Bryan Singe, the American film director-producer, has been sued for sexually assaulting a man. However, the 52-year-old accused have denied the alleged rape accusations.
On Thursday, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman has filed a law suit claiming that he was sexually assaulted by the director on a yacht in 2003 in the Seattle area. He said that Singer forced him to perform oral sex on him and then raped him when he was 17, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Sanchez-Guzman claimed that Singer offered to take him on a tour of the yacht. When they arrived at one of the rooms, the director allegedly "forced Cesar to the floor, shoved Cesar's face against his crotch area and demanded Cesar perform oral sex on him" and then raped him. Later, the director allegedly promised Sanchez-Guzman to help him get into acting provided he didn't tell anyone what had happened.
Sanchez-Guzman is asking for compensation for damages related to experiencing "severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life." Meanwhile, a representative for Singer said in a statement that the director "categorically denies these allegations".
Thsi latest suit comes just days after Singer was fired as director of the Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" for failing to show up on the set in London. Singer says that he was taking care of his ailing parent.
However, this is not the first time when Singer has faced such allegations. In 2014, Michael F. Egan claimed that the director sexually molested him in Hawaii and other places in 1999 when he was 17. Egan, however, later withdrew the lawsuit after he lost his lawyer.
