Jonathan Majors found himself embroiled in controversy as he faced allegations of abuse from two former girlfriends mere after mere months after a guilty verdict was handed down in a domestic violence trial.
A recent report in the New York Times, released on Thursday, presents in-depth narratives from two individuals who claim to have been romantically involved with the Marvel actor.
Emma Duncan recounted instances of both physical and emotional mistreatment, while Maura Hooper described experiencing emotional abuse.
Priya Chaudhry, a legal representative for the 34-year-old actor, characterized the relationships with both women as "toxic" and acknowledged that Majors "did say hurtful things."
However, Chaudhry refuted several allegations of physical abuse in statements obtained by PEOPLE magazine.
“These relationships were between young drama students and all began with mutual intensity,” the legal representative commented on the purported relationships, stating that Hooper and Majors were in a romantic relationship from 2013 to 2015, while his involvement with Duncan extended from 2015 to 2019.
The past relationship reportedly involved an episode where Hooper became pregnant, and, after he accompanied her to an abortion clinic, he later failed to fulfill his promise to accompany her home.
Chaudhry acclaimed, "Mr. Majors and Ms. Hooper mutually agreed that they should end the pregnancy," adding, "That deeply sad event is still a painful memory for Mr. Majors."
Throughout Majors' relationship with Duncan, which commenced during his tenure at the Yale School of Drama in 2015, he allegedly made frequent threats of violence.
Duncan informed the Times that she was engaged to Majors for the duration of their four-year relationship and recounted an episode in which the actor forcefully threw her across a room.
Chaudhry refuted the occurrence of such an incident, conceding that "many serious arguments" did take place.
In response to accusations from both women, the attorney suggested that instead of dwelling on specific instances, the focus should be on the broader context as “troubling behaviour” that Majors could provide, he “is choosing to take responsibility for his own part… focusing on himself, and addressing his lifelong depression.”
Earlier this week, the Loki star sentencing hearing in the Jabbari case was postponed until April 8. Jonathan Majors who entered a plea of not guilty, could potentially receive a sentence of up to one year in prison.
