Catfish: The TV Show is going to resume production after investigators found Nev Schulman to be innocent of wrongdoing. The third party who looked into the sexual misconduct allegations against him found the accusations to be “not credible and without merit.”
In a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for MTV said even though they never received an official complaint, they engaged in an independent investigation and found him innocent of the supposed transgressions.
The network said they found the allegations made by Morgan in her YouTube videos “not credible and without merit.” A spokesperson for the organization confirmed they would resume filming of the show, but they still take such matters incredibly seriously.
As it was previously reported, last month, MTV suspended production of Catfish, which began in 2012, and at that time, was in its seventh season. The 33-year-old vehemently denied the charges, as well as his girlfriend, who stood up for him on social media.
Schulman defended himself, saying the allegations were completely baseless and he’s never behaved that way toward anyone in his life, and especially at work. It was totally unlike him to act in such a way and that “anyone that knows him” understands that to be the truth.
Reportedly, the accuser filed two police reports in Houston, Texas. Ayissha Morgan, confirmed to The Blast that she spoke with police and filed official reports with the Special Crimes Division over Schulman’s repeated harassment and sexual advances.
According to Morgan, he would frequently chastise her for her sexuality, and on numerous occasions, propositioned her for sex, and suggested they get a hotel room together so he could change her mind on men.
Ayissha then went on to state in her video that she suffered depression due to the comments made by Schulman. And her second accusation was that a female member of the crew “took advantage” of her while in a hotel room.
