Nev Schulman Addresses Sexual Harassment Charges as New Details Emerge

Earlier this week, fans of the popular MTV series Catfish were stunned by allegations of sexual misconduct directed at Nev Schulman, the show’s affable creator and host.

It wasn’t the first time that Schulman was accused of behaving inappropriately with a member of the opposite sex, but for many Catfish viewers, the news was shocking nonetheless.

After all, Schulman has made a career of being an advocate for vulnerable people – women, more often than not – who have been mistreated in the context of romantic relationships.

For many, to think that he would be capable of taking advantage of a power imbalance and harassing a woman who trusted him would be tantamount to admitting they’ve been fooled.

At first, details about the allegations against Schulman were somewhat hazy, but today, the 33-year-old addressed the situation for the first time as new information about the charges against him became public.

Though she has not yet confirmed that she is the accuser, several media outlets have identified Ayissha Morgan as the woman who lodged the complaint against Schulman.

Morgan appeared on a 2015 episode of Catfish, and she has since uploaded several YouTube videos detailing the mistreatment she allegedly suffered at the hands of one of the show’s hosts.

“I don’t think you’re a lesbian,” Morgan recalls the host saying.

“I was like, ‘Oh why do you feel that way?'” she says in one of her videos.

“And he was just like, ‘Because I just feel like you haven’t met the right guy yet. Do you think I’m attractive? Have you ever had sex with a guy?'”

Morgan says that when she replied in the negative, the host responded:

“Well I think you should try it, I have a big dick, I would tear your ass up.”

Schulman has issued a statement denying that any such conversation ever took place:

“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,” he writes.

“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”

An anonymous source has corroborated Schulman’s claims, telling E! News:

“The videos include a lot of things are that are disprovable, including the timeline and specific production details. The behavior she describes is inconsistent with Nev.”

Currently, production on Catfish is indefinitely suspended as MTV investigates the allegations against Schulman.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Prince Overdose Will NOT Result in Criminal Charges, Attorney Announces

We have another update on the passing of Prince.

Nearly two years to the day on which Prince died from a drug overdose, Carver County attorney Mark Metz says no criminal charges will be filed in conjunction with this tragedy.

During a press conference on Thursday afternoon, Metz explained that the “charging decision must be made on legal merits,” and not just on celebrity status, eventually stating that he “will not file any criminal charges” due to a lack of evidence.

Prior to this confirmation, there had been many questions over how Prince obtained the many (MANY) bottles of prescription pills that authorities found inside his home in April of 2016.

As previously reported, the iconic musician was found unconscious in his mansion and pronounced dead shortly afterward.

The DEA found prescription bottles in Prince’s possession at the time, with information later coming out that revealed Prince was prescribed heavy doses of Oxycodone just six days before he passed away.

Just last month, The Associated Press made public a toxicology report that detailed the levels of fentanyl flowing through the star’s body on the day he died.

It now is clear that Prince died as a result of this excessive amount of the aforementioned drug.

It turns out, however, that the artist had been taking counterfeit pills containing the powerful painkiller, unbeknownst to himself at the time.

“Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him,” Metz said.

However, he added that there is no evidence showing just how he obtained these counterfeit pills and, as a result, no one can be held accountable in a legal sense.

Metz did say for certain that Dr. Michael Schulenberg examined Prince around the time of his passing and prescribed percoset for the singer – in another man’s name – which he will be “held accountable for.”

But it is not believed Schulenberg prescribed for Prince the drugs that killed him.

(He will need to pay the government $ 30,000 in fines, though.)

Federal prosecutors and the Drug Enforcement Administration had opened an investigation into how Prince obtained the prescription medication, the agencies confirmed in the past.

Based on court documents from last year, none of the numerous bottles found in Prince’s home were actually in his name.

Some of them were in the name of bodyguard Kirk Johnson, for example.

Metz added it was likely Prince had also taken one of the counterfeit Vicodin when he overdosed on a private jet the week before he died.

He recovered from this incident and even performed a show for fans prior to his demise less than a week later.

It’s all very sad and very confusing.

The bottom line, however, remains the same:

Prince was a man in a lot of pain who went to great lengths in order to obtain heavy doses of medication.

He did so in ways that could not guarantee he always received the right mix of prescription pills.

The musician’s history with opioids was worrisome enough to those around him that, the day before he died, Prince’s team had called an opioid addiction specialist in California seeking urgent help for the star.

Alas, the plan was formulated too late.

We can only hope Prince is now resting in peace.
