We haven't heard the last of the "Bachelor in Paradise" scandal yet.
Although a Warner Bros investigation found no misconduct, the discussion continues, especially now that DeMario Jackson, the man at the center of it, is opening up about the fallout. In a clip from his upcoming three-part interview with E! News' Melanie Bromley, he shares how it affected him and his loved ones.
Jackson found himself shrouded in negative publicity shortly after Season 4 began filming. Following a sexual encounter between him and his cast mate Corinne Olympios, producers raised concerns that she may have been too drunk to consent. While Warner Bros. looked into the issue, both "Bachelor in Paradise" stars became the subject of national conversation.
"It was stressful," Jackson tells Bromley in the clip.
Apparently, it was especially hard on his mom, who he says cried every day. He describes that as "very difficult," especially "for something that you know you didn't do." He had his family on his side, though, including his dad, who he credits with keeping him "strong."
The clip is just a small part of what Jackson has to say. His interview with Bromley will air in three parts on Monday and Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET.
There may be more from Olympios's camp later. Her lawyer has revealed that they're doing their own investigation, so this scandal probably isn't completely behind us. In the meantime, though, "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 4 is back on, and most of the cast has since returned to Mexico to resume filming.
