Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock admits to sexual misconduct

In November, news came down the wire stating that SpringHill Entertainment - LeBron James' production company - and film-maker Morgan Spurlock ("Super Size Me") had plans of filming a documentary series on the construction of an I Promise school in Akron, Ohio.

"In light of recent revelations, Pretty Matches and Refinery29 are severing ties with Morgan Spurlock", the two companies said in a statement to Deadline.

Spurlock says prior to this post, his first wife was the only person he had ever told about being the victim of abuse.

Fellow co-founder Jeremy Chilnick confirmed that the company will now be run by himself and Matthew Galkin who is another equal partner in the firm.

Spurlock said in his confession that he called a former female assistant "hot pants" or "sex pants" in the office, only realizing it was degrading when she came to him asking for a "settlement".

"I paid for peace of mind". He says that when she quit, she demanded money in exchange for not telling anyone about his harassment of her, which he duly paid. "When I was in college, a girl who I hooked up with on a one night stand accused me of rape".

Spurlock said he "didn't know what to do" when the woman started to cry during sex. The two stopped having sex, and Spurlock tried comforting her. "She believed she was raped", Spurlock wrote, adding, "That's why I'm part of the problem".

"I thought I was doing ok, I believed she was feeling better". Not outright. There were no charges or investigations, but she wrote about the instance in a short story writing class and called me by name. "I was floored", he wrote.

The filmmaker also said that he has been unfaithful to every "wife and girlfriend I have ever had".

In the blog post, he chronicled his multiple infidelities, verbal sexual harassment in the workplace, battle with depression and decades-long struggle with alcohol abuse.

He described the note as "an apology" in a follow-up message on Facebook, saying that he wants to be "part of the solution".

Spurlock added: "By recognising and openly admitting what I have done to further this bad situation, I hope to empower the change within myself. I will be better". But the biggest question looming is what happens now to the fate of Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!

Mustachioed movie maker Spurlock shot to fame with the making of his movie Super Size Me which charts his experiment of eating nothing but McDonald's for a month.
