Jonathan Majors’ assault trial with Grace Jabbari kicked off this week where she gave accounts on his alleged “rage and aggression.”
Prosecutors gave their opening statements on Monday, Dec. 4 to recall the events that led to his alleged assault against Jabbari in New York City in March 2023. Prosecutors claimed the melee started after Majors received a text message from a woman named Cleopatra, People reports.
According to prosecutors, Jabbari, who works as a dancer, leaned over Majors’ shoulder and read the text that including a link to D’Angelo’s song “Lady,” and Cleopatra’s message saying, “Wish I was kissing you.”
On Tuesday, Jabbari took the stand and cried throughout her testimony which included claims of Majors often showing “rage and aggression” throughout their two-year relationship.
“His face kind of changes when he gets into that place,” Jabbari told the jury. “He’s a big guy so you just want to step back.”
Among the evidence presented at trial included a photo Jabbari had taken after the fight with Majors inside his apartment. Jabbari claims the “Creed III” star was throwing “anything within reaching distance,” including candles, denting a bedroom wall with an object and shattering glass on the floor.
“I took the photo because the shift in his temper was something I was aware of, and I just wanted to remember,” Jabbari said. “I knew I kept forgiving him, but I just wanted to have a bit of a memory of him.”
