Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexual Assault
The director of The Usual Suspects and the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, Bryan Singer, was accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy on several occasions in 1998 and 1999.
According to Michael Egan, who just sued “X-Men” director, he says that he and other minors were passed around like pieces of meat at sex parties, and he claims Singer was not alone, TMZ reported. The alleged sexually-charged pool parties took place at a home used to be owned by Suge Knight, in Encino. Suge is not involved in the case.
Back in 2000 following the alleged incident, Egan, 31, says that according to TMZ, his mother went to the FBI and LAPD and he was interviewed as well. Michael Egan sued 2 men who he claims molested him at parties back in 2000, director Bryan Singer was not named in the suit.
“The parties were typically sordid and featured sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys who were present for the parties,” the lawsuit claimed. According to CBS Los Angeles, “The parties included the distribution of drugs and alcoholic beverages to the teenage boys at the party.”
It has been reported that Suge Knight sold the house where the parties took place to Marc Collins-Rector. Michael Egan’s current lawyer, Jeff Herman, according to TMZ, says that Marc Collins-Rector has fled the country. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is set for release May 23. It’s the fifth film in the franchise.
