Breaking: Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Assaulting Teenager in Lawsuit (Update: Singer Responds)

A story broke tonight about a lawsuit implicating X-Men movie franchise director Bryan Singer of sexually assaulting seventeen year old boy. Variety is reporting on the lawsuit, which alleges that Singer forcibly sodomized plaintiff Michael Egan when he was 17 years old.  According to the claims in the lawsuit, Singer gave Egan drugs and alcohol, brought him to Hawaii, and offered him movie roles. Marc Collins-Rector is named in the lawsuit as well.

We're not aware of any response from Singer at this time [updated - see below]. Here is an an excerpt from the claims from The Wrap:

Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.

 

The Wrap also posted an excerpt from the allegations about Collins-Rector's involvement:

Approximately 2-3 months after Collins-Rector began sexually abusing Plaintiff, Defendant Singer was socializing with Collins-Rector around the estate's swimming pool and Plaintiff was in the pool. In compliance with the “rules” imposed by Collins-Rector that people in the pool area were not allowed to wear clothes, Plaintiff was nude as was Defendant Singer.

Collins-Rector ordered Plaintiff out of the pool, and Defendant Singer hugged Plaintiff and grabbed his bare buttocks. They then went to the jacuzzi where Collins-Rector had Plaintiff sit on his lap and fondled Plaintiff's genitals. Collins-Rector then passed Plaintiff to Defendant Singer and Plaintiff was made to sit on Defendant Singer's lap.

Defendant Singer provided an alcoholic beverage to Plaintiff and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing. Defendant Singer told Plaintiff how “this group” controls Hollywood, and that he was sexy. Defendant Singer masturbated Plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited Plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him which Plaintiff resisted.

Defendant Singer flagrantly disregarded Plaintiff's unwillingness to submit, and forced Plaintiff's head underwater to make Plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When Plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, Defendant Singer demanded that he continue which Plaintiff refused. Defendant Singer then forced Plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized Plaintiff.

 

UPDATE 9:40PM Pacific: TMZ has reported a response from Bryan Singer's attorney disputing the claims:

Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer, says, "The claims claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit."

Attorney Singer adds, "It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at a time when Bryan's new movie is about to open in a few weeks." 

 

UPDATE 9:50AM Pacific: The Hollywood Reporter has the full legal complaint here. Bleeding Cool reports that Egan will hold a press conference in LA today.

As this is a serious matter for all parties involved, we have no additional commentary at this time.
