At a 2 p.m. press conference in Beverly Hills Monday, Jeff Herman, the lawyer representing the 31-year-old man accusing X-Men director Bryan Singer of raping him as a teen, will announce three more lawsuits. CBS LA reports that the three named will be “Hollywood executives.”
The plaintiff, Michael Egan, alleges that Singer and others were part of a pedophilia ring that regularly used alcohol and illegal drugs to intoxicate young boys before sexually assaulting them. Egan also claims that he was “threatened with physical violence to keep quiet.”
One of the men named but not part of the suit is Marc Collins-Rector, a digital entrepreneur and apparent business associate of Singer’s who in 2004 was convicted of transporting minors across state lines for sexual acts.
Through his attorney, Singer has denied all of the charges and threatened a counter-suit. Singer also claims he has proof that he was not in Hawaii when Egan claims Singer drugged and raped him there.
