"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," Jasmine told E! News of the villain from Nick Viall's The Bachelor edition who bragged about her "platinum vagine," led with her sexuality and even stripped her bikini top off during a group date.
When in Paradise, "Corinne forced herself on three male cast members, when they were unable to consent, in addition to engaging with DeMario," Jasmine claimed.
"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 friend, who allegedly saw Corinne and DeMario's sexual activity in the pool that prompted a producer to file a complaint with Warner Bros. for alleged "misconduct" on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, had also told insisted Corinne was only "tipsy" when she hooked up with DeMario and it "wasn't until later in the night that she got really drunk."
According to prior reports, the producer was concerned Corinne could not consent to aggressive PDA with DeMario because she was intoxicated.
"I personally didn't [ask if she had too much to drink] because I thought she was just being the normal girl she usually is," Jasmine told People in a separate interview.
"And Corinne is one of my friends too, and that's what bothers me, because I'm getting a lot of heat now, a bunch of us are, for not taking her side. But the thing is, there really wasn't a side. If someone's getting hurt and you're my friend, I'm going to step in, but what I saw, I didn't see any different than what I normally deal with."
Jasmine and Corinne both competed for Nick on The Bachelor's 21st season earlier this year. They also appeared on an episode of Rachel Lindsay's currently-airing season of The Bachelorette to organize a fun mud-wrestling group date for the guys.
"I just thought she was showing up for TV, honestly," Jasmine said of Corinne. "That's what I got from the moment."
Corinne released a statement on Wednesday saying she is "a victim" and has been dealing with "physical and emotional trauma" from the incident that occurred in Paradise. Corinne said that "as a woman," this is her "worst nightmare" and she had hired "an attorney to obtain justice."
DeMario, on the other hand, argued in his own media statement that his character is being unfairly "assassinated" with false claims and malicious allegations and he intends to take appropriate legal action to clear his name.
Sources close to the former executive recruiter told TMZ earlier this week that Corinne was actually the aggressor in their sexual encounter because she initiated flirting, kissing and touching before allegedly thrusting her genitals in DeMario's face to begin oral sex. A friend of DeMario's also told the Daily Mail that Corinne demanded he strip in the pool.
"Everyone saw them kissing and having fun together. It was known the next day, just two people who hooked up, nothing out of the ordinary," Jasmine told People of DeMario, 30, and Corinne, 25.
"There was other hookups between other cast members like any other season of Paradise, but for some reason this one is being brought to light. Doesn't make sense. To me and everyone else, it just seemed like crazy fun Corinne that we're used to because for the next two days we kept filming."
Corinne's attorney, Marty Singer, is attempting to disprove Jasmine's recent claims, as well as any reports the sexual activity was consensual.
"Several cast members and producers have come forward confirming the facts disclosed by my client," the attorney told E! News.
"If nothing improper occurred on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, why was the production shut down within two days of production? Shutting down production of a television series is almost unheard of. The investigation and subsequent shutting down of the series was initiated based on complaints made by producers on the set of Bachelor in Paradise."
