Bachelor in Paradise contestant Corinne Olympios hired a legal team to "seek justice" in the sexual misconduct allegations that shut down production of the show's fourth season.
A producer complained about contestants Corinne and DeMario Jackson engaging in sexual acts in a swimming pool during filming. "DeMario says Corinne then suggested they retreat to the pool, with the cameras rolling. They took off their clothes, started making out and 'rubbing, touching and fingering,'" TMZ reports.
"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."
"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."
