Bryan Singer has finally issued an official response to the sex abuse lawsuit filed against him by Michael Egan, which alleges that Singer, Marc Collins-Rector, Garth Ancier, David Neuman, and Masters of the Universe director Gary Goddard were part of a "Hollywood sex ring" that used money, power, and influence to inflict sexual abuse on underage actors. From Deadline:

The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false,” Singer said. “I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I’ve decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support.

 

As noted in the statment, Singer has also bowed out of all promotion for next month's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Singer already canceled a WonderCon appearance to promote the movie last weekend, sending Simon Kinsberg in his stead. No questions were allowed during the X-Men portion of Fox's panel, for obvious reasons.
