“X-Men” Director Bryan Singer Hit With Another Sex Abuse Lawsuit
Things are looking grim for Bryan Singer as he’s just been targeted by another alleged victim of his sexual abuse.
According to a Los Angeles Federal Court document, an anonymous British man claims that both Singer and entertainment honcho Gary Goddard solicited him via social media when he was as young as 14 years old.
From there, Bryan and Gary engaged him in nude webcam ‘sessions’ when he was 15, leading to actual sex when he was 16. And at 17 years of age the accuser says Singer invited him to an after party for “Superman Returns” in the UK and had a “large, muscle-bound man” threaten him into more sex.
The anonymous Brit is represented by Jeff Herman, the same attorney who brought Michael Egan’s lawsuit to court. And Singer’s law man Marty Singer is singing the same song.
He told press, "After the substance of Mr. Herman's previous defamatory and fabricated filing in Hawaii was disproved based on unassailable evidence, Mr. Herman's desperation has led him to fabricate these new anonymous accusations against Mr. Singer, which we will also prove to be completely false."
"It is time for the media and public to focus their attention on Mr. Herman's nefarious motives and tactics which seem to be driven solely by his need to shake down an innocent man like Bryan Singer. We intend to seek sanctions against Mr. Herman for his reckless, unethical behavior."
Along the same lines, Goddard’s lawyers Alan Grodin and Paul Gaspari are indignant about the claims against their client. “It is a sad indictment on society that when once spurious claims making false, serious and highly damaging allegations have been made – especially where compensation is sought – that other similar claims may follow. The allegations made against Mr. Goddard are vehemently denied and will be vigorously defended at any trial of these matters and Mr. Goddard is entirely confident that he will be fully vindicated."
