Jonathan Majors: New Texts Allegedly Show Victim Admitting Fault

The arrest of Jonathan Majors for alleged assault against his girlfriend took the pop culture world by storm earlier this week. As many brought up past allegations of the actor's behavior, and as he was released swiftly from prison, many debated as to what to believe and what these speculations could mean. However, most recently, Majors' lawyer came forward with some text messages that apparently show the alleged victim admitting fault. Moreover, Priya Chaudhry told TMZ that the woman sent texts to Majors hours after his arrest in New York City.

The reported messages indicate that the victim was assured no charges would be pressed as a result of their fight and his subsequent arrest. Also, she said that it was her fault for trying to grab his phone, and that she recently left the hospital. In addition, she asked the actor to update her once he got out of police custody. In a separate message, she said that authorities reached out to her again and that she maintained she doesn't want prosecution or assessment of this as an attack.

Jonathan Majors' Alleged Victim Reportedly Takes Blame

Not only that, but from what the leaked texts indicate, she pushed back on various outlets claiming strangulation in the incident. Apparently a judge was assigned to the case, and the alleged victim is making sure they receive the right information. Said information is that the origin of the call that Majors got arrested for was that his girlfriend passed out and that he was worried as a partner. Specifically, she said that the "Creed III" star has a great legal team and shouldn't worry, but that she's doing all she can on her end to set the record straight in addition.

According to Chaudhry, Majors' legal team is working hard to compile all sorts of evidence, like video and messages like these, to prove his innocence. These texts, for example, were turned over to law enforcement, she claimed. However, the 33-year-old was still charged with numerous counts of assault, attempted assault, aggravated harassment, and harassment in the second degree. Along with those charges, some pointed to other testimonies of people who knew Majors who also claimed concerning violent behavior. With all that said, this case should be taken with a grain of salt, as there is too much speculation and not enough court judgements or evidence to know what truly happened.
