After a jury in New York found actor Jonathan Majors guilty of reckless assault in the third degree and a further charge of harassment, two more women have accused him of abuse.
Majors is set to be sentenced on April 8th. He was previously set to find out his fate on February 6th, but it was delayed due to “a slew of post-conviction motions” filed by the lawyers representing Majors. The Creed star could face up to a year in prison.
Now, the New York Times, has published a report which alleges Major of committing physical and emotional abuse on Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper, who previously had overlapping relationships with the actor.
Duncan alleges that Majors was physically violent on numerous occasions between 2015 and 2019. In 2016, she claims that Majors choked her and “threw her body across the room”, stating he was “going to make sure you can’t have children”. The actor denies the accusations.
Meanwhile, Hooper, who was in a relationship with Majors from 2013 to 2015, spoke of his alleged controlling behaviour, claiming she “was not allowed to speak to anyone about their relationship”.
In response, Majors’ attorney Priya Chaudhry has said the actor was “young and insecure” and “is embarrassed by some of his jealous behaviour”.
The two women also allege that Majors regularly threatened to kill himself during their respective relationships with the actor.
After their relationship broke down, Hooper alleges that Majors called her a “whore” on the phone and said, “I hope you die; kill yourself”. He also allegedly told her: “I’m going to rip you out of my heart the way they ripped our baby out of you.”
The report interviewed 20 other people who claimed that Majors has a “history of volatility” and allege that he frequently confronted female colleagues while working on the HBO series Lovecraft Country.
Jessica Pollini, Lisa Zugschwerdt, and a third female member of the Lovecraft Country team reported Majors over his behaviour, which led to the actor apologising for his actions.
