Corinne Olympios' BF Speaks Out About 'BiP'
The past two weeks have been a complete whirlwind of news and rumors for Bachelor fans, and now that Bachelor in Paradise will officially resume filming, it doesn't seem like it's going to slow down anytime soon. Although Warner Bros. has announced that its internal investigation did "not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member, Corinne Olympios is still working with lawyer Martin Singer. And on Wednesday, Olympios' boyfriend spoke out about BiP, making it clear that he'll be supporting her every step of the way.
In an interview with E! News, her boyfriend — whose name is Jordan Gielchinsky — revealed that he and Olympios have been in each other's lives for a very long time, and it doesn't seem like that's about to change. Despite the fact that he did offer a little insight into their relationship, he also mentioned that he won't be making a full comment into the situation until Olympios' lawyer is finished conducting his own investigation.
"I have known Corinne for over 10 years and as a friend or boyfriend, she will continue to receive my unwavering loyalty and support until I decide that there is a legitimate reason not to give it. Anything the public may perceive that is coming from me is pure speculation. There is an ongoing inquiry that must follow a course to its conclusion before I can fully comment."
And even though he's been thrust into the public eye amid the allegations surrounding Olympios, DeMario Jackson (who had also hired a lawyer and claimed his character was "assassinated" with "false claims and malicious allegations" in a statement), and BiP in general, Gielchinsky said he hasn't been keeping up with what the internet is saying. He continued:
"I pay very little attention to the media and try to ignore all the conjecture surrounding my relationship with Corinne. The only two people who know the true disposition of our relationship is Corinne and I."
On Tuesday, Warner Brothers announced that it had concluded its investigation without finding that any misconduct had occurred, and released the following statement:
As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly. Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy. Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants
Later the same day, Olympios lawyer, Singer, added his own statement:
“It needs to be made crystal clear that production of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BIP producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone. It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”
It is unclear what will happen next for Olympios and Gielchinsky, or if any of these recent developments will change as Bachelor in Paradise resumes filming. But fortunately, it sounds like she can count on his support no matter what the future holds.
