Jonathan Majors has spoken out after a court rejected. dailyjugarr

The American actor, got his start at Yale School of Drama. He’s been in some big movies like “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” and “Da 5 Bloods,” and also starred in the HBO series “Lovecraft Country.” But then he got into some trouble in March 2023, when he was arrested for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. He was found guilty later that year and got dropped from future projects, including ones in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tough break for him.

So, on March 25, 2023, Majors called 911 from his place in New York, saying he found his ex not breathing. He claimed he stayed at a hotel that night. But then the cops busted him on charges of assault, strangulation, and harassment after some drama with Jabbari the night before. She ended up with minor injuries and went to the hospital. Majors got out the same day, and his rep said he didn’t do anything wrong. They were gonna clear his name. The next day, March 26, Majors had to go to court.

His lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, said the woman changed her story. Then on March 30, Chaudhry leaked some texts supposedly from Jabbari. Stuff got real when a judge gave Jabbari a temporary restraining order until May 9, 2023.

A New York judge decided on Wednesday 3 April 2024 that Jonathan Majors will still be sentenced next week on his assault and harassment conviction.

After the incident, the Army paused Majors’ recruiting ads until they figured things out. Then, his management and PR firms dropped him. He lost roles in a movie and at the Met Gala. Even Disney pulled a movie he was in from its schedule. And after he got convicted, Marvel Studios cut ties with him too. Tough times for Majors, for sure.

So, back on November 29, 2023, Majors started his trial for assault. He said not guilty. Then, on December 5, Jabbari testified against him, saying he assaulted her. A witness saw her upset but didn’t notice any injuries on her.

Then, on December 18, 2023, Majors was found guilty of reckless assault and harassment but was cleared of other charges. His sentencing was supposed to happen on February 6, 2024, but it got pushed to April 8, 2024, because his lawyers filed a bunch of post-conviction motions.

Unfortunately In April 2023, Variety spilled that more women were accusing Majors of being abusive. They were chatting with the D.A.’s office, but the D.A. stayed mum about it.

Then, in June 2023, Rolling Stone dug up some dirt. They talked about how Majors had a history of being abusive since 2013, even when he was at Yale. People said he was rough on one partner and emotionally messed up another. But Major’s lawyer brushed it off as just talk.

Then, by February 2024, the two women who accused Majors of domestic abuse were named. Tough situation all around.

March 2024, Jabbari took Majors to court. She said he’d been trash-talking her, assaulting, and battering her. She claimed it was all part of a long streak of domestic abuse starting in 2021 and lasting until 2023.

Jonathan Majors finally spoke up after his request to throw out his conviction for third-degree assault and harassment was rejected on Wednesday. He said he’s “disappointed” about it all.

His lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, told The Mirror that Jonathan’s feeling let down by the decision but he respects the process. He’s finding strength from his pals, fans, family, and even his dogs, and he’s using his art to cope. He’s looking forward to wrapping up this messy chapter and focusing on his family and his work.

Jonathan Majors’s attorney Priya Chaudhry argued saying the prosecution didn’t have enough proof in his case. She argued that their reasons for charging him were not all over the place and did not make sense, so she reckons they should toss out the charges.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, they’re saying in the motion that there’s no proof that Jonathan Majors acted recklessly during the trial. They’re saying there’s not enough evidence to prove he did anything wrong, let alone enough to show he did it on purpose.

Now, the former Creed star’s got his sentencing set for April 8 at 9:00 a.m. EST, unless his lawyer does something to push it back. If he’s found guilty, he could be looking at up to a year behind bars. Ever since this big case started, Majors got dropped from Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Co.
