Bryan Singer is officially the gay Roman Polanski. I hate to say this, but it was only a matter of time.
X-Men director Bryan Singer is being accused of drugging, raping, and using his power to exploit a teenage boy in a lawsuit filed Wednesday, according to court documents obtained by TheWrap. According to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii, plaintiff Michael Egan, who was named in a press release by his lawyers, was 17 when he was forcibly sodomized by Singer, among other accusations.
Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.
An attorney for Singer said the lawsuit was “completely without merit.” “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit,” said Martin Singer. “It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’ s new movie is about to open in a few weeks.” The suit alleges Singer provided Egan with drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii for sex on more than one occasion in 1999 where Singer continued to “anally rape” him, and claims that Egan was not the only underage boy who was abused.
In 1997, while Singer was directing Apt Pupil, three teenage extras filed a lawsuit claiming that Singer made them put on robes and G-strings to film a scene in a shower where he….then asked them to take both of them off. When casting for the biggest movie of his career, Superman Returns, Singer casted a virtual unknown, Brandon Routh. Rumors later surfaced that Routh spent a lot of time in Singer's hot tub. Basically the allegations say that Bryan Singer is a sexual deviant who uses his power and influence to prey on underage boys and actors desperate for fame. That sucks, because The Usual Suspects is my jam. I really don't understand the mindset of a rapist or someone who thinks any of this is okay, because as a relative of someone who was the victim of a sexual assualt, I understood at an early age that there are worst things you can do to a person than killing them. And if that person had complete faith and trust in you, then you might as well have. Mankind, pretty please, get your shit together.
