Hollywood Execs Named in Bryan Singer's Accuser's Sexual Abuse Case Deny Allegations

Hollywood executives David Neuman, Garth Ancier, and Gary Goddard have all responded to Bryan Singer‘s accuser Michael Egan in his case citing sexual abuse allegations.

“All of the allegations made by the plaintiffs against Garth Ancier are demonstrably untrue and we are confident the courts will agree when the evidence is presented,” Garth‘s lawyer said (via Variety). “As just one of many examples, Mr. Ancier has never even visited the estate in Hawaii where the plaintiff claims to have encountered him. Mr. Ancier is grateful to his friends, family and colleagues for their support.”

“Based on what we have heard, the allegations are without merit,” Gary‘s attorney added in his own statement. “Gary Goddard is out of the country, in China, until later this week. We have now received the complaint and will respond as appropriate.”

David said in a statement, “The disgusting allegations made against me are completely false.”

Bryan Singer Planning to Countersue Accuser Michael Egan

Bryan Singer‘s attorney has announced that he plans on filing a countersuit against Michael Egan, the man accusing him of sexual abuse fifteen years ago.

The 48-year-old director’s lawyer said they plan to bring “a claim for malicious prosecution against Mr. Egan and his attorney after we prevail,” according to Variety.

“The claims made today about Bryan Singer are completely fabricated,” Marty Singer said. “It is obvious that plaintiff’s attorney is not looking to litigate the case on the merits. This matter is nothing more than the attorney seeking to get his 15 minutes of fame by sending out a press release with his ‘media consultant’ yesterday following up with a press conference today. Attorneys who try cases don’t hold press conferences.”

Michael opened up about the accusations that he made earlier today at a press conference.

Bryan Singer's Accuser Opens Up at Press Conference: 'I Was Raped Numerous Times' (Video)

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.”
