Jonathan Majors Maintains Innocence After More Women Come Forward With Abuse Allegations

The ‘Creed III’ actor’s attorney insists that the 33-year-old ‘has not abused anyone’ after multiple alleged abuse victims of Majors are cooperating with the Manhattan district attorney’s office following his March arrest.

AceShowbiz -The future of Jonathan Majors‘ career looks murky. Following his March arrest for alleged assault, more women have come forward with abuse allegations against the actor, who just rose to fame with his roles in “Creed III” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania“.

On Wednesday, April 19, Variety reported that multiple alleged abuse victims of the 33-year-old are cooperating with the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The site notes that “the prospect of more women waiting in the wings would mark a dramatic turn in the case.”

The D.A. has not released an official statement on the newest allegations against Majors, but his attorney is adamant that he’s not guilty. “Jonathan Majors is innocent and has not abused anyone. We have provided irrefutable evidence to the District Attorney that the charges are false. We are confident that he will be fully exonerated,” Majors’ attorney said in a statement following the new report.

Majors was taken into custody on March 25 after an alleged domestic dispute with his girlfriend. He’s accused of slapping his partner before putting his hands around her neck, ultimately resulting in visible injuries. Among them were a “laceration behind her ear, redness, and marks to her face.”

The Emmy-nominated actor was subsequently charged with two counts of assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment and attempted assault. He was released on his own recognizance on the same day with a limited order of protection.

His attorney later revealed the text messages that Majors’ girlfriend sent to him following the altercation to prove his innocence. In the texts, she said, “Please let me know you’re okay when you get this. They assured me that you won’t be charged. They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me and they knew we had a fight. I’m so angry that they did. And I’m sorry you’re in this position. Will make sure nothing happens about this. I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone.”

Ahead of his first court appearance in May, Majors has been dropped by his former public relations manager the Lede Company and talent manager Management 360. As of now, WME is still representing Majors.

He has also been dropped from a slew of projects, including Protagonist Pictures’ adaptation of “The Man in My Basement“, an Otis Redding biopic as well as an ad campaign for the MLB’s Texas Rangers baseball team.

There’s also report that Marvel may replace the “Lovecraft Country” star with Damson Idris as Kang the Conqueror in future MCU films, which likely will cause a domino effect to his career. “I think the truth is everyone is waiting to see what Marvel will do,” says an industry insider familiar with the situation. “It doesn’t mean everyone will do the same thing, but that’s what people are looking to.”
