Bachelor in Paradise: Corinne Olympios' lawyer pledges to continue 'our own investigation'

Warner Bros. said their own investigation concluded no misconduct occurred

Posted on

Despite Warner Bros. declaring no misconduct occurred on the Bachelor in Paradise set, the lawyer for contestant Corinne Olympios isn’t backing down.

Earlier Tuesday, the studio announced that its investigation had concluded and the show would resume filming, upon finding that “the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member.” Now, Martin Singer, the attorney for Olympios, is responding to the findings and promising their own investigation.

“It needs to be made crystal clear that production of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BIP producers and crew members on the set,” he said in a statement. “It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone. It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”

The abrupt shutdown of filming Bachelor in Paradise, the Bachelor spin-off, was the result of an alleged sexual encounter between Olympios and DeMario Jackson, who recently told Inside Edition, “I feel like the truth will be able to come out in those videos.”

Last week, in her first public statement, Olympios said in a statement to PEOPLE,  “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.”

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.”
