DeMario Jackson Shares His Thoughts on the 'Bachelor in Paradise' Controversy

Less than a day after Corinne Olympios spoke out about the alleged misconduct taking place between her and former Bachelorette contestant DeMario Jackson on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, Jackson has now come forward with his own statement.

According to PEOPLE, Jackson said in his public remarks, “It’s unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations. I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws.”

Sources close to Jackson claim that he “has been in high spirits” since news of the conflict broke and BiP production was suspended. Specific details of the incident are still unknown to the public, but both Olympios and Jackson seem committed to bringing the truth to light.
