Bryan Singer....accused of sexual abuse
   Interesting to see that once again Bryan Singer is at the centre of sexual abuse allegations made by someone who alleges the A-List director sexually abused him and other young men.
  Michael Egan, in a lawsuit filed late last week, alleges Singer provided him with drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii in 1999 for sex on more than one occasion.  Singer is alleged to have offered the aspiring teen actor a role in an "X-Men" film if he gave in to his sexual demands, while threatening to destroy his career if he didn't.
   "I was a piece of meat," Egan, now 31, told reporters.
   It is not the first time allegations of sexual abuse involving Singer have surfaced.  I remember back in 1998 when he was an up-and-coming director filming Apt Pupil five teenage extras filed lawsuits claiming that they'd been subjected to sexual harassment, invasion of privacy, false imprisonment and other outrages by Singer and his film crew.
   The boys claimed that although they'd been promised that their roles wouldn't involve nudity, once they entered the set for a shower scene they were commanded to strip and forced to stand naked for more than four hours as the cameras rolled. 
   They claimed they were subjected to "ogling, leering and subjective glances."
   The lawsuits, which named Singer and at least seven others as defendants along with Phoenix Pictures, were eventually ruled to have no merit and no criminal charges were filed. 
   Egan's suit claims Singer "manipulated his power, wealth and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats and inducements which resulted in plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries."      
  The lawsuit says that most of the alleged sex abuse took place at parties hosted at an Encino, California, mansion, by a man who Egan and two other young men successfully sued in 2004 for sex abuse. The men won a $4 million judgment against him, but Singer was not a defendant in that case.
  "The parties were typically sordid and featured sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys who were present for the parties," the current suit says. The teens were seduced by the "distraction of alcohol and drugs," it says.
  "The nature of the parties was well-known and notorious among many men in the Hollywood entertainment industry," the complaint says.
  Singer allegedly gave Egan "drugs, including cocaine, a pill identified as 'green triangle' which is believed to be a reference to the drug Ecstasy, Xanax, Rohypnol, pain pills believed to be Vicodin or Percocet, and alcoholic beverages," the suit says.
  Singer is one of Hollywood's most successful directors and producers, having directed two installments of the "X-Men" film franchise and a Superman movie in the past 15 years. His next film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past," is set to hit theaters on May 23.
  Fox, the studio distributing the X-Men movies, is distancing itself from the lawsuit and issued a statement saying: ""These are serious allegations, and they will be resolved in the appropriate forum. This is a personal matter, which Bryan Singer and his representatives are addressing separately."
