Report: “Creed III” Star Jonathan Majors Arrested in NYC for Alleged Assault, Which His Rep Denies


Hey– innocent until proven guilty must be remembered here.

“Creed III” star Jonathan Majors was arrested in NYC today for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. TMZ reported it and now other outlets are chiming. Majors has already been released.

TMZ says their sources say Majors and his girlfriend got into a spat coming back to Chelsea from a Brooklyn bar by cab. She tried to sneak a look at his phone to see who he was texting with and he allegedly put his hands on her.

What really happened? Hopefully a misunderstanding or miscommunication. Majors is hot right now with “Creed” and other projects like the new “Ant Man” movie.. He recently hosted “SNL” and he’s set for two “Avengers” movies, His Sundance film, “Magazine Dreams,” was picked by Searchlight as an Oscar 2023 contender.

On a personal note, I met him at the Oscars and he seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

A rep for Majors tells TMZ … “He’s done nothing wrong. We look forward to clearing his name and clearing this up.”
