Actor Ezra Miller’s legal troubles don’t appear to be ending any time soon. Weeks after the actor was arrested in Hawaii – two times – he has now been blamed for music robbery by two of his former collaborators. The two, who worked with Ezra in the past, have said that they intend to take the actor to court. Ezra is most popular for portraying Wally West otherwise known as The Flash in the DC Extended Universe.
Music producer Oliver Ignatius and rapper Ghais Guevara have claimed in interaction with Rolling Stone that Ezra published a piece of music they worked together on, without their permission and without giving them due credit.
Oliver said, “What Ezra did was commit an … extremely unethical and hurtful act,” Ignatius said. “They stole from artists that have fewer resources than them but maybe have art that Ezra wants… The person I thought I knew was a much gentler soul than the person that we’re seeing right now. It’s been a very concerning journey.”
Speaking about how the project fell apart partly because of Ezra’s behavioural issues and legal troubles, Oliver said, “We all had high hopes that it was going to be a project that was beautiful, that was going to be meaningful for us. But it didn’t really pan out that way. They seemed to be heading out into deep waters. They were going through a scorched earth-type fallout with their Hollywood career. They were severing many of the relationships in their life and seemed to be on a very dangerous spiral.”
Ghais added that the two intend to take Ezra to court now. Demanding that he owns the rights to the song, he said he intends to file for damages. He also said that they attempted to resolve this personally yet a meeting they had with Ezra was “nothing good nor conciliatory.”
