'Bachelor in Paradise' Cleared of Misconduct Allegations

After shutting down production on Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season in Mexico, Warner Bros. cleared the show and its producers of any misconduct.

Warner Bros. said in a statement to E! News:

"Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. 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."

A producer complained about contestants Corinne Olympios 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.

After Olympios hired a legal team to "seek justice" in the sexual misconduct allegations, Bachelor in Paradise contestant Jasmine Goode said Olympios "forced herself on three male cast members when they were unable to consent."

Goode told E! News in an exclusive statement:

"The  day of the incident under investigation, Corinne did not display any change in behavior from what was observed by the cast on her season of The Bachelor. Corinne forced herself on three male cast members, when they were unable to consent, in addition to engaging with DeMario [Jackson]. After the incident everything seemed fine. There was no mention about being hurt."

Warner Bros. most recent statement revealed production on the fourth season will resume with new policies in place to ensure the "safety and  security" of everyone involved in filming.
