Bryan Singer reportedly sued for allegedly raping 17-year-old

In a shocking new development in the "every man in Hollywood is a creep" narrative of 2017, a lawsuit has been filed against X-Men director Bryan Singer for allegedly raping a 17-year-old boy on a yacht and then threatening him into silence. Further, the suit claims that Singer stripped Sanchez-Guzman down and then forcibly performed oral sex on him, despite pleas for Singer to stop.

He is also just the latest powerful Hollywood figure to face allegations of sexual assault and harassment, including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and film producer Brett Ratner.

It's said that when they entered one of the rooms, Singer allegedly thrusted his body onto Guzman, forced him to the floor, and shoved the then-minor's face against his crotch, demanding oral sex. The suit claims it was a party populated by young gay males, including the plaintiff, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Singer was on a yacht in the Seattle area back in 2003. a yacht owned by wealthy tech investor, Lester Waters. Singer allegedly also warned Sanchez-Guzman that if he came forward with his story, he would not be believed, and that Singer had the resources to ruin him. "Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case", an attorney for Singer told TMZ.

You may recall another man, Michael Egan, making similar claims against Singer and other industry power players in 2014.

"The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michel Egan".

Besides those two cases, Singer has been the subject of various other sexual misconduct allegations over the years.

Guzman claims he suffered "emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain".

As previously reported, Singer was recently fired from the Queen biopic project, Bohemian Rhapsody, after failing to show up on the set after American Thanksgiving.
