Bryan Singer Was Not In Hawaii During Sexual Assault Claim, Says Lawyer

A defense attorney for Bryan Singer said on Friday that credit card receipts, telephone records and production schedules show the ‘X-Men’ franchise director was not in Hawaii when a lawsuit claims he sexually abused a 17-year-old on the island.

The AP reports:

Bryan singerSinger was mainly in Toronto working on the first "X-Men" movie from August through October 1999, defense attorney Marty Singer told The Associated Press.

A lawsuit filed by a former child model, Michael Egan III, says Bryan Singer abused him several times over those three months as well as earlier in California as part of a Hollywood sex ring led by another man convicted of luring minors across state lines for sex.

"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’s lawyer has yet to comment on the development.

  6. Singer's whereabouts on specific dates is not the question that will have to be answered in the Court of Public Opinion. The (answers to the) questions on which he'll be judged are:

    Did you ever have sex with Egan when he was under the age of 18?

    How many times?

    Did Egan ever resist or show reluctance to your requests for sex?

    Did you ever promise Egan a part in a film or career assistance in exchange for sex?

    Did you ever threaten retaliation, professional or personal, if Egan did not comply with your requests?

    Are there other underaged men with whom you have had sexual relations, either one time or on an ongoing basis? If so, how many?

  9. Egan's lawyer did respond over the weekend. He said he had witnesses that would testify and place Singer in Hawaii. Singer's attorney responded that those witnesses were liars and he threatened them with perjury charges if they tried to lie under oath.

    What I'm curious about are the other names that Egan's lawyer said would be added to this lawsuit. I wonder why he didn't add them in his first filing. Could it be those unnamed other Hollywood insiders are the real target and he's showing them, see the bad publicity Singer is getting, that could be you. By threatening to reveal names is he hoping they'll come forward and offer a settlement? I guess we'll learn more at the press conference Egan's lawyer says he'll have this afternoon.

  18. I'm having a hard time accepting that a victim continued to put himself in what he knew was an unsafe place, repeatedly, and sometimes taking air flights to get there.

    I totally 'get' that it wasn't an even playing field, & that he was possibly underage (depending on state law) but I also know myself at that age.

    To me, he was enticed by all the privilege & is now disheartened life didn't go as planned. I'm especially dubious as he is participating in a documentary about Hollywood Casting Couch abuses.

  23. Of course Singer's lawyer is gonna say he didn't do anything wrong. And of course multiple people that work for Singer are going to have credit cards in Singer's company name that will show his card was in Toronto. And of course they're going to attack Egan's witnesses, cause that's what guilty people do. Before this even came out, if has been investigated for 2 years. Egan just got antsy so he filed in Hawaii before statutes ran out there. Singer has long been known to hang out at the "DEN" parties and at underage clubs throughout Weho, including Tigerheat. Just go online and see him with multiple teenage guys. It might even go away in a blink after Singer writes a check. He put himself in this position and he's definitely not a saint.

  24. Oh come on, we all already know he's guilty. It's just a matter of how much we want to blame him for it.
