We probably should've seen this one coming. DeMario Jackson reportedly wants to talk with Corinne Olympios, after their alleged sex scandal caused filming on Bachelor in Paradise to be shut down earlier this month.


The show is reportedly back on, after DeMario was cleared of all allegations of sexual misconduct, although it's unlikely either of the reality stars will return to Mexico.

DeMario has explicitly stated that he will not appear on BIP this summer, but that doesn't mean he's ready to put the entire thing completely behind him. Sources tell TMZ that he wants some answers from Corinne about what really happened, because he was "blindsided and confused" when she claimed to be a victim after their tryst in the pool.

In an upcoming interview with E! News, DeMario opens up about how difficult it was for him and his whole family in the wake of the allegations. "It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother," he confessed. "It's hard to see your mom cry every single day. It was very difficult."

Apparently he never saw Corinne's claims coming: When they got sent home, producers told him that a third party was responsible for shutting it down because they thought something funny was going on -- not Corinne. Adding to the shock was the fact that DeMario reportedly thought they'd be friends, since they were "laughing, chatting, and hooking up" on the first day of filming, as TMZ notes. 

At least he's being smart and keeping his distance. The source says that while he's eager to meet with Corinne and clear things up, he's going to wait on her to make the first move. Probably a good idea, Demario.

It's not all that surprising that DeMario wants to clear the air, so to speak, after what happened with Rachel Lindsey earlier this season on The Bachelorette. After she let him go following a nasty confrontation by his recent ex-girlfriend, DeMario came back to the mansion in an attempt to apologize and explain himself.

We're not convinced it's a good idea for DeMario and Corinne to have a sit-down -- at least not at this point. After all, Warner Bros. may have concluded its investigation, but Corinne's lawyers are reportedly still looking into the matter. We doubt she's willing to catch a drink anytime soon.
