Production of Bachelor in Paradise Season 4 has been shut down due to misconduct by contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. The two were spotted indulging in sexual acts in a swimming pool and this resulted in one of the producers filing a formal complaint with Warner Bros, reported TMZ.
"We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico," Warner Bros rep Paul McGuire said in a statement. "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 sources connected to Jackson, he and Olympios were told by producers that one of the storylines includes the two of them hooking up and this resulted in the duo meeting at a bar and getting to know each other. Soon, alcohol started flowing and the two started making out, which included lots of "intense rubbing, touching and fingering," reported TMZ.
The legendary Ginuwine once said," I'm just a bachelor, I'm looking for a partner" on the classic, baby making song, "Pony." And after years of searching for a partner I'm excited to announce that I'll be one of 31 lucky men fighting for the heart of @therachlindsay on @thebachelorette. Chris Harrison said that, "I'm smooth, maybe too smooth and that I'm here for the wrong reasons"... and he may or may not be right... so you will have to tune to this seasons The Bachelorette to see who is here for the RIGHT (and WRONG) reasons.

However, they did not engage in sexual intercourse.
A couple of days later they were called by the executive producer of the show who told them that one of the producers was not happy with what was shot and has gone and filed an official complaint.
Blogger Reality Steve was the first to report on the Bachelor in Paradise scandal, telling his Twitter followers on Sunday, "Bachelor in Paradise production has been stopped. I'm not sure why yet."
"As far as I know, filming will resume at some point. But they gave people their phones back while filming has stopped," he added. "Don't know all the details. Hopefully for all parties involved it gets resolved. But certainly doesn't look like BIP is happening."
