Jonathan Majors Says He’s “Relying On Faith” Following Guilty Verdict

Jonathan Majors’ descent from glory was rapid. Almost a year ago, the Creed III star was accused of domestic violence. By the end of 2023, he was found guilty of assault and harassment.

At the top of 2024, the 34-year-old broke his silence on the verdict, telling ABC News that he was “shocked and afraid” by the jury’s decision. After a recent run-in with TMZ, Majors is seemingly unfazed and is “relying on faith.”

When asked for his current thoughts now that the verdict has had time to settle in, the Lovecraft Country actor smiled and said, “God is good.” He later credited “prayer and faith” for helping him remain positive. The conversation was swiftly shut down after the interviewer touched on the more sensitive topic of his acting career. She asked about his return and while walking away, Majors responded, “That’s enough for now.”

Since the allegations of abuse surfaced, Majors was essentially blacklisted. He was first dropped by his management team. Then, Marvel severed their ties with him—and are now searching for his replacement as Kang the Conqueror. When speaking on this to ABC, he said that it felt “like the world stopped.” Adding, “It’s like you work so hard for things. And then, you know, it’s done.”

Later, he was also dropped from an unannounced Otis Redding biopic, the Dennis Rodman biopic, and his film, Magazine Dreams, has been shelved for the time-being.

After the guilty verdict was announced, Majors also mentioned his tight-knit faith and how he intends to “fully clear his name.” For now, he’s laying low with Meagan Good a.k.a. his modern-day Coretta Scott King.
