"The Flash" actor Ezra Miller is at the center of new allegations claiming that a mother and her young children are staying at Miller's Vermont residence in an "unsafe" situation involving guns and marijuana, The Daily Beast reported.

The Daily Beast article relayed that Miller's home is "so rife with marijuana and unattended firearms that a 1-year-old reportedly picked up a loose bullet and put it in her mouth," the outlet detailed.

The allegations were first reported by Rolling Stone, which said it got its information from "[t]wo sources with knowledge of the situation," and said that the unnamed father of the children, who lives in Hawaii, was so concerned that he contacted Vermont police and requested a "wellness check" at the residence.

But, the article said, the mother, also unnamed, contends that the star "helped her escape from a 'violent and abusive ex,' and Miller 'helped me finally ... have a safe environment for my three very young children.'"

The mother did not deny there were weapons on the property, but said they were "stored in a part of the house that the children never go in."

"My kids are able to relax more into their healing because of the safety and nurturing Ezra has been providing for them," she said.

Detailing that the woman and her children have been staying with Miller since April and saying they met during Miller's recent stay in Hilo, Hawaii — where the actor was involved in a number of brushes with the law — Rolling Stone claimed to have seen video taken in the home in April that "appears to show at least eight assault weapons, rifles, and handguns lying around the living room, with some weapons propped up next to a pile of stuffed animals."

The article added that the "sources also alleged that there has been frequent and heavy marijuana use in front of the children, with little concern about proper ventilation." There's also allegedly "a sizable cannabis farm" located "on Miller's property," the story said.

The article also cited "text messages between the father and a number registered to a Vermont social worker, who said in a text that they had visited the house on May 16 and the kids 'looked good,'" and recounted that court documents indicate that the relationship between the parents has been fraught.

The drama is just the latest in a string of allegations, including "two sets of parents hav[ing] reportedly sought protection and restraining orders against Miller," Rolling Stone noted.

As previously reported, a non-binary 12-year-old child and their mother have claimed that the actor "menaced" them last February, lashing out at the mother before making friendly overtures toward the minor. Miller also reportedly told the mother that her child was "an elevated being, and they would be lucky to have someone like me guide them."

The actor also made the family "uncomfortable" during a number of subsequent visits, the Daily Beast relayed, on one occasion making "the child uncomfortable by hugging them and pressing their body closely against them."

In a more recent development, Miller has been accused of drugging and brainwashing 18-year-old Tokata Iron Eyes, with Tokata's parents claiming that Miller subjected their daughter to "cult-like and psychologically manipulative, controlling behavior," according to People Magazine. The actor's relationship with the teen reportedly started when Tokata was 12 years old.

Tokata posted an Instagram video disputing those allegations, though the parents insist that Miller has been monitoring and manipulating Tokata's communications.
