Bryan Singer Accused of Sodomizing a Teenage Boy

A lawsuit filed Wednesday in Hawaii federal court accuses X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing a teenage boy in 1999.

The plaintiff, Michael Egan, claims Singer stuck it in his butt when he was 17 and that he gave him drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii more than once in 1999. His suit claims battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion, and it seeks unspecified damages.

Marty Singer, Singer’s attorney, calls the suit “absurd and defamatory.”

Also mentioned in the lawsuit is Marc Collins-Rector, former chairman of Digital Entertainment Network and registered sex offender. He plead guilty in 2004 of luring minors across state lines for sexual acts. The suit accuses him of initiating the sexual abuse of Egan and arranging Singer to assault Egan at a house in Encino, CA.

The lawsuit alleges that Collins-Rector and his Digital Entertainment Network investors, including Singer, would lure young men to a house dubbed the M & C Estate in Encino to intoxicate and sexually assault a number of teenage boys and that many in the Hollywood industry were aware of the “notorious parties.”

Egan, an aspiring actor and model at the time, claims that Singer provided him with several drugs, including cocaine, a pill identified as “green triangle” which is believed to be a reference to the drug Ecstasy, Xanax, Rohypnol, and Vicodin or Percocet, in addition to alcoholic beverages.

The suit claims that Egan was 14 or 15 when he moved to Los Angeles with his family to pursue and acting career. A friend from a small private school in the San Fernando Valley, Scott Shackley, introduced him to his older brother, Chad, in 1998. Chad Shackley, according to the suit, lived in the M & C Estate in Encino with Collins-Rector, and Egan Scott Shackley would visit. Eventually, Egan was placed on the DEN payroll, and provided with extravagant gifts, and taken via private jet on various trips, along with the opportunity to audition for acting and modeling jobs, the suit states.

But the parties at the M&C Estate were “well known and notorious” among “many men in the Hollywood entertainment industry,” the suit states, as they “typically sordid and featured sexual contact between adult males an the many teenage boys who were present,” along with the distribution of alcohol and drugs.

The suit details one of the incidents at M &C Estate between Collins-Rector, Singer and Egan.

Collins-Rector ordered Plaintiff out of the pool, and Defendant Singer hugged Plaintiff and grabbed his bare buttocks. They then went to the jacuzzi where Collins-Rector had Plaintiff sit on his lap and fondled Plaintiff’s genitals. Collins-Rector then passed Plaintiff to Defendant Singer and Plaintiff was made to sit on Defendant Singer’s lap. Defendant Singer provided an alcoholic beverage to Plaintiff and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing. Defendant Singer told Plaintiff how “this group” controls Hollywood, and that he was sexy. Defendant Singer masturbated Plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited Plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him which Plaintiff resisted. Defendant Singer flagrantly disregarded Plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced Plaintiff’s head underwater to make Plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When Plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, Defendant Singer demanded that he continue which Plaintiff refused. Defendant Singer then forced Plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized Plaintiff.

Egan also claims that when he was 17, he was flown to Hawaii to stay at the Paul Mitchell estate. On the first trip, he was told to spend the first two nights in a room with Singer. He says singer forced him to do coke and then have oral and anal sex. Something similar also happened on a second trip to Hawaii.

Obviously serious allegations against Bryan Singer. Naturally, this suit coinciding with the big media push for Days of Future Past is suspect. No one knows what actually happened if anything but it’s pretty clear this guy wants a big payday. You want the bad press to go away? A million dollars will do just fine. *Strokes handlebar mustache*

There’s also the question that if this happened to him the first time, why go back to Hawaii to get raped a second time?

Not so fun fact: Singer was sued by two 14-year-old extras who allege he filmed them naked for a shower scene in Apt Pupil which was more for his private collection than anything else.
