Bryan Singer reportedly sued for allegedly raping 17-year-old

09 December 2017

Singer was at a Seattle-area party on a yacht owned by tech investor Lester Waters. The suit claims it was a party populated by young gay males, including the plaintiff, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.

Sanchez-Guzman was 17 at the time, and was allegedly given a tour of the boat by Singer, according to court filings obtained by Deadline.

The legal complaint says that Singer "thrust his body" on Sanchez-Guzman, forced him to the floor and forced him to engage in oral sex.

The documents provide a graphic account of the alleged incident, claiming that Singer forced himself on Guzman, who "pleaded with [Singer] to stop" throughout the ordeal. After the then-teenager refused, the lawsuit says, Singer pushed him on the bed and sexually assaulted him. The lawsuit states that Sanchez-Guzman was a minor at the time of the alleged attack. It then accuses Singer of "forcibly" raping him.

You Can Now Watch Amazon Prime Video on Your Apple TV
Now everyone can take a deep breath and relax: Amazon Prime Video is only a button click away on your Apple TV device. That said , Amazon stopped selling Apple TV back in 2015 strictly because of Apple TV's lack of a Prime Video app .

Later, the director allegedly told Guzman that he was a "producer in Hollywood and that he could help Cesar get into acting as long as Cesar never said anything about the incident".

Sanchez-Guzman is asking for compensation for damages related to experiencing "severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life".

An attorney for Singer said in a statement Thursday that the filmmaker, best-known for directing "The Usual Suspects" and the "X-Men" series, "categorically denies" the allegations.

Singer denied the accusations through a statement given by his attorney.

Kepler Cheuvreux said the pending tax and accounting investigations "could show severe irregularities". Steinhoff shares traded 64% lower at €1.08 as of 16:02 in Frankfurt.

A rep for Singer told TMZ, which first reported the news, "The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan".

Sanchez-Guzman is being represented by Jeffrey Herman, a Miami lawyer who previously sued Singer in 2004 on behalf of Michael Egan III.

Film studio 20th Century Fox fired Singer this week from his role as director of "Bohemian Rhapsody", a biopic of the band Queen. Within months, Egan's case was dismissed, and Herman eventually paid a settlement and apologized to two of the executives, saying, "I believe that I participated in making what I now know to be untrue and provably false allegations against you". We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did.
