Ayissha Morgan, who appeared in a season 4 episode of “Catfish: The TV Show,” is alleging the MTV show’s host, Nev Schulman, and a female production assistant sexually harassed her during filming of the show.
In a series of lengthy videos, Morgan details her experience and lays out multiple claims of harassment, stating she wanted to make a video both for her “own piece of mind” and closure and says “with so many girls on the show, id feel like a jackass if something like this happened again.”
Morgan claims Schulman – who is referred to in her videos only as “Jack” – made multiple, “excessive” attempts to be intimate with her during the show’s production.
Morgan alleges it began with Schulman repeatedly questioning her sexual orientation. “He kept asking are you a lesbian or bisexual … I kept telling him I’m a lesbian and he kept saying ‘I don’t think you’re a lesbian, let me take you out,” Morgan says of their first interaction together.
The woman says she wasn’t initially bothered by the host’s alleged advances – it wasn’t until later that day she says he “crossed a line.” Morgan claims while at the airport, Schulman told her, “I don’t think you’re a lesbian I just think you haven’t met the right guy yet … Have you ever had sex with a guy? I think you should try it, I have a big d**k I would tear your ass up.”
After landing, Ayissha says the her and several crew members drove to their hotel and were given kets to their assigned rooms. She says Nev kept teasing he was staying in the same room as her, which made her uncomfortable.
“Jack comes up to me and whispers, ‘after they bring up your luggage call me and we can hangout, are you down to hangout?'” “I said yeah thats fine, because I thought we were all going to hangout at the bar with everyone.”
Morgan says she called Nev once she was settled in, assuming they were all hanging out, only for Nev to show up at her hotel room door alone. “He comes in and says okay we can hangout in here,” she says, adding that they sat on separate beds awkwardly until Nev asked her if she wanted to cuddle – she said no, he left the room.
The following day, Morgan says she was taken advantage of by a production assistant who she calls “Carol”.
Ayissha says the alleged incident took place after a staff party when her and Carol went to drink by themselves in a hotel room. She says the beer hit her hard and the next thing she knew, she had woken up with Carol on top of her. While Morgan did not go into much detail, she describes the night as “serious and nothing to play with.”
The following day, she says Nev asked her to come up to his room where he allegedly inquired what she did with Carol the night before. Morgan says she told him she didn’t remember, “and he said ‘why don’t you do what you did with Carol, but on me.'”
Morgans claims Nev laid down on a bed, grabbed her arm and she pulled it away and quickly left the room.
MTV has temporarily halted production on the show while the network investigates the claims.
