Jonathan Majors wipes away tears as says he was ‘shocked and afraid’ at assault conviction

Fired Marvel star Jonathan Majors wiped away tears during his first interview about his conviction for assaulting ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari — saying he was “absolutely shocked and afraid” at being found guilty.

“I’m standing there and the verdict comes down,” he told “Good Morning America” in a tearful sitdown that aired Monday.

“I say, ‘How is that possible based off the evidence, based off the prosecution’s evidence, let alone our evidence? How is that possible?’”

The 34-year-old actor — who was set to become the next major Marvel villain as Kang the Conqueror — was convicted in Manhattan Criminal Court on Dec. 18 of one count of third-degree assault and one count of harassment, but was acquitted of another count of assault and one charge of aggravated harassment.

He was arrested on March 25 after he and Jabbari got into a domestic dispute while taking a taxi home from a bar in Brooklyn.

The altercation began when Jabbari saw Majors getting a text from another woman, saying, “I wish I was kissing you,” she testified in court.

Jabbari, a 31-year-old dancer from England, accused Majors of slapping her, fracturing her finger, twisting her arm, and striking her right ear, causing her to bleed, while she held onto the cellphone.

The disgraced actor conceded mistakes in his relationship with Jabbari, including not ending it sooner when it was clear it was not working.

However, he maintained that he did not beat her, saying he “wished to God” he knew how she got her injuries.

“I was reckless with her heart. Not with her body,” he told “GMA.”

“I was not the best boyfriend all the time — but never hit a woman. My hands have never struck a woman,” he maintained.

“I’m an athlete. I’m a sportsman, I know my body. I know how it moves. I know my strength or lack thereof, you know?

“None of that was employed on her.”

“I’m an athlete. I’m a sportsman, I know my body. I know how it moves. I know my strength or lack thereof, you know?

Majors said he plans to appeal the verdict, and wanted to give his side of the story “as part of healing.”

He is due to be sentenced on Feb. 6.

Asked for a response to the interview, a spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office told “GMA” that they do their speaking in court.
