MTV has suspended their hit series, “Catfish,” after the show’s host, Nev Schulman, has been accused of sexual misconduct by a woman who appeared on the show.
First things first, Nev is vehemently denying the allegations against him. Now, let’s move on…
Via Page Six:
Ayissha Morgan, who appeared on Season Four of the MTV series in 2015, made accusations against the host on YouTube, using the pseudonym “Jack” for “the main guy on the show,” which many believe refers to Schulman, 33.
“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. I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false,” Schulman told Page Six in a statement on Thursday.
Morgan, 20, who identifies as a lesbian, claims that when filming “Catfish,” Jack repeatedly questioned her sexuality. “He just kept asking me, ‘Are you a lesbian or are you bisexual?’ I was like, ‘I’m a lesbian for the 50th f—king time,’” she recalled.
When she found herself alone with Jack before they flew to Houston to film — despite having a female producer assigned to accompany her — Morgan alleges Jack told her, “I don’t think you’re a lesbian … I don’t think you met the right guy yet, do you think I’m attractive?”
She also alleges Jack told her he had a large penis and she should have sex with him to “evaluate” her sexuality.
Ayissha also says she was sexually assaulted by a female producer who took advantage of her while she was drunk.

A spokesperson for MTV told Page Six:
We take these allegations very seriously. We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.
One former crew member said homegirl has to be lying because the way their filming schedule is set up…her story wouldn’t pan out.
But, another former crew member said Nev used to get flirty when he was single, but he never got out of pocket.
Story is developing…SMH
