Jonathan Majors intervened in a brawl between high school students that erupted at a West Hollywood In-N-Out Burger.
The 34-year-old star of Creed III is currently facing misdemeanor charges for harassment and assault following his arrest in New York on March 25. He is accused of assaulting his former girlfriend, Grace Jabbari.
While dining at the In-N-Out Burger on Sunset Boulevard in California, Majors witnessed two girls engaging in a physical altercation on a Monday. Without any personal connection to the high school students, he stepped in to de-escalate the situation.
In a video captured after the incident and shared with TMZ, he clarified, “I didn’t know them.” When asked why he intervened, he responded, “Of course,” expressing his concern for preventing anyone from getting injured. He also expressed his hope that the girls remained unharmed.
Imparting some advice to the two high school girls involved in the altercation, he added, “Stay calm.”
Memes have started floating as soon as the video went viral, claiming that the situation might be staged to improve Majors’ image.
Following the receipt of a new court date for his harassment and assault trial in New York City, Jonathan Majors was seen in Los Angeles, taking a cheerful stroll.
The 34-year-old native of Lompoc, California, was spotted walking along Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood on Thursday. Although he was not accompanied by his girlfriend Meagan Good, with whom he has been in a relationship since May 2022, he appeared to be in high spirits and even flashed a peace sign to photographers.
Majors was casually dressed in a teal t-shirt paired with a red and grey flannel shirt. He carried a canned beverage and sported a black baseball cap from the Paris theater Crazy Horse, complemented by black sunglasses. A blue tote bag hung across his torso.
Earlier this year, Majors was taken into custody after the police responded to a 911 call from a 30-year-old woman who alleged that Majors had assaulted her. Responding authorities noted that she had suffered minor injuries. However, Majors was released by the police later that day, and his attorney, Priya Chaudhry, vehemently denied any wrongdoing on his part. She asserted that Majors had called 911 out of concern for her mental health and claimed that she had assaulted him.
Majors’ new trial date has yet to be scheduled, and he continues to deny any wrongdoing. Originally, Jabbari had told the police that Majors had hit and strangled her, but the strangulation charges have since been dropped, leaving him charged with causing harm to her arm. Majors’ legal team claimed that Jabbari had admitted to being the aggressor in text messages and that she had been seen at nightclubs socializing with friends after the alleged attack.
In June, Majors filed his own domestic violence claim against Jabbari, alleging that he had been slapped and scratched by her during a violent episode.
In the wake of the charges against him being dropped, Majors was released by his management and PR firms, despite his rising star in the industry. He has been seen attending court appearances alongside his new girlfriend, actress Meagan Good.
Following the incident, Jabbari texted Majors to offer an apology. Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, stated after a recent hearing that he had endured months of unjust treatment and had his life, career, and reputation torn apart. Despite this, Majors remains steadfast in his quest to clear his name from this distressing ordeal.
