Bryan Singer's Accuser Opens Up at Press Conference: 'I Was Raped Numerous Times' (Video)

Bryan Singer's Accuser Opens Up at Press Conference: 'I Was Raped Numerous Times' (Video)

Michael Egan, the man accusing X-Men director Bryan Singer of sexual abuse, has opened up about the allegations during a press conference on Thursday (April 17) in Los Angeles.

The now 31-year-old claims that he was sexually abused by the director beginning at age 15 and up until he was 17.

“I was raped numerous times in that house, by numerous individuals,” Michael said. “You were like a piece of meat to these people.”

Michael claims that in addition to being raped, he was forced to take cocaine and other substances at so called “sordid parties.”

Bryan‘s lawyer is refuting these claims saying: “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan‘s new movie (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is about to open in a few weeks.”

Just another guy looking to make a buck. Who comes forward 15 years later? Hes got no case

# 7

@*RollsEyes*:

Huh? Why do you think this? Your comment is shameful. They went to the police and the FBI; there is proof of this. It’s kinda of an open secret about Singer in Hollywood.

God help you if you ever have a child who is sexually molested, pal.

Unless, of course, you are Bryan Singer.

@yeah right !:

Huh? Do you have ANY idea what a victim goes through in a sex abuse suit? Dozens of depositions, being raked over the coals. If the judge finds no merit, it doesn’t go forward. And if Singer is innocent, then he doesn’t pay up.

You seem to have ignored the fact that they went to the FBI and the police 14 years ago, and that Singer’s good friend Rector Collins is a registered sex offender who just recently, mysteriously fled the country.

@LaCroix:

guilty until proven innocent right?

@Ryan:

What in God’s name are you talking about? You know absolutely NOTHING about these cases. Try reading “Our Fathers” by David France about the sex abuse cases in Massachusetts. Victims came forward only 20 or 30 years after they were abused. Victims almost never come forward at all, and those that do don’t do so until decades after, when they feel they can handle talking about it.

Former Massachusetts senator Scott Brown was molested at age 11 and he didn’t come forward until his 50s.

I know a man who was molested at age 10 by a child psychiatrist, and he didn’t tell anyone until he was 75, just before he died.

I was molested at age 7 and didn’t come forward until age 33.

I am sickened by the fact that commenters like you continue to make ignorant comments about abuse victims when there is so much literature about them at your disposal and yet you don’t educate yourself. Shame on you and your comment

yeah right ! @ 04/17/2014 at 6:43 pm

@Drats:
yeah …just because i don’t buy this bullshit ….don’t you even wonder why now ? a month away from a major movie ? and just settling for money ? it’s way to suspicious !!!!!come on ???

@eternalozzie:

There’s that little fact that Singer was hanging around with his good pal, REctor- Collins, a registered sex offender, who oddly has just fled the country. Watch for more victims to come forward.

There are rumblings that more shocking information about Singer is going to come out.

@yeah right !:

Did you bother to read anything about this case? They first went to the police and nothing happened. The statute of limitations is over.

Victims of priests routinely hold press conferences before a priest gets promoted to bishop.

When a criminal statute of limitations is over, victims have no recourse but to go to file a civil suit. Do you have any idea what victims go through?

Many commit suicide and more become alcoholics.

Corey Feldman and Corey Haim were both sexually assaulted as kids by a Hollywood powerhouse and they didn’t come forward until their late thirties.

You might want to use spell check next time you post. I know a lot more about sexual abuse victims than you do, pal.

Thank you @ 04/17/2014 at 6:49 pm

BRAVO! EXPOSE THOSE SICK HOLLYWOOD SCUMS! what’s wrong with you people saying he wants a buck?? Do you really think he has anything to lose? This director is powerful and who is this guy? Nobody. I wish more would be this brave! Thandi Newton once did an interview saying how she was taken advantage of by a big time director at the age of 16. Things like this DO GO ON and I’m happy this guy actually NAMED the director!

I have no words… That is beyond f*cked up. Everyone should keep their children away from Hollywood creeps. Woody Allen, James Franco and now Bryan Singer… always just in time for movies about to get released. This pig should be in jail along with Joel Schumacher, Roman Polanski, Dan Schneider and other scums like them who use their power to abuse kids!

I call B.S. if this man had really gone through the ordeal that he has described, then the last thing you’d be asking for is money in a lawsuit. You’d be asking that Singer be put in prison for his crime. No amount of money would compensate for the years of alleged abuse. This dude is obviously trying to milk Singer (no pun intended) for every penny.

Thank you @ 04/17/2014 at 7:01 pm

@yeah right !:
How moronic are you honestly? Have you bothered to read anything on the case apart from showing the world how idiotic you sound? When will it ever be a right time? It’s smarter to drop a bomb like this right at the start of a release. I’m GLAD it was right before the release of xmen that way more people won’t want to see a monsters film. I hope it bombs.

Seriously @ 04/17/2014 at 7:04 pm

@Vendetta Chronicles:
Really?? Let’s be honest we all know the freak won’t get jail time. I’d ask for money too for all my struggles at the hands of a monster. I’d get every penny I could. People like you sound so absurd..

Well, that explains Brandon Routh’s career.

The problem for me is the timing and, now, the fact that he said he was raped numerous times. If he was raped the first time, why did he go to the same place a second time? Why did he allow this to happen for 2 years? It’s not like Singer is a family friend or something. In my opinion, this guy is after money and nothing more. Taking advantage that he had sex with Singer while he was underage, and want to cash in the situation. I don’t care if Singer likes young boys or not, or that he has sordid parties at his house, this gyu wants publicity and money, and that is why he waited 15 years to do this publically, since in 99 Singer wasn’t that rich or famous.

@Roberta: You sound completely & utterly ridiculous. Are you sure you aren’t part of Singer’s PR team? Obviously you know nothing of abuse & how it works.

@Ryan: Actually I read that the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse civil cases, which allowed a 2 year window for him to file this claim, ends on April 24, 2014 so that might have something to do with it. I don’t know if Singer is guilty or not but I thought this info was worth noting. http://satchawaii.com/get-info-about-statutes-of-limitations.aspx

Corey Feldman talked about this in his book but it was conveniently swept under the rug. Now he needs to get off his ass and name those people.

People calling to boycott XMen just plain suck. You really aren’t just punishing Singer by not going to see the film. You are also punishing the people who worked hard and are proud of the film people like the actors and the crew who have nothing to do with this case.
Honestly the best thing to do would just have a outcry to have him not direct the next film. Leave what looks like an awesome film alone, go and enjoy it even. Just leave this baggage at the door.

@sam: He can’t he would be sued by all of those people & according to him they are extremely powerful. THe only way he could name names is if he is subpoenaed in court.
