Jonathan Majors, the acclaimed actor known for his roles in Marvel and HBO productions, finds himself embroiled in controversy as new allegations of abuse surface following his misdemeanor assault conviction in December. These allegations stem from a domestic violence incident involving his former girlfriend Grace Jabbari in March 2023.

The New York Times recently published a report detailing the accounts of two women who claim to have dated Majors: Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper. Duncan alleges instances of physical and emotional abuse, including frequent threats of violence and a disturbing incident where Majors purportedly threw her across a room. Hooper, on the other hand, describes experiencing emotional abuse during her relationship with the actor.

In response to these allegations, Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, acknowledged the toxicity of the relationships but denied many of the claims of physical abuse. Chaudhry admitted that Majors “did say hurtful things,” but maintained that the relationships were between “young drama students” and began with mutual intensity.

One particularly distressing incident recounted by Hooper involves a pregnancy termination. According to her, Majors dropped her off at an abortion clinic but failed to accompany her home afterward, despite initially agreeing to do so. Chaudhry described this event as a deeply sad memory for Majors and emphasized that the decision to end the pregnancy was mutually agreed upon.

In addition to the personal allegations, the Times article also sheds light on alleged incidents involving Majors’ behavior in professional settings. Several female crew members from the set of HBO’s Lovecraft Country reported feeling intimidated by Majors, prompting HBO to advise him to apologize. However, Chaudhry stated that Majors was never informed of objections to his behavior and emphasized his professionalism and method acting skills.

Despite the controversy, Majors’ sentencing in the Jabbari case was delayed to April 8. He pleaded not guilty and could potentially face jail time.
