Blake recalled meeting the director in 2009 when he was 18 and Bryan was 43, alleging that they entered into a sexual relationship shortly after.

He also described “living in fear” of Bryan after he watched him allegedly attack a man at a house party in 2012 and said that he felt “controlled” by Bryan in his private life as well as his career.

Blake added that their relationship ended after he was fired as an assistant on X-Men: Days of Future Past in 2013.

“Up until a few years ago, I still defended Bryan in private. If someone brought up the rumors of his alleged behavior, I would deny them. It wasn’t until I began receiving treatment specifically for abuse and PTSD that I accepted what had actually happened,” he wrote. “I am a victim of abuse by a very powerful, very wealthy and very sick man. I am a victim of Bryan Singer.”

Variety corroborated parts of Blake‘s story through photos, emails, documents and tests that he provided, as well as interviews with 20 people.

Bryan‘s attorney Andrew Brettler issued a statement denying Blake‘s accusations: “The types of allegations that Mr. Steurman [sic] now is leveling against Mr. Singer are nothing more than self-serving and conclusory statements with absolutely no evidentiary support… Mr. Stuerman is angry and upset that he allegedly did not receive the ‘credit’ that he thought he deserved on Mr. Singer’s films….And, most of all, he is angry and upset that Mr. Singer is no longer funding Mr. Stuerman’s jet setting lifestyle and supporting Mr. Stuerman financially, as he had done for so many years.”

Bryan has faced a number of accusations of misconduct. In 2019, four separate individuals alleged that he had raped them while underage in a piece from The Atlantic.

In 2017, he was sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy. Bryan denied the accusations.
