The Hollywood director Bryan Singer, best known for directing X-Men has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old male.

According to The Wrap, court documents obtained by the outlet, show that the X-Men Director Bryan Singer, 48, is being accused of drugging, raping and ‘using his power to exploit a teenage boy’ dating back to 1999.

According to a press release, plantif Michael Egan said that:

‘Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.’

Marty Singer, Lawyer for (Bryan) Singer said that the lawsuit was, ‘completely without merit.’

‘We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit,” said Martin Singer. “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.’

Michael Egan was an aspiring actor and model at the time of the alleged assault and claims that he flew to Hawaii to meet Singer for sex on a few occasions.
