Actor Jonathan Majors accused of physical abuse

 February 10, 2024

Actor Jonathan Majors is facing multiple physical abuse allegations. 

The allegations are detailed in a new report from the New York Times. 

The report is titled, Jonathan Majors Had a History of Abuse in Relationships, Women Say. 

This report comes after Majors, in December 2023, was found guilty of assaulting and harassing his girlfriend. Majors, however, has maintained his innocence.

The latest

According to the Times, multiple women have now accused Majors of having abused them.

Per the outlet:

[I]n pretrial statements to the prosecution in that assault case and, separately, in interviews with The New York Times, another former girlfriend, Emma Duncan, accused him of emotionally and physically abusing her — choking her, throwing her around and bruising her. A third, Maura Hooper, also said that he had emotionally abused her.

Duncan and Hooper, to the Times, described Majors as "a controlling, threatening figure who isolated them from friends and career pursuits."

The allegations, however, do not stop there.

The Times, which says that it interviewed 20 people for its report, found that "Majors had a history of volatility on the set of the HBO series Lovecraft Country that included confrontations with female co-workers that led them to complain to the network."

Majors responds

The actor, through his attorney, did provide a statement to the Times in which he denied the allegations contained in the outlet's report - although he did admit that there might be some truth to some of the claims.

Priya Chaudhry, the lawyer, said that the relationships that Majors had with Duncan and Hooper were "toxic" and that "hurtful things" were said.

Regarding the allegations from Duncan, Chaudhry said "While their relationship was mutually emotionally volatile, he did not physically abuse her."

The guilty verdict

In December, after the verdict, NPR reported:

Actor Jonathan Majors, once a promising and fast-rising Hollywood star, was found guilty on two out of four charges in a domestic violence criminal case in New York on Monday afternoon. He was found guilty on two counts — assault in the third degree and harassment in the second degree — relating to an incident with his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari. Each of the charges in which he was found guilty is considered a misdemeanor in New York.

The allegations have virtually ended Majors' acting career. The outlet reported, "NPR confirmed . . . that Marvel and Disney, which had been priming audiences to expect a major upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film starring Majors, has dropped the actor."
