'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Hit With Another Sex Abuse Lawsuit as Accusations Mount
More accusations have come out against X-Men: Days of Futures Past director Bryan Singer. The director, whom was recently accused of abusing then-teenager Michael Egan in the '90s, has now been accused of sexual abuse along with producer Gary Goddard by an unnamed person currently living in the UK. The man, who is currently labeled "John Doe, no. 117" in the case, alleges that Singer contacted him through social media and told Doe that he had "good looks" and that Singer would aid him in pursuing an acting career.
Doe alleges that he was then invited to the Superman Returns premiere after party, where he was sexually assaulted in a hotel room by both Singer and Goddard.
Doe is represented by Jeff Herman, the same man who filed the lawsuit last month on behalf of Egan. Singer is represented by lawyer Marty Singer (no relation) who released this statement regarding both suits made against his client:
Mr. Herman's desperation has led him to fabricate these new anonymous accusations against Mr. Singer, which we will also prove to be completely false.
Goddard's attorney also released a statement regarding Goddard's involvement in the case:
It is a sad indictment on society that when once spurious claims making false, serious and highly damaging allegations have been made — especially where compensation is sought — that other similar claims may follow. The allegations made against Mr. Goddard are vehemently denied and will be vigorously defended at any trial of these matters and Mr. Goddard is entirely confident that he will be fully vindicated.
Hopefully the truth will prevail.
