During a candid interview with E! News on Monday night, DeMario claimed that after hooking up with Corinne in Paradise, she never acted upset, angry or even standoffish. DeMario's account is consistent with Warner Bros. determining from its investigation there was no evidence of sexual misconduct or assault.
However, Corinne has claimed she blacked out during that evening in Paradise from excessive alcohol and is a "victim" who's currently dealing with "physical and emotional trauma" from the incident.
"The next morning, it was like the wildest morning," DeMario told E! News, "because everybody wakes up like, 'Wow!' Hungover, dying. First of all, I see Corinne. We were talking, I gave her a hug, and then we all went up and got breakfast together."
DeMario -- who was reportedly fired from his job and said in a June 14 statement his character has been "assassinated with false claims and malicious allegations" -- noted that Corinne was part of the conversation that morning and seemed just fine.
"We were all talking about how the previous day was. She wasn't mad. We were hanging out. Actually, I offered her a shot but she said that production had cut her off from drinking for the day," DeMario said.
DeMario claimed that Corinne was actually the "aggressor" in their hookup and that she got naked before entering the pool with him at the Mexican resort. He also alleged that she placed her "lady parts" right on his face to begin oral sex when he was sitting at the edge of the pool, a swift move even sober girls probably wouldn't be able to accomplish.
DeMario repeatedly insisted during his interview with E! News that Corinne did not seem or act drunk -- that she wasn't slurring her words or stumbling around.
"There was a part where I actually heard she had a busted knee. And [her pal Jasmine Goode] actually debunked that the other night. Jasmine said, 'We all fell coming down the stairs' -- me, her and [Raven Gates]. We all went to medical and it's all been documented," DeMario explained, referencing reports Corinne fell down because she was too intoxicated to walk or stand.
DeMario made it known that Corinne was definitely wild and promiscuous that night, however, he stood by the fact she allegedly initiated it all. Both Jasmine and Raven recently said on-the-record that Corinne forced herself on three other men the day she hooked up with DeMario.
"Her and [Derek Peth] had their little thing. She came up, jumped in his arms, and slammed him to the ground, like all over him. And there were reports of two other guys, but I didn't personally see the other two," DeMario said.
Bachelor in Paradise reportedly filmed for three days in early June before a producer pulled DeMario aside to address an issue.
"He was like, 'Take off your mic.' And I was like, 'Oh sh-t. Oh sh-t. Oh sh-t. What the f-ck?!' Like straight up. I was angry. He goes, 'Here's what I need you to do. I'm going to need you to bow out. So [Chris Harrison] and the crew -- you love them and you're thankful, however, you're not here for the right reasons,'" DeMario told E! News.
"I'm like, 'What the f-ck?! Straight up?' And he was like, 'I can't tell you what I know, but it's going to be bad if you don't leave tonight. I'm like, 'What the f-ck?!' I'm thinking, like, 'What do you mean it's going to be bad?'"
DeMario said he had no idea what was going on, but by the time he got home, he figured it was time to hire a lawyer.
"I got a call from a producer who was like, 'Hey, sh-t's about to get real, real fast,'" DeMario recalled.
Production on Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season has resumed, and Season 4 will still air this summer on ABC.
