DeMario Jackson is finally breaking his silence after being accused of sexually assaulting Corinne Olympios during the filming of Bachelor in Paradise season four.

"It's unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations," the 30-year-old said in a statement to E!. "I will be taking swift and appropriate legal action until my name is cleared and, per the advice of legal counsel, will be seeking all available remedies entitled to me under the laws."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, production was shut down due to "allegations of misconduct" during an alleged pool hookup between Jackson and costar Olympios.

Olympios has come forward with claims she’s a “victim” in the scandal and his since released a statement through her new publicist and attorney:

“I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although 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,” she said.

“As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.”

Sources close to DeMario exclusively told Radar he's innocent of any crime.
