Meagan Good holds hands with Jonathan Majors outside courthouse after he’s found guilty of harassment, assault



Meagan Good held onto Jonathan Majors’ hand outside of a New York City courthouse Monday after he was found guilty of harassment and assault.

Good — who was wearing a black blazer and brown thigh-high boots— kept an expressionless face as she held tightly onto the former Marvel star.

As for Majors, he also looked stoic while wearing an all-gray suit for the third day of his court appearance.

The actor was found guilty on the two charges following an incident in March with his then-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, that took place inside a hired car in NYC.

Jabbari’s order of protection against Majors was also renewed.

However, the jury acquitted Majors of two other counts of assault and aggravated harassment.

Following the verdict, Majors’ lawyer Priya Chaudhry told Page Six, “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. 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.”

He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 6.

Good has been supportive of her boyfriend in the months leading up to his trial, even going as far as appearing at his June court appearance.

The two were first romantically linked in May before they were spotted out together on numerous PDA-filled dates in New York City.

Good has not publicly addressed her boyfriend’s trial or verdict.

The domestic dispute between Jabbari and Majors allegedly occurred after his ex-girlfriend saw a suggestive text message on Majors’ phone that read, “I wish I was kissing you right now.”

When she attempted to snatch his phone, the actor allegedly twisted her arm and struck her.

During the trial, Jabbari testified that Majors’ would allegedly fly into a “violent” rage at times during their relationship.

The British dancer recalled how she grew to be “scared” of Majors in December of that year after bringing up her ex-boyfriend’s dog.

“It was the first time I felt scared of him,” Jabbari told the jurors. “I knew to never mention my ex again or anyone I had dated before.” 

As for the incident that took place in the hired car, the driver at the time, Naveed Sarwar, testified that he had a “feeling” Jabbari might have been the aggressor.

However, Sarwar said that he didn’t witness the incident as he was looking “straight ahead” at the road.

Sarwar also said that he saw Majors push Jabbari back into the pulled-over vehicle — a moment also captured on surveillance footage.

“He was trying to throw her in the car,” Sarwar testified. “He was saying, ‘Leave me alone. I have to go.’”

Majors has since been dropped by his manager and publicist. Marvel has also fired the actor.
