Jonathan Majors Faces Decades-Long Abuse Allegations From Former Partners & Colleagues – Allegedly Abused 2 Romantic Partners — 1 Physically, Both of Them Emotionally


It looks like Jonathan Majors has a history of  alleged abuse and toxic behavior that spans over a decade.

Rolling Stone has released a jaw-dropping report that details a decades-long list of alleged abuse and violent behavior involving Jonathan Majors.

During a three-month investigation, Rolling Stone spoke with more than 40 people who have known Majors during his time in graduate school, his Hollywood career, and his romantic relationships. Based on their stories, there was a pattern of alleged physical, mental, and emotional abuse that dates back a decade to Majors’ time at Yale’s David Geffen School of Drama. The alleged abuse spilled into the sets of his movie and television projects, causing concern from production members regarding his behavior toward the crew.

More than a dozen sources told Rolling Stone that Majors allegedly abused two romantic partners — one physically, both of them emotionally. One source said,

“It was pervasively known that he was [a good actor], and that he also would terrorize the people that he had dated.”

One person familiar with at least two of Majors’ relationships said,

“My experience in dealing with him and watching him in relationships with several women [is] really upsetting. As an outside observer, it made me uncomfortable.”

According to 9 of the sources, Majors allegedly strangled one woman he was dating, and was mentally and emotionally abusive with her. The second woman allegedly told friends that her relationship with Majors was “emotional torture.”

Among those interviewed for the article, many described Jonathan Majors as a “complicated, unpredictable, and sometimes violent man, who can switch from charming to cold in a flash.” 

Majors’ attorney, Dustin A. Pusch, denied all allegations. He said in a statement:

“Jonathan Majors vehemently denies Rolling Stone’s false allegations that he physically, verbally, or emotionally abused anyone, let alone any of his past romantic partners. These allegations are based entirely on hearsay because neither of the romantic partners referenced were willing to engage with Rolling Stone for the article—demonstrating their outright falsity.”  

According to the report, the “Creed III” actor was also “aggressive” at work. While on the set of the upcoming film Magazine Dreams, Majors allegedly pushed one person and physically intimidated another while screaming at them, which led to a complaint to the producers.

Majors’ lawyer had this to say,

“The allegations that Mr. Majors got physical with or physically intimidated anyone on any movie set are downright false. Everyone who has worked with Mr. Majors knows that he employs an immersive Method acting style, and while that can be misconstrued as rudeness at times, those who know Mr. Majors and work in the industry have attested to his dedication to his craft as well as his kindness.” 

As for his Yale classmates, they noted that Majors’ “bluntness and intensity” was part of what made him a great actor, but that it “could become too much”

One source said,

“There’s obviously hard-working intensity, and then there’s fear-based intensity. There’s this ‘Don’t step out of line with him. Just do what he says’ sort of thing. There’s an energy and a culture around him that you didn’t really cross the lines that he created.” 

Another Yale alumni says,

“His behavior was very problematic for his class. A lot of people felt in physical danger around him and certainly in mentally precarious positions because of him.” 

Jonathan Majors is currently in a legal battle with an ex-girlfriend who has accused him of assault during a late-night altercation in New York. Majors denies any wrongdoing and has recently filed his own complaint suggesting he was the victim. The case will go to trial on August 3.
