She speaks. After weeks of silence from Corinne Olympios, the Bachelor in Paradise star is finally speaking out after a clip from her encounter with DeMario Jackson was released in a new promo for the reality dating show.
Responding to DeMario's claims he was falsely accused, the blonde beauty called out ABC for teasing the misleading footage in the new trailer for BiP. "As DeMario is well aware, the footage that was in the promo was not of the encounter that caused production to be shut down," Corinne's rep said in a statement to Us Weekly. "The encounter that caused production to be shut down took place much later in the day, and it was in a hot tub, not a pool."

She continued, "Corinne has never leveled any accusations at DeMario." Earlier, DeMario, applauded the network's decision to release the controversial video. "I'm glad footage of that day is being shown. ... This is a victory for all men who have been falsely accused," he told Entertainment Tonight.
In the trailer, contestants can be seen watching the NSFW interaction, which prompted a temporary halt of production on the popular show. "The whole cast was just shocked and confused,'" contestant Danielle Maltby says in the latest trailer. "Are Corinne and DeMario OK? All we know is that we aren't filming, so what the f--k is happening?"

Previously, DeMario, 30, shared his side of the story and accused Corinne, 24, of being the aggressor in the situation. "[We were] kissing, rubbing, touching. It's nothing too sexual yet," he told E! News. "Things got wild because it was more her being the aggressor, which was sexy...When you have a very attractive girl telling you what she wants, it's like a very, like, 'Wow, OK! This is hot. This is very...I like it.'"
He went on to provide even more graphic details of their hookup, which ABC has confirmed will not be shown in its entirety when the series returns August 14. "I get out of the pool, and I have my legs in the pool, and I'm just hanging out...This is when she gets up out of the pool and puts her lady parts right on my face," he added. "She straddled me, like put her...literally smack dab right there," dramatically putting his hand to his face.
