‘Catfish’ host accused of sexual misconduct



NEW YORK - MTV has temporarily suspended shooting of “Catfish: The TV Show” while it investigates sexual misconduct accusations made by a woman who appeared on it three years ago.

Ayissha Morgan alleges in YouTube videos she was solicited for sex by a “main person” on the show who she identified by a made-up name, “Jack.” She also said she woke up after drinking with a female producer with the woman “on top of me.” At one point, Morgan said she joked with Jack about hiring her as his co-host.

The show’s host and executive producer is Yaniv “Nev” Schulman, who denied the allegations in a statement Thursday.

MTV says in a statement it takes “these allegations very seriously” and will conduct a thorough investigation while the show is on hiatus.
