Two ex-girlfriends claim Jonathan Majors dealt them physical and emotional abuse

Legal trouble plagues Jonathan Majors. Two ex-girlfriends accuse the actor of physical and mental abuse, his latest failure.

LoveBScott cited Rolling Stone to describe Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper's charges. The women, who were in overlapping relationships with Majors, told The New York Times that he was physically and emotionally violent.

Hooper, who dated Majors from 2013 to 2015, said she “was not allowed to speak to anyone about their relationship.”

Majors' attorney Priya Chaudhry rejected Hooper's charges, claiming her client was “young and insecure” and “is embarrassed by some of his jealous behavior.”

Duncan repeated her accusation that Majors was physically abusive. In a July 2016 altercation, Majors reportedly strangled Duncan, “threw her body across the room” and vowed to “going to make sure you can’t have children.” Duncan's charges were refuted by Majors.

Hooper says she got pregnant a few months into her relationship with Majors. She scheduled an abortion two weeks later. LoveBScott said majors wanted earlier scheduling.

Hooper said she walked home after Majors went to a rehearsal, despite knowing she required an escort.

Hooper said Majors became mad at her in 2016 for dating someone he knew. “I’m going to rip you out of my heart the way they ripped our baby out of you,” he reportedly said Hooper.

After Hooper's accusation, Majors' attorney claimed it was “a mutually intense conversation” and the “Ant Man and the Wasp” star “regrets saying hurtful things in that moment but does not recall the specific things he said.”

Duncan says she met Majors at a Chautauqua, New York, summer acting camp. They were engaged from 2015 until 2019. Duncan said her relationship with Majors began tenderly with great gestures. By July 2016, everything went south. Duncan says Majors threatened to strangle and murder her during an altercation.

LoveBScott cited Major's attorney's denial that he threatened Dunca. It claimed that Rolling Stone's June research revealed Duncan and Hooper's Majors experiences. Over a dozen people, either friends of the woman or witnesses to their relationship, independently confirmed the abuse.

Despite Rolling Stone's first report, Duncan and Hooper declined to comment. One woman's spokesman mentioned revenge as her reason for silence.

“It was pervasively known that he was [a good actor], and that he also would terrorize the people that he had dated,” one of the dozen individuals told Rolling Stone.

The New York Times got Molineux material, including women's testimony to prosecutors.

Chaudhry filed a move to seal the materials permanently to counter the disclosure. She said the women's “unproven allegations” would create “significant concrete harm” because “the media has already demonstrated that it has a near-insatiable appetite for salacious gossip concerning Mr. Majors.”

Majors has other complainants besides Hooper and Duncan. Rolling Stone's June investigation included a third lady who could have spoken with the DA about her relationship with the musician. Her withdrawal occurred before publication.

In a recent interview with The Cut, identified as “Anna,” the lady stated she was also in an abusive relationship with Majors. Anna alleges she withdrew from Rolling Stone's June piece after receiving a threatening email from a legal assistant who stated she was under investigation by a law firm and part of a “ongoing criminal investigation.”

The woman located a phone number in the email and Googled Chaudhry, Majors' lawyer.

“It felt like a threat,” Anna told The Cut. “I stopped supporting Grace, talking to the DA, talking to journalists, everything.” (Chaudhry told The Cut she would file a criminal complaint against the sender and claimed her business was behind the odd email.)

Hooper and Duncan's claims are Majors' latest legal setback. He was found guilty of third-degree reckless assault and harassment in December. The March 2023 arrest of Major for beating his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari after she witnessed him get a loving text from another lady led to his conviction. The more severe allegations of deliberate assault and aggravated harassment were dropped against Majors.

The 34-year-old actor's sentencing was slated for Tuesday (Feb. 13), but his defense filed last-minute pleas to overturn the judgment, moving it to April 8. He faces up to a year in prison, although he is unlikely to serve.
