Bryan Singer sued for allegedly raping 17-year-old



Bryan Singer allegedly raped and forced oral sex on a then-17-year-old in 2003.


Cesar Sanchez-Guzman filed a lawsuit against Singer, claiming that the director sexually assaulted him during a tour of a yacht owned by tech investor Lester Waters.


Sanchez-Guzman claims Singer “pulled out his penis, smacked (him) in the face with it and forced it into (his) mouth,” causing the young man to choke.


Singer then allegedly raped Sanchez-Guzman, who claims the producer later offered to help him professionally in exchange for his silence, according to the lawsuit.

Bryan Singer fired from Freddie Mercury biopic


Sanchez-Guzman claims he has experienced “severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of emjoyment and life.”


He is suing for damages.


Singer denied the allegations in a statement late Thursday.


“Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end,” a rep said.

“Cesar Sanchez-Guzman apparently claims that he did not remember this alleged incident from 2003 until now. Significantly, when Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events.”

Stars accused of sexual harassment and assault


The “X-Men” director has been sued several times for misconduct with underage boys.


In 1997, a 14-year-old “Apt Pupil” claimed Singer forced him and other minors to strip naked for a scene. The case was thrown out.


In April 2014, Michael Egan claimed Singer raped him in 1999, when he was a teenager, and forced him to do cocaine. Egan later withdrew the lawsuit.


In August 2014, another man filed a police report with the NYPD, accusing Singer of sexual assault in March 2013.


The lawsuit comes just days after Singer was fired from directing the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody” after vanishing from set.


He claimed he was taking care of a sick parent.


A rep for Singer did not immediately return a request for comment.
