A lawsuit was filed in Hawaiian federal court today. It accuses Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men: Days of Future Past and Jack The Giant Killer, of "sexually abusing" an underage boy. In the court documents that were obtained by The Wrap, plaintiff Michael Egan, accuses Singer of forcibly sodomizing him when he was 17-years-old. Allegedly, the abuse began in 1999. Egan claims that Singer supplied him with drugs and alcohol and would fly him out to Hawaii for their sexual encounters. The suit also claims, Egan was not the only underage boy that Singer took advantage of.
The abuse allegedly began in 1998, shortly after Egan was lured to parties at a house in Encino, Calif. where a high school friend lived, the lawsuit claims. The house, known as the M & C Estate, was often the site of “notorious parties” where adult males allegedly preyed on young boys, the lawsuit claims.
According to the lawsuit, Egan was a model and aspiring actor. The documents claim Singer told Egan at one such party that “the adults who resided in or frequented the M & C Estate controlled Hollywood and could decide whether Plaintiff's career aspirations and hopes would be realized” and was also present when Egan was warned to keep those men “happy.”
The men supposedly told Egan they were sure he was homosexual according to their “gaydar,” even though Egan told them he was straight.
This lawsuit is just the first of many, said Egan's attorney, Jeff Herman. He plans to file more lawsuits with the courts against Singer and the other men that were at these alleged sex parties.
UPDATE! Bryan Singer's attorney, Marty Singer, has responded to the allegations, calling them “absurd and defamatory.”
“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” the attorney said. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated.” - via variety.com
