Director Bryan Singer accused of sexual assault with minors

Director Bryan Singer accused of sexual assault with minors

On Wednesday, The Atlantic published a bombshell report alleging that "X-Men" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" director Bryan Singer had sexually abused teenage boys for almost two decades. I really want to work with you ... That didn't stop this writer from selling it to The Atlantic.

"Eric" alleges that he was just one of many boys brought to the attention of Singer and his circle at the time. Singer vehemently denied the allegations.

"I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is", the actor said, before suggesting that "perhaps that was Freddie himself" pushing the cast and crew to persevere through the adversity that came when, according to reports, Singer stopped showing up to the set and was sacked with weeks of filming to go.

The years of allegations against Singer have cast a shadow over "Bohemian Rhapsody", which - despite polarizing reviews - has become a major box-office hit and awards contender.

The new article comes a day after Bohemian Rhapsody received five Oscar nominations, including best picture.

Andy claims that the late Brad Renfro - who starred in 1998's Apt Pupil and died of an overdose in 2008 at the age of 25 - was in the room with him and Singer, but didn't join in.

In response to the article, Singer said to PEOPLE in a statement: "It's sad that The Atlantic would stoop to this low standard of journalistic integrity".

As of now, Singer is slated to direct a big-screen adaptation of Red Sonja. "He was always touching my chest", Valdovinos explains, alleging that Singer proceeded to reach through his towel and "grabbed my genitals and started masturbating it" while rubbing "his front part on me". Singer is now being sued by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who claims the filmmaker sexually assaulted him in 2003 - when he was 17 years old. "Their accounts suggest that Singer didn't act alone; he was aided by friends and associates who brought him young men".

The other accuser said that he had oral sex with Singer when he was 17 or 18.

Singer did direct the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, but was sacked from the film in December 2017 for generally reckless behavior on set.

The Atlantic article also includes an interview with Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who claimed in a lawsuit publicized in 2017 that Singer anally raped him in 2003, when he was 17. Brettler also said Singer denies having "sex with, or a preference, for underage men".

In a statement released through his representative, Singer called the article a "homophobic smear piece" aimed at hampering Bohemian Rhapsody's awards season success. Some of the supposed victims claim they were merely underage when they slept together, while others said they were outright raped by the filmmaker.

"The industry will brush things under the rug and pretend nothing happened", Sanchez-Guzman told the magazine.

The article also details how Singer has continually avoided legal action, as lawsuits bought against DEN members didn't mention him or later allegations in 2014 fell apart due to the accuser, Michael Egan, being painted as a conman due to his own ponzi scheme.
