Director Bryan Singer has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old male in 2003, a new lawsuit said on Thursday.
Cesar Sanchez-Guzman said Singer forced oral sex and anal penetration on him while touring a yacht in Seattle, Wa. owned by a tech invested named Laster Waters, in 2003. Singer denies the charge.
“The sexual abuse has caused Cesar to experience severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life.” the filing said.
Singer denied the accusations to TMZ, who first reported the news.
“The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan. Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case,” an attorney for Singer told TMZ.
In April 2014, Egan alleged in the lawsuit filed in Hawaii that he was raped by Singer and that the director also made him take cocaine, and provided him with drugs and alcohol. Egan later withdrew his lawsuit.
Singer was recently fired from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody, starring actor Rami Malek as the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, after Singer failed to return to the movie’s London set.
Singer claimed he was taking care of a sick parent.
