The testimony is part of Majors' criminal trial, where he faces misdemeanor assault and harassment charges. Jabbari, a British professional dancer and movement coach, detailed an alleged assault by Majors and described their relationship as marked by fear and aggression.

The incident in question occurred in July 2022, when Jabbari claimed Majors exploded in a fit of rage, smashing household objects against the wall. She showed jurors a photo of a dent she said was left in the wall after Majors' outburst. Jabbari described Majors' demeanor during such episodes, stating, "His face just kind of changes when he gets into that place." She expressed fear due to Majors' size, mentioning that she just wanted the aggression to stop.

During another altercation in March, Jabbari claimed Majors smacked her in the head, fractured her middle finger by yanking her hand, and twisted her arm behind her back. Majors denies the allegations, asserting that he was the victim and Jabbari the aggressor. If convicted, Majors could face up to a year in jail.

Jabbari revealed that the March incident occurred inside a private car service driving over the Manhattan Bridge. She recounted feeling a hard blow across her head during the alleged assault. Surveillance footage presented in court showed Majors pushing Jabbari back into the SUV before sprinting away through city streets to get away from her.

The trial also allowed Jabbari to present prior examples of what she described as Majors' alarming past behavior. One incident in London in December 2022 involved Majors allegedly ripping her headphones out of her ears, stomping on them, and calling her "embarrassing" and an "alcoholic."

During this episode, Majors warned Jabbari not to be in the house when he got home. The next day, Jabbari recorded Majors yelling at her, criticizing her behavior, and calling himself a "great man" who needed a supportive partner. He compared her to the wives of notable figures like Michelle Obama and Coretta Scott King.

In another troubling revelation, Jabbari shared that Majors sent her a text threatening to commit suicide, referring to himself as a "monster." Despite these incidents, Jabbari chose to stay with Majors at that time.

Jabbari met Majors in 2021 on the set of Marvel's "Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania," where he starred as the villain Kang the Conqueror, and she served as a movement coach. Initially, Majors was described as an "amazing," "really kind," and "loving" partner. However, the relationship took a turn when Majors displayed anger in December 2021, berating Jabbari for mentioning her ex-boyfriend.

The trial is ongoing, with Jabbari expected to complete her testimony. The defense will subsequently cross-examine her as part of Jonathan Majors' legal proceedings.
