Bachelor In Paradise Production Suspended Due To An "Allegation Of Misconduct"

Bachelor In Paradise suddenly suspended production in Mexico on Sunday amid an investigation into alleged misconduct.

A source close to the Bachelor in Paradise cast tells ET that when the cast first arrived to film the new season in Mexico, they were "drinking all day, having a good time... the guys and girls were bopping around, talking to everyone, trying to make connections".

The said behavior of the two contestants caught the attention of a producer, who allegedly "felt uncomfortable" with Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson's alleged misconduct. The season's cast was set to include: Raven Gates, Corinne Olympios, Amanda Stanton, Alexis Waters, Derek Peth, DeMario Jackson, Lacey Mark, Kristina Schulman, Nick "St. Nick" Benvenutti, Danielle Maltby, Taylor Nolan, Robby Hayes, Ben Zorn, Jasmine Goode, Vinny Ventiera, and Alex Woytkiw.

He and Olympios were told one of the story lines for Season 4 would be them "hooking up" since they are both the "villains" from their seasons. The producer has filed a formal complaint with Warner Bros.

A source clarified that the misconduct was actually a drunken sexual encounter between two cast mates, which was witnessed by a show producer. "DeMario and Corinne got sent home soon after".

It continued, saying: "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", says the statement from Warner Bros. "They proceeded to the pool, where they got naked", she tweeted.
