The woman who was allegedly involved in a domestic dispute with Jonathan Majors was granted a full temporary order of protection Thursday, as reported by Deadline.

“Today a judge granted a Full Temporary Order of Protection for the victim, per the People’s request and with the consent of defense counsel,” Manhattan District Attorney’s Office press secretary Doug Jones said in a statement. “At the time of arraignment, a Limited Temporary Order of Protection was granted.”

The actor’s attorney Priya Chaudhry said in response to the order, “This is standard in cases such as this, and we consented because Mr. Majors wants nothing to do with the woman who assaulted him.”

Majors was arrested in late March following an alleged physical altercation with a woman, later identified as his girlfriend, in New York City. The Creed III star was charged with several counts of assault and harassment. Chaudhry released an alleged text exchange between the 33-year-old and his accuser in an attempt to prove his innocence. However, additional alleged abuse victims have come forward since his arrest. 

The talent agency Entertainment 360 and PR firm The Lede Company have severed ties with him. The U.S. Army and Texas Rangers shelved their upcoming campaigns involving the Ant-Man and the WaspQuantumania lead. Majors has also been dropped from the film adaptation of the Walter Mosley novel The Man in My Basement, which he was set to star in and executive produce under his Tall Street Productions banner.

Majors is scheduled to appear in court on May 9.
