Jonathan Majors Avoids Jail Time In Domestic Violence Case, Gets Sentenced To A 52-Week DV Intervention Program

Jonathan Majors

Actor Jonathan Majors avoided jail time on Monday, April 8, after being sentenced to probation for assaulting his ex-girlfriend in a highly publicized case that impacted his career trajectory.

The 34-year-old star of “Creed III” faced potential incarceration following a misdemeanor assault conviction by a Manhattan jury in December.

Judge Michael Gaffey sentenced Majors to probation and mandated completion of a 52-week in-person batterer’s intervention program, along with continuing mental health therapy.

Marvel Studios promptly severed ties with Majors after the guilty verdict, rescinding his role as Kang the Conqueror, a key antagonist slated for future appearances across the Marvel cinematic universe.

The charges stemmed from a March altercation where Majors’ former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, accused him of assaulting her in a chauffeured car.

Allegations included hitting her head, twisting her arm, and fracturing her finger.

Majors asserted that Jabbari became aggressive after discovering a text message on his phone, contending he acted in self-defense to retrieve his phone and leave safely.

Despite Majors’ hope for exoneration during his two-week trial, the jury convicted him of assault and harassment violations. Attempts to overturn the conviction were unsuccessful.

Majors faces further legal woes as Jabbari filed a civil suit alleging assault, battery, defamation, and emotional distress.

The lawsuit claims a pattern of abuse throughout their relationship from 2021 to 2023.

With Marvel’s decision to part ways with Majors, speculation surrounds the fate of the Kang character in future productions, posing a significant question for the studio amid a series of recent setbacks.
