Marvel star Jonathan Majors’ assault trial took an extremely troubling turn on Tuesday, as his accuser, Grace Jabbari, testified about details of their two year relationship and the alleged incident that led to his arrest.

According to Variety, the exes met during the filming of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” which stars Majors as Kang, and on which Jabbari, a professional dancer, worked as a movement coach.

After the production, things returned to normal, with her staying quiet about Majors’ alleged behavior because “I loved him.” After their fights, the actor would allegedly call himself a “monster” and reveal suicidal thoughts.

“I just felt like I was existing in his world,” she said. “I had low self-esteem. I lost a lot of weight. I felt incompetent and dependent on him. He was the only one who knew what went on.”

Jabbari also revealed that the “Devotion” star wanted her to be more like Coretta Scott King or Michelle Obama. A recording of Majors was played, in which he said, “I’m a great man. A great man. I do great things for my culture and for the world. The woman that supports me needs to be a great woman.”

Jabbari testified that the alleged assault was sparked by Majors receiving a text from another woman. While in the backseat of a private car, she grabbed his phone, then he allegedly “pulled” and “twisted” her arm to get it back. She also described feeling “a hard blow” across her head.

Majors got out of the car, with Jabbari trying to follow him. Surveillance video of the actor “seemingly pushing” her back into the car was shown to the jury.

After their dispute, Jabbari says he went to a hotel and she went to a bar, as she “didn’t want to be alone.” That night she was “aware there was pain in my body, but I hadn’t registered anything. I’m a dancer. I’ve danced with a broken rib.”

“I was only thinking from my heart of the infidelity,” she continued. “That morning, we were talking about when we were going to get married and the names of our [future] children.”

Jabbari will continue her testimony on Wednesday. As previously reported by The Root, Majors is charged with “two counts of assault in the third degree, attempted assault in the third degree, aggravated harassment in the second degree, and harassment in the second degree.”

He pled not guilty, with his lawyers claiming Jabbari actually assaulted him on the night in question. If convicted, he could face up to a year in prison.
