Bryan Singer Sued for Allegedly Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Boy

Bryan Singer Sued for Allegedly Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Boy

According to the filing, Sanchez-Guzman has suffered greatly since the alleged assault and is seeking an unknown amount of money as a settlement. The gathering was hosted by technology investor Leslie Waters "who frequently hosted parties for young gay males in the Seattle area", the suit notes. During this tour, Bryan Singer lured Cesar into a room, shut the door and demanded that Cesar perform oral sex.

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

Singer had been fired from a film this week after being absent from production, spurring some rumors that he was the next to be hit by sexual harassment claims. The allegations did not hold up in court, and the charges were ultimately dismissed.

Cesar claims Singer told him he was a Hollywood producer who could "help" start his acting career as "long as Cesar never said anything about the incident".

Representatives for Singer did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment.

Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain. After being raped, Sanchez-Guzman claims that Singer threatened to ruin his reputation if he told anyone.

As TMZ reports, Singer has denied all of the claims against him. "Cesar refused and then Bryan Singer forced him into acts of oral and anal sex".

Singer was recently fired from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody, in which Rami Malek is playing the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, after the director failed to return to London, where the movie is filming.

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. Egan later withdrew his claim, pleaded guilty to fraud, and was sentenced to two years in prison.
