Ezra Miller's downfall from "Flash" superhero to super-problematic seems to have happened faster than the speed of light. But signs of the actor's troubling behavior were reportedly there all the way back in 2020 when a video surfaced of Miller choking a fan outside of a pub in Reykjavik, Iceland.

In an interview with Variety detailing Miller's mounting troubles, the woman seen being placed in a chokehold breaks her silence about the incident. According to her, the actor's behavior in that video was only the tip of the iceberg.

"I think it's just fun and games — but then it wasn't," the woman said, who asked to remain anonymous.

The incident took place on April 11, 2020, at a pub called Prikið Kaffihús. Miller became a frequent patron as they were preparing to shoot "The Flash" and "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore."

The woman approached Miller, asked about the flip-flops they were wearing, had cordial convo before the Miller challenged her to a fight.

Miller says in the video, "But just so you know, I could take you in a fight," Miller said. "You really want to fight?"

The incident is captured on video below.

Carlos Reynir, then a bartender at Kaffihús, confirmed the details of the incident and said it was not the first altercation the actor got into in the bar.

"There was always something with Ezra," he said.

An anonymous German woman, who asked to be identified simply as "Nadia," also stepped forward to say they had a two-year friendship with Miller that occasionally included consensual sex. Then things changed overnight after she invited Miller to her apartment in Berlin. After telling the actor that they couldn't smoke in the apartment, something snapped.

"That just set them off," Nadia said. "I asked them to leave about 20 times, maybe more. They started insulting me. I'm a 'transphobic piece of shit.' I'm a 'Nazi.' It became so, so stressful for me. They were going around my house, looking at everything, touching everything, spreading tobacco leaves on the floor. It felt disgusting and very intrusive."

Nadia eventually was able to get Miller out of her apartment, but their aggressive behavior continued into the morning.

Nadia said she did not feel safe as Miller continued to hurl accusations at her such as stealing their passport and money while outside her home.

"I was worried," one of Nadia's friends told Variety. "I think she was misled — she had a memory of them from when they had time in LA, and what she got [in Berlin] was really different. It sounded dangerous."

Now reports have surfaced that Miller is reportedly housing three children under the age of five on his unlicensed cannabis farm in Vermont, IndieWire reported. The mother of the children says Miller helped them escape an abusive environment but the children's father sees things differently.

All this after Miller was arrested for accosting a couple in Hawaii. Miller can be seen dancing in a karaoke bar below before the incident reportedly took place.
