Bryan Singer Sued for Alleged Rape of 17-Year Old
Bryan Singer is once again under investigation for sexual assault.
In troubling news broken by TMZ, the director (The Usual Suspects, many X-Men movies) is accused of forcing a 17-year old boy to perform oral sex…
… prior to raping this same teenager.
The plaintiff is named Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by the aforementioned website, Singer was a guest at a party on a yacht owned by tech investor Lester Waters back in 2003.
The party was largely populated by young gay males.
The legal documents allege that Singer offered to take Guzman on a tour of the gigantic boat.
When the two arrived at one of the rooms, Singer is accused of throwing his body on top of Guzman… forced him to the floor… and shoving Guzman’s face against his crotch.
The director then, allegedly, demanded Guzman give him a blow job.
It gets worse, per the lawsuit:
Singer reportedly pulled his penis out of Guzman’s mouth, smacked him in the face with it, ignored pleas to stop and made Guzman choke when he reinserted his penis into the young man’s mouth.
Singer is then accused of forcing oral sex on Guzman before anally penetrating his victim, despite constant protestations for Singer to stop.
The lawsuit was filed by Jeff Herman.
He claims Singer later approached Guzman and used his status in Hollywood to tell Guzman he could get him a job in exchange for his silence.
Guzman also says Singer warned him no one would believe him; and that Singer could hire people to ruin his reputation if he told anyone about what transpired.
Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain.
This isn’t the first time Singer has been accused of acting horribly inappropriately around young men.
In May of 2014, he was accused of assaulting a British teenager named Michael Egan.
In August of that same year, a similar allegation was leveled against the director and producer.
A rep for Singer tells TMZ the following in defense of his client:
“The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan. Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case.”
The rep adds that Herman was sued by other defendants related to the Egan case for malicious prosecution and that he settled those suits, acknowledging in the process that Egan’s claims were false.
