While details of the allegations have not been confirmed, it has been speculated that YouTuber and former Catfish participant Ayissha Morgan‘s latest videos detailing an incident she had with a previous show she was involved in are actually about Nev.

In a statement to the press, the father of one denied any wrongdoing while also suggesting he has witnesses who are willing to stick up for him.

The married 33-year-old filmmaker explained:

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

We’re sure more details will be surfacing soon. Stay tuned.
