DeMario Jackson just broke his silence on the scandal surrounding " Bachelor In Paradise ." "It's unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations," he said in a statement to E!.

The statement was released just hours after "Bachelor In Paradise" contestant Corinne Olympios, the reported victim of the alleged sexual misconduct, announced that she has hired famed attorney Marty Singer to represent her.

The incident reportedly occurred early last week on the show's first day of taping. Sources have told news outlets that production was suspended after producers filmed a sexual encounter between Jackson ("The Bachelorette" season 13) and Olympios ("The Bachelor" season 21) while she was too drunk to give proper consent.

ABC and producer Warner Horizon have confirmed that an investigation into "allegations of misconduct" is in progress. It was reportedly the result of a "third-party complaint" filed by a show producer. But neither ABC nor Warner Horizon has confirmed that this season of the show has been cancelled.

"Bachelor in Paradise," a summer spin-off of ABC's long-running "The Bachelor" franchise, has aired for three seasons. It features eliminated contenders from the franchise who are secluded at a beautiful destination and gives them another chance at romance.
