DeMario Jackson got emotional on camera while reflecting on the "Bachelor in Paradise" sex scandal he's been embroiled in for the last few weeks.
Although Warner Bros. cleared the reality star and on-set producers of any wrongdoing in the situation, the reality star said it was difficult watching the women in his family react to the media's scrutiny around the serious allegation that he may have sexually assaulted "BiP" co-star Corinne Olympios.
"It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother," DeMario told E! News while getting choked up in the interview (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," he added.
As TooFab previously reported, two producers filed misconduct complaints because they felt contestant Corinne Olympios was so drunk she was not able to give Jackson consent before their on-camera hook up in the resorts pool.
Warner Bros. ultimately found there no evidence of sexual misconduct and allowed the show to resume filming the new season in Mexico.
“Out internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident,” the statement read. “We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Not does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.”
Jackson has decided to not return to Mexico to continue his journey on the show.
