Jurors Hear Jonathan Majors’ Texts To Accuser, Including Suicide Threats, Amidst Court Proceedings


During the ongoing trial of actor Jonathan Majors, his text messages to his accuser, Grace Jabbari, were read aloud in court today. The texts shed light on a previous incident that occurred in London, six months prior to the incident for which Majors is currently standing trial. In these September 2022 messages, Majors alludes to potential repercussions should Jabbari choose not to protect him by telling the truth.

Key Takeaway

Jonathan Majors’ text messages to his accuser, Grace Jabbari, including references to a prior London incident and threats of suicide, were read aloud in court during his ongoing trial. These messages highlight the strain in their relationship and the emotional toll experienced by both parties.

Concerns About Protection and Investigation

Majors’ text reads, “They will ask you questions, and as I don’t think you actually protect us, it could lead to an investigation even if you do lie, and they suspect something.” This message suggests that Majors had reservations about Jabbari’s ability to safeguard their relationship during legal proceedings.

Jabbari responds, assuring Majors that she will deceive doctors if necessary, stating, “I will tell the doctor I bumped my head if I go. I’m going to give it one more day, but I can’t sleep and I need some stronger painkillers. That’s all: why would I tell them what really happened when it’s clear I want to be with you.”

Emotional Impact in the Courtroom

During her fourth day on the stand, as Jabbari began reading the texts aloud in court, she became overwhelmed with emotions, breaking down in tears. Assistant District Attorney Kelli Galaway had to step in and continue reading the exchange, allowing the jury to understand the contents of the messages.

Excluded Incident, but Admissible Texts

The texts referenced an incident that took place while Majors and Jabbari were in London. Although the judge had ruled that the specific details of the incident would not be admissible in this trial, the text messages were deemed relevant since they shed light on the “conduct that is inextricably interwoven with the charged acts.”

A Trial for Alleged NYC Attack

Majors is currently on trial for an alleged attack on Jabbari that occurred in New York City in March 2023. The incident reportedly involved a heated exchange in the back of a taxi, during which Jabbari claims Majors struck her as they fought over his phone.

Threats of Suicide

Notably, the September 2022 texts also feature messages in which Majors threatens to take his own life, stating, “Last night I considered killing myself versus coming home. I need love too. Or maybe I’m such a monster and horrible man, I don’t deserve it. And I should just kill myself. In this way, my existence is miserable. I want to die.”

Jabbari expresses her understanding of Majors’ fears regarding an investigation but tells him that she would have to “tell someone” if he continues to make such threats. Despite this, Majors continues to mention thoughts of suicide, asserting that he will likely go through with it.

The Impact in the Courtroom

According to reports, Majors kept his head down while the texts were being read in court. Once the reading concluded, he glanced at the jury, perhaps seeking a glimpse of their reaction or response.
