The man who accused director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him when he was a teen has made similar claims against more Hollywood executives, The Associated Press reports.
Michael F. Egan, now 31, filed additional lawsuits this week against Garth Ancier, a former television executive with Fox and BBC Worldwide America; Gary Wayne Goddard, a designer and theater producer; and David Neuman, a former television exec with Disney and Current TV.
X-Men director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing teen boy
Egan claims that he was involved in a sex ring from ages 15 to 17, through which he was forced to have sex with male Hollywood executives in Los Angeles and Hawaii, including Singer on more than one occasion.
Goddard's lawyer responded by saying the allegations are "without merit." Neuman addressed Egan's claims in several posts on Twitter. "Hey everyone: obviously I have to be talking to and through lawyers, but I just want everyone to know right now that the disgusting allegations made against me are COMPLETELY FALSE. Also very shocking in that they don't just stretch the truth, they are whole-cloth lies with zero basis in reality or truth. Sickening, and very evil, for anyone to lie like that, let alone in a legal document. Stay tuned; I will set the record straight."
Ancier has not responded publicly to the lawsuit.
Singer's attorney, Marty Singer, has also denied the allegations and says that he has proof that the director was in Toronto working on the first X-Men film and not Hawaii during the time Egan claims he was abused.
