As we reported, over the weekend Bachelor In Paradise season 3 stars Evan Bass and Carly Waddell got married in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in front of Bachelor alums including Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nick Viall, and Vanessa Grimaldi. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. But their U.S. debut has now been cancelled after last week's news the series has been shut down due to an alleged sexual misconduct scandal.

In addition to not remember anything past the shot of tequila, the source claims that Corinne was told by other female cast members that she was so drunk that she could not walk, and that she had to be helped down the stairs, where she allegedly fell and "busted her knee open". "We take all such allegations seriously", the statement read.

Bachelor in Paradise season 4 will resume filming after Warner Bros. concluded their investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct on set and found no evidence to support the claims. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident.

It was a bit of good news for franchise fans after a bleak week that has seen shooting of Bachelor in Paradise suspended over alleged misconduct involving a sexual encounter between cast members Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy.

However, on Wednesday, Rodman visited a women's basketball team and the birthplace of North Korea's founder Kim Il-sung. A 2009 visit by former President Bill Clinton secured the freedom of American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling.

The statement continued to reveal that production on the fourth season will resume, with new policies in place to ensure the "safety and security" of everyone involved in filming.

Bachelor in Paradise was originally scheduled to premiere on ABC on August 8. ABC was waiting for results as well for a decision on whether it would scrap the show.

Waddell and Bass met on season three of the reality show, which takes former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants to Mexico in hopes of helping them find love.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
