X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer is being accused of sexual assault, drugging and raping a 17-year-old boy according to a recent lawsuit filed by attorney Jeff Herman representing Michael Egan.

Jeff Herman is the sexual abuse attorney who represented five alleged abuse victims against Elmo puppeteer, Kevin Clash.

According to the lawsuit, Singer allegedly promised the 17-year-old movie roles and auditions in addition to flying the boy to Hawaii for sex in 1999, forcing the boy at pool parties to conduct sex acts and providing drugs and alcohol.

The Wrap goes into more graphic detail.

The lawsuit alleges that Bryan Singer is part of a Hollywood sex ring that takes advantage of young boys.

Here are some excerpts from the lawsuit (with the graphic detail removed):

Defendant Singer provided an alcoholic beverage to Plaintiff and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing. Defendant Singer told Plaintiff how “this group” controls Hollywood, and that he was sexy.

Defendant Singer flagrantly disregarded Plaintiff's unwillingness to submit, and forced Plaintiff's...

Defendant Singer frightened Plaintiff by pushing him into the pool, and rebuked Plaintiff for his attitude and reminded him that he was there to keep people happy. Defendant Singer put a handful of cocaine against Plaintiff's nose and forced him to inhale it. Defendant Singer then provided Plaintiff with a beverage which he drank which significantly impacted his consciousness and his motor skills.

The lawsuit was filed about a month prior to the release of Bryan Singer's next film X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Update: Singer's lawyer responded as follows:

An attorney for Singer said the lawsuit was “completely without merit.”

“We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit,” said Martin Singer. “It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan’ s new movie is about to open in a few weeks.”
