Corinne Olympios Breaks Her Silence on 'Bachelor in Paradise' Controversy
Bachelor nation’s Corinne Olympios has come forward with her first public statement following the news this weekend that there was “misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise” and production was suspended.
In a statement sent to Glamour, the fan favorite, who competed on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, reveals that she was involved in the incident, but she “has little memory of the night.” Below, her statement in full:
Olympios has hired top Hollywood attorney Marty Singer, as well as public relations executive Stan Rosenfield (who former Bachelor Chris Soules hired in the wake of the fatal collision he was involved with earlier this spring).
UPDATE: Bachelorette contestant DeMario Jackson, who previously was unnamed in the investigation (though he was rumored to be involved), spoke out for the first time hours after Olympios on Tuesday evening.
In an exclusive with E!, Jackson released the following statement through his publicist, Eve Sarkisyan-Nunn:
Warner Bros. (the studio behind the Bachelor franchise) released a statement on Sunday, June 11, saying, “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.”
We’ll update this post as more information becomes available.
