Wow DeMario is Batting a Thousand Huh? Rachel Dodged A Friggin Bullet!!
Filming of the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise has been halted indefinitely after alleged sexual misconduct took place between DeMario Jackson and one of the show’s female contestants, according to People.com.
The suspension is in reaction to a producer’s complaint of sexual misconduct in which the female contestant was possibly too drunk to consent. We have chosen not to disclose her name due to the fact that she could be a victim of sexual assault.
According to anonymous sources close with DeMario who spoke to TMZ, his relationship with this woman was dictated as a story line for the season. The source goes on to say that after lots of drinking, the two began to hook up in the pool while the cameras were still rolling.
However, what exactly transpired between the them in that pool is being debated among witnesses. While the sources who spoke with TMZ say that the female castmember initiated the incident with DeMario and that the next day “everything was fine” between the two of them, one of the show’s contestants told People.com that two other cast members saw the interaction and that the cast is upset the crew didn’t do more to stop it. “People are pissed, and not just at DeMario. We’re pissed that this whole thing happened,” the contestant told People.com. “They could have seen that she was drinking too much and that he was taking advantage. They could have stopped this before it got this far.”
Adding to the complicated account, another source close to the cast told Entertainment Tonight that after the cast was sent home, DeMario and the female contestant continued talking. “DeMario was trying to reach [her] via email, Instagram and Facebook for a few days. Finally, [he] got a hold of her, they exchanged numbers and they’ve been talking. They are both speaking and on good terms,” the source told Entertainment Tonight.
In their official statement on Sunday, Warner Bros said: “We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ in Mexico. 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.” According to People.com, local police had no knowledge of the incident. According to Entertainment Tonight, the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise was originally scheduled to premiere August 8th.
