Meagan Good recently shared that her friends advised her against dating Jonathan Majors amid his assault trial. On Today with Hoda & Jenna, she explained that despite the advice, she chose to follow her heart. When asked about her friends’ warnings, she replied, “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.”

Majors was charged with multiple counts of assault and harassment related to his ex-girlfriend Grace Jabbari. Good’s friends advised her to wait for the trial’s outcome. He was ultimately found guilty on two of the four charges. However, Meagan emphasized her need to live her own life and make her own decisions.

“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 stated. She further added 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.”

Meagan Good’s Relationship and Support

Meagan also spoke about the positive aspects of her relationship with Majors. “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,” she said.

The discussion followed the New York premiere of Good’s new film, “Divorce In The Black.” Additionally, Majors was recently recognized at the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards. Majors shared his emotional journey during his acceptance speech, saying, “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.”

Despite the challenges, Meagan remains supportive and committed to their relationship. She takes her loved ones’ advice into account but ultimately follows her own path.
