More upsetting details emerge out of paradise.
As we’ve been reporting, filming for season four of Bachelor In Paradise was abruptly suspended last week after an alleged drunken sexual encounter between contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios left a producer uncomfortable enough to file a complaint and spark an internal investigation. It’s said Corinne may have been too intoxicated to give consent.
Now, an anonymous crew member is coming forward with his or her version of events.
Warning: the account described below is extremely disturbing and very serious.
“Corinne and Demario found out when they arrived in Mexico that the storyline would involve the two of them hooking up so they decided to hang out and get better acquainted over drinks.”
Apparently it didn’t take long before things got out of hand — and Corinne is said to have gone “limp” and “appeared to be unconscious” during the alleged pool hookup:
“Soon they decided to go swimming and when they climbed into the Jacuzzi, they were both loaded. Corinne proceeded to remove her bathing suit and things got increasingly sexual. There was hugging and kissing and touching, but before long, she seemed to go limp and was sliding under water. DeMario kept trying to hold her up and at the same time he appeared to be having intercourse with her. After he finished ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ which only lasted a few seconds ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ he lifted her out of the water and laid her on the cement, where he proceeded to have oral sex with her. She appeared to be unconscious. At that point some of the crew came out and carried her off to her room. She was limp and seemed unable to walk on her own.”
Wow. So scary.
Keep in mind, a source connected to DeMario previously told TMZ that he wasn’t able to have intercourse due to the amount of alcohol he consumed, but it was said that he performed oral sex.
The crew member admitted to feeling “deeply disturbed…not just at what happened, but over the way it was handled”:
“One of the things that really disturbed people was that no one called a doctor or paramedic, which some felt they should have. Instead someone made the decision to just let her sleep it off. When Corinne awoke the next morning, people began filling her in on what happened the night before, because she claimed to have absolutely no recollection of what transpired.”
Since the highly-publicized suspension of the ABC show, the source revealed that the Mexico resort was turned into a crime scene — and doctors and psychologists were brought in to interview everyone about what happened. Obviously the cast and crew were told not to speak to anyone about the incident.
The member of the production team went on to confirm reports that Corinne has since sought legal counsel:
“Corinne is preparing to file a law suit because she feels she was not protected by the show’s producers. And she ended up flying home to Miami after she was examined and interviewed. She was totally distraught and even after being told what happened, she insisted she had no recollection of the events.”
Yesterday, the rest of the crew returned to Los Angeles under the impression that the show would not be returning “because the brand will be too tarnished to move forward”:
“There were also rumors early on that they were going to scrap the show and offer Corinne a show of her own, or try and switch to filming a hurry — up wedding between last year’s contestants, Evan Bass and Carly Waddell who are engaged, but in the end they abandoned both ideas, paid off the crew, and sent them home. This was a terrible thing to happen on a show that has been so successful until now. And you can bet this is far from being over.”
This is clearly very serious!
With all of the speculation swirling, we hope the complete truth will come to light soon.
