The director of “X-Men” and “The Usual Suspects”, Bryan Singer, has been accused of raping a 17-year-old boy in 2003 and is now being sued. His accuser is Cesar Sanchez-Guzman who told a very detailed recollection of the story, which Singer denied.
A representative for Singer commented that he “categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end.”
The lawsuit stated that the two met each other at a yacht party that consisted of a majority of “young gay males in the Seattle area”.
It also claimed that Singer suggested a tour of the boat to Cesar, eventually ending up in a room together. There, Singer “forced Cesar to the floor, shoved Cesar’s face against his crotch area and demanded Cesar perform oral sex on him.”
The documents added that Cesar “pleaded with him to stop” throughout the incident, while Singer forced himself on Cesar.
Later on, Singer apparently told him 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.” It continued on by saying, “He then told Cesar that no one would believe him if he ever reported the incident, and that he could hire people who are capable of ruining someone’s reputation.”
Cesar stated the trauma caused him “to experience severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life.”
This isn’t the first time that he’s been accused of sexual assault. In 2014 he had two accusers file a sexual abuse lawsuit against him. In both accounts, Singer was accused of trying to force others into having sex with him. One of them being Michael Egan who said Singer sexually abused him in the late 1990’s.
Concurrently, Bryan Singer was fired as director of a movie called Bohemian Rhapsody about the band Queen.
