Despite video footage that shows Jonathan Major running away from his former girlfriend, Grace Jabari, Jonathan was found guilty of assaulting and harassing Grace in an incident that took place in March. CNN reports that he was found guilty of one count of reckless assault in the 3rd degree and a non-criminal charge of harassment as a violation. He was acquitted on another assault charge and one count of aggravated harassment.

Unfortunately for the up-and-coming actor, Marvel reportedly dropped him after hearing the court's ruling. Jonathan starred as Kang in Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He was signed on to star as Kang again in the upcoming movie Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. According to Vulture, Several projects in development dropped Majors from their cast. According to Deadline on April 20, the actor will no longer star in the film adaptation of the Walter Mosley novel The Man in My Basement or be considered for the unannounced Fifth Season's Otis Redding biopic, Otis and Zelma. He was also announced as a part of Spike Lee's Da Understudy, but there have been no further updates on that film since March 7, 2023. Variety revealed in September 2022 that Majors was in "early talks" to play Dennis Rodman in Lionsgate's 48 Hours in Vegas, though there have been no updates on that film either. The actor was also reportedly dropped from Entertainment 360 and his PR team at the Lede Company. 

Majors could face up to a year in prison, up to 15 days in jail, and a $250 fine for the convictions. According to People, Priya Chaudhry, one of Majors's defense lawyers, stated on Monday, "It is clear that the jury did not believe Grace Jabbari's story of what happened in the SUV because they found that Mr. Majors did not intentionally cause any injuries to her," the statement read. "We are grateful for that. We are disappointed, however, that despite not believing Ms. Jabbari, the jury nevertheless found that Mr. Majors was somehow reckless while she was attacking him. Mr. Majors is grateful to God, his family, his friends, and his fans for their love and support during these harrowing eight months. Mr. Majors still has faith in the process and looks forward to fully clearing his name."
