Gary Goddard
-- who has produced several big shows on and off-Broadway -- is now speaking out against allegations he participated in a Hollywood sex ring that victimized young boys.

Goddard's attorney tells TMZ, the allegations against the producer are "categorically denied."

As we reported, 31-year-old Michael Egan filed lawsuits against Goddard, "X Men" director Bryan Singer, TV producer Garth Ancier, and former president of Disney TV David Neuman -- claiming they sexually abused him as a young teen at various Hollywood parties and in Hawaii.

But Goddard's lawyer tells us, "Mr. Goddard was not in Hawaii with Mr. Egan. He did not molest or touch or annoy Mr. Egan or commit any of the acts alleged.  Also, he did not furnish drugs or alcohol to any minor at any time." Ancier and Neuman have also denied the allegations.

The lawyer calls Egan's claims "so fantastical as to be unbelievable on their face."

This was the last boy toy rape story for two days. Now all other news break stories have been dropped just like that. Why wasn't Singer's fox hen house denial covered? Conflicted interest, TMZ?

I believe this man. May the Angels come to aid him.
This is David going against the Goliaths of Hollywood and beyond. Odd how even the hetero A-listers are mute. Is it b/c many of them, themselves had to suffer the so-called infamous "audition couches"? One wonders...
There are plenty of examples on the internet of female and male stars , singers, models, etc. who have mentioned the sexual favors they had to do in order to get their careers started and to keep them going. This has happened in other countries, as well (H.K./Taiwan).

For those of you who do not understand human psychology, who have not honestly taken the time to remember or reflect upon peer pressure, one's identity in the world and one's sexuality (introduction to sex for the first time with another individual) when they were teenagers, or who have never been close to anyone whom was perceived as rich and generous, it is easy to judge. Be honest.
There is a phenomena of an innocent, young person being "star struck". It happens to people of all ages- they are known as"hanger ons" and star -f *rs. Money, fame, dreams, expensive lifestyles-- all play a role. It is part and parcel to the attraction. An entourage is formed. Few people say no to free dinner at exclusive restaurants, being lavished with expensive gifts, being associated with 'cool' and ' powerful' people. C'mon, it is high school again but on a higher level. These kids were being groomed by sexual predators and they didn't even know it because they were young, innocent and naive virgins.
