X-Men’ Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Abusing Teen Boy

According to documents filed in Hawaii, 31-year-old Michael Egan claims Singer used his power in the entertainment industry to sexually exploit him when he was an underage teen actor striking it out in Los Angeles.

Now Egan is suing the director, for $300,000 for the 'catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries' he says he suffered, the documents filed Wednesday explain.

Representing Egan is attorney Jeff Herman, who plans on filing more sex abuse cases against film industry execs soon.

'Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children. This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue,' Mr Herman said in a press release.

In the suit, Egan claims the abuse started when moved to Los Angeles with his family to start his acting career.

It was in LA that he was introduced to another Hollywood powerplayer, Marc Collins-Rector and his lover Chad Shackley, he claims. Egan was invited to one of Collins-Rector's 'notorious' parties held at his home, dubbed the M&C Estate in Encino, California.

Gay X-Men director Bryan Singer denies raping 17-year-old boy

Bryan Singer, the director of the X-Men films and The Usual Suspects, has denied raping a 17-year-old boy and forcing him to take cocaine in 1999.

Mr Singer is accused of forcing Michael Egan III into sex during parties in California and Hawaii when Mr Egan, then a teenage actor, was 17.

Attorney Marty Singer said the legal action, filed in Hawaii on Wednesday, was “absurd and defamatory”.

“We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated,” said Marty Singer.

“It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’s new movie” – superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past – “is about to open in a few weeks.”

So apparantly Bryan is known to be into fucking twinks and likes to surround himself with young guys but that could make him an easy target for guys who want a quick buck. Also the question why file a civil case instead of a criminal case when this is a sex crime? Especially when a civil case does not attempt to determine the innocence or guilt of someone, but instead to determine whether the offender is liable which is primarily to seek damages or money and this being filed just before the X-Men premiere is suspicious.

Anyways I hope he didn't do it but of course I mostly want the truth to come out and whether or not he's guilty of this he's definitely creepy as hell.

Discuss all the creepyness.

It's the kind of thing nobody would suspect but then nobody outside of the business really knows him.

X-Men directors seem to become too easily embroiled in gay scandal. What with this and then the overly homophobic Brett Ratner getting into trouble for his slurs all the time.

'Twould be a shame. I've always enjoyed his movies. It is curious that it's a civil suit. I myself am generally attracted to younger men, but for the life of me I don't know why people play with fire by skirting the age line.

Its probably in civil court because of the statute of limitations (as the crime in question happened 14/15 years ago):

There are a lot of rumours about stuff like this happening in the entertainment industry, having that said, I do believe in innocent until proven guilty. Time will tell.

I hate stories like this, because no matter how horrendous the allegations are, I force myself to remember that it's "innocent until proven guilty". Same goes for the Woody Allen case.

But nah I don't believe it, why would he do that with an underage boy when he clearly has a supply of legal aged boys that look underage? :lol:
Ahhh well, a part of the hurt has already been done now. People are probably going to remember him for this too, even if he's proven innocent. :shake:

I'm quite curious about the other cases this lawyer is saying he's going to file.

according to two major gossip sites, you would be surprise about the amount of sexual exploitation that goes on in Hollywood. he is quite known in Hollywood for hosting parties full of bare legal twinks and using his influence and power in gaining boy toys.

Which would be a textbook example of circumstantial evidence.

And according to major gossip sites, every female celebrity in the world has been pregnant at least twice last year.

If its true then I feel for Egan, if its not then I feel for Singer. There have been a solid number of actors who have spoken (usually in print) of having been fucked with when they were younger by adults on the studio lot(s) as well as at parties and such. So I believe it could have happened, but because I don't know these people at all nor any of the people they know there's just no way to know for sure. I know what its like to be fucked with so this sort of thing tends to make my blood boil as I fill with rage, but there's just no way to know unless there is physical evidence or a witness that proves it one way or another.

In regards to the idea that its suspicious due to timing, I don't find it so. If I was going to sue someone who raped me and I knew there was going to be a time to file that would hurt them more, inflict more nasty press upon them, and have a better chance of getting the word out said person is a scumbag - thats exactly when I would do it.

Its really a horror show either way. If the kid really was fucked with, the nightmares, fears, nervous ticks, hesitation in trust, etc never goes away. 300,000 and a guilty verdict will probably bring some satisfaction but it won't fix anything. If the kid's lying and Singer is just a dude who loves twinks but wouldn't lay a finger on an unwilling party, well this will just follow him around forever.

There are two parts that I don't understand, possibly just because of the way my mind works.

1. I don't know why you'd sue 15+ years after the fact. I have reasons why I never pressed charges or took any of the various people who fucked with me to court, but those don't exist for a few of the people anymore and I just can't imagine now, 15 years later going after one of them in court. I mean it won't bring closure, it wouldn't be as gratifying as putting them in the hospital... $300,000 would be kind of motivating but the pure hell of having to live through those experiences again in a crowded room just isn't worth $300,000. Its just not.

2. I don't understand why anyone would fuck with a 17 year old when they could fuck with an 18 year old. I mean if you dig 13-14 year olds and you just can't control yourself then thats logical. Vile, evil, and worth having your legs broken (and castrated if its rape) - but logical due to the physical difference between 14 and 18. But if you're just into younger guys then why not stick to the legal ones? I mean jesus christ, thats just stupid, even if you are a scumbag molesting rapist. Now I say that and I've known people who raped 17 year olds, but they were the same people who raped me when I was 14, and one of them was the same guy who raped my friend Sam when he was 9. So in that regard I exclude them from this line of thought because they were just evil. Bryan Singer (I assume) doesn't make child porn, he's not on the same level as the people I knew, I don't know why He would fuck a 17yo when he could fuck an 18 yo. Thats the point I was trying to make.
