Sexual Assualt Lawsuit Against Bryan Singer Dropped But New Criminal Investigation Underway

Sexual Assualt Lawsuit Against Bryan Singer Dropped But New Criminal Investigation Underway

Every silver cloud has a dark lining.

This week, news hit the net that Michael Egan, the man who accused X-Men director Bryan Singer of sexually assaulting him while he was a minor, dropped the lawsuit after a falling out with his lawyer, Jeff Herman. Singer denied the charges, calling them "outrageous, vicious and completely false." The controversy caused Singer to drop out of promotion for X-Men: Days of Future Past in order to keep the focus on the movie. The lawsuit was dropped without prejudice, meaning Egan could file again another time. Now, The Wrap reports that the NYPD have confirmed they are investigating Singer for sexual assault of a man in his 20s in New York. Though Singer has not yet been contacted about the investigation, which has been going on since May, the NYPD say this is not unusual. No other facts are availble at this time. We'll keep you updated on this story as more details come out.
