“X-Men” Director Bryan Singer Accused Of Drug-Fueled Sexual Abuse Of Teenage Boy

x-men-days-of-future-past-bryan-singer-sentinel-600x399-541x360In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in a Hawaii federal court, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer was accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy back in 1999.

The plaintiff in the case —Michael Egan, who was named in a press release by his lawyers — claims he was 17 when Singer supplied him with drugs and alcohol and forcibly sodomized him among these other allegations: battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.

It’s no real secret that Singer is fond of the twinky set — whether its getting involved with Sean Cody models or throwing notoriously fleshy Hollywood parties — but the claims in the suit paint a more predatory picture.

It also names Marc Collins-Rector, the former chairman of Digital Entertainment Network, who was convicted of luring minors across state lines for sexual acts in 2004 as being involved with Singer in luring boys to a property in Encino, CA where drugs like Ecstasy, Xanax, Rohypnol, and Vicodin were handed out liberally. And booze. Lots of booze.

Here’s one encounter detailed in the accusation:

Collins-Rector ordered Plaintiff out of the pool, and Defendant Singer hugged Plaintiff and grabbed his bare buttocks. They then went to the jacuzzi where Collins-Rector had Plaintiff sit on his lap and fondled Plaintiff’s genitals. Collins-Rector then passed Plaintiff to Defendant Singer and Plaintiff was made to sit on Defendant Singer’s lap. Defendant Singer provided an alcoholic beverage to Plaintiff and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing. Defendant Singer told Plaintiff how “this group” controls Hollywood, and that he was sexy. Defendant Singer masturbated Plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited Plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him which Plaintiff resisted. Defendant Singer flagrantly disregarded Plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced Plaintiff’s head underwater to make Plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When Plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, Defendant Singer demanded that he continue which Plaintiff refused. Defendant Singer then forced Plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized Plaintiff.

The suit also claims that when Egan was 17, Singer flew him to Hawaii on multiple occasions, and during the first one, forced him to inhale cocaine and engage in oral and anal sex. He also claims to be assaulted on subsequent trips.

Egan is being represented by Jeff Herman, who you may remember from a certain very high profile Elmo suit from 2012.

We’re sure to hear more about this in the coming days – Egan and Herman are scheduled to appear at a press conference in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

      Why would someone willingly go on trips with someone who was abusing them sexually and otherwise?
      Clearly he must have consented to some degree if he kept going along with it.

      Sounds like an attempt to get money to me. unless there is something i’m missing.

      @razmos @msteve: You realize of course that those are the same arguments many people use to defend clergy members accused of sexually abusing children, right? We can’t have two moral standards regarding child sexual abuse. Either it’s a repugnant crime or it’s not. It shouldn’t matter whether its a Catholic priest or a Hollywood director who thinks it’s okay to use their power and position to sexually abuse a minor.

      He has a bit of a history apparently,

      Singer cast unknown hunk Alex Burton as Pyro in “X-Men” after the pair had a hot tub session at a Hollywood party, reports radarmagazine.com. Burton has not appeared in a single movie since “X-Men.”

      Following the filming of Singer’s “Apt Pupil” several years ago, a number of young male extras on the movie filed lawsuits claiming they had been bullied into stripping naked for a shower scene, and that Singer had held private screenings of the soapy footage at his home.

      I’m uncomfortable with the fact that my initial reaction is to want to insta-defend Singer because he’s a successful gay guy that created movies I loved. It’s similar to the way people defend Woody Allen and Roman Polanski when this topic comes up.

      If he’s a manipulative predator then it shouldn’t matter that I like his movies or that this guy and his lawyer are gold diggers.

      @Cam: I believe that was Aaron Stanford as Pyro and he’s done a lot more than just that film. And I too find this all rather suspect. I think Singer makes an easy mark because he is something of a casting couch whore when it comes to pretty young things, but the promise of being (however fleetingly) in one of his films has probably lubed up the chassis of more than one willing hopeful. I doubt drugged coercion is necessary. Singer, while not model gorgeous, is still way more attractive than most old hollywood queens for whom scores of youngins have willingly dropped their britches and done things they likely regretted.

      Pffh, sounds like it has been made up by homophobes: Especially that completely absurd and gratuitous story about Singer saying “this group” controls hollywood, which adds nothing to the case of the plaintiff. Honestly, if gays controled Hollywood the movies would be a (w)hole lot different. And realistically, if I had gotten heavily sedated and raped 15 years ago, the last thing I would remember (if any) would be that story.
      It’s just Ridiculous.

