Bachelor’s infamous troublemakers strike again! After only a week of filming in Sayulita, Mexico, ABC has decided to pull the plug on Bachelor In Paradise Season 4, following “allegations of misconduct.” While the network is still investigating the matter, a source told Entertainment Tonight that the abrupt suspension of the show was due to a hot and heavy pool sesh between Bachelor villains DeMario Jackson — who was a contestant on Rachel Lindsay’s current season of The Bachelorette — and Corinne Olympios — who vied for Nick Viall’s heart on the last season of The Bachelor.

"DeMario was in the pool," the source said. "Next thing you know, Corinne comes over and hops on his lap. They start talking and joking." However, the insider claims things quickly escalated between the two, and they began to get increasingly passionate with one another. According to another report, the reality stars started to engage in lots of “intense rubbing.”

"Everyone is just going about their business. Cameras are rolling. Producers are everywhere," the source told ET. "That's when a 'third party' felt uncomfortable, claiming misconduct in the workplace. As of right now, production of Paradise is suspended indefinitely. And they are sending everyone home and telling everyone else to stay home. DeMario and Corinne got sent home soon after."

According to the insider, the third party who made the complaint was a producer of the show.

Following the incident, the rest of the cast was also sent home. They were spotted by fans at the Puerta Vallarta airport in Mexico on Sunday morning.

The show was scheduled to premiere on Aug. 8, but it's now unclear if/when it will begin filming again. While the future of BIP remains up in the air, Warner Brothers released the following statement, addressing the show’s impromptu suspension: “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.”
