Catfish's Nev Schulman Is Being Investigated For Sexual Misconduct
Filming of the show has since been suspended.
The host of MTV's Catfish, Nev Schulman, is being accused of sexual misconduct. Since allegations have arisen, MTV has suspended any further production of the show.
In a statement to The Daily Beast, an MTV spokesperson said the following:
"We take these allegations very seriously. We're working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation."
At this point in time, no additional information in regards to the allegations is available.
Schulman is both the executive producer and host of Catfish, a show about investigating the reality of online relationships, and tracking down people who are impersonating, or 'catfishing' others.
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. The show is currently in it's seventh season.
Schulman is married to Laura Perlongo, who is the mother of their child, Cleo James. These allegations come as a bit of a shock, as Schulman has gone public multiple times about his extremely positive views on feminism.
In 2016, Schulman and Perlongo even took to social media to share this video of their views on the importance of paternity leave.
As mentioned, no additional details from Nev, or MTV are currently available, but we will be sure to update you as soon as they are.
