    An increasingly paranoid Ezra Miller has taken to wearing bulletproof body armor and carrying at least one gun almost everywhere they go, according to a new report from Insider that traces a timeline of Miller’s activities and finds a disturbing pattern: They establish a home base, financially support artists and young women, and then attempt to control and manipulate their sexual partners, causing one of their alleged victims to compare the practice to a cult.

    Miller allegedly believes that they are being followed by the FBI and Ku Klux Klan, the former because multiple parents and young people have accused the actor of grooming minors, and the latter because Miller released a video earlier this year demanding that members of the KKK kill themselves.

    Tokata Iron Eyes, an 18-year-old traveling with Miller whose parents have sought a restraining order against the star, called the body armor “a fashionable safety measure in response to actual attacks and received death threats.”


    Miller met Tokata in 2016 when she was a 12-years-old activist opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline. Miller flew Tokata to different places, including London for the premiere of their movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and when she was 18, family friends saw the two of them having sex. Miller also reportedly asked to share a bed with Tokata when she was only 14, though a Tribal elder claims to have stopped them, and earlier this year her parents accused The Flash star of controlling their daughter with “violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs.”

    This was not an isolated incident. In 2020, the world first learned of Miller’s increasingly erratic behavior when a video showed them choking a woman in Iceland. But their time in Iceland was more eventful — and disquieting — than even that video would suggest.

    During the two months Miller spent in Iceland, rumors spread among locals that the actor was running a cult out of an AirBnB. Permanent residents described him as an aggressive person with a revolting smell who rarely changed out of their clothes. Three people recalled Miller walking barefoot through Reykjavík, noting long, unclipped toenails and what may have been an infected gash on their foot.


    The AirBnB, a house in the Reykjavík suburb of Kópavogur, was described by one visitor as a “commune” with beds laid out on the floor. Miller collected a community of artists, ex-pats, and beautiful young women, who were said to hang on their every word. “I felt like everyone was hypnotized,” the visitor said.

    Miller led group meditations and claimed to possess supernatural powers. They also paid for food, lodging, and marijuana, and once handed a musician the equivalent of $1,500 for their birthday. But Miller would become enraged at dissent.

    “Nobody ever was kind of allowed to disagree with them,” said a young woman who’d known Miller in Iceland and had a brief sexual relationship with them when she was 18. “Their reality painted everybody else’s reality. There was no room for anybody else’s opinion or feelings.”


    One person recalled Miller cornering them in the house, saying, “You don’t like my hospitality,” and claiming to be able to read her mind. The actor also flew into a rage when she attempted to use her phone. She said she snuck away and texted her family to pick her up. “I was a bit traumatized for a while,” she recalled. “It was one of the weirdest days I’ve ever experienced.”

    Another woman stayed with Miller for six days. “My ego was thriving,” she said, adding that she was “really lost” at the time and abusing drugs and alcohol. The first time they had sex was a threesome with another young woman. “After that, Ezra basically said: ‘My room is your room. This is now where you’re going to stay.’ And I was like, ‘Cool.'”

    “At one moment they would look me in the eye and be like, ‘I love you,’ and be this really nice, beautiful person,” she said. But right afterward, they would “tell me that I was fucking disgusting.” She added, “There was a lot of psychological abuse.”


    “Ezra was super manipulative,” she explained. “They kind of had us all under their finger. They were able to twist and pull everything that I thought I knew about the world.” After six days, Miller left town, and the woman returned to her apartment, where her roommate gave her literature on cults. Reading about leaders who promised spiritual or material wealth while simultaneously cutting people off from family, she realized it was “the exact same thing that I was in with Ezra, and that really scared me.”

    “It was only six days, but it honestly felt way, way longer,” she said. “I remember feeling, like, ‘Wow, I don’t know how I’m going to recover from this.'”
