We are frequently caught off guard by the unexpected turns that life throws at us. In one such case, fans have been shocked and alarmed by Jonathan Majors’ recently released disturbing text messages as well as audio from his ongoing assault trial. The actor is best known for his critically acclaimed role as the MCU’s Kang the Conqueror.
Several disturbing text messages and an audio recording from the actor’s ongoing assault trial have been made public by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. These September 2022 text messages talk about an earlier incident that involved Majors allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. Moreover, the newly made public pieces of evidence include texts in which the Loki actor threatened suicide and an audio recording of a heated argument between the former couple.
Additionally, it seems that the actor discourages Jabbari from visiting the hospital following a head injury.
Jonathan Majors’ Text Messages Show Him Making Emotional Suicide Threats
Text messages (from September 2022) obtained as part of Jonathan Majors‘ ongoing domestic abuse case reportedly show the Marvel star allegedly attempting to manipulate Grace Jabbari’s subsequent response with suicide threats. Prior to that, his ex-girlfriend accused him of assaulting her in March, according to newly released evidence.
A specific text from Majors to Jabbari in September 2022 appears to show the actor fumbling to cover his legal bases after allegedly assaulting the British dancer, according to Variety’s review of messages that were submitted as evidence on December 8. Majors reportedly wrote:
“I fear you have no perspective of what could happen if you go to the hospital. They will ask you questions, and as I don’t think you actually protect us, it could lead to an investigation even if you do lie, and they suspect something.”
Jabbari supposedly texted back in response, saying:
“I will tell the doctor I bumped my head if I go. I’m going to give it one more day, but I can’t sleep and I need some stronger pain killers. That’s all: why would I tell them what really happened when it’s clear I want to be with you?”
But when Jabbari persisted in advocating for her own medical care, Majors allegedly quickly resorted to threatening suicide to get her to stop reporting the incident to the public, and particularly law enforcement. Majors is said to have sent the following message:
“Last night I considered killing myself versus coming home. I will probably [k]ill myself. It’s not really contemplating any more…I’m a monster. A horrible man. Not capable of love. I am killing myself soon. I’ve already put things in motion.”
According to The Washington Post, Majors entered a ‘not-guilty’ plea to misdemeanor charges of harassment and assault on November 29, 2023, which marked the start of the assault trial.
Jonathan Majors Angrily Declared That He is a ‘Great Man’ On Audio
Apart from the text messages, a court-released audio recording of a disagreement between Jonathan Majors and Grace Jabbari in September 2022 was also made public (per Variety). In an audio recording played during his assault trial, the former referred to himself as a “great man” and drew comparisons between himself and Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr.
Majors told Jabbari in the video that she “has to be of a certain mindset to support” him. The Jungleland actor said the following in the clip:
“I’m a great man. A great man. I am doing great things, not just for me, but for my, for my culture and the world. That is actually the position I’m in. That’s real. I’m not being a dick about it. I didn’t ask for it. I’ve worked, and that’s the situation. The woman that supports me — that I support, the work that — needs to be a great woman and make sacrifices the way that man is making for her and for them, ultimately.”
Majors also claimed in that same message that “it is just fake”, but the context of what he meant by “fake” was not provided in court. According to PEOPLE, the text messages are regarded as ‘Molineux evidence’, which is defined by the New York State Unified Court System as
“Conduct that is inextricably interwoven with the charged acts”.
Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter claims that Majors could spend up to a year in jail if he is found guilty of the misdemeanor assault and harassment charges that are currently being brought against him.
On the work front, we last saw him as Damian ‘Diamond Dame’ Anderson in Creed III, a sports drama film co-produced and directed by Michael B. Jordan.
