There May Be More Alleged Abuse Victims of Jonathan Majors

Jonathan Majors is facing a court date next month regarding a charge of striking his girlfriend last month. The Creed III actor was arrested in New York City on assault and harassment charges. That court date may be the least of his worries according to recent reports.

According to Variety, there are several more women who have come forward with similar accusations against the man whose star was steadily rising until this alleged incident. The upcoming court appearance slated for May 8 may just be the start of bigger legal problems for Majors.

Reportedly, sources close to the matter have expressed to the media outlet that there have been multiple alleged abuse victims of the Yale University graduate. Those alleged victims have been cooperating with prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office in New York. This news comes amid the recent revelation that the management team and publicists for Majors cut ties with him recently.

Although the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star and his attorneys assert his innocence, he has been dropped by Entertainment 360 just weeks after his PR firm the Lede Company removed him from their roster, Deadline reported. The Valentino fashion house stated that they “mutually agreed” Majors would no longer be going to the Met Gala as one of their guests.

“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,” said Majors’ attorney Priya Chaudhry in a written statement.

The once-emerging actor has also removed himself from the board of the Gotham Film and Media Institute and his work with the Sidney Poitier Initiative. On Wednesday afternoon, executive director Jeffrey Sharp relayed a note to the Gotham board telling them of the voluntary removal.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that the United States Army removed ads that featured Majors during the NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournament last month after reports of the arrest surfaced. On top of that, several projects that he was involved him are up in the air.

Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers have cut Majors from the ad campaign that was slated to begin on Friday. The studio behind the planned 48 Hours in Vegas project that is based on former NBA champion, Dennis Rodman is watching to see what happens before making a decision on whether to proceed with Majors as the intended lead in the film.

The same thing with Spike Lee’s “Da Understudy” which Majors is supposed to star and produce with Will Smith.

“I think the truth is everyone is waiting to see what Marvel will do,” says an industry insider familiar with the situation. “It doesn’t mean everyone will do the same thing, but that’s what people are looking to.”
