Bryan Singer Sued For Allegedly Raping 17-Year-Old — He Denies Claim

The suit was filed in Washington's King County by a man named Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who alleges that Singer attacked him on a yacht when he was a minor.

In the lawsuit, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman alleges that Singer offered to give him a tour of the yacht during a boat party near Seattle in 2003.

Guzman claims that Singer forced him to perform oral sex on him and that the director then forcibly performed it on Guzman.

After the alleged assault, Sanchez-Guzman states in the lawsuit that Singer threatened to ruin his reputation if he came forward.

It then accuses Singer of "forcibly" raping him.

In 1997, a 14-year-old "Apt Pupil" claimed Singer forced him and other minors to strip naked for a scene.


He is also just the latest powerful Hollywood figure to face allegations of sexual assault and harassment, including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and film producer Brett Ratner.

The lawsuit was filed the same week that Singer was sacked from the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Through a representative, Singer denied the allegations. Guzman says he again pleaded with Singer to stop, to no avail.

Guzman is being represented by Jeff Herman, and Singer's spokesman, in his denial, brought up Herman's role in a similar sexual assault case filed against Singer in 2014 by Michael Egan. "These damages include, but are not limited to, emotional distress, mental anguish, physical and mental pain and suffering, a decrease in his ability to enjoy life, past and future medical expenses, attorneys' fees and costs, and other general and special damages, all in an amount to be determined at trial" (read it here).

As previously reported, Singer was recently fired from the Queen biopic project, Bohemian Rhapsody, after failing to show up on the set after American Thanksgiving.

In 2015, Egan was sentenced to two years in federal prison in an unrelated fraud case.
