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 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.
But that’s not the end of the legal battle. Now, the actor’s lawyer has sent evidence to the New York court where the hearing will take place in May, claiming that it shows the alleged victim ‘uninjured’ only hours after the alleged incident took place.
The victim was allegedly seen clubbing hours after the incident
People has obtained a letter that Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, has sent to the New York County Criminal Court, asking for the matter to be resolved quickly and the case to be dismissed, following the evidence they have provided to support the actor’s innocence.
According to the previous charges, Majors allegedly struck the alleged victim ‘about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear.’ He also allegedly grabbed her hand and neck, causing bruising on the neck and a broken finger.
However, hours after the incident, as it appears in the evidence provided by the actor’s attorney, the alleged victim was seen partying and socializing in a nightclub with no injuries and, as it appears, using the hand and finger that was broken. More screenshots were shared of the alleged victim using the ‘injured’ hand to get into the actor’s apartment later that evening.
The footage that was released so far is only screenshots, which you can see in detail in the ExtraTV video below:
To add to the screenshots that allegedly show the accuser partying uninjured hours after the incident with Majors, his lawyer also claims that the driver of the vehicle in which the alleged assault took place saw the entire ordeal and is ready to testify that the alleged victim was actually the abuser.
As Chaudhry’s letter suggests, the driver will testify that the accuser ‘attacked Mr. Majors in the car (and Mr. Majors did not strike or hurt her whatsoever).’
If no injuries occurred, why was the alleged victim hospitalized?
After the police were called and Jonathan Majors was arrested, the alleged victim was hospitalized with visible injuries – including the bruising and the broken finger. So, if the actor’s attorney claims that no injuries were inflicted on the victim by Majors, why was the victim hospitalized then?
The letter obtained by People explains that as well. Per the letter, after the incident, the accuser went partying and drinking in a nightclub and then ‘sent Mr. Majors angry text messages accusing him of infidelity, sent a suicide note to Mr. Majors, [and] took a bunch of sleeping pills.’
The injuries, as the letter suggests, appeared ‘eleven hours later, [when the accuser] was found alone in a locked bedroom, unconscious on the floor of a closet, with a cut behind her ear and a broken finger.’
That’s when the police were called in and arrested Majors after the alleged victim ‘informed police she was assaulted.’ Majors was taken into custody while ‘the victim sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.’
Finally, Variety reported that multiple alleged abuse victims came out to cooperate with the Manhattan D.A.’s office, claiming that the actor had abused them in the past as well. To respond, his lawyer stated:
“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.”
To conclude, we have to explicitly state that neither side of the story is official, and nothing has been confirmed in a court of law. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but both sides seem to be confident that they’ll get what they believe to be justice in the matter.
Jonathan Majors’ court hearing is set for May 8, when the situation will likely be resolved.
