Jonathan Majors is charged with assault and defamation in a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend

Jonathan Majors is charged with assault and defamation in a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend

Ms. Jabbari met Mr. Majors on the set of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” in London. She lived with him first and then in New York, but their relationship quickly deteriorated and he routinely yelled at her and threatened to harm herself when she tried to leave or reveal the extent of his bad behavior, the lawsuit said.

In September 2022, in London, according to the lawsuit, he threw her on the hood of her car, put her “in a headlock and placed his hand over her mouth to prevent anyone from hearing her screams for help.” When he returned to their home, he put his hands around her neck and threatened to kill her, the lawsuit said. He then slammed her head into the marble floor, the lawsuit continued, “while suffocating her until she felt like she could no longer breathe.” The altercation left her suffering from “brain fog” and “constant ringing headaches.” According to the documents.

Earlier that year, in Los Angeles, he threw her into the bathroom, the suit said, “causing her to hit her head against the wall.” She lived in “constant fear” of Mr. Majors, the suit said.

Since his arrest, Mr. Majors' once high-flying career has collapsed: Marvel dropped him hours after his conviction, and all of his upcoming films have been postponed. In an interview with ABC in January, he asserted that he had “never hit a woman.”

His comments were intended to damage Ms. Al-Jabbari's reputation and career, and prompted people to “attack, harass, intimidate, and bully” her, including by sending her death threats, the lawsuit said.

The lawsuit also accused Mr. Majors of “malicious prosecution” over his attempt to file a counter-complaint against Ms. Al-Jabbari last summer. Ms. Al-Jabbari turned herself in to the police, but the Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined to pursue the case, saying it lacked merit. What happened was “a tactic of attack that is the best defence, used by Majors to harass and intimidate his victim,” the lawsuit states.