      I don’t care whether or not it has been a long time since the alleged abuse or if that guy is famous, if it is true, then he needs to pay the price. It is beyond me that someone would force a 17 year old to do drugs and have sex with him, but I am a firm believer in “innocent until proven guilty”. In case anyone didn’t know, forcing actors to sleep with directors is commonplace in Hollywood, and it’s a disgusting practice of preying on younger and naive people, and it makes me furious to believe more than half of them get away with it.

      @Kieran:

      Please, this is total blackmail.

      I would agree with your take if Singer didn’t have a major TV show coming next week and a major movie coming out in the next few weeks…which in Hollywood terms mean

      MONEY!

      And his age is all over the place, he’s 33 now. And the time frame is…15 to 16 years ago. Do the math…he was not 15 when it started…he was 17. That’s a big lie. One is illegal in 48 of 50 states, the other is only illegal in 5 states (and there are clauses in every state except 1).

      And I’m sorry, Singer forced him to snort coke and made him towards the end, when he was 18, go to Hawaii?

      This gay baiting at its worst! It’s only makes news because it’s man on young man.

      Ted nugent does this all the time, and is proud of it…

      He hired a knowingly slimy lawyer and is purposely trying to confuse how long ago (15 to 16 years ago) with how old he was at the time (which was 17 to 18years of age).

      At this point, I’m not sure if a crime was commented…was he 17?

      Singer is a sleeze bag no doubt about it. Everything I know about him makes me hate the guy. If this kid was involved with this nonsense why wait until now to speak up? And he was 17. When I was 17 and didn’t want to suck someone’s knob, I didn’t. And if they persisted I let them know if they didn’t back off, I’d cut it off. Come on boy.

      I hope nobody thought I was defending him with my comment, because I wasn’t.

      All I was doing was pointing out that the facts are dodgy, and many other commenters have done an even better job of pointing out just how dodgy this whole thing is.

      Why would someone (and he’s 17, not a minor) willingly continue to be around a person who abuses him like that if he didn’t expect to get something out of it. and now so far down the line make a big deal over how it affected him.

      It all sounds like a moneygrab to me.

      As long as the person is underage, they can want it, beg for it, get it, and then sue you for everything you’ve got. You deserve it. You are the ADULT, and it is up to ADULTS to refuse the temptation. The only question here is “was an ADULT was unlawfully interacting with a minor”. If that is proven to be true, Singer (and anyone else) deserves punishment.

      To be truthful, I believe this will quickly vanish under a cloud of money. Singer should stay away from minors. period.

      I wasn’t surprised at all to see this particular headline.

      I lived in Los Angeles back in 2000. A friend (at the time) who worked at Fox Studios told me the entire story. He also went on to say how Singer had a pattern of meeting these boys on location shoots and he’d bring them back to Hollywood with promises of fame and fortune (and all they got was sex and drugs and eventually turned out on the streets when he’d finish them). Anyway, after this former friend met the boy he told me about how after Singer threw the boy aside to move onto the next boy he gave the boy a place to stay until he could return to his family (he was working the streets to make money prostituting because singer wouldn’t help). He also continued to tell me that when the boy was staying with him he would get him drunk (which the boy did willingly) and have unprotected sex with him.

      At the time I didn’t 100% believe the story, when I lived in Hollywood these kind of stories would always be floating around.

      I also think the timing is totally suspect. Plus he didn’t sue anyone else but those that could make him lots of money in a lawsuit. I hate to say it but I wonder how much of this sex was “consensual” and when he didn’t get any of the fame or money he was “promised” that he finally chose to take a legal route to his fame.

      @IcarusD: He was in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene between Rogue and Iceman. It was less than 15 seconds of screen time. If that.

      The facts so far are really fishy. Especially going with Singer to Hawaii and being “forced” to snort coke (Coerced, maybe, but forced?). But Singer does have a reputation. Where there’s smoke…

      If it’s true I hope the guy has more evidence that this because he will get chewed up in court if this is it.

      The accuser is sketchy and the mainstream media is clearly playing into hoary old prejudices that hold gay men prey on children. Having said that, the accuser’s lawyer is both blue-chip and versed in molestation lawsuits, and wouldn’t have taken this case if he thought it would fall apart. And, inescapably, Singer has been widely rumored to engage in exactly this sort of behavior his whole career; his freaking movies themselves practically always feature sexualized teen boys, fer chrissakes. What often happens in these situations — when the accusations are true — is that the initial accuser emboldens other victims to step forward too. If that happens here it will speak volumes, and of course Singer will be sunk.

