Hollywood Execs Sued By Singer Accuser Deny Sex Abuse Allegations
Monday in Beverly Hills, 31 year-old Michael Egan added three Hollywood executives to his list of those he is suing along with "X-Men" director Bryan Singer. Egan claims all four men sexually abused him against his will as a teenager in 1999. THR reports that TV executive Garth Ancier, former Disney TV president David Neuman and Broadway producer Gary Goddard are denying the allegations.
Ancier and Goddard expressed their denials through attorneys. Neuman took to Twitter:
Neuman, in five tweets, said: “Hey everyone: obviously I have to be talking to and through lawyers, but I just want everyone to know right now that the disgusting allegations made against me are COMPLETELY FALSE. Also very shocking in that they don’t just stretch the truth, they are whole-cloth lies with zero basis in reality or truth. Sickening, and very evil, for anyone to lie like that, let alone in a legal document. Stay tuned; I will set the record straight. And thank you to the many friends who have reached out to me with messages of faith and support. I deeply appreciate it.”
In a sixth tweet, Neuman simply posted the following link: “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou_shalt_not_bear_false_witness_against_thy_neighbour.”
Singer has also denied the charges, has threatened a countersuit, and claims to have proof he was not in Hawaii when the alleged rape took place.
