Jonathan Majors is rumored to be dating Meagan Good, sources have shared with TMZ.
The insiders called the romance between the 33-year-old Creed III star — who could face a year in jail for assault — and 41-year-old Harlem actress ‘fairly new.’
According to the media outlet, the two have been seeing each other ‘over the course of the last several weeks.’
A witness also alleged that the two entertainers enjoyed a movie date at Alamo Drafthouse in Los Angeles last weekend.
It comes as the Lompoc, California-born star’s criminal charge for an alleged altercation with ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari was upgraded to third-degree assault.

Majors was accused of assaulting and strangling his ex in New York City in March. He was charged with misdemeanor assault and harassment. But that charge has now been ‘adjusted,’ his lawyer said.
He attended a court hearing via Zoom on Tuesday morning in regards to the status of his assault case – and it was there that a superseding complaint with a charge of third-degree assault was announced, Deadline reported.
This could see Majors be sent behind bars for up to a year if found guilty. He has previously denied all wrongdoing.
Judge Rachel S. Pauley also discussed a motion filed by Majors’ defense team that the prosecution has until May 23 to respond.
He will have to appear in court on June 13, otherwise he may be arrested, the judge said.
Pauley told the actor on Tuesday morning: ‘I obviously don’t want that to happen, so just stay in touch with your attorney.’
Following the hearing, his attorney Priya Chaudhry published a statement slamming Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for ‘fixing’ the case in favor of the accuser.
She said that despite the alleged evidence that exonerates Majors, the case is continuing and the DA has changed the charge to fit the woman’s ‘new lies.’
Chaudhry said: ‘We have provided the District Attorney with irrefutable evidence that the woman is lying, including video proof showing nothing happened, especially not where she claimed.’

Majors previously claimed that witness testimony and video evidence will prove his innocence amid the domestic violence allegations.
Chaudhry said that a driver for the beleaguered actor witnessed the altercation between the entertainer and his ex at around 1 a.m. on the day of the incident.
The driver witnessed the woman assault the actor while she was trying to steal his phone, Chaudhry said.
The attorney said that the driver will testify that they never witnessed the Marvel actor lay a hand on his ex-girlfriend ‘in any way at any time, or even [raise] his voice’ in their dispute.
The driver will also testify to seeing the woman ‘hitting, scratching and attacking’ Majors, who asked to pull the car over to exit after his ex got physical with him, Chaudhry said.
Majors’ lawyer said that they have evidence to show that the woman’s claims that her finger was broken and ear was lacerated was a ‘complete lie,’ pointing out video footage of the woman going to a nightclub in the wake of the altercation.

Chaudhry said that hours of video footage depict the woman drinking at the club in the wake of the incident, which conflicts with her claims that she suffered the aforementioned injuries at the hands of the actor.
The woman also sent the actor text messages accusing him of cheating on her and threatening to kill herself, Chaudhry said in legal docs.
Chaudhry said that in footage from the nightclub, the woman was seen frequently using her right hand, which she said the actor injured in the incident.
The attorney said in legal docs that the woman was seen styling her hair, rummaging through her purse, sifting through credit cards, and holding her phone and a champagne glass, proving her fitness amid the alleged injury to her hand.
In the court docs, Majors’ legal team said that his ex-girlfriend was also seen taking shots and sipping champagne with friends, not appearing to be nursing any injuries.

Meagan’s dating history includes a marriage to film producer DeVon Franklin for 10 years until they split in December 2021, with the divorce finalized in June 2022.
Earlier this year she revealed her Harlem co-star Whoopi Goldberg was ‘instrumental’ in helping her with the split.
When asked what she has learned from the split during an interview on The View, Good began, ‘I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve rediscovered myself in a lot of ways.’
‘Also I gotta say again, Whoopi was very instrumental in that, because we had some really good conversations I needed to have that were illuminating for me and eye-opening for me,’ Good said.
