Raven Gates, who appeared on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, took to Facebook today to reveal that she is standing by her friend DeMario Jackson, RadarOnline.com can exclusively confirm.

"My mom raised me to speak the truth even when I would be scrutinized or judged for it," Gates started out. "But right is right and wrong is wrong. I stand 100% with my friend Jasmine Goode. As an eyewitness myself, a friend of Corinne's, and as a woman I would have stepped in if she needed me."

"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," Goode said. "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.'"

Gates went on to say in her Facebook post that she was "physically there as this so called 'incident' happened."

"I am SICK to my stomach for the pain DeMario is going through," she continued. "I love Corinne but she was VERY COHERENT that day."

"After this incident she proceeded to make out with 3 other men, straddling them, and jumping on them," she wrote. "I witnessed this myself. Along with her saying that her boyfriend was going to be mad at her."

As Radar previously reported, Jackson released a statement saying that his "character and family name have been assassinated and plans to take legal action until his name is cleared."

Insiders told Radar exclusively that Jackson is pleased that his co-stars are standing by him.

Olympios earlier in the week also released a statement calling herself a 'victim.'"  She announced that she would be taking legal action against the alleged sexual assault that took place while filming Bachelor In Paradise.

She hired high-profile Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer to represent her.

Gates has not yet responded to Radar's calls for comment.
