Nev Schulman's (alleged) past is coming back to haunt him.

As we reported, MTV has temporarily suspended production on Catfish: The TV Show due to sexual misconduct claims made against the show's host.

That same day, the married 33-year-old filmmaker released a statement, saying the "claims are false."

Allegedly, this isn't the first time Schulman has been embroiled in controversy.

Back in 2006, he was expelled from Sarah Lawrence College for allegedly punching a woman at a school dance.

According to a 2014 Vulture piece, the female in question accused Nev of "taking pictures of queer couples dancing and kissing without their permission." That's when the alleged confrontation occurred:

"I confronted him, and asked him to stop taking pictures… I tapped his shoulder and he turned and hit me out of nowhere, I went down and he held me in a head lock and repeatedly punched me while I tried to get free… The impact broke my glasses and the rest of the night was a blur. I got off the floor, talked to police, then went home to sleep. When I woke up the next day, my face was bruised, I was hurt, and a friend urged me to go to the hospital, which I did."

The alleged victim did not file charges because she was advised "it would be a difficult case to win."

Schulman told Gawker in 2014 that he acted in "self-defense," and included the incident in his 2014 memoir, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age. He wrote:

"While I was photographing, an individual who didn't like that I was taking pictures attempted to tackle me and smash my camera on the ground… Since the camera was attached to a strap around my neck, I found myself in a very unpleasant situation, much like a dog with a choke collar. In an effort to free myself, I punched the person and ran off; when I returned minutes later, I discovered that the short, stocky, crew-cut-styled individual that I'd fought with was a woman—a fact I hadn't been aware of in the heat of the moment. The next thing I knew, I'd been arrested.The case was dismissed almost immediately, but Sarah Lawrence took the opportunity to toss me out once and for all."

Drama, drama, drama!
