Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters next month, but it turns out that's not the only of his extremely questionable turn-of-the-century efforts he'll be revisiting this spring. A lawsuit filed yesterday in Hawaiian Federal Court reportedly alleges the director forced sex, drugs, and alcohol upon a 17-year-old back in 1999.
Plaintiff Michael Egan goes into some detail about experiences involving Singer and former Digital Entertainment Network chairman Marc Collins-Rector--notably, a registered sex offender, who has previously admitted to luring five minors across state lines for sexual purposes. Egan claims the two threatened him into flying out and attending some Hawaiian pool parties that do not sound nearly as fun as that inherently sounds. At these events, it's alleged that Singer coerced anal sex, reciprocal oral sex, fondling, cocaine, and alcoholic, possibly-laced drinks upon the plaintiff.
Singer's attorney Martin Singer has responded to the charges, calling the accusations "completely without merit.
"We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. 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."
Because you know how fanboys get when a new X-Men movie is coming out, and suddenly they want to reveal all the humiliating sexual abuse they endured.
