(Trigger warning: Details of an alleged sexual assault are described below.)
On Sunday, Warner Bros. announced it had suspended filming for "Bachelor in Paradise" due to alleged misconduct on set in Sayulita, Mexico.
Few details were given, but fans quickly learned that a sexual encounter occurred between DeMario Jackson (who recently appeared on Rachel Lindsay's season of "The Bachelorette") and Corrine Olympios (who competed on Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor").
Now more and more pieces are starting to come together, thanks to a detailed account obtained by the Daily Mail.
On Tuesday, the Daily Mail published a disturbing account from a "BIP" crew member who claims a cast member was sexually assaulted — and producers did nothing to stop it.
According the anonymous crew member, the incident occurred after producers suggested Jackson and Olympios hook up on the show:"Corinne and Demario found out when they arrived in Mexico that the storyline would involve the two of them hooking up so they decided to hang out and get better acquainted over drinks. Soon they decided to go swimming and when they climbed into the Jacuzzi, they were both loaded. Corinne proceeded to remove her bathing suit and things got increasingly sexual."
The crew member said Olympios "seemed to go limp" and lost consciousness, but Jackson still proceeded to fondle her.
The sexual encounter didn't come to an end until crew members came over to carry an unconscious Olympios to her room.
"At that point, some of the crew came out and carried her off to her room," the source concluded. "She was limp and seemed unable to walk on her own."
Jackson told TMZ the hookup was consensual.
Jackson claims Olympios was the one who actually initiated the sexual encounter, and he also explained they were unable have penetrative sex "because of the alcohol."
And according to Entertainment Tonight, Jackson and Olympios are currently on good terms.
"DeMario was trying to reach Corinne via email, Instagram and Facebook for a few days. Finally, [he] got a hold of her, they exchanged numbers and they've been talking. They are both speaking and on good terms," a source told ET.
But the crew member stands by their story.
The crew member was so distraught by what had happened (and how the production team handled the alleged assault) that they felt they need to come forward and file a complaint.
“One of the things that really disturbed people was that no one called a doctor or paramedic, which some felt they should have,” the source insisted. “Instead someone made the decision to just let her sleep it off. When Corrine awoke the next morning, people began filling her in on what happened the night before, because she claimed to have absolutely no recollection of what transpired.”
Earlier today, "Bachelor" franchise host Chris Harrison told Good Morning America, "Out of respect to all involved, there's only so much I can and will say at this time. I urge you to please be patient and respect the privacy of the parties involved." He says he hopes for a "quick resolution" and to get back to work as soon as possible.
