• Jonathan Majors is currently on trial for assault
  • His ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, began her testimony
  • THIS is what she alleges in court

The courtroom was charged with tension as Grace Jabbari, a dancer and movement coach, took the stand in a gripping testimony against Marvel actor Jonathan Majors. The star, known for his breakout roles and upcoming lead in 'Avengers: The Kang Dynasty,' is facing harrowing accusations from his ex-lover, who claims their romance turned into a nightmare of abuse.

This case is taking so many turns, that we're going to a need a kind of road map to get around the details.

Drama in the court

Jabbari, who met Majors on the set of 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,' detailed a series of chilling incidents, alleging the actor assaulted her in a hired SUV in New York. Tears streamed down her face as she recounted how Majors allegedly threw glass candles at her and berated her for mentioning an ex.

The jury listened, spellbound, as she described the escalating violence that left her with bruises and a broken finger.

In one argument the 34-year-old action star threw objects that left dents in the wall while she tried to take cover, the jury was told. Another time, he didn't speak to her for days because she went to a music festival.

The trial took a dramatic turn when lawyers played a recording of Majors in a rage, where he compared his need for a partner to the likes of Coretta Scott King or Michelle Obama. Jabbari painted a picture of a troubled man, prone to threats of self-harm, leaving her in constant fear for his well-being.

"I had to constantly look after him. I'd worry because I did not want that to happen," Ms. Jabbari said, according to NBC News. On 25 March, the two were in the back seat of a chauffer-driven SUV when Mr. Majors received a text message from another woman, which he does not dispute.

Jabbari told the jury she snatched the phone out of his hand and he then twisted her arm behind her back and hit her in the head to get it back. "He's very strong. I couldn't move," she said, according to an 'AP' report of her testimony.

One look at Majors and it's clear to see he is not exactly weak. His impressive physique could be used as evidence that Jabbari's testimony is to be deemed credible.

The other side

But wait, there's a twist! Majors, who has been attending the trial with his current girlfriend, actress Meagan Good, and a copy of the Bible, denies all charges. His defense paints a starkly different picture, claiming it was Jabbari who turned violent, leaving the actor bloodied and scratched.

The plot thickens as surveillance footage shows the aftermath of the alleged SUV incident, with Jabbari chasing Majors through the streets. Yet, later that night, she was seen smiling and dancing at a nightclub, claiming she was trying to make the best of a dire situation.

This does not bode well for the prosecution who seeks to sink Majors sooner rather than later. But it's possible this could be the first time a female accuser ends up losing an assault case in Hollywood, in recent memory.

But Majors alleges that it was Jabbari who assaulted him and not the other way around. In opening statements on Monday, his lawyer Priya Chaudhry said her client emerged from the SUV bloody and scratched.

Jabbari ripped two buttons off his coat in the assault and tore the pocket with her bare hands, as the court heard.

The trial is expected to last two weeks. The world watches as the future of a rising star hangs in the balance, and questions linger over what really happened between the former lovers. Stay tuned for more updates on this high-stakes celebrity courtroom saga!
