'Crash' Filmmaker Paul Haggis Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Paul Haggis is speaking out to deny the recent sexual misconduct charges made against him.

Last month, a publicist filed a civil lawsuit against the 64-year-old award-winning filmmaker and an additional three women just came forward with their own allegations, including rape.

Paul is denying these claims, claiming they are trying to harm him and obtain money.

“No one has reached out to anyone on Mr. Haggis’ team other than the press to report this. He views the fact that these reports appear to be spearheaded from the law-firm representing Ms. Breest, as a further tactic to try to harm him and continue their effort to obtain money. Mr. Haggis also questions whether Scientology has any role here, which he notes has been attacking him for years with false accusations,” Paul said in a statement through his lawyer.

Mr. Haggis denies these anonymous claims in whole.

In a society where one of a person’s fundamental rights is the ability to confront an accuser, that right has now been eviscerated when it comes to anyone being charged in the press with any sort of sexual misconduct.

Notably, no one has reached out to anyone on Mr. Haggis’ team other than the press to report this.

He views the fact that these reports appear to be spearheaded from the law-firm representing Ms. Breest, as a further tactic to try to harm him and continue their effort to obtain money.

Mr. Haggis also questions whether Scientology has any role here, which he notes has been attacking him for years with false accusations.

We reiterate our claim against Ms. Breest, and note again that we initiated the legal proceedings, not Ms. Breest.

    Always with the denial, always playing the “they want money” card.

    Not these days. Accuse a man and he’s automatically guilty. It’s wrong.
