Bryan Singer has been accused of raping a 17-year-old boy in 2003.
Bryan Singer is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a boy who was just 17-years-old at the time, but the X-Men director has denied the allegations.
The alleged victim accused the director of forcing him to perform oral sex and anally penetrating him. The suit was filed in Washington's King County by a man named Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who alleges that Singer attacked him on a yacht when he was a minor.
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.

Margaret Court has the all-time record with 24. "We'd be pretty excited about the possibility (of her coming)", he added. Tiley described the Australian Open, which will be held from January 15-28, as a "family-friendly event".
It's said that when they entered one of the rooms, Singer allegedly thrusted his body onto Guzman, forced him to the floor, and shoved the then-minor's face against his crotch, demanding oral sex.
According to reports, the director missed several days of production following the Thanksgiving holiday, with the film's cinematographer stepping in to direct. Singer was sacked from the film on Tuesday. Guzman is suing for "emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain". Singer allegedly also warned Sanchez-Guzman that if he came forward with his story, he would not be believed, and that Singer had the resources to ruin him. Later, Singer promised the teenager work in Hollywood in exchange for his silence, Variety reported.
A representative for Singer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA TODAY.
The alleged victim is represented by Miami attorney Jeffrey Herman, who represented another man a 2014 lawsuit against Singer, television producer Garth Ancier and former Disney executive David Neuman. Prior to his dismissal, Twentieth Century Fox reportedly received multiple complaints about Singer's unprofessional behaviour, with Jim Beach briefly quitting the film and star Rami Malek getting into a heated altercation with the director.
