As we previously reported, production on "Bachelor in Paradise" has been shut down amidst sexual misconduct allegations. The first reports claimed DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios had "oral relations" after plenty of drinking. And cameras were rolling. Now, sources are saying Corinne may have been too drunk to consent. Well, let's be clear, the show won't even confirmed that Corinne was involved, but other sources do.
A source with the show explains, "the show absolutely values the primacy of consent, and this instance it appears as though conduct allegedly occurred without the proper consent having been given." Apparently, fellow constants are also angry that no one behind-the-scenes stepped in sooner. As the story goes, everyone was a bit sloppy with the drink, Corinne went and sat on his lap, they started laughing...smooching...and well, the rest hasn't been confirmed.
“People are pissed, and not just at DeMario. We’re pissed that this whole thing happened,” an unnamed contestant says. “They could have seen that she was drinking too much and that he was taking advantage. They could have stopped this before it got this far. But they decided to let it go, and let it happen, and see what happened? So, I’m angry at the show, and everyone else is too.” It seems a producer IS responsible for the complaint being filed at all.
- And here's where it gets very itchy: According to TMZ, Corrine has already lawyered up - and others are saying that the tape proves she was "lucid and fully engaged."
