The headlining assault case against actor Jonathan Majors is getting spicy.
His accuser and ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, is now being charged with assault—seven months after Majors’ arrest, the Messenger reports. According to the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Public Information (DCPI) for the New York Police Department, Jabbari will be issued a desk appearance ticket, a document provided by police that requires a suspect to appear in court.
The movement coach is expected to report voluntarily to NYPD’s 10th precinct in the Chelsea neighborhood after the actor filed a counter-complaint against her in June 2023.
Majors’ March 2023 arrest shocked fans after he was accused of hitting his ex “in the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear.”
In a complaint, Jabbari claimed the Creed III star allegedly grabbed her hand “causing swelling, bruising, and substantial pain to her finger” and put his hand on her neck, giving her bruises and pain. Majors’ lawyer, Priya Chaudhry, denies all allegations against her client and says Majors met with NYPD that night to give an account of what happened. “From the beginning, we have said Jonathan Majors is innocent and provably the victim here,” Chaudhry said.
“Mr. Majors met with the NYPD to present them with evidence of what really happened on that night.”
Since the incident, Majors has been dropped from his management and PR firm. According to the Daily Mail, via text message, Jabbari admitted that she was the aggressor toward the actor.
The defense attorney presented screenshots of this conversation with Jabbari allegedly saying, “Please let me know when you got this. They assured me that you won’t be charged,” she reportedly wrote.
“They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me and they knew we had a fight.”
Shortly after the alleged attack, Jabbari was seen allegedly partying and drinking with friends at a nightclub.
Majors’ next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 25.
