Bachelor in Paradise: DeMario Jackson breaks silence with first interview about scandal

Posted on

DeMario Jackson is ready to tell his side of the story.

After allegations of sexual misconduct between Jackson and Corinne Olympios temporarily shut down production on the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise, Warner Bros. released a statement announcing that the internal investigation had found no misconduct. Now, with cast members returning to Mexico to resume production, Jackson is sitting down with E! News for a two-night interview. According to a press release, Jackson will talk about the day in question, what physical relations actually took place, and the days following.

“It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother,” Jackson tells E! in the clip above. “It’s hard to see your mom cry every single day. It was very difficult … My dad, he kept me extremely strong and kept me grounded and humble but having your mom cry every day for something that you know you didn’t do.”

The two-night interview begins Monday at 11 p.m. ET on E!
