Bryan Singer Was Not In Hawaii When Sexual Abuse Allegedly Took Place

Bryan Singer, director of the 'X-Men' film franchise, has been sued for allegedly sexually abusing a 17 year-old boy in 1999.

The federal lawsuit, which was filed in Hawaii on Wednesday (April 16th) by Michael Egan, states that the 48 year-old filmmaker sexually abused him in Hawaii from August through October 15 years ago.

But Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer (no relations)told the Associated Press his client was in Toronto, Canada, on the first "X-Men" movie during those months.

And for proof he will supply, credit card receipts, telephone records and production schedules that are from his stay in the Canadian city.

"This was Bryan's first studio film," Marty Singer said. "Clearly, he's not going to take a break in the middle of this movie while you're shooting and prepping it to go to Hawaii."

Egan said that he and several other teens were raped, forced to take drugs (cocaine) and were physically overpowered at wild parties that were part of a Hollywood sex ring.

The now 32 year-old also claims Singer, and other individuals in the movie industry, threatened to kill off his dreams in show business unless he kept them happy.

Singer's defense attorney did not provide any personal records from this time as he deemed them to be private, but he did confirm that the filming records are available publically from 20th Century Fox.

Plaintiff's requests include a jury trial and is also seeking an unknown amount in damages for charges of emotional distress, intentional infliction, battery, assault and invasion of privacy.