I’ve got a feeling that most of this is true but by 17 this kid (man) knew exactly what he was doing and getting into. At 33 he’s probably not getting flown anywhere and Singer is more famous than ever so why not cash in.

      @Bopper1: Of course, that goes without saying.

      A well-brought-up teen with responsible parents has very little need for legal or police protection from abuse of this kind.

      It is the “bad kids” — the drug users, the runaways, the homeless, those clinging to a marginal existence on the fringes of the entertainment industry, those with neglectful or pandering parents — who become vulnerable to coercion or exploitation with drugs or promises of the spotlight or both.

      The fact that they are vulnerable in this way does not mean that they “deserve” their abuse.

      It means that they are the exact ones who most need protection.

      Sounds like an attempt to get money to me. unless there is something i’m missing.

      Here’s what you might be missing, though I have no way of knowing for sure: The kid went along with it because he himself was gay or bi or “curious” and had some sort of “DILF lust” for the not-bad-looking Singer, and also because, hey, drugs can be kinda fun and Singer was generous with ‘em.

      At the same time, however, the kid had mixed feelings about the whole arrangement, and definitely didn’t sign on for being plowed up the wazoo, even though he loved the idea of making out and wankin’ with a 35-year-old “young daddy” who was handing out booze that a 17-year-old can’t legally buy and drugs that most 17-year-olds can’t afford.

      If my suggested scenario is true, then at the very least, Singer was a selfish and irresponsible gay adult taking outrageous advantage of a naïve gay youth. Even if the part about the forcible sodomy never happened, this strikes me as possibly being “gay on gay” abuse and exploitation.

      That’s what i’m tending to believe might have happened. Its difficult. All the rumors around Singer and his behavior towards naive men are, just that rumors. But then again, where there’s smoke there’s fire.

      As far as it being 15 years later, I don’t think it matters. I think we’re led to believe if shit happens to you and you don’t act right away, then you just have to deal with it and move on.

      @Razmos:

      I share your confusion. And it’s not like a priest where someone raised that way sees a priest as a man of God (and therefore to “attack” him in any way is to “attack God”) and to speak out against a priest is to generally bring down condemnation and shame on one’s self (though even then I’ve read of a girl that age who did press charges against the priest that raped her, but the church moved the priest to another country in response, don’t know how the girl was treated for having gotten rid of a priest many people probably loved or bringing “shame” on their church which would be her fault in their eyes rather than of the church).

      Offhand the best I can think of that would make this a reasonable lawsuit to me is that this happened while he was on drugs (and that Singer repeatedly provided him with more than he ever had before), the boy then tried to bury it and was too shamed to talk about it, there was an element of blackmail involved (kids can be easily fooled) and/or the kid accepted these future offers while already flying high on drugs as the inflicted sexual abuse led to many years of drug abuse and psychiatric treatment and recently got clean of drugs when he then traced it to this incident. That’s a lot of assumptions, however, and it would help his case (at least if I were on the jury) if he promised all (at least 90%) that he received to say RAINN or some other group to help prevent future victims.

      That said, I can see both sides: I can see Singer as a sleazeball and I can see this guy as an opportunist who is about enriching himself rather than seeking any sort of justice…heck, maybe he wants the money for more drugs that Singer and other men won’t provide for him anymore. Another possibility is that a psychiatrist he’s seeing now is the one wanting the money and has convinced him this will get him his self-respect back (when now the psychiatrist is the one taking advantage of him rather than Singer). A sleazy lawyer boyfriend pushing him to do this would also fit the bill.

      As for me I’ve been giving appropriate responses to adult male perverts who tried to get into my pants since I was 12 years old (even got suspended from school over one of those responses), and I’m female, so it’s hard for me to see this from his PoV as this would not have happened to me (meaning as described, not that I wouldn’t be raped or exploited under different conditions). But then had I been addicted to drugs and/or had I’d been willing to do ANYTHING to get my foot in the Hollywood door then who knows?

      That said, a kid a kid and an adult is an adult, and adults are expected to show some restraint no matter how much kids offer themselves (not asserting this guy offered himself boldly to Singer). I don’t buy into “well s/he agreed to it therefore it’s okay” even if the kid sought it out willingly for the same reason that an underage teen who WANTS to sign up to join the military to fight in a war, begs to do so, would still get the military officer in trouble who agreed to let him sign and then send him to the front lines (and a law suit years later might result from it). Age of consent laws aren’t based on the idea that kids are innocent, but that they’re stupid and easily manipulated by those who don’t have their best interest at heart.

