Corinne And DeMario Both Have Released Official Statements

Corinne and DeMario Both Have Released Official Statements

On Monday, we covered the devastating Bachelor in Paradise cancellation news, and as expected most of you reacted as if the family dog ran away. Thing is, at the time, the news made it seem like a producer was just trying to cash in on something. That was my take. And I have to own up to jumping the gun on that take, because not all of the information was available.

Now, the reports are still conflicting regarding how intoxicated Corinne (and DeMario) were. But, anyone who attended college orientation knows that you can’t give consent when you’re impaired, and there’s no real level of drunkness where consent is kosher or not (in the name of the law, anyway). So with that in mind, Corinne has released a statement and assembled somewhat of a lawyer all-star team to put the heat on The Bachelor and be vindicated.

Per TMZ:

Corinne Olympios has hired a team to “seek justice” for the “Bachelor in Paradise” swimming pool incident … TMZ has learned.

Corinne tells TMZ … “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.”

Corinne goes on … “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.”

TMZ has learned Corinne hired Marty Singer, and that makes it feel like a lawsuit is brewing.

Some of you may be wondering, who is this Marty Singer fella? Well, here’s the scoop:

And she didn’t stop there in constructing the best team ever assembled this side of the Patriots:

I mean, were Atticus Finch and Perry Mason unavailable for this one? Looks like this is rumbling bumbling stumbling its way to a lawsuit.

One thing I’m still trying to wrap my head around is if this rando producer didn’t file the third party complaint, would Corinne have said/done anything? That I have no idea about and won’t speculate. Anyway, get well soon, Corinne. I need you back on my TV screen in some capacity in the future and I’d prefer it to not be about an E! True Hollywood Story of how The Bachelor franchise crumbled at the hands of a twenty-four-year old who still has a nanny.

Also, here’s DeMario’s statement, if you care.

And, not to be outdone, DeMario has also assembled the lawyer junior varsity team.

Sidebar – how the FUCK does a guy like DeMario, a man who was on TV for all of maybe three hours, a man who has less Twitter followers than DeFries, afford these people. DeMario is an executive recruiter. According to Google, if he’s halfway decent at his job, he’ll be pulling in $100,000. How is he affording lawyers who celebs have used? It literally bottles my mind.

Also, if you care, here’s a TMZ video of DeMario being asked more questions than Sean Spicer has to field after a White House scandal.

Buckle up, homies. I think this is just the beginning.
