An investigation on DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ has revealed that no sexual assault took place on the night in question, and the show will resume taping.
If you didn’t hear already, Warner Bros. paused production after a producer claimed Olympios was under the influence to the point where she was not able to give consent to oral sex while in the pool with Jackson.
However, TMZ reported videos showed proof of Corinne being “fully engaged” throughout what was claimed to be a sexual assault.
Now that parties of both DeMario and the Warner Bros. have met, they have thoroughly gone through the videos and come to the conclusion that DeMario did not commit the act.
Filming will pick up where they left off, but they are uncertain on whether the show will include DeMario and Corinne in its upcoming airing this summer.
What is certain is that the swimming pool scene where the alleged assault was claimed to have taken place will not be airing or released for that matter.
Here is the Warner Bros.’ official statement:
“As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico,” Warner Bros. said in a statement Tuesday (via THR). “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.”
