Jonathan Majors, the US actor known for playing Kang in the Marvel universe, was on Monday found guilty of assaulting his then-girlfriend following a trial in New York.


The 34-year-old film star was convicted by a jury of six on one count of assault and one count of harassment.

He was, however, acquitted of a different assault charge and aggravated harassment.

The verdict followed a two-week trial in state court in Manhattan.


Majors was arrested in New York City in March after he allegedly assaulted Grace Jabbari, his then-girlfriend, in the backseat of a private vehicle.

Jabbari, the British choreographer who met Majors on the set of Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ testified that she grabbed his phone after seeing a text message from another woman that read, “Wish I were kissing you right now”.

She alleged that while Majors attempted to retrieve his phone, she felt “a hard blow” across her head that resulted in bruising, swelling, and substantial pain.


Majors’ lawyers, however, fired back at Jabbari, arguing that she was the “aggressor”.

They alleged that she got jealous after reading a text message on his phone sent by another woman and spread a “fantasy” to take down the actor, who “was only trying to regain his phone and get away safely”.

The actor, who was asked to stand and face the jurors as the verdict was read, now faces up to a year in jail with a sentencing date set for February 6, 2024.

Majors rose to prominence in 2019 after starring in the film ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco’.


In 2020, the movie star featured alongside the late Chadwick Boseman in ‘Da 5 Bloods’, a Netflix original.

Majors also acted in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and alongside Michael B. Jordan in ‘Creed III’.
