The investigation into the alleged sexual assault between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson while filming Bachelor in Paradise is officially over, according to TMZ!
As we previously reported, Warner Bros. put the show on hold after a producer reported an incident between the contestants that was seemingly construed as sexual assault. To be specific, it was claimed Corinne was too drunk to consent to having oral sex with DeMario.
Well, Warner Bros.’ “sexual misconduct” investigation is apparently now complete and they’ve come to the conclusion that there was no sexual assault!
TMZ‘s sources say DeMario’s lawyer even met with the company’s lawyers on Monday, where he was told of their findings. No mention on if Corinne’s lawyers were given the same treatment. Plus on top of all this, it’s said Bachelor in Paradise will actually resume filming in Mexico with the show airing in the summer!
The pool footage between Corinne and DeMario will not air.
Warner Bros. released the following statement on Tuesday:
“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.”
Interesting they didn’t mention police being involved!
We’ll continue to update you with any more details!
