Last week, Jonathan Majors filed a domestic violence complaint with the NYPD against his ex-girlfriend and domestic violence accuser, per Insider. The move comes weeks ahead of his trial start in August.
Majors faces assault and harassment charges from the March incident involving Grace Jabbari. In his police report, the 33-year-old claims Jabbari attacked him numerous times in the past–though none of the incidents were formally reported.
Joanthan’s complaint notes a separate “verbal dispute in London that became physical,” according to Insider.
Lawyer Says Majors Is “Probably The Victim” As Actor Files His Own Domestic Violence Complaint
Meanwhile, his lawyer claims two NYPD precincts, Chinatown and Manhattan’s 10th in Chelsea, found enough evidence to establish a “probable cause” to arrest Jabbari.
“Within hours of viewing the evidence, and conducting their own thorough investigation, the NYPD found probable cause to arrest Grace Jabbari for assaulting Jonathan Majors,” Priya Chaudhry told Newsweek.
However, at this time, police have not arrested her based on Jonathan’s formal complaint, Daily Mail reports. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office opted not to prosecute Jabbari. A formal request for her to submit to questioning at the Chinatown precinct was canceled, according to Chaudhry.
While speaking to NYPD, the actor told officers that Jabbari was “drunk and hysterical” on the night in question, March 25. He claimed she attacked him on a street corner in Chinatown, scratching and slapping his face with enough force to cause pain.
The “Creed III” actor’s attorney told Newsweek that the actor was “probably the victim here.”

Majors Appears In Court With New Girlfriend Meagan Good As Actor Prepares To Take Case To Trial
Last week, The Shade Room reported that Majors’ domestic violence case would go to trial. His new girlfriend, Meagan Good, was by his side as the ruling came down.
Judge Rachel S. Pauley set a trial date of August 3 during last Tuesday’s (June 20) hearing. She also ordered Majors to continue to abide by the court’s restraining order for the alleged victim in the case.
The Shade Room reported in March that police Majors arrested and charged Majors with several misdemeanor domestic assault, strangulation, and harassment charges. Joanthan’s lawyers will now argue against just assault and harassment charges at trial.
As reported, while speaking to police, Jabbari told police he hit her in the ear and twisted her right forearm and middle finger.
