The Native American teen, 18, ‘brainwashed’ into running away with Ezra Miller has defended The Flash star and insists she left with the 29-year-old of her own free will.

Tokata Iron Eyes, 18, who now goes by the name Gibson, shared a video on Instagram Thursday where she said her parents’ allegations that she had been ‘groomed’ and ‘brainwashed’ by the troubled star were misguided.

‘This is my life. These are my decisions. And I’m disappointed in my parents and the press in every way,’ said Gibson who appears to use they/them pronouns similar to Miller.’ 

They added that it was ‘distressing’ that the ‘narrative of the ‘victim’ in question is not being granted any trust.’

‘I worked really hard to make really clear what was going on,’ they continued. ‘I’d like to say that it’s nobody’s business and that no one is owed a story. Or an outcome.’ 

Gibson released the statement after her parents accused Miller of ‘brainwashing’ her into running away with him. They claim the actor also tried to get into bed with their child – a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe – during a trip to London when they were just 14.

Her mother, Dr. Sara Jumping Eagle, from North Dakota,  said she and husband Chase Iron Eyes now have ‘no idea’ where 18-year-old Gibson is – after lodging legal papers for a protection order against Miller, 29.

Sara says the last time she saw her daughter was in Santa Monica on May 29 after she and her husband followed up on a tip that Tokata was in California with the DC star.

Miller and Gibson jumped in a taxi after being confronted and sped off, she said.

Gibson, who said they’d recently lost a friend and dropped out of Bard College in New York, had posted on Tuesday that they’d left home because they ‘needed space and time for the processing of grief’ and insisted that Miller ‘has only provided loving support and invaluable protection’.

They also accused their parents of ’emotional and psychological’ manipulation while living with them.

‘I am an adult and I deserve to feel authority in my own body,’ Gibson adds. 

But after many questioned whether it was Gibson actually releasing the statements, they posted the video claiming that the messages were coming from them directly.

‘I’ve become aware that some people are saying that my statements were not written by me. I’d like to clarify that they are, in fact, directly from me. Nobody is controlling my Instagram account,’ they said.

They added that they don’t have a phone right now ‘out of my own personal conviction.’

Gibson did not say where they were or if they were with Miller during the video.

Meanwhile, Gibson’s parents fear the worst.

Unable to hold back tears, Sara told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview: ‘I would say to her now what I said to her then as she was going down the road away from me.

‘I love you and that I want you to be safe.’

Sara, a pediatrician, faltered before continuing: ‘I would also say, you don’t deserve to be in a toxic relationship where you are not being protected.

‘You are beautiful and amazing. You are a shining light. You should just be allowed to be yourself.’

She said Gibson was like a ‘zombie’ and ‘very, very thin’ when she last saw her.

Chase, 44, and Sara have lodged legal papers in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court in North Dakota, which contain startling allegations against the troubled star. A hearing is set for next month.

The lawsuit is the latest legal case involving Miller, who was arrested in Hawaii in April for allegedly throwing a chair at a woman's head after refusing to leave her home. He's pictured in his mugshot

The parents claim in a lawsuit that the actor plied their underage child with drugs including LSD and disrupted her Massachusetts private schooling to such an extent that she dropped out from Bard College at Simon’s Rock in December.

When they flew to Miller’s home in Stamford, Vermont, in January to retrieve Tokata, they allegedly found bruises on her body and she no longer had a driver license, car keys or a bank card.

And when the teenager was returned to her parents’ home, they fled again to New York to reunite with Miller and they have since allegedly been traveling together to Vermont, Hawaii and Los Angeles.

Mom Sara told DailyMail.com: ‘During this entire time since then we have only been able to talk to Tokata three times, on the phone.

‘Two of those times Ezra interrupted and I could also hear him in the background – so we weren’t able to freely have a discussion.

‘Ezra has control over [Gibson’s] Instagram account, which is really the only way I have been able to send her messages. She barely replied, and sometimes I couldn’t tell if it was [Gibson] or Ezra replying.

‘Ezra was isolating [Gibson] from family and friends. And then brainwashing her. She is still with him. I don’t know where. When I tried to talk to her they jumped in a car and took off. We have no idea of their location.

‘I am fearing for her safety.’

The lawsuit is the latest legal case involving the star, who was arrested in Hawaii in April for allegedly throwing a chair at a woman’s head after refusing to leave her home, weeks after another arrest for spitting in someone’s face in a bar during a game of darts.

The most serious allegations over Gibson by Chase, a former Democratic House candidate for North Dakota, and his wife, can be revealed in detail for the first time by DailyMail.com.

Excerpts from the lawsuit filed in the Standing Rock Tribal Court make shocking allegations against Miller, including that they tried to climb into bed with Gibson when they was 25 and they were just 14

They begin their lawsuit saying Miller is ‘currently physically and emotionally abusing Tokata, psychologically manipulating, physically intimidating and endangering’ her safety and welfare.

This is ‘while perpetuating intimate partner violence upon’ their daughter ‘after having groomed Tokata since 2016 when she was 12 years old.’

They also alleged Miller ‘uses violence, intimidation, threat of violence, fear, paranoia, delusions, and drugs to hold sway over a young adolescent Tokata’.

The star ‘established contact with Tokata Iron Eyes under the pretense’ of helping the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe during a movement to stop an underground oil pipeline in 2016,’ they say.

Miller, who identifies as non-binary and queer and uses the pronouns they/them, would likely have been filming Justice League at the time, where one of the sets was located in Illinois.

