On Friday, new evidence references a separate incidence of violence before Majors' arrest in March. According to People, Majors appears to admit to physically attacking his ex, Grace Jabbari, in 2022. In a text exchange between Majors and Jabbari, he threatens suicide if she seeks medical care.
Jonathan Majors' Attorney Allowed The Prosecution To Reintroduce "Damaging" London Evidence Previously Ruled Inadmissible
Judge Michael Gaffey previously ruled in favor of the defense that "potentially damaging" details from the London incident were inadmissible. However, he said Majors' attorney Priya Chaudhry opened the door for this evidence because her cross-examination of Jabbari lacked specificity.
Earlier this week, Chaudhry questioned Jabbari about telling emergency personnel she didn't remember what caused her injuries in March. Gaffey said on Friday that Chaudhry tried to undermine her credibility despite knowing "there might be another reason she was not forthcoming."
Wow. Huge blunder by Jonathan Majors' attorney in her cross of Grace Jabbari. She made it so texts that Majors sent Jabbari months earlier imploring her not to go to the hospital for a head injury "even if you do lie" could be entered as evidence. https://t.co/CVl0QI9wx2

Majors' response in 2022 to Jabbari insisting on seeking medical treatment without implicating him possibly explains her reluctance in March. He threatened to kill himself if she went to the hospital for a head injury. The Marvel star kept his head down throughout the reading of the messages.
