As these things are wont to do, one sexual abuse lawsuit often begets another, and in this case, the lawsuit brought last month against Bryan Singer by Michael Egan has prompted another man, who is choosing to remain anonymous in his filing, to bring charges of “gender violence” against the X-Men: Days of Future Past director. According to the complaint, singer and producer Gary Goddard met the plaintiff — when he was 14 — through pornographic webcam sessions, which led them to meeting and Goddard having sex with him. It wasn’t until he was 17 that Singer got involved, allegedly abusing him after the Superman Returns premiere
According to court filings, the event turned sexual after Singer offered the teen a Quaalude and brought a “large, musclebound man” into the hotel room after the boy asked Goddard and Singer to stop. The complaint alleges Singer asked the teenager to sit on top of him and masturbate, and even attempted to anally penetrate the accuser. The next morning, Singer allegedly contacted John Doe to apologize.
The plaintiff is claiming mental and psychological anguish, which he says only became apparent to him recently.
Singer, through his attorney, denies the allegations, and they are attempting to discredit the plaintiff’s attorney, Jeff Herman, who is the same man behind Egan’s lawsuit, as well as the lawsuits against Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo. In fact, over the last few weeks, Herman has expanded his lawsuits to include a few less high-profile names in Hollywood in an attempt to sort of isolate a sex ring. Their only defense, so far, has been to deny, deny, deny, and then try and discredit the attorney, although so far all they’ve come up with was a conflicts violation that was unrelated to any of his sexual abuse lawsuits.
