Bachelor in Paradise shut down amidst allegations of sexual assault

ABC stops Bachelor in Paradise season 4 over misconduct allegations

Bachelor in Paradise Has Ceased Production Due to 'Misconduct' Allegations

According to the source, the trouble came when a producer witnessed racy conduct between contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.

Bachelor in Paradise - which was supposed to premiere on August 8 - had just started filming the upcoming season in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, and prior to the alleged pool incident, a source told ET that the cast was day drinking and "having a good time".

E! News reports that a source close to the program says the "BIP" is "totally done for this season and possibly forever".

A report suggests that Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson's alleged "soft porn" act during the show's filming forced the show producer to lodge a complaint, resulting in the suspension of production for the show's fourth season.

The incident allegedly occurred between Olympios and Jackson, who had been encouraged by production to spend time together.

Contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios got a little too hot for the production crew.

ABC Entertainment Group President Channing Dungey told EW in a statement, "Warner Horizon produces the show so we have to wait for them to conclude their investigation before any next steps".

An unidentified contestant from the show shared that two additional cast members saw the incident. In a statement to Us, Warner Bros. said they're "aware of allegations of misconduct" and that they're "conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations".

"People are pissed, and not just at DeMario". Not only have the cameras stopped rolling, but the entire cast was reportedly sent home from Mexico.

"The cast is basically in the dark about what happened and they are not being told anything", a source told Us Weekly. "So, I'm angry at the show, and everyone else is too".

The spinoff follows previous contestants from the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, who convene at a resort in Sayulita, Mexico on the chance they might find love with one another.
