  • A musician told Insider she had a relationship with Ezra Miller that included "psychological abuse."

  • The allegation is part of a larger Insider investigation into the actor's behavior.

  • The woman said they were only together for six days but describes that time as traumatic.

A young musician who said she had a relationship with actor Ezra Miller when they were in Iceland has accused them of "psychological abuse."

The allegation is part of a larger Insider investigation into the actor's behavior by reporters Melkorka Licea and Katie Warren.

Miller, 29, is known for playing The Flash in the DC Extended Universe and for their role as Credence Barebone in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." They spent about two months in Iceland after filming on the movie "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" halted in London because of COVID-19, Insider reported.

While there, sources told Insider their behavior became increasingly erratic. It also made headlines: In April 2020, a video went viral in which Miller appeared to be choking a fan. (No charges were filed by authorities and neither Miller nor their representatives have ever given a statement about the encounter.)

In addition to renting out an Airbnb in a local suburb, Miller also rented out parts of Iceland's Hótel Laugarbakki — located in the northern part of the country — to record music. That's where the actor met the young musician who spoke to Insider on condition of anonymity.

The woman, who was 18 at the time, was invited to stay with Miller at the hotel. She told Insider that she and several musicians spent the first day with Miller reciting pagan chants, smoking weed, and lounging in the hot tub, several sources recalled to Insider.

The first night, the woman said she had a threesome with Miller and another woman. She described herself to Insider as "really lost" and addicted to alcohol and drugs at the time.

After the threesome, the woman Ezra invited her to stay with them. She was at the hotel for six days in total and told Insider that this period of time eventually became "one of the most traumatic weeks of her life."

She told Insider the "Perks of Being A Wallflower" star would tell her they loved her one moment and call her "fucking disgusting" the next, describing the behavior as "psychological abuse."

The woman told Insider she had sex with Miller three times during her stay. She said that eventually Miller "became fixated on her breeding capabilities," according to the report. They "worshipped her 'perfect' womb," according to the report, and would often start "talking to it, looking at it, hugging it" while their head was on her stomach.

The musician told Insider that Miller had convinced her to go to Hollywood with them, but she eventually returned to her home in Reykjavík.

When she got home, the woman's roommate, who knew she had been with Miller and had heard rumors about them, gave her literature about cults. The roommate had begun to get worried about her friend when she stopped answering texts.

The musician told Insider she read that cult leaders often promise spiritual awakenings, isolate victims, and promise to give them material goods to manipulate them. She said after reading the documents she became "really scared" because it was "the exact same thing that I was in with Ezra."

"It was only six days, but it honestly felt way, way longer," she told Insider reporters. "I remember feeling, like, 'Wow, I don't know how I'm going to recover from this.'"
