Marvel Star Jonathan Majors Convicted of Assaulting Girlfriend

Following a trial in New York, US actor Jonathan Majors, best known for portraying Kang in the Marvel universe, was found guilty on Monday of beating his ex-girlfriend.

A six-person jury found the 34-year-old movie actor guilty on one count of assault and one count of harassment.

On the other hand, he was found not guilty of aggravated harassment and another assault allegation.

After a two-week trial in Manhattan state court, the verdict was rendered.

In March, Majors was taken into custody in New York City on charges of assaulting his then-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, in the backseat of a private car.

The British choreographer Jabbari, who first worked with Majors on the set of Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” testified that she saw a text message from a different lady that said, “Wish I were kissing you right now,” and she immediately snatched his phone.

She claimed that she felt “a hard blow” across her skull that caused bruising, swelling, and excruciating agony while Majors tried to get his phone.

Majors’ lawyers, however, fired back at Jabbari, arguing that she was the “aggressor”.

They claimed that she started a “fantasy” to bring down the actor, who “was only trying to regain his phone and get away safely,” because she became envious after receiving a text message that another woman had sent on his phone.

The actor now faces up to a year in jail; his sentencing date is set for February 6, 2024. The actor was asked to stand and face the jurors during the reading of the judgment.

After participating in the movie “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” Majors gained notoriety in 2019.

The actor costarred with the late Chadwick Boseman in the Netflix original film “Da 5 Bloods” in 2020.

Majors also acted in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and alongside Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed III’.
