Ezra Miller has criticised a newly lifted protection order put in place by a woman who accused him of acting inappropriately towards her child.
The Flash star denied the allegations and the order was lifted on 30 June, a year after it was issued by a judge, according to court documents shared by Deadline.
In the original 2022 filing, a Massachusetts woman accused Miller of acting inappropriately toward her child, now 12, and harassing her family, according to a report in the Daily Beast. Following its lifting, Miller slammed the imposition of the order and the “damage” it had caused him.
“I’m encouraged by today’s outcome and very grateful at this moment to everyone who has stood beside me and sought to ensure that this egregious misuse of the protection order was halted,” the 30-year-old wrote in a statement posted to Instagram on Friday, claiming they “have been unjustly and directly targeted.”
It has been a turbulent few years for the We Need To Talk About Kevin actor, who sought mental health treatment last year and has faced a host of legal woes and allegations of erratic behaviour.
In their statement, Miller added: “On a personal note, I want everyone to know that I am continuing to do my best to preserve my own wellness and what I can to reverse the collateral damage this ordeal has brought upon me and those close to me.
“Finally, to all you many beings in this world who have had the enormous courage to see me through it all and make it here with me-I will spend a long time trying to explain to you what it has meant to have your support. You have my undying gratitude, admiration and love.”
No criminal charges were ever filed in the case and Miller’s attorney, Marissa Elkins, told Deadline in a statement that the original order “was based on untrue allegations”. The accuser did not immediately comment on the lifting of the order.
