Up until this morning, it was more than assumed that the too-drunk-to-consent person in the middle of the messy Bachelor in Paradise situation was Corinne Olympios. Warner Bros. and ABC didn’t name names, but lots of “sources” did. When asked about her several times yesterday, DeMario Jackson, who says he’s innocent, didn’t hide that Corinne was the other one involved. Corinne herself talked today.
Corinne released a statement through her rep. She confirms that she has little memory of what happened in the pool that day and that she’s hired a team, including a lawyer, to help her get justice for what happened to her. via People
“I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. 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.
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.”
You may think that Corrine hired Gloria Allred, but People says that she’s hired high-powered Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer.
I’ll admit I was a little surprised to see that Corinne’s statement was released by a rep. But I guess there are some things Raquel the Nanny doesn’t do.
