Bryan Singer Hits Back at 'Esquire' Article: It's a 'Reckless Disregard for the Truth'

Bryan Singer is preemptively calling out an upcoming Esquire article that will “rehash false accusations and bogus lawsuits” against him.

“I have known for some time that Esquire magazine may publish a negative article about me. They have contacted my friends, colleagues and people I don’t even know. In today’s’ climate where people’s careers are being harmed by mere accusations, what Esquire is attempting to do is a reckless disregard for the truth, making assumptions that are fictional and irresponsible,” the 53-year-old Bohemian Rhapsody director wrote in a statement released on Instagram.

“This article will attempt to rehash false accusations and bogus lawsuits. This article will misuse quotes from ‘sources’ that will claim to have ‘intimate’ knowledge of my personal life. It will also attempt to establish guilt by association simply because of people I’ve either known or met in the past. They will be attempting to tarnish a career I’ve spent 25 years to build,” he added.

The article has not yet been released and it’s unclear what might be written at this time. This is not the first time allegations have been brought against the director.
