MTV suspends Catfish amid sexual misconduct allegations against Nev Schulman.

MTV has suspended the production on Catfish following allegations of sexual misconduct against host Nev Schulman.

Allegations against the 33-year-old host emerged earlier this week, after a woman who appeared on the show back in 2015 posted two YouTube videos, claiming a man, who she dubs ‘Jack’, made a number of inappropriate comments.

“We take these allegations very seriously,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement.

“We’re working with Critical Content, our third-party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.”

Catfish: The TV Show is an American reality-based documentary television series airing on MTV about the truths and lies of online dating. The series is based on the 2010 film Catfish and is co-hosted by Max Joseph.

American singer and actress, Ariana Grande has spoken out about the Manchester Arena attack, describing it as the “absolute worst of humanity”.

A terrorist planted an explosive device at the conclusion of Ariana Grande’s concert in the city on May 22 last year, killing 22 people and injuring over 500.

Speaking about the incident with Time magazine she said, “The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won,” Ariana said.

“Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day.

“I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”


Madonna is about to release new music.

It’ll be called Beautiful Game, and her 14th studio album is on the way too, as confirmed on Instagram.

Announcing her new music Madonna, 59, also mentioned the producer Mirwais (full name Mirwais Ahmadzai) who she has been collaborating with on her new record.

Madonna, who turns 60 in August, has been working on what will be her 14th studio album for some time and has been posting regular studio updates on social media.

Madonna’s last album was 2015’s Rebel Heart, which peaked at number two in the US and on the Official Albums Chart in the UK.
