Earlier: Filming for Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 was previously suspended after a producer reportedly raised concerns about an alleged sexual encounter between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. People reported that a female contestant allegedly may have been too drunk to consent. TMZ claimed that the female contestant was Olympios. At the time, Warner Bros. stated that they were conducting an internal investigation in response and would take appropriate action when its findings were complete.
Three days after the reports emerged that the show had been shut down, Olympios released a statement to Bustle that read,
Jackson also released a statement to Bustle later that same day:
Given the many unconfirmed rumors that trailed the incident, it’s impossible to piece together exactly what happened. The only confirmed findings of the investigation are what have been shared by Warner Bros. in the statement above: that "the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member" and that the tape does not show "that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy."
Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 will premiere this summer.