He took ‘an immediate and apparently innocent liking’ to the teenager and ‘began to formulate relations,’ the papers continue.

The star flew her with other Standing Rock tribal members to London to tour the Harry Potter movie studio in December 2017 – when they ‘attempted to sleep in the same bed at Tokata, who was 14 years old at the time. Miller was 25 years old at the time,’ her parents’ lawsuit alleges. Miller had appeared in the 2016 Potter spin-off movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

‘Ezra was prevented from sleeping in the same bed with Tokata at that time by a chaperone who can attest to this as the witness lives on the Standing Rock reservation… Tokata’s parents learned of this episode in June 2022.

‘Tokata had read all the available Harry Potter books and was/is enamored by the fantasy/celebrity of Ezra Miller at all times during her still formative years as a young adolescent. Ezra has recently and violently abused Tokata’s vulnerability and trust,’ Chase and Sara say.

The couple say in the papers that their daughter had been traveling with Miller and friends around California and Louisiana and they arrived back in the New York area in late January this year.

It was there Miller ‘reportedly gave Tokata an unknown dose of LSD… after drugging Tokata into an incapacitated state’ she was then ‘carted back to Ezra’s farm’ in Vermont.

‘Her mental state deteriorated rapidly to the point that Ezra Miller and the houseguests at Ezra Miller’s property finally decided to call Tokata’s parents,’ the papers allege.

‘Tokata had been screaming so much after Ezra gave her LSD, that she lost her voice.’

Miller also obsessed about the KKK because they believed the hate group had burned down a friend’s house in North Carolina, the papers continue.

He ‘transported an unknown supply of firearms and ammunition from Vermont to North Carolina for a potential confrontation with the KKK.

‘Tokata is compelled to go along and she is subjected to heightened anxiety, impending violence, firearms, drugs use and overbearing fear of this armed situation. To this day Tokata is paranoid about the KKK surveilling them, tracking them and generally being a target of the KKK.’

The pair flew to Vermont in January and got their ‘incapacitated’ daughter back home to North Dakota.

‘Tokata did not have and did not know the whereabouts of her bank card, driver license, Standing Rock tribal identification, passport, most of her clothing, car keys and any other items needed for her to navigate life on her own,’ says the filing.

Gibson spent ‘the next three weeks detoxifying from whatever drugs were used with Ezra Miller during the preceding time frame, at the very least cannabis, alcohol, LSD,’ the parents say.

‘It wasn’t until ten days went by that Tokata’s parents felt Tokata would be able to function in some capacity on her own.’

Gibson’s parents got her replacement ID. But in February the teenager reunited with Miller after telling them she was going to stay with a friend in Brooklyn, New York.

The pair were then spotted in Los Angeles that month before heading to Hawaii where they stayed in March and April – and Miller caused more controversy with the chair incident. ‘There’s evidence that Miller was the subject of 10 different calls to Hawaii law enforcement,’ the papers allege.

Eventually the pair return to Miller’s Vermont home, where Bennington County Sheriff’s Department attempted to serve an order for substance abuse evaluation on Gibson, instigated by their father.

Deputies make three unsuccessful attempts to serve the notice in May. On the first, Miller ‘lies to law enforcement and falsely states’ the teenager is not at his home, the lawsuit says.

During that time, two ‘former friends’ of Miller saw him ‘using threats of violence, extreme yelling and aggressive outbursts’ at Gibson, the lawsuit alleges.

‘Ezra Miller aggressively got in her face calling her a ‘b****’ and asking her ‘what are you putting make up on for you f***ing b****; Ezra also called Tokata a ‘thieving b****’, ‘c*** b****’.’

The papers also allege Miller told Gibson they had a sex addiction and they eventually ‘convinced’ her to have sex with him in January this year to help ‘cure’ it. They continue: ‘Ezra’s behavior shows a pattern of sexually predatory behavior.’

Sara told DailyMail.com: ‘In January, Ezra physically assaulted our daughter. We have photos of bruises. Initially we weren’t clear on what had happened because Ezra had given our daughter LSD and other drugs.

‘Our daughter was out of her mind at that point.’

Recounting the couple’s desperation, she continued: ‘My husband filed some orders in May and tried to get them served when we heard Tokata and Ezra were in Vermont.

‘Ezra lied and said Tokata wasn’t there. The cops tried to serve those papers three times. And then they took off – we heard they were in New York, then we heard they were in Oklahoma.

‘Then we heard through a friend of a friend of a friend they were in LA – and that Tokata had a black eye. Ezra wasn’t allowing her to eat sometimes, that she was like a zombie. So we got plane tickets and went out to Santa Monica and found a location and tried to talk to Tokata.

‘Ezra was actively interfering with me talking to Tokata and during that time she did have a mark above her eye and had some strange story about it. She is very, very thin.

‘And then she starred rambling about the KKK, pedophiles and medicine. We tried to get the police to come to talk to her and also to serve the orders requesting her to be evaluated.’

Sara accused Miller of being a danger not only to her daughter, but other young women.

‘We feel that Ezra keeps being allowed to hurt people, has no accountability. We are concerned for our daughter’s safety as his behavior keeps escalating. And that our daughter is there while the behavior is escalating,’ she said.

‘It is clear from more people we talk to that Ezra is targeting vulnerable young women. It seems that the pattern is to move on to the next one, but some of these women keep coming back, even though they have been at least emotionally abused.’

Of their fight for Tokata, she added: ‘She is going to need to heal. It’s going to take some time.’
