Who is DeMario Jackson?
DeMario Jackson was a former contestant on the 13th Season of The Bachelorette.
He was disqualified in week 2 when it was revealed he had a girlfriend at home.
DeMario later appeared on the 4th season of Bachelor in Paradise which he quit a week later after allegations of misconduct.
DeMario Jackson currently has been sued by two separate women for sexual assault.
According to the court documents, two women whose names are currently not known claim that DeMario Jackson used his status as a celebrity to ‘lure the unsuspecting plaintiffs’ into a sense of security, claiming he knew exactly what he was doing.
The first lady said she met DeMario on a dating app, and after a few dates, she allowed him to spend the night in February 2018, after he became allegedly drunk.
According to her, She told DeMario nothing sexual would happen between them that night but claims he was persistent, allegedly pinning her to the bed and sexually assaulting her, she says she was fearing for her life at that moment.
The second woman allegedly met DeMario in April 2019, chatting sparingly on social media at first. A year later, he asked her out on a date, adding it would have to take place at his apartment as he wanted to avoid being recognized if they went out.
The docs say he pressured her into having sex, which she reluctantly agreed to, then told him to stop — but he allegedly continued, forcefully.
Other than sexual assault, the 2 women are suing DeMario for false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. They’re seeking unspecified damages.
DeMario Jackson has not responded to these sues yet, the story is still developing.
