Bryan Singer Allegations | Controversy
In 1997, a 14-year-old extra accused Singer of forcing him and other minors to film a naked shower scene for the film Apt Pupil. Singer was accused of sexual assault on a minor in a civil lawsuit in April 2014. According to some sources, the civil case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence, while others claim it was settled out of court. Michael Egan sued Bryan Singer and producer Gary Goddard in August 2014 on behalf of an anonymous British man who accused them of sexually assaulting him when he was a minor. The charge against Singer in this case was dropped in July 2014, at the request of the accuser.
After Egan withdrew his lawsuit during production, details of Egan’s allegations were omitted from the film An Open Secret. In January 2019, four more men claimed Singer sexually abused them when they were minors. Due to the allegations against Singer, GLAAD withdrew Bohemian Rhapsody’s nomination for Best British Film from consideration.
