Production of the MTV series was put to a halt in May when Schulman was accused by former Catfish guest Ayissha Morgan of pressuring her to sleep with him. In two videos posted to YouTube, Morgan claimed that Schulman asked her to go to his hotel room. "I'm shook because the way you portray yourself on TV is totally different from the jackass you are in person," she said. "He was just pushing and pushing and pushing."
Schulman denied the allegations. "I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions," he said in a statement to the Daily Beast, "but these claims are false." Schulman is married with a 18-month-old daughter.
In a statement to Deadline, MTV said, "Although we never received a formal complaint, MTV and Critical Content immediately engaged an independent third party investigator. The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit."
The statement continued, "Given the results of the investigation, Catfish will resume filming. We take these matters very seriously and are committed to providing a safe working environment."
Schulman showed appreciation to the fans that supported him on Twitter in celebration.
