    @Lara: Please….You seem naive about what goes on in Hollywood. There are alot of despicable people there who have done the same thing and worse. They probably got a fixer to threaten this guy within an inch of his life to get him to cave.

    @Yeah right: So, absolutely everyone is Hollywood is evil, and everyone not in Hollywood isn’t? I see how your mind works.

    It was painfully obvious that the charges were bogus and I knew it was a matter of time before the accuser would drop the suit. Now he’s in for a world of trouble when Singer’s lawyers get done with him.

    This was such a blatant money grab trying to derail the X-Men Days Of Future Past press tour

    How this guy ever got a hold of the Superman franchise only to make a boring movie I’ll never know! Those behind the scenes spots on the DVD with him fawning all over Brandon Routh kind of make me sick to my stomach.

    not guilty, Egan should go to jail

    LOL Says:

    If he got paid, his lawyers would make a point of letting people know..They reached a settlement. Otherwise he looks like what he is …someone desperate to extort money and blaming the actions of his past on another.

    Seriously if he felt so degraded and used and abuse why would he take hush hush money? He would get more pleasure out of humiliating Singer in court.

    Did the Hollywood gay mafia around Singer threaten to break Egan’s leg?

    Lena Says:

    @LOL: Do you remember how much they asked for in the original suit? 300k I think. Not much….And Herman said he feels he wins for his clients just by giving them a chance to confront their abusers? I thought it was odd when suddenly he withdrew and there was a published document showing Singer had offered some cash . And that was before the first hearing?…LOL… :) Oh well…

    Me thinks he was paid to go away. Fox certainly doesn’t want this scandal to interfere with X-Men: Apocalypse.
