Jonathan Majors Found Guilty of Assault
The verdict in the much-anticipated case against actor Jonathan Majors has finally been announced.
Majors was found guilty of assault and harassment of his former girlfriend.
The jury delivered the verdict on Monday, convicted Majors of third-degree assault and second-degree harassment, both misdemeanor crimes.
The fallout for Majors was immediate, as Marvel announced that it was dropping him from its roster of stars.
Majors played Victor Timely in the TV series, “Loki,” having made five appearances in the series since 2021.
He also starred in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” as Kang the Conquerer. There was not have been a feature movie released for that character in 2026, “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,” but Majors will no longer be a part of that movie, according to recent reports.
Majors also had a film shelved, “Magazine Dreams,” a bodybuilding movie that was raved about during the recent Sundance Film Festival. The distribution label, Searchlight Pictures, is part of the Disney family, and no release date has been posted for the movie.
According to the filing, Majors had harassed and assaulted his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, even threatening suicide if she had come forward with the allegations.
Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who is also prosecuting Donald Trump, released a statement after the verdict was announced, stating, "The evidence presented throughout this trial illustrated a cycle of psychological and emotional abuse, and escalating patterns of coercion far too common across the many intimate partner violence cases we see each and every day.”
Even with the guilty verdict announced, Majors’ attorney took a small victory lap, claiming the jury did not believe Jabbari and he never intentionally meant to harm her.
Attorney Priya Chaudhry added, "Mr. Majors is grateful to God, his family, his friends, and his fans for their love and support during these harrowing eight months. Mr. Majors still has faith in the process and looks forward to fully clearing his name.”
Majors’ attorney actually claimed that he was the victim, citing scratches he had received during an altercation between the two of them, some of which was caught on video surveillance.
Up until this case, Majors was a rising star in Hollywood, most recently with his performance as Damian Anderson in “Creed III.” Now, however, it would appear that his career is over.
