A source, meanwhile, says that the ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’ actor had ‘frequent meltdowns’ during production on ‘The Flash’, months prior to the incident in Hawaii.
AceShowbiz –Ezra Miller is facing a career setback following their public outburst. The actor’s projects on Warner Bros. are reportedly now in limbo after they was arrested in Hawaii and accused of threatening a couple on the island last month.
Seemingly wanting to take extra caution with its projects that have Miller attached on them, Warner Bros. and DC executives held an emergency meeting immediately after news spread of the actor’s legal troubles. According to Rolling Stone’s knowledgeable source, they reached a consensus “to hit pause on any future projects involving Miller including possible appearances in the DC Extended Universe” during the March 30 meeting,
While the news of their arrest might come as a shock to everyone, there were apparently signs of Miller’s mental breakdown months before their arrest. One insider tells the site that the 29-year-old had “frequent meltdowns” during production on “The Flash” last year.
While the insider notes that there was no yelling or violent outbursts, the source describes Miller as “losing it.” The source dishes, “Ezra would get a thought in [their] head and say, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing.’ “
Miller was arrested on March 28 following a physical confrontation with patrons at a karaoke bar in South Hilo. According to Hawaii island police, the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” star became agitated and began yelling obscenities when patrons at the bar began singing karaoke.
Miller reportedly grabbed the microphone from a 23-year-old woman who was singing karaoke and also lunged at a 32-year-old man playing darts. The bar owner asked the “Justice League” star to calm down several times, but they didn’t listen.
Just a day later, Miller was slapped with a restraining order by a couple, whom they reportedly stayed with on the island. The New Jersey native was accused of threatening the husband, who bailed the star and paid the $500 bond, and his wife, saying, “I will bury you and your slut wife.”
Miller allegedly also stole some of the couple’s belongings, including “the passport of [wife] and the wallet which included SS card, driver license, bank cards, among other things of [husband.]”
A rep for Miller has not addressed both reports, while WB has not released an official statement on its decision regarding the actor’s future projects. The actor also skipped the premiere of their movie, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald“, on March 29 in London.
