The Bachelor wedding between Jason and Molly doesn't air until next Monday, but it hasn't kept those involved with the production from airing their dirty laundry!
The Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes hosted the lavish nuptials, but they want to make it clear: that's ALL they did was host -- they didn't provide the security!
Before the wedding started last Saturday, X17online captured security guards' aggressive behavior toward photographers that ended in an eventual citizen's arrest of two of the snappers. But who exactly hired this security? That appears to be the million dollar question.
Both ABC and Warner Horizon have denied hiring the event security. Although Next Entertainment did return our call, they wouldn't comment on the whether they hired the security detail. As for the Lomita Sheriff's Department, who made the citizen's arrest that day, they claim that the security involved was indeed from the resort. But an employee at the Terranea tells us, no way!
A senior executive from Terranea Resort tells X17online exclusively:
- "We were caught off guard! It was not the resort security, and we did not sign any contracts. We were certainly not managing them. All of our security were away from this confrontation. Our security wear tan suits and blue shirts, and in the video, that's clearly not what they're wearing. I personally observed the confrontation as it was happening and we were shocked!"
Employees of the luxury oceanfront resort signed a confidentiality agreement that prohibits them from commenting on anything regarding the wedding until after The Bachelor wedding special airs on Monday. But they did tell us that the security "was handled by a 3rd party, but not by ABC."
So if you own or work for the company that provided security guards, please step forward and give us your side of the story!
Do you think the security guards were justified in their use of force? Should the sheriff's department be more careful where citizen's arrests are concerned - requiring more information before people are handcuffed and booked?
