X-Men Director Bryan Singer Accused Of Molesting Teen Boy In The Late 90s

X-Men director Bryan Singer is being sued by a man who alleges that Singer drugged and molested him in the late 90s.  Singer's accuser was 17 at the time.
The lawsuit - filed weeks before the release of Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past - alleges the 48-year-old used his influence as a Hollywood insider, as well as a range of drugs and alcohol, to force sex on the boy. Michael Egan seeks unspecified damages and a jury trial after wide-ranging abuses at California and Hawaii house parties beginning in the late 1990s, according to the civil action filed in a Hawaii federal court. A representative for Singer did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The suit accuses Marc Collins-Rector, a former entertainment business executive and registered sex offender, of initiating the sexual abuse by arranging for Singer to meet Egan at "notorious parties" in Encino, California, around 1998. "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 said.
Singer's attorney reacts: "The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at a time when Bryan's new movie is about to open in a few weeks." (Tipped by JMG reader Gerald)
