Corinne Olympios ends ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ investigation, won’t return to show
By Chloe Melas
Corinne Olympios says she wants to move on from the “Bachelor in Paradise” scandal that prompted producers to suspend production of the show earlier this month.
The former “Bachelor” star released a statement on Thursday stating that she is satisfied with her legal team’s investigation of an incident that involving her and fellow “Bachelor in Paradise” contestant DeMario Jackson.
“My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction,” she said in a statement obtained by CNN. “I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of ‘Bachelor In Paradise.'”
Olympios said she declined an invitation to return to the show. She also said she launched her own investigation because she needed to get to “the bottom of what had occurred” on June 4, when an incident between Jackson and Olympios prompted a producer to lodge a complaint alleging misconduct on the set.
“I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that transpired,” Olympios said in her statement.
Warner Bros., which produces the show, looked into the incident. They have said that their investigation did not produce any evidence of misconduct. Warner Bros. would not comment on Olympio’s statement.
Filming of the show resumed in Sayulita, Mexico, over the weekend.
Jackson recently spoke to E! News and said that the incident being investigated was sexual in nature and that Olympios was the “aggressor.”
