Season 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise” has halted production due to “allegations of misconduct” between Corrine Olympios and DeMario jackson, according to ET. While little other than the production halt has been confirmed, rumors regarding the couple have been swirling.

The incident

A source revealed to ET that DeMario Jackson, contestant on Season 13 of “The Bachelorette,” and Corrine Olympios, contestant on Season 21 of “The Bachelor,” got “hot and heavy by the pool” after the cast had been drinking all day.

Amongst rolling cameras and numerous producers, a third party reportedly felt uncomfortable upon watching the couple and claimed “misconduct in the workplace.”

Circulating rumors seem to report that the couple was kissing and touching in the pool, and Corrine soon became limp and began sliding under the water. DeMario appeared to be holding her up while simultaneously having intercourse with her. He ultimately carried her out of the water, laid her down, and had oral sex with her.

After the incident, she was seen stumbling, slurring, wearing her clothes inside out. Details of what actually occurred between the couple, however, are still unclear.

DeMario’s comments

Regarding the incident, Jackson exclusively said to ET, “I have nothing to say. You know, Corinne's an awesome girl and that's all I have to say.” He later sent out a message to his fans thanking them for their support.

A source close to Jackson claimed that DeMario believes he’ll be exonerated once show footage of the incident is analyzed. Other cast members have supposedly commented that the incident was not as criminalizing as is being reported.

Warner Bros.’ statement

Warner Bros. released a statement regarding the show: "We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations," the statement continued.

"Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action."

Chris Harrison, host of “Bachelor in Paradise,” stated that the safety of the cast and crew of the show was what was most important and for that reason filming was suspended. He added that Warner Bros. is working diligently to gather details so they can make a decision about how to proceed, and he hopes that they will be able to return to work soon.

Jackson and Olympios were the first two contestants to be sent home, and the rest of the contestants followed on Sunday. Further details on the event, allegations, and the future of the show are yet to be revealed.
