Ezra Miller has announced, following a string of troubling and violent incidents, that they have committed to getting treatment for mental health issues.

The Flash star released a statement through their rep addressing their behavior, which has led to legal trouble along with allegations of assault and abuse.

“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 said in the statement. “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.”

This comes on the heels of having been charged with felony burglary in Vermont, following an incident during which police said the actor absconded with several bottles of alcohol from a home where the homeowners were not present.

This is just the latest in what appears to be a pattern of destructive and criminal behavior by Miller. The actor was arrested twice in Hawaii in March of this year, first for allegedly harassing fellow bar patrons, then for threatening the couple he was staying with. Miller allegedly told them “I will burn you and your slut wife” in addition to stealing a passport and wallet. The following month, they were arrested again for allegedly throwing a chair at a woman at a house party in Hawaii.

In June, allegations of grooming surfaced when the parents of 18-year-old Tokata Iron Eyes asked a court to intervene after alleging that Miller is a danger to their daughter, whom they had known since she was 12. “Ezra uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata,” her parents said.

Later that month, the parents of a 12-year-old Massachusetts girl were granted a restraining order against Miller following an incident in which the actor allegedly showed them a gun and claimed the girl was “an elevated being” who “would be lucky to have someone like me guide them.”

Again in June, Rolling Stone reported Miller was accused of hosting a mother and her three young children in an unsafe environment, on a farm in Vermont, alleging that unattended guns were lying around the property.

Despite the troubling headlines piling up, Warner Bros. has maintained that Miller’s upcoming film The Flash will still be released. Some fans were particularly angered by that news, following the shocking cancellation of the almost completely finished Batgirl film

Following Miller’s latest arrest, the film studio was rumored to be reconsidering the film’s future. It remains to be seen if that changes now that Miller has agreed to treatment.
