A man who says he was sexually abused by X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer says he reported the molestation to authorities but nothing was done about it.
Michael Egan III sued Singer in a federal court in Hawaii on Wednesday claiming he was abused by the director in the late 1990s when he was 17 years old.
Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, has said that Egan’s claims are absurd and defamatory.
Egan said he reported the abuse to Los Angeles police and the FBI, but does not know why the director wasn’t charged.
Los Angeles Police Commander Andrew Smith said the department is looking into whether a report was made. A phone message left for an FBI spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
The former child model and aspiring actor is accusing X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him as a teenager in a federal lawsuit filed in Hawaii.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday says the prominent director of the forthcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past forced Egan into sex during parties in California and Hawaii when he was 17.
