Below Deck Sailing Yacht Cast

As noted in the TikTok video and discussed in a relevant article by Rolling Stone, Samantha Suarez stated that the incident allegedly occurred last summer during the Season 4 production of the Sailing Yacht spin-off. Supposedly, an alcohol consumption claim may have been a factor in the incident when Suarez allegedly took King- who was supposedly intoxicated- back to his hotel room one night.

Allegeld,y King asked her to get into bed with him even though Suarez was in a relationship at the time- and he was supposedly aware. When she tried to leave he allegedly grabbed her and pressed her up against her body, refusing to let go. When she was able to free herself from his grasp he slammed the door on her. After she received a call from a talent manager, King allegedly let her go and she went into the hallway.

The next day she claimed she felt uncomfortable working with him in which production stated he would be fired if any additional incidents took place. King was then told to sleep on the boat during the duration of filming, as opposed to the hotel.

The show is now being accused of covering up the incident- what do you think about the scandal?
