Singer accused of molesting a teenager, X-Men latest release on May 23

Bryan Singer, X-Men director, has been accused of coercing a teenager into committing sexual acts between 1998 and 1999 by promising him a part in a Marvel Comics X-Men film.

 

In a statement, the director said, “The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I’ve decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film.”

 

Filed on April 16, the plaintiff, Michael F. Egan III, stated that he was promised a part in the X-Men films for sexual favors in 1998 and 1999 in California and Hawaii.

 

With his latest movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, hitting theaters on May 23, Singer has decided not to participate in the upcoming media events as well until this controversy most probably boils over.

 

After thanking fans and friends for their support, he also mentioned that the facts will finally reveal how deceptive this allegation is.

 

As for Singer’s lawyer, he had denied the allegations when they were first made public but was quick to follow it up with a statement which pointed out that this lawsuit was filed so as to capitalize, in terms of publicity, on the release of Singer’s new movie which is due in a few weeks.
