A few days after being fired as director of the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody,” filmmaker Bryan Singer was sued on Thursday in Washington state on charges of raping a minor in 2003, according to media reports specialized.
The victim, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, accused Singer of raping him on a yacht when he was seventeen. According to his testimony, the director forced the young man to have oral sex on him and then penetrated him.
Later, Singer told the young man that he was a well-known Hollywood producer and that he could help him enter the industry with roles as an actor if he did not reveal what happened.
“He told Caesar that no one would believe if he reported the incident and that he would hire people who could ruin his reputation,” the suit filed in a Seattle court.
The yacht was owned by Lester Waters, a billionaire investor in the world of technology “who often organized gay homosexual parties in the Seattle area,” according to the text.
It’s not the first time Singer has been accused of anything like this.
Three years ago he was accused by Michael Egan III of sexual abuse when he was a minor in 1999.
Egan III stated that she was “repeatedly raped” in a Los Angeles (California) mansion where “sordid parties” were routinely performed in which guests, related to the Hollywood industry, were naked and had sex with teenagers.
The 20th Century Fox studio fired Bryan Singer last Monday for the post of director of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a movie about British band Queen.
The decision was made because of the filmmaker’s repeated absences on the set of the film.
Earlier, Fox had announced on the 1st of this month that the recording was temporarily suspended because of an “unexpected problem” of Singer.
A representative of the producer stated that his absence was due to a “personal health issue.”
The director, 52, has signed films such as “The Suspects,” “Superman Returns,” and four of the “X-Men” saga.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2018.
