Just weeks before the scheduled May 23 opening of writer-director Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Singer has been accused in a federal lawsuit of sexually abusing a 17-year-old boy in Los Angeles and Hawaii in 1999. Michael F. Egan III, now 31, further claims in the suit that Singer forced him to inhale cocaine and drink liquor on at least two week-long trips to Hawaii at a time when he was employed by a company headed by Marc Collins-Rector, a registered sex offender, at a salary of $1,500 per week to attend parties at “attractive locations.” (Collins-Rector has pled guilty to charges of transporting minors across state lines for sex.) Egan further claims that Singer and others told him that they “controlled Hollywood and would destroy his hopes and dreams of an acting career if he did not keep them happy,” according to the lawsuit. In a statement, Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, said, “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”
