Jonathan Majors’ month has gone from bad to worse. After being arrested on domestic violence charges in New York City last month, the Marvel actor’s talent manager, Entertainment 360, and his PR Team, Lede Company, have cut ties with the actor, according to Deadline. This is the first significant blow to Majors’ professional career following the charges.

Although neither team has commented on why Jonathan Majors was dropped from their list of clients, Deadline’s sources say that it was due to the actor’s personal behavior. Additionally, a representative from the fashion house Valentino says that they “mutually agreed” with Majors that he would not be invited to the Met Gala this year. These cord-cutting announcements come three weeks after Majors was arrested over an alleged dispute with an anonymous 30-year-old woman, though she herself has vehemently denied the claims. 

“Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows,” Majors’ criminal defense attorney Priya Chaudhry said in a statement. Chaudhry went on to say that she is confident her client would be cleared of charges “imminently.” Text messages from the woman involved in the altercation have also been revealed, showing that she does not want charges placed against Majors, saying that she was “so angry” that the actor was arrested and that she told the authorities that “this was not an attack.”

Chaudhry also claims to have video evidence, a witness testimony, and two written statements from the woman involved recanting the allegations, all of which the lawyer believes adds up to her client’s innocence. Jonathan Majors is set to appear in court on May 8. In the meantime, his rising career is beginning to plummet.

The allegations against Jonathan Majors came just as two significant blockbuster films hit theaters: Creed III and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. In the Ant-Man sequel, Majors reprised his role of Kang the Conquerer, who is set up to be the main villain in Marvel Phase Five and who appeared in the Marvel/Disney+ TV show Loki. While rumors are swirling around online that Marvel is getting ready to replace Majors (possibly with Snowfall’s Damson Idris), the studio has not made a public comment on the matter and Majors has already completed filming for Loki Season 2.

While Marvel may not have cut ties with Jonathan Majors yet, other projects have already parted ways with the actor following the allegations. The Lovecraft Country actor was cut from a series of Army recruitment advertisements he had done for the service and Giant Freakin Robot exclusively reported that Majors was recast in the Dennis Rodman biopic 48 Hours in Vegas

The abuse allegations came at a pivotal time in Jonathan Majors’ career, dropping just as the actor was beginning to become a household name. Despite the evidence Majors’ lawyer claims to have to prove her client’s innocence, it feels as though the entire story has not been made public yet. To find out what really happened on the day of the allegations and to see if Majors might be able to recover his career, fans will have to wait and see what happens in court on May 8.
