MTV has HALTED production on it’s hit show ‘Catfish’ in light of RECENT SEXUAL MISCONDUCT allegations against its host Nev Schulman!
“We take these allegations very seriously,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation.”
Going into season 7, the show INVESTIGATES online relationships in hopes of discovering if the people are actually who they claim to be online.
Nev is married to Laura Perlongo and they have a 17 month old daughter.
“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions—but these claims are false,” Schulman told The Daily Beast in a statement.
The allegations came to light in two Youtube videos uploaded earlier this week by Ayissha Morgan, who previously appeared on the show three years ago. In the videos, titled “The TRUTH about the show” she outlined her experience, alleging “Jack” (a label she gave to the show’s “main person”) made several inappropriate, sexual comments.
Schulman denied the allegations in an emailed statement to USA TODAY Thursday.
“The behavior described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth,” he said. “I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”
