Director Bryan Singer sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old

The event, which was serving alcohol, was hosted by Lester Waters, a "wealthy tech investor who frequently hosted parties for young gay males", according to the complaint. Sanchez-Guzman claims Singer claims raped him in 2003, when he was 17. Then, Singer "lured Cesar into a room, shut the door and demanded that Cesar perform oral sex", as described in a press release from his attorney.

Afterward, the suit claims, Singer contacted Sanchez-Guzman to dangle the promise of a Hollywood career in exchange for his silence. "Guzman claims he pleaded with Singer to stop, but he kept going. causing him to choke".

When he refused, "Singer forced him into acts of oral and anal sex". The lawsuit states that Sanchez-Guzman was a minor at the time of the alleged attack. He says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated him, all while ignoring Guzman's pleas.

The lawsuit is seeking compensation for damages against Sanchez-Guzman, including "emotional distress, mental anguish, physical and mental pain and suffering, a decrease in his ability to enjoy life".

The director, however, vehemently denies the allegations.




Director Bryan Singer, who has directed X-Men films and was sacked this week from his Queen biopic, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy. The representative added that other defendants in that case later sued Herman for malicious prosecution, and that those charges were eventually settled.

Singer has been in headlines all week after 20th Century Fox fired Singer from its Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" for "unprofessional" behavior. Guzman's attorney is the same who represented Egan, who later dropped his case.

It's not the first time Singer has been accused of sexual assault: In 2014, Michael Egan filed suit, claiming he was forced drugs and raped by Singer and former NBC Entertainment president Garth Ancier at a Hollywood party. In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that casae once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart'. "We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did", the statement said.

Singer, known for directing The Usual Suspects and four X-Men movies, was ousted from the long-gestating project following an extended absence from the London set that resulted in a production shutdown.
