The Daily Beast reports that MTV has temporarily suspended Catfish: The TV Show, which is now in its seventh season, following allegations made against Schulman.

In Catfish, Schulman - who is married with a young daughter - investigates online relationships where one person is often not who they appear to be.

The show itself is actually based on a documentary about Schulman's experience being catfished, which has become wildly popular since it's first air in 2012.

"We take these allegations very seriously", MTV said in a statement issued to Newsweek.

Both the Daily Beast and Page Six have identified "Jack" as Nev Schulman, who is the creator and host of the show.

Schulman, 33, denied the allegations in a statement.

A crew member from the show tells Page Six that he questions her allegations due to the filming schedule of the show. "I would tear that ass up". She prefaces the video by saying she isn't looking for money or attention she just wants to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else that goes on the show. "I don't think you met the right guy yet, do you think I'm attractive?" he allegedly said. "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.

'I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions - but these claims are false'. Season 7 premiered in January.

Schulman has not addressed the suspension of the show on his social media.
