Corinne Olympios has confirmed the rumors that she will not be returning to Bachelor in Paradise. As OK! readers know, the ABC show recently resumed filming after production was halted due to “allegations of misconduct” following a drunken sexual encounter between Corinne and DeMario Jackson. But after an investigation, Warner Bros. concluded that the tape of the alleged incident “does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member.” While Corinne initially hired lawyer Marty Singer to continue looking into the incident on her behalf, she has now announced plans to end the investigation, as well as her involvement with Bachelor in Paradise altogether.
“My intent over the past few weeks has been to learn and understand what happened on June 4,” Corinne’s statement began. “While I never filed complaints or accusations against anyone associated with Bachelor in Paradise, my team and I felt it was very important to be thorough in getting to the bottom of what had occurred.”
“I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that transpired,” she continued.
“My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction,” Corinne shared. “I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor in Paradise.”

“While I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant on The Bachelor, and while I was invited to return to Bachelor in Paradise when production resumed, I respectfully made the decision not to return,” Corinne admitted.
“I greatly appreciate my fans’ concerns for my well-being, but I think it is best if I keep any further thoughts private for now,” she finished.
