The artist Jonathan Majors has defended his lack of guilt and his dream of recovering his once-soaring occupation, which collapsed after his conviction, ever since he was deemed guilty in December of beating and assaulting a lover. He maintained he had “never struck a woman” in an on-air conversation last month.
Majors was taken into custody in March after he purportedly assaulted a girlfriend. Additionally, the New York State Police has informed detectives that there is a strong reason for apprehending Majors’ accuser, according to reports published this week in the New York Post and New York Times. The charges against Majors are still pending in the criminal case, and they have the potential to ruin his professional trajectory as they represent the first apparent blotch on his spotless record. Nonetheless, others who have known Majors for the past ten years assert he has a track record of abusive behavior.
Majors is characterized by many as a complex, erratic, and occasionally aggressive man who can change from being affable to chilly in an instant. Some say they were not allowed to speak. “My only response can be that I am silenced by an NDA he had me sign,” via Rolling Stone, the outlet that poured all its might into figuring out Majors history of relationships. The accounts of those who were abused point to a sequence of claimed physical, psychological, and emotional assault that began ten years ago when Majors was a student at Yale’s David Geffen School of Drama. There, he got into physical confrontations with other students. The allegations also seem to have went on to the sets of Majors’ films and television shows, where crew members complained about his treatment of them.
Dustin A. Pusch, Jonathan Majors’ lawyer, released a statement saying, “Jonathan Majors vehemently denies Rolling Stone’s false allegations that he physically, verbally, or emotionally abused anyone, let alone any of his past romantic partners. These allegations are based entirely on hearsay because neither of the romantic partners referenced were willing to engage with Rolling Stone for the article — demonstrating their outright falsity.” Pusch also said that Majors “also denies any allegations of abuse, violence, or intimidation during his time at Yale.”
Several individuals claimed that Majors reportedly mistreated two love partners, one of whom was seriously wounded and the other psychologically. According to miscellaneous sources, “It was pervasively known that he was [a good actor], and that he also would terrorize the people that he had dated.” Nine of the foundations assert that Majors verbally and physically abused the lady he was dating, including strangling her. According to reports, the second woman described her affair with Majors as “emotional torture” to acquaintances.
Elements of the supposed assault were individually confirmed by people who are friends with the ladies or who were there when they were in liaisons with Majors. In interviews with Rolling Stone, they talked about how the women’s allegations or what they saw at the time scared them. One person who has been involved in a minimum of two of Majors’ relationships adds, “My experience in dealing with him and watching him in relationships with several women [is] really upsetting. As an outside observer, it made me uncomfortable.”
Pusch told Rolling Stone, “The allegations that Mr. Majors got physical with or physically intimidated anyone on any movie set are downright false. Everyone who has worked with Mr. Majors knows that he employs an immersive Method acting style, and while that can be misconstrued as rudeness at times, those who know Mr. Majors and work in the industry have attested to his dedication to his craft as well as his kindness
These latest accusations are being made in the context of Majors’ ongoing legal battle over her latest charges of domestic violence. A judge decided last week that the matter will proceed to trial beginning on August 3. The woman’s claims have been fiercely refuted by Majors’ legal squad, and the day following his court appearance, Majors submitted a police report against her, alleging he was a victim of the domestic conflict. According to a single source, “No one is surprised that this is coming out. It always felt like it was a matter of time because his behavior never changed. He’s kind of a bad dude, and now it’s just catching up with him.”
There was only one woman who gave her permission to be made public. Majors courted Haley Carter from the age of 13 to the age of 18, and in a late-March message, Carter characterized Majors as “sweet, kind, and gentle.” “After 20 years of knowing him, I can tell you who Jonathan is. He did not do these things,” a portion of the statement claimed. “He is exactly the opposite of what these allegations say. Jonathan is the most self-controlled, disciplined, well-mannered person I know. We all call him ‘the peacekeeper.’ He is not violent in any way.”
