The yacht was owned by wealthy tech investor Lester Waters, as claimed in the lawsuit, and it also alleges that the party was attended by a number of young gay men. Sanchez-Guzman claims Singer claims raped him in 2003, when he was 17. According to the suit, which was filed in state court in Seattle, the director then forcibly performed oral sex on Sanchez-Guzman and then anally penetrated him.
Sanchez-Guzman is represented by Jeffrey Herman, the same attorney who represented Michael Egan in a 2014 lawsuit alleging that Singer raped Egan and forced him to inhale cocaine in 1999.
The alleged victim describes an incident in uncomfortable detail in which Singer is said to have offered to take Sanchez-Guzman on a tour of the luxury yacht.More news: Cardinals: Stanton won't waive no-trade clause for St. Louis
I don't have any inside knowledge about what is going on here but I do wonder if Singer's absence has to do with this lawsuit or a news story which he knows someone is working on about him. Guzman says he again pleaded with Singer to stop, to no avail. According to the complaint, Singer said that he could "hire people who are capable of ruining someone's reputation" if Sanchez-Guzman talked.
As a result of the alleged incident, Sanchez-Guzman said that he'd experienced "severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life".
Bryan Singer, who was recently fired from directing the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, is being sued for sexual assault. Herman also represented aspiring actor Michael Egan, who in 2015 accused Singer and two other prominent Hollywood executives of molesting him when he was a minor.More news: Tennessee To Hire Alabama DC Jeremy Pruitt As Head Coach
Singer recently made headlines after he was sacked from his gig as director of the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, after he reportedly skipped out on several days of filming (via Deadline).
"Bryan Singer approached Cesar and thrust his body on him", the suit says.
"Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end", Brettler said in an email. "Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case". We are confident that this case will turn out the same way the Egan case did.More news: Whistleblower: Flynn said Russian Federation sanctions would be 'ripped up'
