Corinne Olympios breaks silence on Bachelor in Paradise scandal

After several days of silence, Corinne Olympios is speaking about the alleged sexual misconduct on set of Bachelor in Paradise.

“I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4,” Olympios said in a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday. “Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production.”

The reality star, who recently competed in Nick Viall’s season 21 of The Bachelor, continued.

“As a woman, this is my worst nightmare and it has now become my reality. As I pursue the details and facts surrounding that night and the immediate days after, I have retained a group of professionals to ensure that what happened on June 4 comes to light and I can continue my life, including hiring an attorney to obtain justice and seeking therapy to begin dealing with the physical and emotional trauma stemming from that evening.”

Olympios hired celebrity lawyer Marty Singer – whose client list includes Charlie Sheen and Quentin Tarantino – to help her “seek justice” in the Bachelor in Paradise scandal, TMZ reports.

Production on the reality show is suspended indefinitely. As for DeMario Jackson, the other person involved in the misconduct allegations, he is keeping quiet.

“No comment,” Jackson said in a video attained by Entertainment Tonight. “I have nothing to say. You know, Corinne’s an awesome girl and that’s all I have to say. Love you all, thank you for the support.”

As previously reported, Warner Bros. is conducting a full internal investigation into the alleged misconduct.

Bachelor in Paradise was scheduled to air August 8.
