Bryan Singer Requests Sexual Abuse Lawsuit be Thrown Out

Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer, the director of “X-Men,” asked a judge on Thursday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by an anonymous British man that accuses Singer of sexually abusing him as a minor, according to Reuters.

Marty Singer, the attorney for the director, asked U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson in Los Angeles to throw out the lawsuit, which was filed back in May. The attorney said that the lawsuit was improperly filed anonymously by a British citizen. The plaintiff has been identified as John Doe No. 117 in court papers. The attorney also requested payment of $300,000 from the plaintiff for legal fees.

The lawsuit accuses the director and Gary Goddard, an entertainment industry executive, of having the British man perform sex acts while underage in return for help with his acting career. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Jeff Herman, who is a prominent child sex abuse lawyer. Last month, Goddard requested that the lawsuit be dismissed.

Singer was named in another sex abuse lawsuit prior to the release of “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

The lawyer for Singer said the claims are fabrications and false. He also said the lawsuits are a ploy to win money from the director. The lawyer for Goddard called the allegations ‘spurious.’ The other lawsuit was filed by Michael Egan, who accused Singer of abusing him sexually while underage.
