Jonathan Majors, best known for Marvel’s Kong the Conqueror, was arrested in March for assaulting his ex-girlfriend
Jonathan Majors, best known for his work on Marvel’s Kong the Conqueror, will go on trial later this year on domestic violence charges. The actor was arrested on March 25 on charges of assault, strangulation and harassment, shortly after Creed 3 hit theaters where he starred alongside Michael B. Jordan.
According to Deadline, Major reported to Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday (6/29) to receive a date for his trial, which begins on August 3.
The victim, who was the artist’s girlfriend at the time, told the police that Major fought with her and started attacking her. He would have visible injuries at the time, such as a wound behind his ear, redness, and a scar on his face.
The actor’s defense alleges that his ex-girlfriend is lying: “We have provided the district attorney with irrefutable evidence that the woman is lying, including video evidence that shows nothing happened, especially where she claimed. We did this with the prosecutor’s explicit promise that they would not “fix” the case and change it, because we proved the woman was lying.”
