Bachelor in Paradise star DeMario Jackson has been accused of sexual misconduct. He is involved in a scandal with fellow contestant Corinne Olympios that has caused production to be shut down. DeMario Jackson quickly became the bad boy of The Bachelorette/Bachelor franchise. Just two weeks ago, he was eliminated from The Bachelorette after Rachel Lindsay found out he has a girlfriend.
DeMario Jackson is now involved in another scandal. He immediately flew down to Mexico to begin filming scenes for Bachelor in Paradise. That’s when things took a dark turn. He and fellow contestant Corinne Olympios allegedly drank a lot and started to make out in a swimming pool. Some claimed that there was a lot of “rubbing” and “touching” occurring between the reality stars.
Things took a wrong turn after DeMario’s apparent drunkenness made it impossible for him to hook up with Corinne. A producer that witnessed what happened claims that some sort of sexual misconduct took place. Corinne has lawyered up and claims that she did not give DeMario consent for his sexual actions.
Corinne Olympios is blaming producers for allowing her sexual encounter with Jackson to happen despite her being intoxicated. The two contestants are still on good terms and have exchanged text messages and emails over the past few days. Both Olympios and Jackson claim they were too drunk to know what was going on. Jackson has responded to a text regarding the scandal, in which the New York Post obtained.
He said that the producers should release the “footage” of his sexual interaction with Corinne and that it will make it clear “what happened” between them. Jackson claims that if he can’t see the footage for himself, then he wants Warner Bros, the production company to release it.
In a separate interview with the Daily Mail, he claimed that his “side” of the story will come out soon. He also thanked the Bachelor in Paradise fans for their support during this turbulent time. DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios were casted as the villains of the reality series and were reportedly scripted to hook up on Bachelor in Paradise.
