Corinne Olympios' Legal Team To Continue Its Own Bachelor In Paradise Investigation

A lawyer for Corinne Olympios says his legal team will continue to investigate allegations that Olympios was sexually assaulted during production on the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise.

"It needs to be made clear that production of Bachelor in Paradise was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BiP producers and crew member on the set," Martin Singer told People magazine in a statement released on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, shortly after Warner Brothers' internal investigation had wrapped. "It was not shut down due to an 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," the statement continued. "Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard."

Scandal erupted last week amid reports that Warner Bros. was conducting an internal investigation into claims that Olympios had been sexually assaulted during an alcohol-fueled hookup in a pool with fellow contestant DeMario Jackson. Subsequently, production on the show came to a halt and contestants were sent packing.

Warner Bros. eventually concluded on June 20, 2017, that no sexual assault had taken place.

"As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly," the statement read. "Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed." 

The statement continued, "Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy. Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show's policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants."

Production will reportedly continue on Bachelor in Paradise now that the investigation has wrapped. Its scheduled to premiere this summer, according to reports.
