Meagan Good Ignored Friends Warning Her Against Dating Jonathan Majors Amid Assault Trial

Meagan Good has revealed that, while she was warned against dating Jonathan Majors amid his assault trial with ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari, she chose to do so anyway.

The Harlem star shared her perspective on her current relationship on Today with Hoda and Jenna, where she was asked if friends advised her to hold off on dating the Creed III actor “to see how everything kinda shakes out” with his trial, as he was charged with two counts of assault in the third degree, one count of harassment in the second degree, and one count of aggravated harassment when they began dating. He was ultimately found guilty on two of the four charges.

“Uh, yeah every friend advised me, but at the end of the day, one thing I know is I can always look at myself in the mirror when I trust my spirit, when I trust God, when I ask God, and when I move to the beat of my own drum,” she explained. She went on to say that, while she takes her loved one’s advice into account, she ultimately has to live her own life.

“I can always look and say, ‘OK, I’m proud of that.’ No matter whatever happens, I have peace in my heart, and I have harmony in my heart,” she said before adding that only she can “give God an account of what I did, and so I wanna be responsible for the choices that I make, and I also wanna live the life that I wanna live.”

She went on to gush over her relationship with the Lovecraft Country star, sharing, “The support we’ve been able to give each other, the pouring into each other, the honest conversations, the love, the respect, just the care and the thoughtfulness, it’s just been really wonderful.”

The Q&A follows the New York premiere of Good’s new film, Divorce In The Black, and Majors being recognized for his perseverance at the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards.

Speaking of the accusations against him during his acceptance speech, Majors shared with tears in his eyes, “As a Black man in the criminal justice system, I felt anger, I felt sadness, hurt, surprise. When they snatched me up out of my apartment in handcuffs…I didn’t feel like Jonathan Majors, Mr. Creed, Mr. Kang; I felt like a little scared, weak boy, despite the support and evidence that was in my favor, I knew sh*t was bad. And it was bad because of who I was and what I am. This is what happens to Black people all too often.”
