A mother and her 12-year-old child have been granted an order of protection against actor Ezra Miller by a Massachusetts judge.
On Wednesday, the Greenfield District Court said the temporary harassment prevention order “was issued without advance notice because the Court determined that there is a substantial likelihood of immediate danger of harassment,” NBC News reported.
The mother – who asked not to be identified out of privacy concerns – said she and her child met Miller through an acquaintance.
The Daily Beast spoke with the mother, the 12-year-old, and a neighbor who was present during the altercation.
On Feb. 2, Miller was allegedly visiting a musician friend in Greenfield, Massachusetts, which is 40 miles from Miller’s house in Stamford, Vermont.
Miller was wearing a bulletproof vest, according to the neighbor.
Miller became infuriated when the mother said she had recently traveled with “her tribe” of people – which caused Miller to lash out and accuse her of cultural appropriation, according to the report.
The Daily Beast reported, “Then, a conversation about board games allegedly went sideways when, after Miller claimed that the board game Parcheesi had Rastafarian roots, the visiting neighbor –who is half-Black – questioned Miller as to which sect of the Rastafari movement it originated from.”
“At this point, Ezra explodes and started screaming directly into my face,” the neighbor told the outlet. “They said, ‘You don’t even know what the f*** you’re talking about. What did you say to me? What did you just say to me?!’”
The neighbor claimed that Miller opened up one side of a jacket – which revealed a gun.
According to the mother and neighbor, the 29-year-old actor said, “I’ve talked extensively with your child, and they have a lot of power to them. At one point, you’re going to realize that you don’t have any control over them anymore. They’re an elevated being, and they would be lucky to have someone like me guide them.”
Miller then allegedly verbally attacked the mother – who dresses in a goth aesthetic. He purportedly accused her of being a witch and a vampire, and screamed at her, “Do you want to drink my blood? Do you!?”
The “Justice League” and “Fantastic Beasts” star allegedly apologized for his behavior, but there were reportedly three other concerning confrontations – the most recent on June 4.
The mother alleged that Miller tightly and uncomfortably hugged the child.
“During the June visit, the child expressed their interest in horses, and Miller said that they would acquire several horses so that the child could help them care for the herd on their Vermont farm, which also struck them as inappropriate,” according to The Daily Beast.
Earlier this month, Miller was accused of grooming a young environmental activist by using ‘cult-like’ behavior, drugs, and threats of violence. The parents of Tokata Iron Eyes accused Miller of “psychologically manipulating, physically intimidating, and endangering the safety and welfare” of their now-18-year-old daughter. The parents claim that Miller began grooming their daughter at age 12.
Tokata Iron Eyes has defended her relationship with “comrade” Miller.
Authorities have yet to “locate or serve” Miller with a restraining order that was initiated by the parents.
Miller possibly taunted police in an Instagram post, according to Newsweek. Miller posted a meme that read, “You cannot touch me, I am in another universe.” Miller has since deleted his entire Instagram account.
Miller, the 12-year-old child, and Tokata Iron Eyes all identify as nonbinary individuals.
