Jonathan Majors’ attorney is claiming that the woman he’s accused of abusing was “uninjured” because she was spotted clubbing after the incident.
Priya Chaudhry, the lawyer for the 33-year-old actor, is proclaiming Majors’ innocence despite allegations that multiple alleged victims have come forward against him.
In addition to releasing a statement claiming that he “has not abused anyone”, the actor’s lawyer filed paperwork pointing to multiple factors that will allegedly vindicate him.
Chaudhry claims that witness testimony from his driver and surveillance footage from a nightclub directly point to the actor’s innocence, reports TMZ.
Moreover, the attorney is alleging that around 1 AM on March 25, his alleged victim actually assaulted him, not the other way around, “while she was attempting to steal his phone.”
“The driver will testify he never struck the alleged victim “in any way at any time, or even raised his voice,” TMZ reports Chaudry said.
Majors and his attorney also say the driver saw her “hitting, scratching, and attacking” Jonathan … and that Jonathan asked the driver to stop the car, so he could escape her attack … which he did.
The attorney’s alleged proof of the lie is in the form of photos of the woman out and about at a nightclub after the incident using the right hand that she claims Majors injured. She also alleges that the woman who “got drunk” that night sent 32 disturbing texts accusing the actor of infidelity and threatening suicide.
There’s LOTS more to unpack including allegations that the actor later found the woman “unconscious and half-naked” on the floor of his walk-in closet, allegations that the woman took sleeping pills, and a claim that the police “clearly coached her” to say that Majors grabbed her by the throat.

Jonathan Majors Facing New Abuse Allegations
As Majors’ management team and upcoming films sever ties with him, the case against him expands. According to Variety, a source claimed multiple alleged abuse victims of Majors spoke out to the Manhattan district attorney’s office.
Despite his attorney’s claims that the Marvel star “did nothing wrong,” that’s not the only accusation about him. After Majors’ management team reportedly dropped him and several upcoming films cut ties with him, speculation about his case has increased.
The source confirmed multiple women similarly claiming they suffered abuse from Majors inspired the entertainment world’s ongoing exodus. Neither the D.A. nor Majors’ representatives have commented on this development yet.
Majors’ lawyer Priya Chaudhry claimed that in the domestic dispute, the Creed III actor is “provably” the “victim of an altercation with a woman he knows.”
On Wednesday, she also responded to Variety’s report saying;
“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.”
The NYPD stated that a 30-year-old woman “sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was removed to an area hospital in stable condition.” Officers booked Majors into custody for “strangulation, assault, and harassment.”
On March 30, Majors’ crisis publicist (and Chaudhry’s husband) Andrew Bourke released text messages they claimed the woman sent about the incident.
“Will make sure nothing happens about this. I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone,” one of her alleged messages said.
What they presented as proof of the action star’s innocence only raised more questions, especially for those familiar with patterns of abuse. According to someone working on one of the Majors’ upcoming films, the messages “read like a bad Lifetime movie,” reports Variety.
“They basically look like the text messages of a textbook abused woman,” the insider added.
Although he starred in Marvel’s last #1 blockbuster and has already filmed the second season of Loki, the studio may be next to jump ship. The alleged victim of Majors’ arrest also worked on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Marvel Insider Jeff Sneider claimed another rising star like Snowfall’s Damson Idris could take his place.
That’s not all, however, Variety says that Majors also parted ways with Gotham Film and Media Institute and the Sidney Poitier Initiative for emerging filmmakers. Executive Director Jeffrey Sharp announced the departure on Wednesday afternoon.
WME still currently represents the embattled star. However, the agency that evaluates whether to drop clients for criminal cases and misconduct has yet to convene about Majors due to limited information. That seems likely to change after more accusations come to light.
“I’m already seeing a bunch of ‘why didn’t you do anything?!” ‘Broadway actor Tim Nicolai tweeted on March 26. “Folks, people have tried. Ultimately needed a victim to come forward. It’s both simultaneously awful to know he is still doing this and also a relief that he may never get to again. A bunch of us are close with people (and sometimes multiple people) he has directly harmed. I don’t know if they will speak on it. It is completely their decision.”
When Variety inquired about his statement, Nicolai doubled down on supporting multiple alleged victims of Majors’.
“I stand by what I wrote. And I support his victims I know of in however they choose to move forward,” he added.
Majors and his attorney are still maintaining that he’s “completely innocent.” This story is clearly still developing.
