Read on to get the latest on director Bryan Singer, who joins the growing list of pedophiles and sexual abusers in the entertainment industry…
The suit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, claims Bryan Singer later approached Guzman, said he was a powerful Hollywood producer and he could help Guzman get into acting. According to the victim, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, Singer forced oral sex and anal penetration while aboard a yacht in Seattle, Wash. After the incident occured, Guzman says Singer warned him no one would believe him. He also said the director would ruin his reputation if he was to tell.
Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain.
Singer denies the charge which states:
“The sexual abuse has caused Cesar to experience severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life.”
A representative for Singer said in a statement to The Wrap:
Singer “categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end.”
“Cesar Sanchez-Guzman apparently claims that he did not remember this alleged incident from 2003 until now. Significantly, when Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events. The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014. In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that case once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart. Egan and his attorneys then found themselves as defendants in a malicious prosecution action brought by some of the individuals who Egan previously sued. In an apology to those individuals, Egan’s attorney acknowledged the claims that had been filed were ‘untrue and provably false.’ Notwithstanding his track record, this same lawyer is coming after Bryan again. We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did. And once Bryan prevails, he will pursue his own claims for malicious prosecution.”
If you recall, in 2014, Egan alleged in the lawsuit filed in Hawaii that he was raped by Singer. He went on to claim that Bryan Singer also forced him to take cocaine, and provided him with drugs and alcohol. Egan later withdrew his lawsuit.
It’s interesting how this news surfaces just days after Bryan Singer was fired after leaving the set of the Fredie Mercury biopic.
