The assault case involving actor Jonathan Majors has taken an unexpected turn, with conflicting stories and an ongoing investigation leaving many intrigued. The actor has now filed a domestic violence complaint against his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, and the NYPD is considering arresting her. Details inside…
According to the “Lovecraft Country” star, the incident occurred during a heated argument in March when Grace, allegedly intoxicated at the time, scratched and hit him. He told the police that Grace scratched his arm and dug her thumbnail into his face, causing his chin to bleed. He gave investigators time-stamped photographs he took of those injuries,
Their argument resulted in the actor being charged with assault and harassment.
In a recent development, just two days after the CREED III star filed his complaint on June 22, the New York Police Department (NYPD) issued an investigation card, commonly known as an I-card. This crucial document provides law enforcement officials with probable cause to arrest Grace, a 30-year-old professional dancer, on charges of assault. The I-card serves as a significant milestone in the investigation, potentially leading to further legal action against Grace.
While Jonathan’s assault case is set to go to trial on August 3, Manhattan prosecutors have shown hesitancy in pursuing charges against Grace. This reluctance has left many scratching their heads and questioning the direction of the investigation.
Initially, the Chinatown police station issued Grace an “incident card” for questioning, but surprisingly, it was later canceled, leaving the decision up in the air. With conflicting interpretations of the evidence, the final call remains uncertain.
Priya Chaudhry, Majors’ attorney, said her client is the real victim of the pair’s stormy relationship.
“From the beginning, we have said Jonathan Majors is innocent and provably the victim here,” Chaudhry told The Post in a statement.
“Last week, for the first time, Mr. Majors met with the NYPD to present them with evidence of what really happened on that night,” the attorney continued. “Within hours of viewing the evidence, and conducting their own thorough investigation, the NYPD found probable cause to arrest Grace Jabbari for assaulting Jonathan Majors.”
Just last week, the “When We Rise” star made an appearance in a Manhattan court, where he was seen holding a Bible in one hand and accompanied by his new girlfriend, Meagan Good. The purpose of the hearing was to address the case, which is scheduled to go to trial on August 3. Fans find it odd that the “Harlem” actress is supporting the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star amid his domestic violence case.
The 33-year-old Hollywood star’s arrest took place three months ago in his Chelsea apartment. It’s alleged Grace caught him texting another woman, and that’s what set off their argument, which turned physical. Fans believe he was texting Meagan Good.
As of right now, Grace Jabbari is a free woman. We’ll have to wait and see if the NYPD decides to arrest her or not.
