    Default 'X-MEN' DIRECTOR BRYAN SINGER ACCUSED OF SEX ABUSE IN LAWSUIT

    HONOLULU (AP) — A former child model and aspiring actor is accusing "X-Men" franchise director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him as a teenager in a federal lawsuit filed in Hawaii.
    The lawsuit filed Wednesday says the prominent director of the forthcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" forced Michael Egan III into sex during parties in California and Hawaii when he was 17 in the late 1990s.

    Singer's attorney, Marty Singer, said in a statement that the claims are absurd and defamatory.

    "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," said Marty Singer, who said he is not related to the director.

    "X-Men: Days of Future Past" is set for release May 23. It has an all-star cast, including Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Halle Berry and Patrick Stewart. It's the fifth film in the blockbuster franchise.

    Egan and his attorney, Jeff Herman, planned a news conference Thursday in Los Angeles.

    The lawsuit claims Egan was lured into a sex ring with promises of auditions for acting, modeling and commercial jobs. He was paid as an actor for a digital entertainment company, but forced to have sex with adult men at parties notorious within Hollywood's entertainment industry, the lawsuit said.

    The lawsuit says that Bryan Singer attended several of the parties and forced Egan into sex, giving him drugs and threatening Egan when he resisted advances. It does not accuse the director of luring Egan into the ring.

    "Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children," Herman said in a statement Wednesday night.

    The lawsuit does not specify a total dollar amount, but says Egan is seeking more than $75,000 on each of four accusations: intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault and invasion of privacy.

    The Associated Press does not typically name victims of sex abuse, but is naming Egan because the lawsuit was filed civilly, Egan's lawyer Herman identified him and said Egan planned to speak publicly.

    The lawsuit is possible in Hawaii because of a state law that temporarily suspends the statute of limitations in sex abuse cases.

    Bryan Singer, 48, has had a lengthy career behind the camera, directing several movies including "The Usual Suspects," ''Superman Returns" and "Jack the Giant Slayer."

    Herman has made a career of representing victims of sex abuse, filing lawsuits against organizations such as the Roman Catholic Church and Boy Scouts of America. In 2011, Herman won a $100 million verdict against a Catholic priest who was accused of molesting dozens of boys.

    Marty Singer represents many of Hollywood's elite, recently winning a case for actor Ryan O'Neal in which the Oscar-nominee was accused of improperly taking an Andy Warhol portrait of his longtime partner Farrah Fawcett without permission after her death. He also represented John Travolta in a series of lawsuits filed by masseurs who accused the actor of inappropriate conduct during massages.


    SEX ABUSE LAWSUIT AGAINST 'X-MEN' DIRECTOR 'FIRST OF MANY' AGAINST HOLLYWOOD, LAWYER VOWS


    by CHRISTIAN TOTO 17 Apr 2014, 1:48 PM PDT 113 POST A COMMENT
    A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week's lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks.

    Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer's legal team denies the charges.

    Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday's suit isn't an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash on abuse allegations.

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

    The issue was brought to the fore in recent years by former child star Corey Feldman. The star of Stand By Me, The Goonies and The Lost Boys opened up in his 2013 memoir about the sexual abuse he and fellow teen star Corey Haim endured in Hollywood at the height of their fame.

    Exclusive: Bryan Singer Faces New Teen Sex Assault Lawsuit

    by Tim TeemanMay 4, 2014 2:03 pm EDT

    Already fighting a lawsuit claiming he sexually assaulted a teenage boy in California and Hawaii, a new lawsuit alleges ‘X-Men’ director Bryan Singer, and Broadway producer Gary Goddard, sexually assaulted a British teenager.

    This is a tad graphic.

    He has got multiple identical suits against him, he is no where near out of the woods. He'll settle with all of these people ala Michael Jackson so none of it sees the light of day. This guy must be a friend of yours because coming to the defense of someone like this is just bizarre, there are too many allegations against him for it to be completely untrue.

    Same lawyer suing again looking for a payout... And you say he was guilty just because he looks like a deviant??? Nice.

    Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer (no relation to the director), maintains that the new allegations, like Egan's, are false.

    "After the substance of Mr. Herman's previous defamatory and fabricated filing in Hawaii was disproved based on unassailable evidence, Mr. Herman's desperation has led him to fabricate these new anonymous accusations against Mr. Singer, which we will also prove to be completely false," Marty Singer said in a statement.

    "It is time for the media and public to focus their attention on Mr. Herman's nefarious motives and tactics which seem to be driven solely by his need to shake down an innocent man like Bryan Singer," the attorney said. "We intend to seek sanctions against Mr. Herman for his reckless, unethical behavior."
