fantastic Beasts” — reportedly supports Miller’s decision to seek help. The studio had previously delayed release of their “Flash” film until next summer.
