Corinne Olympios Not Returning to ‘Bachelor in Paradise’
Following the conclusion of Corinne Olympios' legal team's investigation into the incident that occurred during the filming of Bachelor in Paradise, the reality star says she will not return to the show.
In a statement released to Us Weekly on Thursday (June 29), Olympios revealed her decision to leave Bachelor in Paradise despite being "happy about the changes that have been made to production."
"In light of the overwhelming amount of misinformation that has been spread in the media, I want to clarify a few things. My intent over the past few weeks has been to learn and understand what happened on June 4. 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 occurred," her statement reads. "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."
"My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction. I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor in Paradise," she continues, adding, "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."
At the conclusion of the studio's investigation into reports of sexual misconduct between Olympios and former contestant DeMario Jackson while filming, Warner Bros. found no evidence of wrongdoing.
Jackson also reportedly declined an invitation to return to the show.
