Two different women have accused DeMario Jackson, a former contestant on “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise,” of sexual assault.
According to court documents acquired by TMZ, the two women, who both filed as Jane Does, claim DeMario used his celebrity profile to “lure the naïve plaintiffs” into a false feeling of security. They assert that he was fully aware of what he was doing.
The first lady asserts that she met DeMario through a dating app; following a few encounters, she allegedly let him stay the night in February 2018 after he grew intoxicated.
She claims that she told Demario that night that they wouldn’t engage in any sexual activity, but he persisted and allegedly pinned her to the bed before assaulting her sexually. She claims that at the time, she was terrified for her life.
The second woman is said to have first spoken to DeMario via social media in April 2019. A year later, he asked her on a date and specified that it would take place at his apartment because he didn’t want to be seen if they went out.
According to the documents, she grudgingly consented to having intercourse with him under coercion before telling him to stop, but he allegedly persisted in doing so.
The two ladies are suing DeMario for deliberate infliction of emotional distress and wrongful detention in addition to sexual assault. They are requesting unnamed damages.
