The scandal around the current season of Bachelor in Paradise continues as marketing for the show, which temporarily halted production after accusations of misconduct pertaining to a non-consensual sexual encounter arose, seems to be putting the strife front-and-center. TMZ recently caught up with DeMario Jackson, who was accused of sexual assault, who now says he plans on attending the reunion.
"I owe it to my castmates," says Jackson in the interview. "They've been very supportive of me throughout this whole entire thing. I want to thank them personally."
Jackson also says that he is not planning on having a confrontation with Corinne Olympios, the alleged victim of the misconduct: "It's not in me. That's not who I am as a person," he says.
It is unclear if Olympios will be returning for the reunion. Warner Bros. has not given an official statement on the matter.
