Director, Bryan Singer, who recently directed the acclaimed film, Bohemian Rhapsody and is known for his previous works, X-MenX2, and The Usual Suspects, has been accused of sexually assaulting minors.

According to a report published in The Atlantic, Bryan Singer was accused by four men of sexually harassing them when they were underage, between 1997 and 1999.

As per the report in The Atlantic, Singer had a pattern of allegedly abusing and wrecking the lives of the underage victims he harassed in his social circles during the 90s where drinking and parties were a routine.

Andrew Brettler, representing Bryan Singer as his legal counsel, denied the allegations against his client. Brettler also stated to French and Potter that Singer had never been arrested or convicted of any crime and that he categorically denies ever having sex with, or a preference for, underage men.

According to Brettler, Singer stated, the story of assualt is “homophobic smear piece [that] has been conveniently timed to take advantage of [Bohemian Rhapsody’s] success” and that it was written by “a homophobic journalist who has a bizarre obsession with me dating back to 1997.”

However, these aren’t the first ever allegations to have surfaced about Bryan Singer. Singer was accused of sexually assaulting two underage men in 2014, who even filed a lawsuit against him. The suit was later dismissed.

In 2017, Cesar Sanchez Guzman, a 31 year old man from Washington, also filed a lawsuit stating singer had raped him when he was 17.

Also last year in October, Singer, himself, had posted a message on Instagram warning people that a negative article in Esquire had been written about him and that it was a publicity stunt trying to mar the release of Bohemian Rhapsody.
