As Jonathan Majors waits to find out his sentence following a December assault conviction, two more women have accused the actor of physical and emotional abuse.

In a Thursday (Feb. 8) report in The New York Times, Emma Duncan and Maura Hooper — who dated The Creed III actor before he became famous — alleged he was abusive toward them.

Duncan told The Times Majors physically and emotionally abused her, and Hooper alleged emotional abuse.

In pretrial statements to the prosecution in Majors’ New York City assault case and separately in an interview with The Times, Duncan alleged that the actor choked her, threw her around, and left her with bruises. She was engaged to the actor from 2015 to 2019.

“You lose your sense of worth,” Duncan told the paper about dating the former Marvel star.

In her pretrial statement, Duncan alleged that Majors “threatened to strangle and kill her” in 2016. That same year, she alleged Majors “slammed her body into their mailbox” during an argument, leaving bruises on her back and arms.

Duncan said one incident occurred in a hotel room when she visited Majors in Sante Fe, New Mexico. She said he pushed her into a couch, choked her and told her he was “going to kill” her. According to The Times, her testimony was not allowed to be entered into evidence in the case.

Majors’ attorney Priya Chaudhry denied Duncan’s account of the hotel incident, but admitted that the two “had many serious arguments.”

Meanwhile, Hooper said she dated Majors between 2013 and 2015. She claimed the actor became controlling and she was “not allowed to speak to anyone about their relationship, isolating her from a support system.”

She claimed that after they broke up, Majors discovered she was dating someone he knew and lost it. She said he called her on the phone, told her she was a “whore” and said, “I hope you die, kill yourself.”

She also claimed Majors repeatedly threatened to take his own life while they were dating.

Chaudhry said Majors was “young and insecure” at the time of his relationship with Hooper.

The Times also interviewed 20 people who worked with the actor on HBO’s Lovecraft Country, and some alleged he had a “history of volatility.”

Jessica Pollini, Lisa Zugschwerdt, and other female crewmembers said they felt threatened by Majors while on set and alleged his behavior made it difficult for them to do their jobs.

The Times reported Pollini, Zugschwerdt and a third female crewmember lodged formal complaints with HBO about Majors, and the actor was forced to apologize.

Chaudry said Majors was never “told that anyone objected to his behavior.”

On Dec. 18, Majors was found guilty of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari during an incident in New York City.

The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star was arrested after Jabbari accused him of assaulting her on March 25, 2023, as they rode in the back of a chauffeured SUV.

The actor pleaded not guilty, but was convicted of two misdemeanor assault and harassment counts. He faces up to a year in jail.

Majors was scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 6, but the sentencing was postponed after his legal team filed a new motion to have his guilty verdict in the domestic violence case set aside.

A new sentencing date was set for April 8.
