There is little doubt that the “X-Men” franchise is one of the most successful in all of Hollywood. However, executives for the movie would likely prefer to avoid the current media attention the film is receiving. A Wednesday story by Just Jared revealed that the director of the latest installment of the franchise may be facing legal troubles.
A civil lawsuit filed against Bryan Singer claims that the “X-Men” director sexually abused and sodomized an underage teenage boy in Hawaii. The suit alleges the incident occurred in Hawaii during 1999. While a representative for Bryan Singer has not yet released a statement regarding the allegations, it will likely be addressed in the coming days.
Unfortunately, this is not the only information that is currently circulating about this case. A Wednesday story by TMZ revealed that Singer may have promised the boy a role in the “X-Men” movie franchise. Yet, this same story also revealed the shocking revelation that Bryan Singer is accused of providing the boy with numerous illegal drugs and other substances.
Singer is accused of forcing the boy to perform oral sex on him, and he is also alleged to have performed oral sex on the boy. Also there is another instance where he allegedly forced the boy to perform the act underwater in a pool is also claimed. These are shocking allegations, but it appears that the boy and his family may have evidence to back their case.
Will the shocking accusation that Bryan Singer sexually assaulted and underage boy influence whether or not you go to see “X-Men: Days of Future Past”? Or, since the case is not criminal in nature, are you more inclined to think it may be an attempt to force a settlement from the highly publicized director? Regardless of the truth of the accusation, let’s just hope that things work out for the best for everyone involved.
