As Jonathan Majors deals with the fallout of criminal domestic abuse charges, more women have added their voices to the case. Sources familiar with the situation told Variety that “multiple alleged abuse victims” came forward after the Marvel star’s arrest on March 25. They are currently cooperating with the district attorney’s office in Manhattan.

The news comes after Jonathan Majors’ publicists at The Lede Company and management team Entertainment 360 cut ties with the Creed III star earlier this week. He has also reportedly been dropped from several projects, including the film adaptation of the Walter Mosley novel, The Man in My Basement, and a marketing campaign for the Texas Rangers MLB team.

The actor’s legal trouble began after being involved in a “domestic dispute” with an unnamed woman who was taken to the hospital with “minor injuries to her head and neck.” Court documents stated that Jonathan Majors struck the woman “about the face with an open hand, causing substantial pain and a laceration behind her ear.” He also “put his hand on her neck, causing bruising and substantial pain.”

Although Jonathan Majors was charged with strangulation, assault, and harassment, his attorney Priya Chaudhry maintained his innocence at the time of his arrest, saying her team has “irrefutable evidence that the charges are false.” She also insisted that the actor “is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows,” suggesting that the alleged victim had an “emotional crisis.”

Andrew Bourke, who is serving as the actor’s crisis publicist, later released a series of text messages intending to exonerate Jonathan Majors. During the exchange, the woman wrote, “I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone.” She also stressed that police were told it was “not an attack.”

“Please let me know you’re okay when you get this. They assured me that you won’t be charged. They said they had to arrest you as protocol when they saw the injuries on me, and they knew we had a fight,” she allegedly continued. “I’m so angry that they did. And I’m sorry you’re in this position. Will make sure nothing happens. I love you.”

The text exchange, which was not independently verified, continued a few hours later, with the woman assuring Jonathan Majors that she was trying to help him. “I just want you to know that I’m doing all I can. I also said to tell the judge to know that the origin of the [911] call was to do with me collapsing and passing out and your worry as my partner due to our communication prior.”

But releasing the text messages had the opposite effect. The strange and overly apologetic tone raised questions about why the woman lost consciousness. “They basically look like the text messages of a textbook abused woman,” someone working with Jonathan Majors on an upcoming project told Variety. The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumanina alum is set to appear in court on May 8.

In recent months, Jonathan Majors has become a rising star in Hollywood with several high-profile projects in the works. As several entertainment-related companies distance themselves from the actor, Marvel Studios has remained eerily silent. The 33-year-old is still poised to play Kang in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, set for release on May 2, 2025.

The movie is scheduled to begin production early next year. Interestingly, the alleged victim in the domestic incident also worked on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. A Disney spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.
