Before a brief stint on “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor In Paradise”, DeMario Jackson was just an “up-and-coming actor” desperate for a date with Britney Spears.
In a resurfaced video from 2008, Jackson can be seen and heard asking out the pop star.
“Britney, f**k it, you need a black dude. Real talk!” Jackson can be heard shouting.
“I need a black dude?” Spears responded. “I like black dudes. You guys are cool.”
But the encounter between the future reality star and Spears didn’t end there. Jackson repeatedly bags Spears for a date, saying “take down my number,” and “My name is DeMario Jackson. I’m an up-and-coming actor. I want to be like you. I want everybody to see me on TV. Real talk. You’re dope… My mom loves you, and she said ‘tell Britney. ‘”
While the “Piece of Me” singer didn’t hand out her number, she did tell him to reach out on MySpace.
“Can I have a hug? Can I just have a hug for TV?” he bags. “You should really take down my number. Like, you know what I’m saying? We should f**king hang out.”
Jackson more recently made headlines along with “BIP” co-star Corrine Olympios after a misconduct complaint was filed against production, which caused filming to halt. Warner Bros. found no wrongdoing and production resumed. Jackson and Olympios did not return to the set.
The new season of the hit reality show premieres Aug. 14.
