“Bachelor in Paradise” producers are no stranger to drama but a private investigation launched by contestant Corinne Olympios into allegations of sexual assault on-set may be more than even they know how to handle.
Olympios, the Jewish contestant at the center of the drama, vowed to pursue her own investigation into the matter after Warner Bros.’ investigation found no evidence of sexual misconduct.
Olympios’ attorney, Marty Singer, made a statement to PeopleTuesday evening.
“It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrongdoing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”
Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that the show would resume shooting. It’s as of yet unclear how being at the center of a roiling sexual assault investigation will affect contestants’ ability to let loose and fall in love with one another.
It’s probably safe to say Olympios won’t be returning for Season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
