Spread MCU News

Jonathan Majors, known for his roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been sentenced to one year of counseling following his conviction in a domestic assault case. The court’s decision, delivered in lower Manhattan, allows Majors to avoid prison time, which could have amounted to a year behind bars. Instead, he is mandated to complete a domestic abuse program in Los Angeles, where he currently resides. The program requires his attendance for 52 weeks and may include the option to transition to virtual sessions. Furthermore, Majors is obliged to continue with mental health therapy that he had already begun, providing the court with updates on his progress. Additionally, the judge upheld a permanent order of protection, instructing Majors to cease all contact with his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, the victim in this case.

The conviction stems from two misdemeanor counts of harassment and assault against Jabbari, which occurred just prior to Christmas the previous year. Despite the guilty verdict, Majors’ legal team issued a statement emphasizing their client’s assertion of innocence, particularly noting that the jury did not find him responsible for intentionally causing injury. However, the jury did conclude that Majors’ actions were reckless during the incident. The statement also expressed gratitude for the support Majors has received and his intention to continue seeking to clear his name fully.

In the wake of the verdict, Majors has experienced significant repercussions in his professional life. He was removed from his role as Kang the Conqueror in the expansive MCU, a part that promised to be significant in future installments. Disney has relinquished the rights to a film project ‘Magazine Dreams,’ in which Majors was set to star, opening the opportunity for new distribution. His management team has severed ties with him, and he has been dismissed from several high-profile projects, including an Otis Redding biopic. Majors addressed the situation in a candid interview, reflecting on his personal experiences with assault and maintaining his stance that he has never physically abused a partner. During the sentencing phase, Grace Jabbari provided a potent statement, expressing doubt about Majors’ potential for change and concern for future safety, emphasizing the lasting impact the assault has had on her life.
