Just days after Bryan Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody, the director is now facing a lawsuit for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year boy in Washington State back in 2003. Then, Singer "lured Cesar into a room, shut the door and demanded that Cesar perform oral sex", as described in a press release from his attorney.

Cesar Sanchez-Guzman claims that he was sexually assaulted by Singer on a yacht in Seattle. Guzman says that, after meeting Singer, the director offered to take Guzman on a tour of the boat.

According to the filing, Sanchez-Guzman has suffered greatly since the alleged assault and is seeking an unknown amount of money as a settlement. He says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated him, all while ignoring Guzman's pleas.

Afterward, the suit claims, Singer contacted Sanchez-Guzman to dangle the promise of a Hollywood career in exchange for his silence.

Besides those two cases, Singer has been the subject of various other sexual misconduct allegations over the years.

Michael Egan III filed a civil suit against Singer in 2014, alleging the director had drugged him and forced him to have sex at parties at a mansion in Encino and in Hawaii.

Guzman claims he suffered "emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain".

As TMZ reports, the allegations come via new lawsuit filed against Singer, who is perhaps best known for helming various X-Men films.

"Later, Bryan Singer approached Cesar and told him that he was a producer in Hollywood and that he could help Cesar get into acting as long as Cesar never said anything about the incident", the three claim document adds.

It is now unclear whether or not Twentieth Century Fox, the studio behind Bohemian Rhapsody, knew about the allegations outlined in the new lawsuit. "Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case".
