DeMario Jackson is hoping to clear his name amid a scandal that shut down production of the current season of ABC‘s Bachelor in Paradise series. Jackson says footage of a poolside romp would reveal that he and a castmate had consensual sexual contact and wants the footage released publicly.
Sources close to DeMario tell TMZ … he’s hell-bent on getting a copy of the footage of himself and Corinne [Olympios] “rubbing, touching and fingering” in the pool. We’re told he already had a lawyer contact Warner Bros requesting the tape.
DeMario believes the video will prove what he’s said all along — Corinne was lucid and he did nothing wrong. If he can’t get a copy, we’re told he wants WB to release it on its own. DeMario also wants them to release a statement clarifying HE isn’t under investigation.
Multiple people who’ve seen the footage tell us … the encounter appears completely consensual and DeMario is in no way the aggressor. In fact, we’re told he and Corinne seemed kind and considerate to each other.
Jackson has not been accused of any crime and the outlet speculated that he could be looking to project himself should charges of misconduct arise at a later date.
