As Corinne lawyers up amid an investigation into cast member DeMario Jackson‘s alleged sexual misconduct, another co-star has stepped forward to accuse the reality star of not telling the truth of what transpired on set. Jasmine Goode claims Corinne was actually the one who instigated the reportedly explicit encounter that shut down production of the ABC show.
“The day of the incident under investigation, Corinne did not display any change in behavior from what was observed by the cast on her season of The Bachelor,” she tells E! News. “Corinne forced herself on three male cast members, when they were unable to consent, in addition to engaging with DeMario. After the incident everything seemed fine. There was no mention about being hurt. However, when producers tried to cut her off from drinking, she got upset and said, ‘Watch, watch what I’m gonna do.'”
“The cast is not encouraged or forced to engage in any behaviors or to drink alcohol,” she adds. “Producers check in to make sure the cast is comfortable and accommodate to the needs requested.”
However, another source says Jasmine’s account is inaccurate, telling the publication that Corinne “may have been flirty but did not force herself sexually on anyone.”
“Jasmine and Corinne were friends,” an insider shares. “Jasmine, who was also drinking that night, knew how drunk Corinne was and tried to help Corinne down the stairs. Corinne fell and busted her knee open in front of Jasmine. The next day, Jasmine came in to check on Corinne and was telling her how intoxicated she was the night before and joked about how she scratched her elbow when she was trying to help her. Corinne and Jasmine’s friendship was fine until Jasmine found out production was suspended.”
“Jasmine wasn’t present when the DeMario incident happened,” the source continues. “She was doing her own thing with men down on the beach. She hooked up with three guys that night.”
As previously reported, production of Bachelor in Paradise was halted indefinitely after a field producer filed a complaint claiming Corinne was too drunk to consent DeMario when the two got physical on the set. Warner Bros. since launched an internal investigation into the matter.
Earlier this week, Corinne called herself a “victim” who suffered “physical and emotional trauma” from the tryst, saying in a statement, “I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production. As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality.”
