The Bachelor franchise will never be the same…
As we reported, Bachelor In Paradise star DeMario Jackson sat down with E! News in a two-night, three-part interview where he tells his side of the alleged “sexual misconduct” that occurred between him and castmate Corinne Olympios.
In the second part, the former recruiter details how the controversy has affected his life, now that his name is associated with the term “sexual assault.”
The Bachelorette alum revealed:
“It’s every man’s biggest fear. No man wants to be attached to that. That ruins you for life. That’s something that sticks with you… When I have children they are going to Google their dad’s name and this is going to appear. That’s my biggest fear.”
While he’s not mad at Corinne, he’s “mad at the situation,” and believes he got “played.”
“I got played… not by her but I got played in general. I am not sure by who, but I got played.”
After launching an investigation, Warner Bros. found no evidence of wrongdoing, and filming resumed without DeMario’s participation.
