'X-Men' director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing 15-year-old boy at California mansion

Famous Hollywood director Bryan Singer has been accused in a new federal lawsuit of sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

The suit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Hawaii, accused the 48-year-old “X-Men” filmmaker of first preying on the 15-year-old aspiring actor at a party at a California mansion where underage boys were plied with drugs and alcohol and taken advantage of.

“The stories that I’ve heard of what went on at the estate are truly despicable,” the accuser’s lawyer, Miami attorney Jeff Herman, told the Daily News Wednesday night.

Herman identified the accuser as Michael Egan III. Egan, who is now in his 30s and will appear at a Thursday news conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in L.A., was forcibly sodomized by the director when he was 15 in the late-1990s, according to the suit. Singer had promised Egan a role in one of his movies and had numerous sexual encounters with the boy when he was 15 and 16, Herman told The News. Singer also allegedly brought Egan to Hawaii for multiple extended trips when he was 17.

Why do accusations like these often come out many years after the fact?

I would guess because abused kids are ashamed of what happened and want to forget about it, but eventually find that they can't.

MONEY? A charge easy to make and if one can sob at the appropriate time one can make a fortune.

Also they don't want to wind up sleeping with the fishes.

That's what happens to anyone who dares to threaten a powerful pedophile ring.

Because there is a huge amount of shame involved and fear.

I can't imagine being raped as a teenager, then having to tell my parents, especially if I was a male. Teenagers go through enough emotional ups and downs, can't imagine having to deal with that too.

Surprised? Not particularly.

But Singer has a movie coming out and there's no such thing as bad PR. Timing on this is fascinating.

X-Men were a rip-off of DC’s Doom Patrol.

Child actors are drugged then raped. That’s why many can’t live after they grow up.

Because kids can’t get help, thats why they are singled out. They only seek to have things set right when PTSD becomes acute later in life.

“The stories that I’ve heard of what went on at the estate are truly despicable,”

The Hollywood elite disagree...

I had never heard of Singer until this morning, when I read this story on another site. Multiple commenters there stated that Singer's sexual trysts with underage men were well known and provided links to Hollywood discussion sites. I can personally attest that Singer's parties featuring underaged men and special guests were discussed and joked about years ago, while not confirming the accusations in those discussions as fact,

As for the timing, Hawaii changed its statue of limitations for child sexual abuse on April 24, 2012. The change gave victims who had claims predating April 24, 2012 until April 24, 2014 to file claims. This plaintiff appears to be filing under the deadline.

How he can prove charges after all these years remains a mystery.

"How does he prove anything after all those years?"

How many years does DNA remain viable?

He may still have a little black dress from those days.

in 1998 at a mansion in Encino, Calif., that was the site of regular drug-fueled underage sex attacks.

Singer, whose first hit as a director was 1995’s “The Usual Suspects,” allegedly met Egan, then 15, in 1998 at a mansion in Encino, Calif., that was the site of regular drug-fueled underage sex romps. The suit says Singer forced Egan into a hot-tub hookup.

Apparently, the kid was okay with this behavior . . . Until it was clear he would get no movie rolls out of the sodomy - just a few weeks at the four seasons in Hawaii

Sad. With the way our culture is degenerating, I expect our courts to legalize this dreadful behavior at any time.
