Hollywood director Bryan Singer has been dogged by accusations of sexual predation of young boys for decades and it looks like those accusations about to resurface.
Singer is just about to celebrate the debut of Bohemian Rhapsody, his biographical film of troubled Queen front man Freddy Mercury. But just as he is preparing for the film’s debut, it appears that Esquire magazine is about to publish yet another expose about the accusations against the director.
Though the specifics of the Esquire article remain unknown at this time, it clearly paints Singer in an unflattering light given that the director has already blasted it as a story that will “rehash false accusations and bogus lawsuits.”
“In today’s climate where people’s careers are harmed by mere accusations, what Esquire is attempting to do is a reckless disregard for the truth, making assumptions that are fictional and irresponsible,” Singer wrote Monday morning on Instagram.
According to TheWrap, Esquire did reach out to Singer for comment; he declined. A source close to Singer claimed that reporter Max Potter is the likely author of the Esquire article. It should be made available this week.
Director Bryan Singer has had a raft of sexual assault allegations made against him — and most of the allegations involve teenaged boys.
According to Daily Wire, there are more than just a few accusations against the director.
Singer was dragged into court in 2014 when an actor accused the director of drugging him and sexually assaulting him when he was younger.
In 1997 a 14-year-old boy said that Singer demanded that a group of boys shower nude in a film Singer was making.
In 2017, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman claimed that Singer raped him back in 2003.
It’s hard to say what the upcoming Esquire piece will dredge back up.
