Ezra Miller, the actor, revealed in a statement released Monday night that they are currently receiving therapy for “complicated mental health concerns.” This follows several months of erratic behavior that resulted in multiple arrests.
“Having recently gone through a period of severe stress, I now understand that I am suffering from significant mental health difficulties, and I have initiated ongoing treatment,” Miller is quoted as saying. “I would like to express my heartfelt apologies to everyone who has been alarmed or upset by my previous behavior. I have decided to put forth the effort necessary to restore my life to a state of health, security, and productivity.”
Miller is best known for his roles as Flash in the DC Extended Universe films and Credence Barebone in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. His apology, which was first published by Variety, comes after a slew of complaints were lodged about their behavior this year.
Miller was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment in March after allegedly hurling obscenities at karaoke bar patrons, stealing a microphone from a lady, and lunging at a man playing darts. According to the allegations, Miller also took the woman’s microphone. They were arrested again in Hawaii a month later on a charge of second-degree assault after it was alleged that they threw a chair at a woman, striking her in the head, when they were asked to leave a private property.
Miller was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of stealing bottles of alcohol from a home in Stamford, Vermont. They were charged with felony burglary, which is a more serious offense.
Miller has been arrested several times in the United States as a result of previous encounters with locals in Germany and Iceland.
Despite recent reports, Warner Bros. has stated that The Flash, the standalone film in which Miller will appear, will still be released in the summer of next year.