      To the asshats who think he was “asking for it” and is money hungry.

      The boy was 17. That is not legal age. Singer is in big doo-doo regardless if it was all consensual.

      “The age of consent in California is 18. It is illegal for anyone to engage in sexual intercourse with a minor (someone under the age of 18), unless they are that person’s spouse. California employs a tiered system where the greater the difference in age, the greater the penalty. If the person engaging in sex with a minor is less than 3 years older or younger than the minor, then they are guilty of a misdemeanor. If they are more than 3 years older than the minor then they are guilty of a felony. Those over the age of 21 engaging in sex with those under 16 are subjected to more harsh penalties.”

      When you’re 17, you don’t know what’s morally right. It may have taken years for him to come to terms with what happened. Grill the SOB.

      I read another article that states the boy was only 15 at the time, not 17 as stated in Queerty.

      @wakeupscreaming: The boy wasn’t of age, even though some states allow 17 year olds to consent to sex, at the federal level it is 18 years old. Basically, if he took the kid outside of state lines to have sex with him, even in a state where the age of consent is 17, it’s illegal unless you already live there. This is a case for the FBI not LAPD. I’m disappointed in the gay community that they’re so easy to dismiss this case because apparently we’re an “easy target”… We are an easy target, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that there are people who do commit these crimes in our community just as often as in the straight community. If I am correct, wasn’t this director the same one that was rumored to have been sleeping with a gay for pay pornstar. I heard in Hollywood that the rich and powerful are handed a list of boy toys from the porn industry to sleep with(prostitution). I’m tired of these people getting away with these crimes. If he did commit the crime, then I hope he rots in hell. For god’s sake, the kid was 17, at that age we don’t know how to make choices properly. I’m 18 and I know I’m still making mistakes, and I’m trying to cope with them, but if I was raped, I wouldn’t want the LGBT community to turn on me and say I was asking for it. I’m seriously disappointed in our community, defending an alleged rapist.

      Maybe Singer raped the boy. Maybe he made promises to a young and vulnerable mind in exchange for sex that he had no intentions of keeping. If either or true Singer is a repulsive human being. I doubt Singer is a complete victim if a victim at all in this. What you put out into the world you get back. If you take advantage of people then you can only expect that one day people are going to take advantage of you. Ego’s reap what ego;s sow and it sounds like no matter what, Singer is quite an egotist who sows a lot of bad karma for himself.

      Oh please, you people disgust me even more than usual!

      Anyone who lives and goes out in West Hollywood should not be surprised. He has been parading around underaged these obviosuly kids for years, getting them into bars and loading them up with alcohol. And by underaged, I’m not talking about 18.

      I guy were definitely cute, but I felt bad for them, those people don’t do anything for you, they just them and throw em out, but would could you do, calll the police…

      All you can do it just engage ‘cognitive dissonance’ drives and pretend the kid only looks young and is really 21 or something.

      I mean the last time I saw onw, has has a string of several, even the usual bitter and hardened queens couldn’t believe it. You literally heard gasps dispersed throughout as people noticed him and his KinderCare entourage.

      so what if it was? should singer have given him what he promised?

      besides the fact a 16 year cannot consent to anything.

      @Kieran: I’m not saying it wasn’t possible, but it IS a bit suspicious. I’m remembering the Michael Jackson case, the family of the boy who was claiming MJ molested him, they later confessed it was made up. Only after MJ died of course -.- Some people really wouldn’t care if they ruin someone’s life over money.

      And how fuc**ing dare anyone out there make fun of Singer, after all he’s been through? The boy turns out to be a user, a cheater, and now he’s going through his legal battle. Leave Bryan SInger alone! Leave him alone. He makes all these nice movies for you and all you care about is scandals, and making money off of him. You’re lucky he is even making movies for you, bastards. Leave him alone. He’s a human! He hasn’t deflowered a minor in YEARS. Queerty, is not professional to publicly bash someone who is going through a hard time. If you have a trouble with Singer, you deal with ME, cause he can’t defend himself right now.

      Interesting how 13-year-olds and even the occasional 12-year-old can be tried as an adult in this country with no great outcry, but a 17-year-old letting someone suck his dick for profit is a child incapable of making rational decisions. But then, of course, that child’s life has been “destroyed” by “sex” so I suppose it all makes sense.

