Bryan Singer

My Accuser Has Suspicious Selective Memory

Of Sexual Assault

4/18/2014 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-bryan-singer-mike-10
The 31-year-old man who is suing "X-Men" director Bryan Singer for allegedly sexually assaulting him in a swimming pool at a 1998 L.A. party claims he didn't remember the incident until recently ... yet he filed a lawsuit over the very same party in 2000 alleging sexual abuse against 3 other men and had a clear memory of what they did to him.

Michael Egan claims in his new lawsuit Singer forced oral sex at the party when he was 15.  He's very graphic, claiming Singer held his head underwater and forced him to orally copulate the director.

But TMZ has obtained the lawsuit Egan filed in 2000 against 3 men, including Marc Collins-Rector, who owned the party house.  Singer was NOT named in the suit and no reference is made to him.  Egan ended up getting a default judgment of more than $2 million, but we're told Collins-Rector and the others left the country so Egan got virtually nothing.

So fast forward to Wednesday, when Egan sued Singer.  At his news conference Thursday, Egan said he blocked the incident long ago and numbed himself with alcohol, but became sober recently and started therapy ... which unleashed a flood of bad memories involving Singer.

Sources connected to Singer tell TMZ ... they believe it's ridiculous Egan could remember the pool party in question in such vivid detail as to 3 other men but repress memories of Singer.

So is this the way it's going to be for the next 7 days, TMZ? You have appointed yourself the judge and jury and you are going to print every little tidbit you can find - doesn't matter if it's the truth. Why don't you go back to what you do best - answer the phone when Pimp Mama Kris calls, write a vapid story and use the words "our sources close to the family".

I wonder which washed-up HOLLYWOOD STAR will be playing Bryan Singer in the LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE about this sick story?

Ok. I'm not defending anyone or anything but some of you need to set your prejudice aside for a minute. Straight rich people have straight clothing optional pool parties. Gay people have gay clothing optional pool parties. None of that has anything to do with rape.

This male escort allowed himself to be passed around in hope of something in return. Now he wants to cash in on someone else's success. The same thing could happen to any straight hollywood success with any starlet. It's just a form of extortion unless you can prove that he was actually raped.

So he was a former male prostitute now looking for a payday. That doesn't make it rape.

My hope for him this time is if he gets another few million in judgment that he doesn't return to the plastic surgeon who he's been going to, or maybe finds a new one who can make him look a bit more human.

Interesting to know if others members of Hollywoods gay mafia are a little unsettled - all the counter charges of he's a gold digger etc don't work so well when the gold digger is 15

So this guy is claiming that he was assaulted at a number of different parties, not just once. So after it happened the first time, instead of going to the police he continued to go back for more? He wasn't assaulted, he was a willing participant.

Interesting, not once has he denied knowing the man, so why would and adult be at a pool party with all men and underage boys in the first place? FOR SEX. We all know what goes on up in the hills, and yes we all know Mr. Singer is no different than the rest that attend these private do not tell parties. YOU GOT CAUGHT! lol.. Karma is a bitch!

Singer probably has a common face and a voice or personality that is not very distinct plus the victims were always drugged up and drunk....this explains why he now realizes singer was a perpetrator....

Obviously the timing's cir***spect, yet all that matters is if the claims are truthful. If so, pay up, Mr. Singer.
