Jonathan Majors Has Been Sentenced for Assault Conviction That Ruined His Career

Following the release of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Qunatumania’ the superhero media world was shaken by allegations brought to light against Jonathan Majors, introduced in ‘Loki’ Season 1 as Victor Timely and in ‘Quantumania’ as Kang the Conqueror, the next big villain for the Multiversal Saga.

Jonathan Majors’ career has been in somewhat of a freefall ever since he was arrested in March 2023 after an alleged assault of a woman he knew and was rumored to be his girlfriend. He was laid off from several projects, his manager and PR team quit, and several commercials featuring the actor were pulled.

However, the actor maintained his innocence throughout the process, and his legal team assured him that they’d prove his undoubted innocence. First, they released text messages between Majors and the alleged victim, but that only seemed to backfire against Jonathan – at least in the public eye.

In December, the guilty verdict came and Disney fired Majors, which prompted numerous changes within the franchise. Following his departure ‘Avengers: Kang Dynasty’ is no longer being referred to as such, and according to some rumors, a replacement for Majors is being searched for as I’m typing this.

Now, a year after the charges were first brought to the attention of the law, Majors has been sentenced. On Monday, Judge Michael Gaffey sentenced Majors to conditional discharge, given the agreement between both sides that the charges didn’t merit jail time. As a first-time offender with no prior criminal record, Majors was ordered to complete a 52-week, in-person batterer’s intervention program in Los Angeles, where he resides.

Additionally, he must continue mental health therapy as per his lawyers’ recommendation. Violating these terms could result in a year of jail time. Furthermore, Majors is prohibited from contacting his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.

This likely won’t be the end of it as several weeks ago Jabbari filed yet another lawsuit against Majors, in a New York federal court, alleging assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and defamation. The defamation claim stems from comments Majors made in a ‘Good Morning America’ interview following his conviction, where he denied physically harming a woman. During the trial, Majors’ attorney repeatedly accused Jabbari of lying about her injuries from the March 2023 incident.
