ACCLAIMED director Bryan Singer has denied sexual assault allegations after being sued for allegedly assaulting a 17-year-old boy.
The alleged incident took place in 2003 at a party held on a yacht, according to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
Among the gay males at the party was the plaintiff Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.
The suit, filed Thursday, claims Singer took the then-17-year-old for a tour of the boat before taking him to a room where he ““forced Cesar to the floor, shoved Cesar’s face against his crotch area and demanded Cesar perform oral sex on him.”
According to the suit, it’s alleged Singer took his penis out of his pants, hit Sanchez-Guzman in the face with it and forced it into Sanchez-Guzman’s mouth which caused him to choke.
The suit says the director then forcibly anally penetrated Sanchez-Guzman, despite pleas to stop.
Following the alleged incident, the suit claims Singer approached Sanchez-Guzman and told him his Hollywood influence could assist his career and he could destroy the reputation of the young actor if he told anyone.
The suit was filed by lawyer Jeff Herman.
In response to the claims, a representative for singer told TMZ: “The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michel Egan. Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case.”
Singer is a famed Hollywood director who received his big break for directing the 1995 crime thriller The Usual Suspects — which starred disgraced actor Kevin Spacey.
The claims against Singer come just one month after Spacey was battered by multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against young men.
Byrne, who also starred in the Oscar-winning film, told the UK’s Sunday Times that Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct by a younger actor that prompted the brief shutdown, but he didn’t know the extent of the situation.
