Corinne Olympios Speaks Out Over Alleged ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Misconduct
Bachelor in Paradise contestant Corinne Olympios has finally broken her silence over the misconduct claim that shut down filming of BiP's fourth season.
In a statement released by Olympios today, she says, “I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened the night of June 4.”
The statement from the 24-year-old reality star continues, “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.”
A statement released by Warner Bros. earlier this week explained that filming of Bachelor in Paradise's fourth season had been halted after serious allegations of misconduct arose.
Olympios further detailed the personal repercussions from the ordeal, “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.”
No additional details, statements or footage pertaining to the Bachelor in Paradise misconduct claim have been released.
