In a statement provided to Variety by a representative of the actor, Miller broke their silence about the troubling behavior that they have exhibited in recent years, which has led to a series of legal issues and assault and abuse allegations. Miller also apologized for their actions.
“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,” Miller says. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
He’s not the only one with “complex mental heath issues,” as can be spotted by the many instances of “they” and “their” in the above Variety article. As Jim Treacher asked last month: Why Should I Use Ezra Miller’s Preferred Pronouns?
