DeMario Jackson is reportedly done with Bachelor in Paradise — at least for the time being. Earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced that filming is set to start up again after allegations of “misconduct” temporarily shut down production on season four. But reports say DeMario Jackson, who was caught up in the controversy, won’t be returning to Mexico anytime soon.
CNN reports that a source close to the reality contestant said Jackson feels that “it’s not a good idea” to appear on the rest of Bachelor in Paradise this season. And Jackson’s lawyer, Walter Mosley, told Entertainment Tonight that Jackson is busy “seeing his doctors, meditating, and just getting well” after the unexpected scandal. “First and foremost, outside of making sure my client is healthy is clearing his name, vindicating him,” Mosley said. “He doesn’t need this to be over him, so that’s really my focus is clearing his name, [his] reputation.”
Corinne Olympios, who was also involved in the misconduct accusations, hasn’t addressed the possibility of returning to the show. For now, her lawyers are still moving ahead with their own investigation into the situation.
