The alleged text
Text messages from the actor’s claimed assault victim have been revealed by Jonathan Majors’ attorney and could show the actor’s innocence.
The “Creed III” star received several texts from the woman at the center of the case after his arrest, “admitting that she was the one who used physical force against him,” Priya Chaudhry said in a statement to TMZ on Thursday, March 30.
In messages that were allegedly sent by the woman, she promises to “make sure nothing happens about this” because “I told them it was my fault for trying to grab your phone,” according to screenshots of those messages.
I adore you, she added.
Following up with Majors, 33, hours later when he had not responded, the woman added that she had told him “point blank” that the alleged strangulation “did not occur” and that he should be “removed immediately.”
Additionally, she stated that she was urging the district attorney not to charge Majors.
Majors “completely denies assaulting the woman,” according to Chaudry.
Last weekend, following a 911 call, police found the Marvel star inside a Chelsea apartment and took him into custody.
Police took the woman, who reported having been assaulted, to the hospital for treatment of her minor head and neck wounds before swiftly taking Majors into custody.
Majors was charged with six third-degree assaults, three third-degree attempted assaults, and two second-degree assaults in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Later, Chaudry claimed that her client was “completely innocent” and referred to Majors as the incident’s victim.
In a statement, Chaudhry said, “We are swiftly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be immediately dropped.”
The statement from Chaudhry added, “This evidence includes video footage from the vehicle where this event took place, witness testimony from the driver and others who both saw and heard the episode, and most crucially, two written statements from the woman recanting these charges.
