Jonathan Majors Dropped By Talent Manager Following Arrest

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star Jonathan Majors parted ways with his talent manager Entertainment 360 after the actor was arrested on charges of domestic violence.

Deadline reported that Entertainment 360, the longtime talent manager for Majors, had dropped the actor as a client just three weeks after he was arrested on charges of domestic violence against an unnamed woman. While the arrest was not directly cited as a reason for the separation, sources claim that the decision was due to Majors' "personal behavior." The actor was also let go by his PR firm The Lede Company in March. Additionally, Majors and the Valentino fashion house "mutually agreed" that he would not attend the Met Gala as a guest.

In March, Majors was arrested for assault and harassment in March on domestic abuse allegations involving an unnamed woman (Majors' girlfriend) who at the time was taken to the hospital for "minor injuries to her head and neck." The actor was charged in NYC on March 25, though he and his legal time have denied the allegations made against him. Majors reportedly called 911 on his girlfriend prior to his arrest.

Jonathan Majors Maintains Denies Assault Allegations

"Jonathan Majors is completely innocent and is probably the victim of an altercation with a woman he knows," said Majors' attorney Priya Chaudhry in a statement shortly after his arrest. "We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently." Chaudhry also claimed that Majors's partner had recanted her statements to the police regarding the assault.

In the wake of his arrest, now only were Majors' advertisements for the U.S. Army's "Be All You Can Be" campaign pulled, but several filmmakers came forward with their experiences regarding the actor's "sociopathic" behavior. Among them was Broadway director/actor Tim Nicolai, a former classmate of Majors at New York University. "I’m just gonna say this about Jonathan Majors and be done with it: folks at Yale and the broader NYC community have known about him for years," Nicolai said. "He’s a sociopath and abuser and that is how virtually everyone speaks about him. It’s a shame it took this long for him to be reported."

How these events will affect Majors' future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe remains unknown, though the actor has completed work on Season 2 of Disey+'s Loki. While Majors was set to portray the MCU's newest big bad, a rumor suggests that Marvel Studios may have a backup plan to replace Majors as Kang. However, this remains only a rumor and has not been officially confirmed by Marvel or Disney.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will be available on Blu-ray on May 16.
