'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Accused Of Raping 17-Year-Old Boy

Director Bryan Singer, who has directed X-Men films and was sacked this week from his Queen biopic, has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy.

Singer then allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on Sanchez-Guzman, and then raped him, according to the lawsuit filed by attorney Jeff Herman.

The civil suit, obtained by USA TODAY, claims Singer offered to take Sanchez-Guzman on a tour of the yacht. The incident occurred in Seattle on the yacht of a wealthy tech investor who hosted parties for young gay men in the area.

It's said that when they entered one of the rooms, Singer allegedly thrusted his body onto Guzman, forced him to the floor, and shoved the then-minor's face against his crotch, demanding oral sex. Singer allegedly also warned Sanchez-Guzman that if he came forward with his story, he would not be believed, and that Singer had the resources to ruin him.

Singer denied the accusations to TMZ, who first reported the news.

The stock has a market cap of $53,567.18, a price-to-earnings ratio of 200.00, a P/E/G ratio of 14.20 and a beta of 0.65. The analysts, on average, are forecasting a $67.65 price target, but the stock is already up 21.1% from its recent lows.

In one of Singer's earlier films, Apt Pupil, a 14-year-old extra named Devin St.Albin had filed a lawsuit claiming that the filmmaker had ordered him and other minors to strip for a scene that was shot in the showers.

The lawsuit comes just days after Singer was sacked from directing the Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" after vanishing from set.

A representative for Singer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA TODAY.

Reports had surfaced that Singer, 52, had been absent from the set in recent weeks, forcing production to shut down last Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Actor Rami Malek, who stars as Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury in the film, complained to Twentieth Century Fox about Singer on behalf of the cast.

"The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan". Egan later withdrew his claim, pleaded guilty to fraud, and was sentenced to two years in prison.
