‘Bachelorette’ star DeMario Jackson charged with sexual assault

Former “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise” contestant DeMario Jackson has been charged with sexual assault by two women.

In court documents obtained by Vidak For Congress, the women — who have chosen to remain anonymous — allege that Jackson “used his fame and public personality to lure the unsuspecting plaintiffs” into a sense of security and safety.

The two Jane Does are suing Jackson for assault, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. They demand unspecified compensation.

The first woman – a 25-year-old Pennsylvania resident who lives in Los Angeles – claims she met the reality star in 2018 through a dating app.

She claims that Jackson exposed herself at the end of their first date. After appearing to sincerely apologize, the unknown woman agreed to see him again.

The Jane Doe further alleges that on a night out with her friends in Los Angeles, Jackson showed up at the bar unannounced and was drunk and unruly with the door staff.

She claims she took Jackson to her home, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

The second woman — a 28-year-old Ohio resident who also lives in LA — claims she met Jackson on social media in April 2019.

Court documents claim that Jackson asked her on a date after talking for a while, but that it should take place in his apartment because he might be “recognized from his time on ‘The Bachelorette'”.

After Jackson agreed to meet at his home, Jackson allegedly pressured her to have sex. After telling him to stop, he reportedly continued by force.

Jackson’s representative did not immediately respond for comment.

In 2017, when Jackson starred in “Bachelor in Paradise,” production was shut down for “alleged misconduct” and a formal investigation was launched into Jackson’s hot and heavy behavior in a pool scene with Corinne Olympios.

While an internal investigation found no evidence of wrongdoing, neither Jackson nor Olympios returned to the show once filming resumed.
