'Bachelor in Paradise' contestant Corinne Olympios wants tapes of the alleged sexual misconduct

Corinne Olympios

Corinne Olympios is requesting the tapes from the alleged "Bachelor in Paradise" scandal that has made news recently.

“Corinne hasn’t seen the tapes,” the contestant's publicist Stan Rosenfield told The Hollywood Reporter. “We just want to find out what happened and get to the bottom of it."

THR reports that Marty Singer, Olympios' high-powered attorney, has sent a letter to "Bachelor in Paradise" producer Warner Bros. demanding that it release the tapes to his client.

According to sources close to the production, Olympios was engaged in sexual acts with fellow cast member DeMario Jackson while taping the show last week. Show sources have alleged that she was too intoxicated to give consent. Warner launched an investigation into the situation and suspended production on the show after a producer filed a complaint.

Olympios said in a statement on Wednesday that she had very little memory of what occurred that night, saying that she was "a victim."

Olympios' request to see the tapes aligns with Jackson's call for the tapes on Thursday. He told "Inside Edition" that he believes the footage will clear his name.

Though "Bachelor in Paradise" contestants sign contracts protecting ABC and Warner Bros. from lawsuits stemming from incidents that occur during shooting, if Olympios or Jackson can prove that the producers were acting recklessly, they could have a case against the companies.

As of now, Warner's investigation into the alleged incident is ongoing and no charges have been filed with law enforcement. Show sources have said it's doubtful the "Bachelor" summer spin-off's fourth season will resume production.
