Bryan Singer Accused in Lawsuit of Sexually Assaulting a Minor

Just days after Bryan Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody, the director is now facing a lawsuit for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year boy in Washington State back in 2003.

Singer is likely best known as the director of multiple films in Fox's X-Men franchise, starting with the 2000 original and as recently as 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. Egan was hit with massive backlash and the case fell apart; his lawyers called accusations against two of the other men "untrue and provably false". After being raped, Sanchez-Guzman claims that Singer threatened to ruin his reputation if he told anyone. According to the lawsuit, Singer assaulted the then-teenaged Cesar Sanchez-Guzman in 2003 while they were on the yacht belonging tech investor Lester Waters in Washington state. The suit says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated Sanchez-Guzman.

In 1997, a 14-year-old "Apt Pupil" claimed Singer forced him and other minors to strip naked for a scene.

"Later, Bryan Singer approached Cesar and told him that he was a producer in Hollywood and that he could help Cesar get into acting as long as Cesar never said anything about the incident", the lawsuit reads. Although the alleged victim pleaded with him to stop, Singer allegedly wouldn't and caused him to choke.

The accusations come days after Singer was sacked by Twentieth Century Fox from their production of a Freddie Mercury biopic that only had two weeks left of shooting. After he was sacked, Singer said he was unable to make it to the set because he was caring for an ailing parent.
