Production of Season 4 of BiP was shut down last week after contestant Corinne Olympios said that she did not give consent to have sexual relation with DeMario Jackson.
(MAJOR SPOILER): I'm not at liberty to throw accusations out. But yeah, drinking, sex, cameras, etc. You get the picture. (3/3) — RealitySteve (@RealitySteve) June 11, 2017
Olympios claims she blacked-out from drinking too much and blames the show's producers for not stopping and protecting her from having sex with fellow BiP contestant DeMario Jackson.
However, she doesn't blame Jackson because she said he was also drunk. Yet, Jackson said he was not in a blackout state and remembers the whole sexual encounter with Olympios - from "rubbing, touching and fingering" to licking her genitals, reports the gossip publication TMZ.
According to TMZ, people familiar with the footage of the 24-year-old Olympios and 30-year-old Jackson at a pool having sexual interactions say she was "fully engaged."
Besides shutting down production, Warner Bros. has launched a full investigation on the incident. But, there is no word if law enforcement in Mexico, where the reality show was being filmed, were informed of the specific sexual allegations between the two cast members.
Mexican officials from Sayulita police department told PEOPLE that they "had no knowledge of the alleged incident."
