Bryan Singer Speaks Out After Being Fired From Queen Biopic

Bryan Singer has released a statement after being fired from the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, with only three weeks left of shooting.

The 52-year-old director claims that Fox did not allow him to take time off to deal with “pressing health matters” concerning one of his parents.

“Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control,” Bryan said in a statement.

He also fought back against rumors his departure was related to star Rami Malek.

Bryan added, “Rumors that my unexpected departure from the film was sparked by a dispute I had with Rami Malek are not true. While, at times, we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving.”

“With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents.This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control. Rumors that my unexpected departure from the film was sparked by a dispute I had with Rami Malek are not true. While, at times, we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving. I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first.”

    How insensitive! WTF? He needed to be there for his family! Why couldn’t they respect that?

  • c. lince

    this guy is among the worst predators in hollywood.its shocking he gets employed by major studios.he is going to be outed again so he was fired by the studio to save their own ass

  • Shlomo Teittleman

    This alleged predator creep needs to spend some quality time in a federal prison

  • Effy

    If you believe that then you clearly must think Harvey Weinstein is innocent too. Singer is a KNOWN gross, creepy, predator in Hollywood. The studio cut him loose because he’s the next in line for sexual harassment allegations.

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    So is every male director and actor gonna get accused of this stuff now? Just how many more are there and is there legitimate proof? Yes I believe Harvey’s guilty but is every man gonna get accused now? Who’s next?

  • Ram

    we dont speak troll here. go somewhere else.

  • Ram

    he’s trying to blame Fox now – that’s rich. he has VERY rich powerful men that have the same ‘interests’ as him. ped0s protect ped0s because if one falls, they all do.

    he’s hoping the ailing parent story will shore up sympathy. his time has come – he’s eluded justice for too long at the expense of hundreds of young men & boys who were violated, some even killing themselves or OD-ing because they couldn’t handle what happened to them.

  • SquidBillie

    His “pressing health matter” is CARPAL TUNNEL!! Sleezebag liar.

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    I didn’t realize simply wanting to understand where all this is coming from and asking if there is legitimate proof makes me a troll. I simply ask if there’s convincing proof other then the accusers said so.

  • Kat

    He is so much of a sociopath that he is using his parents health sure, he needs to be fired from this earth.

  • Ram

    he got fat

  • Jay Last

    How did you arrive at the conclusion that it’s EVERY actor and director? So far there have been less than, let’s say 100. Do you know how many actors and directors there are? That’s what you consider “every” one of them? Because your brain can’t handle the truth we must not speak of it anymore?

  • Michael Lambretti

    He may have left the country the Feds have been speaking to his teenage victims and building an iron clad case, there are videos, tapes and pictures along with multiple sworn testimony. He may have take his cash and headed to a country with an expedition treaty.

  • Michael Lambretti

    I have a feeling he is on the run to a country without an expedition policy. He knows if he stays he;s going to be locked up and killed in prison. Which he deserves.

  • Michael Lambretti

    Its bs his parents are fine. The law is closing in on this pedophile and the studio did not want to get caught up in this mess so they sacked him. He made this story up. He lies about everything. His activities are well known in WeHo.

  • Warren Clark

    Ever hear of the Family Medical Leave Act???? It is federal law that protects you if you need time off to care for your own illness or a family member. So your story doesn’t hold up.

  • Michael Lambretti

    You clearly dont know ANYTHING. Bryan singer ran the biggest child peodphile ring in hollywood. The law is closing in on him, he may have even fled the country, He is MIA.

  • Michael Lambretti

    There is TONS of testimony online and stories galore, just google it and you will have all the answers you need.

  • Michael Lambretti

    Hes M.I.A might have fled the country.

  • agus

    His case is the most difficult and at the same time the most dangerous, so the magazines based in New York need more time. But I’m sure they are working on it now.

  • Kee FRIEND Leichtle

    Just forget it. I’m done having this argument. People are taking what I said way too far. If there’s one thing I don’t wanna waste my time on its people who got up on the wrong side of the bed. All I wanted was to get a better understanding of where these accusations are coming from but apparently I can’t get that without dealing with irate people who take their anger in others.

  • cafeast

    So they would not provide you w/ the daily pickings of 12 year old boys for your choosing?
    Get real, molester.
    His victims won’t come out b/c saying “I was a boy raped at the age of 11 by this guy” is a hard shameful thing to say for a man. It is not like some 40 year old woman accusing the jew pig, or a 60 year old woman accusing the cosby lowlife w/ rape or assault.

  • Amber

    If they did it, and they’ve been doing it, and people come out against them then yes every male director and actor will be accused of that stuff. The truth deserves to be known!

  • SquidBillie

    You’re an idiot. Everyone has known about Singer for years.
