DeMario Jackson Hangs Out at a Bar With 2 Women Following 'Bachelor in Paradise' Scandal
By Jackie Willis
DeMario Jackson had some female companionship when he hit the town on Tuesday night.
Jackson left Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, earlier this week after Bachelor in Paradise suspended production over "allegations of misconduct" that allegedly took place between the reality show cast member and fellow contestant Corinne Olympios.
Days after the alleged incident, Jackson was spotted heading into a bar in Long Beach, California, with two women, wearing gray jeans, a black jacket and T-shirt and a baseball cap. He later appeared to be in good spirits outside the establishment with the same women and two other guys.
Jackson was also spotted at a Starbucks in Los Angeles, and while he wouldn't address why the ABC show suspended production, he did praise Olympios. "You know, Corinne's an awesome girl and that's all I have to say," he said in a video exclusive to ET.
A source close to Jackson also told ET that the new reality star believes he’ll be vindicated by show footage. "He's definitely said a few times that based on his conversations with other castmates who were there, they never felt like it was to the level it's being portrayed," the source explained. "DeMario feels the footage [from the show] will back up his side."
