After weeks of being subjected to allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct, Bachelor in Paradise‘s DeMario Jackson has been cleared of any wrong doing.
Earlier this month Jackson was accused of sexual misconduct after a producer claimed fellow contestant Corinne Olympios was too drunk to consent any type of sexual activities. An investigation was launched and Jackson held strong to his innocence; Olympios claimed she was a victim.
Now, after reviewing footage of the incident, Warner Brothers studios has declared that there was no wrong doing. In a new interview with E!, Jackson says denied speculation that Olympios was “wasted” and stated that she was the aggressor of their intimate encounter, adding that she even tried to straddle his face.
The interaction started when the two were at the bar drinking, next Olympios suggested they hop in the pool together. Jackson was open to her advances and also ensured the camera crew accompanied them both to ensure everything that occurred was on film. “She’s like, ‘Let’s go to the pool, let’s go hang out,’” he adds. “It’s crazy because when you’re a man—mostly African American man—no matter where you’re at, you always look for things that can help you out. And at that moment, I made sure the cameras followed us. It just seemed too perfect in a sense for me, and at the point, that’s when my spidey senses got up.”
He also revealed that production continued for another three days before he was abruptly asked to leave the show, when a producer told him, ‘I can’t tell you what I know, but it’s going to be bad if you don’t leave tonight.’”
The second part of Jackson’s two-night interview will premiere tonight on E! News.
