DeMario Jackson Wants Bachelor In Paradise Footage Released

TMZ is reporting that Bachelor in Paradise star DeMario Jackson wants Warner Bros. to release the footage of his infamous hookup with Corinne Olympios that shut down production and launched an internal investigation, all in an attempt to clear his name.

According to the report, DeMario feels the tape will prove that Olympios was "lucid" during their alcohol-fueled hookup in a pool, despite reports that claim she was blackout drunk at the time.

He reportedly had a lawyer reach out to Warner Bros., requesting the release of the tape.

In the meantime, TMZ reports that Jackson is on friendly terms with Olympios but may lawyer up to protect himself.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, a producer filed a complaint after she became concerned that Olympios was too drunk to engage in sexual contact with Jackson on the first day of filming. An investigation was launched on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, and Jackson and Olympios were dismissed from the show. The remainder of the cast was put on lockdown before being dismissed a few days later.

It's unlikely that Bachelor in Paradise will resume production on its current season.
