Previous Multiple Charges
Due to their two arrests in Hawaii in a single month, Miller has recently been the focus of debates and legal concerns. Both disorderly behavior and harassment led to the first arrest, while the second-degree assault was the reason for the second. Later, the harassment accusation was dropped. In addition, Miller is charged with harassing the third lady in her Berlin home and choking a woman in a pub.
Miller expressed regret for their earlier erratic behavior and announced that they had started receiving mental health therapy in August. Miller had previously stated in a statement,
“Having just gone through a moment of severe distress, I now recognize that I am suffering from complicated mental health difficulties and have started continuing therapy.” “I want to apologize to everyone that my previous actions may have shocked or disturbed me. I’m determined to put in the effort required to return to a safe, secure, and productive stage of my life.
