Flashs Ezra Miller Agrees To Mental Health Treatment As Burglary Court Date Looms

After months of run-ins with the law and a spirally PR crisis for Warner Bros, Flash star Ezra Miller has decided to seek treatment to counter a self-described “time of intense crisis.”

A week after the non-binary identifying Miller was slapped with a burglary charge by Vermont law enforcement, the Justice League alum said today in a statement that “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.”

“I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior,” they added. “I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

The abrupt move Monday follows at least two months of efforts by Miller’s long time CAA agent, Warner Bros, and other close knit colleagues, friends, and family to encourage they to pursue help. Perhaps tipping the scales, on August 7, Miller received a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court Bennington Criminal Division on September 26 for arraignment on the burglary charge

While the scheduled release of the high testing Flash next June has never been in serious peril so far, Miller’s flurry of altercations and questionable actions from Hawaii to Iceland to Germany and the Green Mountain State have lead many to wonder when the next speedy shoe was to drop. Knowing that they wouldn’t have a $200 million film without Miller, who is in almost every scene of the DC pic, Warner Bros brass have been talking to the actor and they’s reps for weeks about a more “pro-active” mental health strategy for the performer.

“This isn’t about business, it’s about a human being who is clearly in pain,” one exec told Deadline tonight of the influence the David Zaslav-run company has tried to bring to Miller’s situation.

While the viral video of Miller apparently choking a female patron of a Reykjavik bar in April never led to charges from either party, the actor was arrested twice in America’s 50th state. One arrest in April was for second-degree assault. As well as the Hawaiian and Vermont charges, Fantastic Beasts vet Miller has faced allegations of sexual abuse. There’s also been a temporary harassment prevention order they received the past few months from a 12-year-old and a mother in Greenfield, MA for allegedly menacing them. Additionally, the parents of 18-year-old Tokata Iron Eyes filed a protection order against Miller, accusing them of grooming and brainwashing their child – a state of affairs the 18-year in question vehemently denied.

Miller first appeared as Barry Allen/The Flash in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They subsequently cameoed in Suicide Squad, was featured in Justice League, and made a short appearance in the Peacemaker finale earlier this year with Aquaman (Jason Momoa) The big budgeted Andy Muschietti helmed Flash wrapped late last year. Some pick-up shoots were conducted over the summer this year as final post-production winds down.

Variety first reported the news of Miller’s mental health treatment decision today.
