DeMario Jackson Chokes Up in First Interview After 'Bachelor in Paradise' Scandal

DeMario Jackson is speaking out in his first official interview after the Bachelor in Paradise scandal involving him and fellow contestant Corinne Olympios.

The reality star was accused of sexual assault and production on the show was shut down, though ABC will begin filming again after an investigation concluded that there was no misconduct on set.

“It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother,” DeMario says in an interview with E! News. The first part of the interview will air tonight (June 26) at 11pm on E! News.

“It’s hard to see your mom cry every single day. It was very difficult,” he added. “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.”
