The investigation against reality star DeMario Jackson is over and he has been cleared of the allegations that sexually assaulted his co-star, Corinne Olympios, on the set of ABC's Bachelor in Paradise.
Jackson, who was a former contestant on the current season of The Bachelorette, was accused of going too far with Olympios, who said she was incoherent and did not consent to any physical activity with him.
The show was put on hold while the studio investigated. Now, Warner Bros. has finished looking into the case and said a sexual assault did not occur, TMZ reported on Tuesday.
Jackson's legal team sat with Warner Bros. and evaluated the tapes. They both decided that Jackson was not in the wrong.
The show has resumed filming and while Jackson has been asked to return, there is no word on if Olympios will.
Olympios released a statement via her attorney Marty Singer, to Us Weekly.
"It needs to be made crystal clear that production of 'Bachelor in Paradise' was shut down because of multiple complaints received from BIP producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone," Singer said. "It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrongdoing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard."
Meanwhile, Warner Bros. released its own statement and said no footage of the reported incident will be released. The statement, however, reiterated that the footage clears Jackson's name.
"We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy."
