So here’s the scoop, folks. Remember that whole controversy surrounding actor Jonathan Majors and the assault accusation made against him? Well, hold onto your hats because there’s a twist in the tale. Brace yourselves, because the person who accused Majors, none other than Grace Jabbari, has been arrested in the big apple for an alleged assault involving the star of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”.
According to an NYPD spokesperson who spilled the beans to ET, Jabbari, a 30-year-old woman, got nabbed for charges of misdemeanor assault with intent to cause physical injury and criminal mischief with intent to damage property. Word on the street is that Jabbari turned herself into the 10th Precinct cops on Wednesday evening for supposedly striking Majors, who is 34 years old, earlier this year. TMZ broke the news, stating that the altercation, which apparently went down between the ex-flames and former lovebirds, involved Jabbari scratching Majors and smacking him with an open hand, leaving a nasty cut on his cheek. They even claimed that she tore the buttons off his coat and damaged his front pocket. Ouch!
Flashback to the time when Jabbari first accused Majors of assaulting her just before he got nabbed in March. According to her filing, Majors allegedly hit her with “an open hand” on her face, causing substantial pain and even resulting in a laceration behind her ear. Yikes!
Jabbari’s lawyer, Ross Kramer, chimed in on the situation and confirmed her surrender to the police. In a statement to The Daily Beast, Kramer expressed disappointment at how survivors are sometimes treated like criminals, but praised Jabbari’s strength throughout the whole ordeal. You go, girl!
As if things weren’t already juicy enough, earlier this year, Majors was arraigned on multiple charges related to the alleged assault, which included three counts of assault in the third degree, one count of aggravated harassment in the second degree, three counts of attempted assault in the third degree, and one count of harassment in the second degree. The plot thickens!
But wait, there’s more! Jabbari’s arrest comes hot on the heels of a judge ruling that Majors will have to stand trial in the misdemeanor assault case. Talk about a nail-biting turn of events. Majors had to attend the hearing via Zoom, probably because he was out of state at the time. His legal team tried to get the case dismissed, but alas, their efforts were in vain. They then requested that certain trial details be shielded from the public eye due to the “high profile of the case,” and surprisingly, the prosecutors didn’t oppose this motion. Next, please!
Mark your calendars, folks, because the trial is scheduled to commence on November 29. That’s when things will really start heating up in the courtroom. If Majors is found guilty, he could face up to a year in the slammer. Dang, that’s no joke!
But let’s not forget about Majors’ response to all this chaos. He and his attorney, Priya Chaudhry, have been adamant in denying every single allegation made against him. They confidently stated to ET that “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.” You go, Jonathan!
And there you have it, folks. The whirlwind of events in this crazy tale involving Jonathan Majors and his accuser Grace Jabbari seems far from over. Buckle up because this story is just getting started!
