This isn't the first time Singer has been accused of sexual abuse.

Bryan Singer, director of the X-Men series and The Usual Suspects, has been sued for allegedly sexually assaulting 17-year-old boy back in 2003.

Cesar Sanchez-Guzman accused Singer, 52, of forcing him to perform oral sex and then raping him on a yacht more than a decade ago, but Singer denies the claims.

The lawsuit claims Singer gave Guzman, who was 17 at the time, a tour of Lester Water’s yacht in Seattle. The suit claims a party was being held on the yacht and most attendees were young gay men.

After being shown around on the yacht, Guzman claims Singer forced him into performing sexual acts.

“During this tour, Singer lured Cesar into a room, shut the door and demanded that Cesar perform oral sex,” the lawsuit reads.

Singer allegedly slapped Guzman with his genitals before forcing him to perform oral sex. The rape was so severe that according to the lawsuit, Guzman started choking. 

He said he begged Singer to stop but he didn't.

Singer allegedly then forcibly anally penetrated the 17-year-old, despite his pleas to stop.

According to the lawsuit, Singer later told Guzman that he was a famous movie producer and could help him become an actor if he kept his mouth shut about the incident. Singer then allegedly went on to say that no one would believe Guzman’s story and that he could easily ruin the boy’s reputation.

The suit says Guzman suffered “severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life” as a result of the alleged sexual abuse.

Singer denies the allegations against him and his lawyer spoke to TMZ.


"Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end,” said his lawyer, Andrew Brettler. “…When Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events."

Guzman’s attorney, Jeff Herman, has been sued before by defendants for malicious prosecution.

"The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014,” continued Brettler. “In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that case once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart."

Michael Egan accused Singer, along with three other men, of drugging him and forcing him into sex at parties when he was just 15. The claims came out 15 years after they allegedly happened and ended with Egan going to federal prison for lying in a fraud case.

Singer has been accused of sexual abuse multiple times but the claims have never proven.

In 1997, a 14-year-old extra on his film Apt Pupil named Devin St. Albin accused the acclaimed director of asking him, along with other underage extras, to strip for a shower scene. St. Albin filed a lawsuit against Singer for infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and invasion of privacy, but it was dismissed for insufficient evidence.

Another case was dropped in 2014 by “John Doe No. 117.” The British accuser who remained anonymous claimed Singer and producer Gary Goddard of engaging in acts of “gender violence” against him when they met the minor to have sex.

Singer’s lawyer is certain these recent claims by Guzman will be proven false, just like the Egan case.

“We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did,” Brettler said in a statement.  “And once Bryan prevails, he will pursue his own claims for malicious prosecution.”
