Will this finally bring the Bachelor in Paradise sex scandal to a close? Only if you buy DeMario Jackson‘s side of the story!
In the first part of a two-night, three-part interview on E! News, the Bachelorette alum tells the story of how he and Corinne Olympios first became "homies" — which just so happened to be the same night as the alleged "sexual misconduct"!
"Our first real conversation was at the bar. We were hanging out. We kind of were just complimenting each other on being villains. I was like, ‘Look, I’ve accepted this role.’ We were kind of just laughing, like, ‘Oh, we’re about to dominate Paradise!’ Like homie stuff, like really, really like friends. And then, you know, we started having a little bit more fun…and had a few drinks."
That’s when things "got a little hot and heavy."
DeMario says he and Corinne began making out, with her legs were wrapped around him:
"I was like, ‘Hell yeah!’ You know, I’m down for it. I’m not gonna… I don’t think any single man — some married ones –wouldn’t turn down Corinne. She’s a beautiful woman!"
Then she led him to the pool, where DeMario says cameras were following their every move:
"It’s crazy because when you’re a man — mostly African American men — 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."
But he didn’t listen. He says he kept going because it was all too hot:
"Things got wild because it was more her being the aggressor, which was sexy…
I get out of the pool, and I have my legs in the pool, and I’m just hanging out… This is when she gets up out of the pool and puts her lady parts right on my face — I don’t know if I can say it…"
Ch-ch-check out all that in the first clip (below)!
Even during the infamous oral, DeMario says Corinne never seemed drunk, throughout the entire experience. It wasn’t until later that
"Don’t get me wrong. That night, we went for it. That night was probably the wildest night of my entire life. Like, we went for it."
DeMario also heard the stories that Corinne kissed three other men that night, but he could only confirm one — Derek Peth:
"She and Derek had their little thing. She, like, came up, jumped in his arms, like slammed him to the ground. Like, all over him."
The next morning, says DeMario, the cast woke up hung over, but everything was friendly — even between himself and Corinne:
"We’re talking, I gave her a hug. We all went up and got breakfast together… She wasn’t mad. We were hanging out."
"He goes, ‘Here’s what I’m gonna need you to do: I’m going to need you to bow out. Tell Chris and the crew you that love them, you’re thankful. However, you know you’re not there for the right reasons.’ I’m like, ‘What the fuck?’ Straight up. He goes, ‘I can’t tell you what I know, but it’s going to be bad if you don’t leave tonight.’"
Wow. We had not heard that before at all!
