Filming of the fourth season of “Bachelor in Paradise” has temporarily ceased over alleged misconduct.
The spinoff show, which recently began production, features castoffs from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” trying again for love.
“We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ in Mexico,” Warner Bros. said in a statement to the Daily News.
“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.”
At least some of the 16 contestants have already been sent home, according to E! News.
An Instagram photo from a fan taken at a Mexican airport showed most of the cast waiting for their flights.
While Warner Bros. wouldn’t confirm details, the Los Angeles Times reported that co-stars DeMario Jackson, recently booted off Rachel Lindsay’s season of “The Bachelorette,” and Corinne Olympios, one of the villains from Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor,” got drunk and hooked up on the first day of production.
A producer who saw the “soft-core porn” hookup, which was also caught on film, allegedly did not show up the next day and is now suing the show, according to the Times.
“Bachelor in Paradise,” which was scheduled to premiere Aug. 8, also features recent castoffs including Raven Gates, Amanda Stanton and Robby Hayes.
