Entertainment Tonight claims Bachelor in Paradise star DeMario Jackson was recently spotted at a Long Beach, California bar with two women just days after being accused of assaulting Corinne Olympios. Jackson was also spotted in a Los Angeles Starbucks where he refused to address allegations he assaulted Corrine while she was drunk.
US Weekly claims Corrine released a statement yesterday that read: “I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production.
As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.”
Hollywoodlife.com claims DeMario has released a statement saying; “It’s unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations. I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws.”
Sources tell Perez Hilton: “DeMario is in high spirits… He certainly isn’t the man he’s being portrayed to be. It’s hard for his loved ones to sit and watch most of the slanderous accusations and comments from individuals who don’t know anything about who he is. There’s been a snowball of misinformation… Of course the crew and production team wants everyone to be safe on their set, and that’s why they want everything to be figured out with a proper investigation.”
Former Bachelor in Paradise star Lauren Himle tells Inside Edition that there is no way the producers of the show would have not known that Corinne Olympios was drunk and in trouble with DeMario Jackson. ”There are always cameras and producers everywhere. There’s no chance that no one saw what was going on. Zero. I can’t imagine knowing that there are producers watching this that you trust and not coming to help you. “People would be shocked to find out what happens behind the scenes of The Bachelorand Bachelor in Paradise. They’re like, ‘OK, tequila shots for everyone.’ And of course you’re gonna take the shot; you’re not gonna be the only person that’s not. When you’re fed alcohol, you really have less of a filter which in the producers’ eyes is good for them. It was only a matter of time before something bad happened because it’s a recipe for disaster.”
