With Bachelor in Paradise having resumed filming, Corinne Olympios released a statement confirming that she will not be returning to the show’s fourth season.
Olympios was a cast member at the start of the season until production was shut down earlier this month following allegations of sexual misconduct. At that time, the cast was sent home, and Warner Bros. launched an investigation into an alleged sexual encounter between Olympios and fellow contestant DeMario Jackson. On June 20, Warner Bros. announced that its investigation had found no misconduct, and Olympios’ lawyer, Martin Singer, revealed they would conduct their own investigation.
Now, Olympios has released a statement announcing the end of said investigation, along with the fact that she will not be returning to the show. Read her full statement below:
In light of the overwhelming amount of misinformation that has been spread in the media, I want to clarify a few things. My intent over the past few weeks has been to learn and understand what happened on June 4. While I never filed complaints or accusations against anyone associated with Bachelor in Paradise, my team and I felt it was very important to be thorough in getting to the bottom of what had occurred. I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that transpired.
My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction. I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor In Paradise. While I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant on The Bachelor, and while I was invited to return to Bachelor In Paradise when production resumed, I respectfully made the decision not to return.
I understand the media’s interest in this story, and I greatly appreciate my fans’ concerns for my well-being, but I think it is best if I keep any further thoughts private for now.
