Bryan Singer Files Motion to Dismiss His Sexual Abuse Case

X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has filed a motion to dismiss the sexual abuse case against him at the federal court in Hawaii early Wednesday (May 21).

The 48-year-old director was accused by Michael Egan of sexual abuse between August, 1999 and October, 1999, Variety reports.

“The timing of this action and inclusion of its sordid (and provably false) allegations are nothing more than tools being used to embarrass, harass, and pressure Singer and precipitate a shakedown of a perceived ‘deep pocket,’” the motion said.

Bryan claims he was not even in Hawaii during the timeline, and says that the suit was filed “to maximize public attention” prior to X-Men‘s release.
