Newly revealed details from actor Jonathan Majors’ ongoing domestic violence court case in New York City are raising concerns about the impact on his career, particularly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
A 115-page court filing obtained by Variety outlines the allegations made by Majors’ ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, regarding the extent of alleged abuse she suffered. According to the filing, on March 25, 2023, Majors is accused of forcibly grabbing Jabbari’s body and prying her middle finger off her phone, causing visible bruising, swelling, and significant pain. Further allegations include Majors grabbing and twisting her arm and right hand and hitting her in the right ear, resulting in a laceration to the back of her ear and substantial pain.
After a confrontation over a phone, Majors reportedly exited a vehicle, and Jabbari attempted to follow him. During this altercation, Majors allegedly picked her up and threw her back inside, causing her to sustain injuries, including a fractured finger, bruising, a laceration behind her right ear, and a bump on her head.
Majors’ primary attorney, Priya Chaudhry, maintains her client’s innocence, citing evidence, including surveillance video, that allegedly shows Jabbari unharmed after the alleged assault. Majors has not publicly commented on the case.
Jonathan Majors currently stars in the second season of the MCU series “Loki,” streaming on Disney+. Earlier this year, he appeared in the MCU film “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and portrayed the main antagonist in “Creed III.”
Prior to these allegations, Majors had gained significant recognition in Hollywood, thanks to his performances in projects such as “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Harder They Fall,” “Lovecraft Country,” “Devotion,” and the aforementioned MCU projects. However, these allegations now cast uncertainty over his career trajectory.
