Jonathan Majors is again, in the entertainment spotlight this time from Hollywood Unlocked.

The star of Creed III is set to be honored with the Perseverance Award at the Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards on June 21 in Los Angeles. The event will be hosted by actress comedian Tiffany Haddish and the Perseverance Award recognizes individuals who have continued to inspire others despite facing challenges.

The announcement has taken many by surprise given Majors recent troubles involving assault and harassment towards his ex girlfriend Grace Jabbari. The incident took place during an altercation in Brooklyn before their relationship came to an end. During the trial it was revealed that Majors had subjected Jabbari to physical abuse. Following this he was mandated to participate in a 52 week domestic violence program and faced repercussions such as being dropped from film projects and removed from Marvel Studios.

Since his appearance in the season of Loki (filmed prior, to the dispute) Majors has not taken on any new acting roles. However his current partner, actress Meagan Good continues to stand by him during this time.

The Hollywood Unlocked Impact Awards will be honoring Cardi B with the Inspiration Award, Fat Joe, with the Culture Award and designer Christian Louboutin with the Innovator Award. They will also acknowledge Da Brat and her wife Jesseca Harris Dupart along, with attorney Ben Crump and U.S. Representative Jasmine Crockett.
