In an August 4 article from IndieWirebased on a paywall-protected Insider exposé, new details emerged about Ezra Miller’s behavior in Iceland and Hawaii dating back to 2020. The article details behavior from a range of sources: from Miller’s longtime music collaborator and music producer Oliver Ignatius to an Icelandic woman alleging she was verbally abused during her sexual relationship with them to the parents of 18-year-old activist Gibson, also known as Tokata Iron Eyes. Their parents are accusing the actor of abuse and grooming, alongside a more recent accusation from the mother of an 11-year-old child accusing Miller of grooming too.
In 2016, Miller met Tokata when she was 12 during the Dakota Pipeline protests. According to IndieWirethe young activist’s parents, Sara Jumping Eagle and Chase Iron Eyes accused the actor of grooming Tokata for six years and facilitating an inappropriate relationship marred by drugs and physical and verbal abuse. Tokata, who now goes by Gibson on Instagram and uses she/they pronouns, adamantly denies her parents’ claims and says, “Ezra is innocent.”
In the exposé, Ignatius, who previously accused the musician of stealing music, shared a similar story about Miller’s verbal abuse, recalling an exchange he overheard between the actor and Tokata in Hawaii. The music producer remembers seeing Miller take Tokata’s phone and criticizing their makeup. He also recalled Miller telling Tokata about her makeup, “‘What the fuck are you doing? Putting on this fucking clown paint?'”
However, Tokata remembers the incident much differently. “I think the fact that a catty comment made by a queer person about makeup being considered abuse is actually quite homophobic rhetoric,” she said.
Ezra Miller’s Alleged Cult in Iceland
The woman Miller assaulted in 2020 in Iceland broke her silence at the beginning of July 2022. However, more details about Miller’s time in the country running a “cult”-like Airbnb rental out of Reykjavík have emerged. “Nobody ever was kind of allowed to disagree with them,” one young woman said. “Their reality painted everybody else’s reality. There was no room for anybody else’s opinion or feelings.”
Per the Insider report, “One woman who visited the house for a day in March 2020 recalled several mattresses spread out on the floor and compared the house to a ‘commune.’ She was struck by how enamored guests seemed to be with Miller, hanging on their every word and seeming unfazed by Miller’s mood swings. ‘I felt like everyone was hypnotized,’ she said,” before alleging Miller often had emotional outbursts. Other women in the exposé also said Miller would often go from “being a friendly host to this really angry person.”
