Jonathan Majors

The trial of Jonathan Majors, facing charges of assault and aggravated harassment in an alleged domestic violence incident, continued on Tuesday with testimony from his accuser, ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. An emotional Jabbari presented a timeline of their relationship up to the point of the March 25 incident, elaborating on the emotional abuse and manipulation referenced in the prosecution’s opening arguments. The pair met on the set of Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania in August 2021, while Jabbari was working as a movement coach and Majors starred as the villain Kang the Conqueror.

After their first date, they rarely spent time apart, Jabbari said (via Variety): “He was really kind and loving. He told me he loved me very early on, which was overwhelming, but I loved it. And I loved him. He wrote me poetry. I felt very loved and cared for and seen.”

“I felt I was existing in his world,” Jabbari admitted. “Emotionally and physically, all these ways. I didn’t feel my autonomy. I had low self-esteem, I lost weight, I felt unconfident. I felt really dependent on him. He was the only one who knew what went on. I found it hard to [see my family and friends]. I felt I was lying to them.”
