Bachelor Nation was taken by surprise when Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson publicly reconciled during the studio taping of Bachelor in Paradise. The two hadn’t spoken to each other prior to this interview, so we really didn’t know what to expect.
What we did know at the time was that filming halted earlier in Season 4 of Paradise, due to a potentially nonconsensual encounter between Olympios and Jackson. After thorough investigation, Warner Bros. deemed Jackson clear of any misconduct. Many cast members came out in support of both parties involved, but Olympios and Jackson both voiced their difficulties in moving on from the controversy.
We’re happy to see that Olympios and Jackson seem to be helping each other get back to normal life, as the two have formed a new friendship. Unsurprisingly, their time spent together has sparked numerous rumors and backlash. Olympios wants to set the record straight on the details on their friendship and, most importantly, wants everyone to “get over it.”
They were photographed in Disneyland together
The rumors started when Olympios and Jackson were seen spending time together in Disneyland in September 2017. The two were holding hands and smiling while walking around the park, clearly trying to put their controversy behind them.
They had to have expected an outburst of attention, but Olympios wasn’t too happy with some of the assumptions being made.
