Grace Jabbari, the ex-girlfriend of beleaguered actor Jonathan Majors, has filed a civil lawsuit against the Creed III star on the grounds of assault and defamation.

This lawsuit comes just weeks before Majors is set to be sentenced in the criminal trial where the Ant-Man actor was found guilty of reckless assault in the third degree and harassment against Jabbari in December 2023.

Jabbari, a professional dancer and movement coach, filed the legal documents against Majors in the Southern District of New York in Manhattan on Tuesday, March 19.

Grace Jabbari claims Jonathan Majors called her a ‘liar’ about the abuse

According to the court filings obtained by Rolling Stone, Jabbari claims Majors “has consistently engaged in an escalating pattern of abusive behavior towards women since as early as 2013.”

The filing continues, stating, “When publicly confronted with Grace’s numerous allegations of abuse, Majors has called her a liar at every turn and very specifically claimed that he has never put his hands on a woman, with the goal of convincing the world that Grace is not a victim of domestic abuse but instead a crazy liar who should be treated as such.”

Jabbari’s attorney, Brittany Henderson, articulated the rationale behind filing the civil lawsuit after Majors has already been convicted in a criminal trial late last year.

“It takes true bravery to hold someone with this level of power and acclaim accountable,” Henderson said, according to the publication. “Bravery that Grace Jabbari has demonstrated at every stage of the legal process. We strongly believe that through this action, truth and transparency will bring Grace the justice that she deserves.”

Jonathan Majors responds to the civil suit

Jabbari met and fell in love with Majors on the set of the Marvel Comics film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in August 2021. In the civil filing, Jabbari claims Majors defamed her by calling her a liar and making numerous false statements in court and in TV interviews about never laying hands on her during their two-year relationship.

Jabbari is seeking compensatory damages and punitive damages for the physical abuse and alleged assassination of her character. The amount she seeks will be determined at a later date.

Majors’ attorney, Priya Chaudhry, responded to the lawsuit. “This is no surprise. Mr. Majors is preparing counterclaims against Ms. Jabbari,” she told TMZ.
