Bachelor In Paradise Production Suspended Over 'Misconduct'

Bachelor In Paradise Production Suspended Over 'Misconduct'”

Jackson reportedly believed that the encounter was consensual, while sources close to Olympios allegedly said she was blackout drunk during filming and therefore wasn't able to consent to the encounter.

DeMario was a recent castoff of Rachel Lindsay's season of Bachelorette which is now airing in the U.S. He was sent home in the second episode when his girlfriend showed up to a group date and told the cast members that she and DeMario were still in a relationship.

According to TMZ, a hookup between Olympios and Jackson was thought up by producers in charge of the show.

Warner Bros., the production company behind the show, announced the decision in a statement. Meanwhile, a source told People that "a producer allegedly witnessed a drunken sexual encounter between two cast members", and that it's "not clear if charges have been brought against the cast member involved". Several outlets name contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios as the people involved, though TMZ notes there are different versions of the events that took place. The ABC series stopped filming during the first week after misconduct allegations began to fly and an investigation began.

"The cast is basically in the dark about what happened and they are not being told anything", the insider revealed.

Long-time Bachelor Nation fans might've realized something was up when current Paradise contestants like Corinne Olympios started posting on their social media accounts - a big no-no for folks in the midst of filming.

The cast was announced last week with familiar faces from Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, including Corinne Olympios, Taylor Nolan and Lacey Mark, set to star in the season airing August 8. "As of right now, production of Paradise is suspended indefinitely, and they are sending everyone home and telling everyone else to stay home". "Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action", says the statement from Warner Bros.
