In March of this year, Jonathan Majors was arrested in New York after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. Within days, Majors’ lawyers released a statement from his girlfriend, a statement which his lawyers claimed would exonerate him but instead made him look even worse, like a man who brutalized his partner to the point where she lost consciousness. She was so clearly terrified of Majors, it still sends a shiver down my spine. Then in June, Rolling Stone released their investigative report on Majors’ history, and long story short, he’s a serial abuser and he’s spent much of his adult life terrorizing people, mostly women.
Well, on Tuesday, The Messenger reported that Majors’ victim, Grace Jabbari, would soon be arrested on an assault charge. The Messenger’s source, they claimed, is the NYPD’s Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Public Information, and this whole thing stems from Majors’ claim that Jabbari hit him or slapped him too, which is why he beat her so severely that she lost consciousness and needed medical treatment. The Messenger’s report was curious, made even more so when Variety dropped this big exclusive:
Prosecutors in the Jonathan Majors case have revealed a previously unreported incident involving London police, which they believe is relevant to their domestic violence allegations. Majors was arrested on March 25 in Manhattan and is accused of assault and aggravated harassment following an alleged domestic dispute with his then-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.
In a new, 115-page filing obtained by Variety, prosecutors say they are attempting to get a copy of a London Metropolitan Police report from September 2022. While it is unclear what that report contains, the filing references medical care obtained by Jabbari at that time. Jabbari is a citizen of the U.K., and Majors was in London during that period, filming season two of the Disney+ Marvel series “Loki.”
The lengthy filing from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is in response to the actor’s motion to dismiss the case. It does not entirely lay out the D.A.’s case, though it is intended to provide enough detail to move the case toward trial. Variety previously reported that additional alleged abuse victims of Majors are cooperating with the D.A.’s office
The filing also alleges that Majors’ legal team has leaked and misrepresented court evidence, as well as attempted to have police create a wanted poster with Jabbari’s photo. It also dismisses the idea that the D.A. has any plans to prosecute Jabbari for domestic violence alleged by Majors in a counter-claim, contradicting recent media reports that claimed such an action was imminent.
The document also offers new details on the events that led to Majors’ arrest. On March 25, he and Jabbari were taking a private car service from a Brooklyn party to their Chelsea apartment, according to the filing. Jabbari, who worked as a movement coach alongside Majors on Disney’s Marvel tentpole “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” saw a text message on Majors’ phone that read, “Wish I was kissing you right now.” She allegedly took the phone out of his hands to see who sent the message. Majors then “began grabbing the right side of Ms. Jabbari’s body and prying Ms. Jabbari’s right middle finger off the phone, causing bruising, swelling, and substantial pain.” The filing continues that Majors “then grabbed Ms. Jabbari’s arm and right hand and proceeded to twist Ms. Jabbari’s forearm, causing substantial pain to her finger and arm. The defendant then struck Ms. Jabbari’s right ear, causing a laceration to the back of her ear and substantial pain.”
After he retrieved his phone, Majors exited the vehicle and Jabbari attempted to follow the actor. That’s when “the defendant grabbed her, picked her up, and threw her back inside … [and] sustained substantial pain, including a fractured finger, bruising about her body, a laceration behind her right ear, and a bump on her head,” according to the filing.
“The filing also alleges that Majors’ legal team has leaked and misrepresented court evidence, as well as attempted to have police create a wanted poster with Jabbari’s photo.” Jesus Christ. I mean, we knew that Majors’ lawyers were trying to pull “a Johnny Depp special” and blame everything on the battered woman, but holy f–k, they were trying to convince the NYPD to create a “Wanted” poster too?? “It also dismisses the idea that the D.A. has any plans to prosecute Jabbari for domestic violence alleged by Majors in a counter-claim, contradicting recent media reports that claimed such an action was imminent.” Makes it sound like The Messenger’s source was Majors and his lawyers, not the NYPD. The details about the assault are extremely gruesome, and I would absolutely believe that Majors also attacked her while they were in London too. Also: Majors is due in court in NYC today, Wednesday, for a pre-trial hearing.
