"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." De Mario Jackson, also a contestant on "Bachelor in Paradise," said later that day that his character had been defamed.
We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations," a statement from Warner Bros. "Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action." know a majority of the cast members were spotted at the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, flying home from the set.
