TMZ: Meagan Good & Jonathan Majors have been dating for a few weeks

Meagan Good finalized her divorce almost a year ago. She was married to DeVon Franklin, a preacher, for nine years. She was truly a preacher’s wife, and she was always held up as “a good Christian woman” who won the respectability-politics lottery. Once her marriage fell apart, Meagan came back on the scene a little bit, and she made news when she started posting sexier photos on her social media accounts. People have been waiting to see who she would date post-divorce. I don’t think anyone expected this. TMZ reported exclusively that Meagan is now dating Jonathan Majors, whose last relationship ended when he assaulted his girlfriend. Majors is currently facing felony and misdemeanor charges related to domestic violence.

Jonathan Majors is still in the throes of a tricky legal situation, but he’s been able to find some time for love … TMZ has learned the actor recently started dating Meagan Good. Sources with direct knowledge tell us, over the course of the last several weeks, Jonathan and Meagan have gotten close, and the relationship is “fairly new.” What’s more, a witness tells us they were at the Alamo Drafthouse in L.A. last weekend to see a movie … so it’s not like they’re hiding the fact they’re hanging out.

It’s unclear how serious the relationship is, but we’ve reached out to reps for Meagan and Jonathan. So far, no word back.

Of course, Majors continues to fight criminal charges in NYC — 3 counts of attempted assault as well as assault, one count of aggravated harassment, and a separate count of harassment. Majors had a court hearing earlier this week where his legal team hoped the D.A. would drop some, if not all, of the charges … but they all remain.

My gut says that this is not coming from Meagan Good or her people whatsoever, this is coming from Jonathan Majors and his people. I suspect that he wouldn’t blatantly lie about every part of it, but I want to believe that Meagan has the good sense not to “date” him. I have no idea though. I would like to say this though: how sh-tty is Jonathan Majors’ PR? I realize that he has been dumped by his management team and so he probably doesn’t have professional PR anymore. But truly, anyone with any kind of sense would tell him not to be seen out on dates just six weeks after he was arrested for beating and choking his live-in girlfriend.

    I think this is directly from Majors’ legal team, especially coming from TMZ that loves to support toxic male abusers. I’m sure he’s been given instructions to treat Meagan well so they can continue to disparage his victim as a crazy violent liar because look at what a wonderful supportive nonviolent new relationship he has!

  2. Lili says:

    What a mess, all i can think of is the Steve Harvey book think like a man. Meagan is not thinking like a man here. this is very cynical move on Jonathan’s part. he was getting pulled to shreds because the woman was white. this is justtoo cynical. if Meagan is coming from a preachers wife life style, she is not rushing out crazy or maybe she is. i wish her the best.

  3. DaniM says:

    This makes them both look desperate and stupid. If Good has any sense (unless she’s being offered something in return), she’ll deny the rumours.

  4. LooneyTunes says:

    Meghan must need the cash bc this showmance is not it.

  5. Bex says:

    Maybe this has been going on longer than previously thought, and she was the person he was texting behind his girlfriend’s back. 👀

  6. Ceej says:

    1 who is she? 2 girl no! As Whoopi would say you in danger girl

    Abusers don’t change their spots because of bad media attention.

    • DaniM says:

      Film/TV actress; mostly TV. Honestly though, I know more of her through the men she’s dated.

  7. Amanda says:

    Because apparently the bar is in Hell.

  8. Brassy Rebel says:

    So now serious domestic violence felonies are “a tricky legal situation”? If he was charged with murder, I guess he would be facing some legal inconveniences.

  9. MsIam says:

    I hope this is not true. Its weird, the other night I started watching a movie she was in on Lifetime where she plays an abused wife. I had to turn it off because it was brutal and I just couldn’t keep watching it. Now to read this? Maybe its just super casual and she’s already made her exit.

  10. honeychild says:

    Meagan girl, whatcha doin’?
    I am going to pretend I didn’t see this and hope it all goes away by next week. LOL

    • Christine says:

      Me too, and I’m also grateful Meagan and Meghan are spelled differently, in the hope the idiots on Twitter can spell. I know they can’t spell, but maybe Meagan will see something about Meghan that makes her wake up to the fact that she needs a really good man. Why in the actual fuck would she agree to ANYTHING with this man?

  11. Chanteloup says:

    Wow, this is the not the flex he thinks it is, he’s just following the Abuser’s Handbook page by page isn’t he? Next up, he’ll attempt to release a statement from her saying it’s IMPOSSIBLE that any of the abuse happened because it didn’t happen to meeeeeeeeee.

  12. Lizzie Bathory says:

    For her sake, I hope this isn’t true.

    But this does feel very Brad Pitt-esque. Just tease that he’s dating or “getting close to” a different woman every few weeks to distract from serious allegations of abuse.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I hope this isn’t true.

  14. WTF says:

    I really hope that this isn’t true. You can’t tell from these photos, but she’s stunningly beautiful. She never bad talks anyone. And I’ve only ever heard good things about how she treats people.

    • Moneypenny424 says:

      Right? Meagan is absolutely stunning–watching her on “Harlem,” she is just ridiculously beautiful. Never heard anything bad about her. I hope it is totally false and that it isn’t a showmance.

  15. Ameerah M says:

    Apparently she was the woman his ex accused him of talking to on the phone. ALLEGEDLY. Megan Goode has serious “Pick Me” vibes and always has. She seems to be one of those women who takes on whatever persona works best for the man she is with. To still be dating this man after all of this is…something else. Because if someone I had started dating had abuse charges he wouldn’t see me for dust ever again.

  16. hangonamin says:

    no girl no. say a prayer for protection and run. abusive toxic men should come with a big warning label on their forehead.

  17. Meg says:

    I remember her saying she was waiting until marriage before her and her now ex husband were intimate saying she’d learned from her previous bad relationships. That honestly made me sad, she felt the need to ‘test’ him to ensure he didn’t just want sex from her but for sure wanted something more?
    Ciara did the same thing with her husband. Once the novelty of the sex wears off what do you have? I always felt that was the case with Jessica Simpson and nick lachey.
    Goode was married 9years so that’s.not a small amount of time but man it just seems sad to feel the need to test your partner like that? The way she phrased it sounded like a test

  18. j.ferber says:

    She is an exceptionally stunning woman. So I think she’s in it for the paycheck, really. He needs image repair and she probably needs money, after her divorce. It’s a business deal, in my opinion.
