'Bachelor in Paradise' suspended amid alleged misconduct

The Bachelor spinoff was filming in Mexico ahead of an August 8 premiere date, and Warner Bros. had little more to add than the following: "We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations".

"We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations", the statement continued. You'll notice that this statement doesn't say what those allegations are, which seems significant. As for the rest of the cast, a group of Paradise stars were spotted by fans at the airport in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, on Sunday morning.

Alcohol and courtship are both rather central to the Bachelor franchise, particularly Bachelor in Paradise-but it appears this incident crossed a line.

A source clarified that the misconduct was actually a drunken sexual encounter between two cast mates, which was witnessed by a show producer.

It's unclear if "Bachelor in Paradise" will premiere as scheduled later this summer.

Bachelor in Paradise was suspended after producers allegedly filmed DeMario Jackson in a sexual encounter with a female contestant who may have been too drunk to consent, two sources tell PEOPLE.

Bachelor in Paradise has halted production on the new season, now being shot in Mexico. Jackson and Olympios are absent from the group photo. The two moved to the pool, where they allegedly stripped off their clothes and began "rubbing, touching and fingering".

Sources close to Jackson told TMZ, however, that the hookup was created by show producers for a storyline. Corinne came up to DeMario at the bar and kissed him. They've also kept production in the past going even in the past of reports of "inappropriate relationships" between cast members and then people who work on the show.

Production on the upcoming fourth season of "Bachelor in Paradise" has been suspended due to "allegations of misconduct," Warner Bros. Once that's been completed, they've promised only to "take appropriate responsive action" and notably did not comment on the fate of the show.
