Flash star Ezra Miller has apologized for their recent behavior.
According to Variety, the 29-year-old actor confirmed that they suffer from “complex mental health issues” following a string of issues, including allegations of assault and abuse.
“Having recently gone through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I suffer from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said. “I want to apologize to everyone I have alarmed and upset about my past behavior. I am determined to do the necessary work to return to a healthy, safe and productive phase of my life.”
Earlier this month, Miller was charged with felony burglary — adding to their growing legal troubles. They are due to appear in court on September 27 on this charge.
Miller, who plays Justice League member The Flash in their own solo film, has been accused of throwing a chair at a woman, tending to minors and other serious misconduct. In addition to the burglary charges in Vermont, Miller has seen legal troubles crop up in Hawaii, Massachusetts and North Dakota.
The actor attracted national attention when they abruptly deleted their Instagram account and seemingly disappeared. Warner Bros. Discovery has kept quiet amid growing concerns about Miller’s behavior, but it was recently reported that the studio is preparing for multiple scenarios when it comes to The Flash. It is likely that this is partly responsible for Miller’s sudden statement.
The first scenario, as detailed by a Warner Bros. insider, is that the studio is going ahead with the planned release of The Flash, but with limited press. The only condition, in this scenario, is that Miller seeks professional help after returning to their childhood home.
