Actor Jonathan Majors reportedly dropped by manager, publicist after domestic violence charges

The North Texas-sprung 'Creed III' and Marvel Cinematic Universe star was arrested last month over an alleged domestic dispute with a 30-year-old woman.

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. — Jonathan Majors, an actor who recently starred in "Creed III" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania," has been dropped from his talent manager Entertainment 360, Deadline reported.

The Lede Company, Majors' former public relations manager, has also dropped him after he received domestic violence charges last month, Variety confirmed.

Majors was arrested March 25 in New York City and was accused of allegedly strangling, assaulting and harassing a woman.

A statement released by the New York Police Department details that police were called at about 11:14 a.m. Saturday to an apartment near West 22nd Street and Eighth Avenue, where they determined Majors and a 30-year-old woman were involved in a domestic dispute.

"The victim informed police she was assaulted," the statement reads. 

Officers arrested Majors without incident, the statement added. 

The statement detailed that the woman had sustained minor injuries to her head and neck and was taken to a local hospital in stable condition. 

Majors has been charged with strangulation, assault and harassment. 

A representative for Majors told The Hollywood Reporter that, "He has done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”

On Sunday, an attorney for Majors, Priya Chaudhry, came out more forcefully, saying Majors “is provably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows" and blamed the incident on the woman having “an emotional crisis.”

Chaudhry said there was evidence clearing Majors, including “video footage from the vehicle where this episode took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations.”

Majors was arraigned Sunday on a complaint involving misdemeanor charges for assault and aggravated harassment, the Manhattan district attorney's office said. A judge ordered Majors released on his own recognizance on Saturday night with a limited order of protection. He was scheduled to appear in court on May 8.

Majors grew up in the Dallas area and graduated from Duncanville High School.

Along with the recently released "Creed III" and Ant-Man films, the 33-year-old also starred on the TV show "Lovecraft Country" and made his first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the "Loki" TV series.