      Singer better look out now. Next time I see him with some underage twink at a WeHo bar, I’m calling the police.

      We now know for sure that these kids he’s parading around do not just ‘LOOK YOUNG’ which is what everyone is telling themselves. Now you know 100% he’s a pedophile and these kids are victims.

      I just saw him a couple months ago with some 8 year old proto-twink at XXXXXX. I don’t want to say the club name since I don’t want to get them in trouble, but bar owners out there, LOOK OUT! next time you let in underage children with obviously fake id’s just because some pedophile dropped a grand or two.

      @MyDadPulledOut: I was kidding, I was imitating the epic speech by the insane youtube celebrity, Chris Crocker.

      But in all seriousness, I don’t think Singer should be prosecuted for having sex with a boy that was some 150 days from achieving adulthood. The boy was a hooker and continues to be a hooker. The boy just wants easy money to live off of someone. Singer is the victim, not the aggressor.

      @Billy Budd: Yes, in this case, but Singer has been with children who could not have been any older than 14 nor 15, FACT! I remember the club manager shitting a brick when saw that little in his VIP section with the crew from PBS’s Electric Factory, he didn’t want to kick out singer, but he also didn’t want to get shut down.

      Everyone just told themselves that the guy must just “look” young.

      @MyDadPulledOut: Well, if he likes little kids, he has a major problem. I do agree that little kids should not have sex with adults. That is the sin and crime of catholic priests, our enemies. A kid that has sex with adults gets scarred. It is wrong.

      If you tell me that you have hard evidence that he molests kids, then I must agree that he should be punished and prevented from doing it again.

      @Billy Budd: Well, honestly I have no evidence. I can’t card these children he drags around with him.

      All the blogs are telling us how the age of consent is this or that, but the kids I’ve seen could not have been older than 15, I’m it was over the top out of control. Everyone in the immediate area were literally in shock telling themselves, naaah, he just looks young, he can’t possibly be… type of thing.

      You even have this a-hole over at weho confidential, the epitome of west hollywood GARBAGE defending him:

      I guess West Hollywod at it’s core is no different than any redneck small town 5hitville, like Steubenville: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steubenville_High_School_rape_case

      Where all the inbred hicks defended their precious football players. Seeing people come out and defend this guy is so hypocritical it boggels the mind.

      @MyDadPulledOut: I think you’re understating and being too kind, dude, when you say that it’s merely “mind-boggling hypocrisy.”

      I mean, the rapists in that Steubenville case were basically about the same age as the young men that Bryan Singer somehow manages to confuse with FleshLights™. Which is to say, also about same age as the young woman in Stuebenville who was misused as a masturbation toy by the young football players.

      Bryan Singer was about 35 years old at the time of the “alleged events”; he’s now close to 50, but it appears that he STILL can’t tell the difference between a teenage boy and a FleshLight™.

      And what especially bugs me is that Bryan Singer is so much associated with a film franchise about special heroes who tried to use their superhuman talents to help normal people. Even the “bad” mutants were interested in helping others of their own kind, and not merely in being predators who use their special advantages to abuse and exploit the weak.

      In contrast, director Victor Salva also has a notorious fondness for much young guys, and in at least one confirmed case, messed around with a dude who was several years short of the age of consent.

      But still, I can watch and enjoy Salva’s Jeepers Creepers with an untroubled conscience because it’s a well-made and somewhat innovative horror flick that’s all about a hideous predatory monster with a particular jones for good-looking male teenagers, and is NOT about wonderful superheroes who are looked up to and admired by young audiences.

      If my point isn’t clear, I mean to say that Bryan Singer makes movies about models of virtuous manhood like Wolverine, and about righteously angry “outsiders” like Mystique. (“It’s people like YOU who made me afraid to go to school when I was young, Senator!” [kick! punch! kick! SMACK!])

      But Mr. Bryan Singer himself has in fact turned out to be the slimy winged demon from Jeepers Creepers, who devours cute young men.

      Read the story again, Mr. No-Reading-Skills. The 17-year-old was allegedly forced to suck Bryan Singer’s dick, not vice versa.

      This guy is just hoping he gets paid a settlement so that singer avoids having to go to court even if he is innocent who wants to be dragged through a court case like that?

      I have been to party’s like that where the host is wealthy twinks are there things get a little randy but it doesn’t take someone 15 years to realize they were raped if they in fact were.
