Bryan Singer to Pay $150,000 to Rape Accuser

Bryan Singer to Pay $150,000 to Rape Accuser

Bryan Singer has agreed to pay $150,000 to Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who accused the director of raping him in 2003 when he was just 17.

Sanchez-Guzman filed the lawsuit in December 2017 and alleged that Singer performed oral sex on him against his will and also anally penetrated him.

Singer denies the allegations and still maintains his innocence. The accuser filed for bankruptcy back in 2014 and the case was discharged, but later reopened to include his claim against the director as an asset. Proceeds from the lawsuit would go to his creditors.

“The debtor filed a claim against Mr. Singer that he had no basis or legal right to file,” Singer‘s attorney Andrew Brettler said in a statement to Variety. “Mr. Singer has denied even knowing this individual, let alone allegedly having interacted with him more than 15 years ago. The decision to resolve the matter with the bankruptcy trustee was purely a business one, as litigation costs would well exceed the amount requested by the trustee to pay off the creditors who were owed money when the debtor filed for bankruptcy.”

$61,000 will go to creditors and additional funds will be used to pay for “administration of the case.” Sanchez-Guzman will received the rest of the funds.

An actor from the Fifty Shades franchise came out earlier this year with his own story about Bryan Singer.

    Singer belongs in JAIL. And this victim was not the only person who accused Singer of sexual assault/misconduct. Ughh

    P.S. If you take a look at Singer’s Instagram, he disturbingly follows tons of young men (some barely 18). What man befriends and takes young boys on private jet?!

    I feel so badly for these young men. I believe there are so many men in Hollywood who have been abused. Some have been on successful sitcoms and have been very popular at one time or another. But as they have aged, you sense something is wrong. Many seem sad. Many have abused alcohol and drugs and they don’t seem to move on normally to any relationships.

    A predator. And who knows? It may have happened to Singer when he was young.
