Bachelor Nation! Here’s the latest on Bachelor In Paradise.

Almost 10 days after announcing production had officially halted due to an investigation involving Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, Warner Bros. has made a 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.” 

 

In response to Warner Bros. statement, Corinne's lawyer gave the following 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.” He continues, “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.”

Chris Harrison, longtime host of The Bachelor Franchise, also chimed in with this tweet…

Whether Corinne and DeMario will continue to be part of the BIP cast remains unknown.
