What went wrong in paradise??
As we reported, production of season four of Bachelor In Paradise was abruptly suspended after a producer came forward with “allegations of misconduct” between contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.
Reports are varying, but it’s certainly clear something serious went down between the two respective villains of their former seasons — something that was serious enough for a show-runner to place a formal complaint with Warner Brothers after reviewing footage of a drunken pool hookup.
“[They were] drinking all day, having a good time… the guys and girls were bopping around, talking to everyone, trying to make connections.”
“DeMario was in the pool. Next thing you know, Corinne comes over and hops on his lap. They start talking and joking. Everyone is just going about their business. Cameras are rolling. Producers are everywhere. That’s when a ‘third party’ felt uncomfortable, claiming misconduct in the workplace. As of right now, production of Paradise is suspended indefinitely. And they are sending everyone home and telling everyone else to stay home. DeMario and Corinne got sent home soon after.”
Sources who have supposedly spoken with DeMario since the alleged incident told TMZ that Corinne approached DeMario at the bar, where she “jumped in his lap and started making out with him.” According to his side of the story, there was “intense rubbing” and the two retreated to the pool.
Next, the report says DeMario remembered the two were making out, “rubbing, touching, and fingering.” That’s when he claims Corinne “put her genitals in his face and he began licking.” He insists he wasn’t able to engage in sexual intercourse because of the amount of alcohol he had consumed.
Not surprisingly, this detail in DeMario’s account is a point of contention with other witnesses. We think it’s fair to assume there’s more to the story.
It’s said Corinne and DeMario were told before filming that their relationship would be a story line for the dating reality series — and Rachel Lindsay‘s ex has since reached out to make amends with Nick Viall‘s castoff:
“DeMario was trying to reach Corinne via email, Instagram and Facebook for a few days. Finally, [he] got a hold of her, they exchanged numbers and they’ve been talking. They are both speaking and on good terms.
In the meantime, the rest of the cast was sent back home while ABC investigates what went down — and they were spotted by a fan in the Houston airport over the weekend:
This is so crazy!
