    Close to one week after Warner Bros. cleared "Bachelor in Paradise" and its producers of any misconduct, Jackson spoke out for the first time in a sit-down interview about what happened in Mexico with co-star Corinne Olympios.

    At the same time, he's opening up about how much the media scrutiny and allegations affected his family.

    "It was stressful. For me, mostly for my mother," Jackson says. "It's hard to see your mom cry every single day. It was very difficult."

    He continued, "My dad, he kept me extremely strong and kept me grounded and humble but having your mom cry every day for something that you know you didn't do."

    An internal investigation was launched after a sexual encounter between Jackson and Olympios on the first day of production led two producers to file misconduct complaints, questioning whether Olympios was able to give consent.

    Ultimately, Warner Bros. found the footage did not support misconduct allegations. Filming for the new season just resumed in Mexico.

    As for Olympios and her legal team, they plan on pursuing a separate investigation.

    The three-part interview with Jackson airs Monday and Tuesday night at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. on E! News.
