Corinne Olympios’s BF Still Supports Her After ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Incident
Corinne Olympios is lucky to have a loyal boyfriend.
The first day of taping Bachelor in Paradise, an alleged non-consensual sexual encounter between Corinne and fellow contestant, DeMario Jackson, ended up having Warner Bros. shutting down production and sending the cast home.
The reality star had made a promise to boyfriend Jordan Gielchinsky that she would not hook up with her castmates while on the show.
According to a source from TMZ, Corinne and boyfriend agreed that she was, "only going to do the show to get pub for her new clothing line. Her plan was to be on for a couple episodes, and then bow out."
Production for Bachelor in Paradise, which was shooting in Mexico, was suspended on June 11 after allegations of misconduct were reported.
A producer filed a complaint that Corinne had no ability to consent to DeMario's sexual acts that played out in a swimming pool, while she was under the influence of alcohol.
Sources close to the couple told TMZ that "Jordan was initially upset when he heard what went down, but once he got the full context of the event — meaning the heavy drinking — he backed Corinne."
"He agrees she was way too drunk to give consent, and strongly believes producers and medical staffers should have intervened," according to TMZ.
Apparently, since production was halted, Corinne has returned to L.A., and she and Jordan have been inseparable.
Production of Bachelor in Paradise has been suspended until an investigation into the alleged sexual assault is completed.
