Michael Egan, the man accusing X-Men director Bryan Singer of sexual abuse, has opened up about the allegations during a press conference on Thursday (April 17) in Los Angeles.
The now 31-year-old claims that he was sexually abused by the director beginning at age 15 and up until he was 17.
“I was raped numerous times in that house, by numerous individuals,” Michael said. “You were like a piece of meat to these people.”
Michael claims that in addition to being raped, he was forced to take cocaine and other substances at so called “sordid parties.”
Bryan‘s lawyer is refuting these claims saying: “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit. It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at the time when Bryan‘s new movie (X-Men: Days of Future Past) is about to open in a few weeks.”

Rosamund Pike wipes her makeup off in this striking new image for her dual W Magazine cover for the May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 21.
The 35-year-old Gone Girl actress was photographed by her director David Fincher for the cover shot, just as he previously had done for the movie’s feature in Entertainment Weekly back in January.
In the issue, Rosamund talks about how she accidentally deleted the text message from David in which he told her she got the part.
“The only evidence I have that I got the call to play Amy is a selfie of me jumping in the rain in the Highlands. I look both happy and thoroughly daunted—the whole ‘You got the best gig in years’ scenario gives me the creeps,” Rosamund said. “But then again, I’m a very hard worker, and maybe people who have underestimated me or just thought I looked good will say they were wrong.”

Channing Tatum jams out to music on his headphones while making his way through LAX Airport on Wednesday (April 16) in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old actor recently opened up about wanting to play his favorite X-Men character Gambit in an upcoming film for the franchise.
“Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved,” Channing said backstage at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards (via THR). “I mean, I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess just being from down South — my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida — I don’t know, I just related to him.”
“I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment,” Channing added. “He’s the most un-X-Men X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men, other than maybe Wolverine, who’s like the antihero. He’s a thief. He’s not even, like, a hero. He’s kind of walking the line of gray. He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff, so he’s just a cool guy who happens to have a good moral center.”
