Corinne Olympios Breaks Her Silence Amid The Probe Into Bachelor In Paradise‘s ‘Sexual Misconduct’ Scandal: ‘I Am A Victim’

corinne olympios releases statement

Corinne Olympios has broken her silence and is coming out swinging against Bachelor In Paradise.

As you surely know, the Bachelor spin-off’s production has been indefinitely suspended after a producer filed a complaint about an alleged sexual encounter between the blonde reality TV starlet and her BIP costar, DeMario Jackson — an encounter where the 24-year-old may’ve been too intoxicated to give consent. Although there are conflicting reports about what exactly went down between Miz Olympios and Rachel Lindsay‘s cast off, Warner Brothers is currently investigating the on set “misconduct.”

Nonetheless, Nick Viall‘s ex appears to be ready to take on the ABC dating competition as she’s hired powerhouse attorney Marty Singer. On her decision to seek legal counsel, Corinne explained in a recent statement:

“I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production.”

How awful. She continued:

“As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.”

We’re glad to see that Olympios is focused on getting help at this particularly troubling time. Regardless, we bet DeMario and those involved with BIP are sweating bullets right about now. As we previously reported, Jackson has been mulling over the idea of hiring a lawyer — despite claiming the show’s footage will clear him of any wrongdoing.
