On the eve of what should be THE big summer blockbuster flick, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has been accused of sex abuse:
The plaintiff, Michael Egan III, accuses Singer of forcing him into sex during parties in California and Hawaii when Egan was 17 years old in 1999, reports the Associated Press. Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, said in a statement that the claims are "absurd and defamatory."
“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 AP reports.
Hollywood's record of such cases -- if this is true -- ain't great. Roman Polanski, anyone? But let's give Singer the benefit of the doubt, obviously. Innocent until proven guilty.Posted by Hube at April 17, 2014 01:33 PM | TrackBack
