"Catfish" Host Nev Schulman Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Nev Schulman Catfish

MTV has halted production on its Catfish series after sexual misconduct investigations against host/executive producer Nev Schulman became public, The Daily Beast reports.

"We take these allegations very seriously", an MTV spokesperson told HuffPost. "We're working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation".

There has been no information released on the details behind the misconduct, but some are saying it has to do with a woman who was a participant of the show.

The show itself is actually based on a documentary about Schulman's experience being catfished, which has become wildly popular since it's first air in 2012. Some tales end in serious misery, while some get just what they expected. He has yet to respond to the allegations pinned on his name.

In his 2014 memoir, In Real Life: Love, Lives & Identity in the Digital Age, Schulman also admitted he often stole clothes and drugs, crashed expensive cars and once "took a dump in the cereal dispenser", inside his school cafeteria as a teen.

In a statement to The Blast, Schulman says "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". The accusations have been reported on by Variety in reference to videos from a female accuser who claims that Schulman made inappropriate remarks and behaved inappropriately when she appeared on the show three years ago.

Global News has reached out to Schulman for comment.
