Bryan Singer believes he has proof that will blow his sexual accuser out of the water ... he was NOT in Hawaii during the period he allegedly committed a sexual assault.
Michael Egan claims in a new lawsuit Singer anally raped him and forced hard drugs on him during 2 separate trips to Hawaii in August and October, 1999.
Sources connected with Singer tell TMZ ... the "X-Men" director has proof he was NOT in Hawaii during that period ... he was in Toronto shooting the first "X-Men" movie.
We're told Singer will file credit card bills and various other documents proving he was in Toronto during the times in question.
We know the movie itself was shot Sept. 22 - March 3 in Toronto, but there was pre-production and we're told Singer was present.
My Accuser Has Suspicious Selective Memory
Of Sexual Assault
4/18/2014 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Bryan Singer Accuser
I Was Repeatedly Raped at Hollywood Orgies
4/17/2014 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Egan, who just sued "X-Men" director Bryan Singer for allegedly sexually assaulting him when he was a minor, says he complained to the LAPD that he was repeatedly sodomized at Hollywood parties by various moguls ... but no action was taken.
Egan says he and other minors were passed around like pieces of meat at sex parties, and he claims Singer was not alone.
Egan says his mother went to the FBI and LAPD back in 2000 and he was even interviewed ... he has no idea what happened.
Egan says he sued 2 men who he claims molested him at parties back in 2000, but Singer was NOT named. Egan's current lawyer, Jeff Herman, doesn't know why his client's former lawyer did not sue the "X-Men" director.
The home where the sexually-charged pool parties allegedly occurred was in Encino. It used to be owned by Suge Knight, who sold it Marc Collins-Rector. Suge is not involved in the case, but Egan says Collins-Rector was one of the main perps. Criminal charges were filed against Collins-Rector -- he copped a plea to one count of having sex with a minor. Attorney Herman says Collins-Rector has fled the country.
Egan says the men at the party would pour liquor down his throat and then sexually assault him. In one case he says Collins-Rector put a gun in his mouth and threatened him.
Egan says other minors were also abused, and Herman vows to file 3 or 4 more lawsuits against the alleged perps by next Thursday.
Egan went on to say there was a "no swimsuit" rule in the pool, and he was raped numerous times by numerous individuals.
Herman said "Hollywood moguls have been using their positions of authority to exploit children sexually."
Bryan Singer's lawyer tells TMZ the allegations are absurd and defamatory.

The lawyer for the man who is suing "X-Men" director Bryan Singer has given us this picture of his client -- taken around the time Singer allegedly drugged and sexually abused the then 17-year-old.
Attorney Jeff Herman gave TMZ this photo of his client, Mike Egan ... a photo taken when Egan was 17. Herman wanted to make the point ... Egan looked underage when he went to Hawaii with Singer on a trip in which the director allegedly anally raped Egan multiple times ... so he claims in the lawsuit.
Herman tells TMZ ... Egan will be present at a news conference today at 2 PM PDT where he will discuss his allegations.
As we previously reported ... Egan claims he encountered Singer numerous times ... the first of which was at a gay party in Encino, CA where Singer allegedly forced Egan -- who was 14 or 15 at the time -- to perform oral sex on him underwater in a pool.
Egan says in the lawsuit he is heterosexual.
Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ the allegations are utterly false and publicity driven.
Check out Egan and his lawyer below ... Egan says everyone turned a deaf ear to him when it allegedly happened.
Transgender B. Scott
Loses Discrimination Battle with BET
4/17/2014 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
BET can dress its hosts however the hell it wants -- even if that means forcing a transgender person to dress like a man -- and that's why the judge threw out B. Scott's discrimination lawsuit.
TMZ broke the story, Scott sued the network, claiming it humiliated him during the BET Awards last year by forcing him to change from women's clothes into men's clothes ... and then yanking him off the show entirely.
But the judge in the case just ruled in the network's favor, dismissing the lawsuit.
The judge ruled BET has the 1st Amendment right to run its shows the way it wants ... and that includes ordering Scott to change from women's to men's clothes ... and that's that.
Scott tells TMZ, "It disheartens me that the message sent today wasn't a message of acceptance, but rather it's acceptable to discriminate against transgender individuals on the basis of their gender identity and expression."
Scott's attorney has said he plans to appeal the decision.
'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer
Sued for Allegedly Sexually Molesting Teen ...
Singer Calls BS
4/16/2014 8:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"X-Men" director Bryan Singer has been sued by a man who claims Singer molested him when he was a young teenager at raunchy Hollywood parties ... but Singer says the suit is an outrageous pack of lies.
The lawsuit claims the teen -- who is now around 30 -- was lured to a mansion in Encino, CA when he was 14 or 15 to attend a party that allegedly had a rep for featuring "sexual contact between adult males and the many teenage boys who were present for the parties."
The lawsuit claims Singer provided alcohol for the boy and offered him a role in one of his upcoming movies, and then told him how "this group" controls Hollywood. The suit claims Singer performed oral sex on the boy and then strong-armed the boy to return the favor -- allegedly forcing him to perform the act underwater in the pool.
The suit goes on to accuse Singer of providing the boy with drugs -- including coke -- on another occasion, allegedly promising him a role in an "X-Men" flick.
Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer, says, "The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit. We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit."
Attorney Singer adds, "It is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity at a time when Bryan's new movie is about to open in a few weeks."
Johnny to Victor
There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation
From Here on Out!
4/15/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir wrote a 5-page post-nup which is part of his newfangled reconciliation package with Victor Voronov -- and Johnny makes it clear mutual masturbation will NOT be tolerated.
TMZ broke the story ... Johnny and Victor agreed over the weekend to call off their divorce, but Victor wanted Johnny to sign a document apologizing for trashing Victor in the media and promising to keep Johnny's mom out of their relationship.
So Johnny fired back with a document of his own, which, among other things, defines the type of cheating that will not be tolerated. The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the following:
-- sex outside the marriage
-- oral sex outside the marriage
-- kissing or making out
-- aggressive flirting
-- mutual masturbation
-- social media/grindr/dating
And it gets better. According to the document, if either one has a situation where they're "in close range or contact with someone from our past or someone to be part of the future" ... the other can veto the contact. Johnny specifically gives an example of a figure skater he dated.
The document also requires joint STD tests every 6 months with the results being read with both in the room.
And there's a section about splitting assets if they ultimately get divorced: "Should a gift be given, i.e., the Cartier Roadster (R.I.P.), the gift belongs to you." Someone broke the watch!
And finally ... there's a section titled "Ultimatums." Johnny lists examples of Victor's ultimatums, including, "If I give you one more day to get your bank records to me, then I want to have a free f*** of anyone I want."
Suing BET Has Me Feeling
Like Oprah Winfrey!
4/13/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
B. Scott and Oprah Winfrey have something in common -- all their life, they had to fight! -- at least that's what Scott says as part of his lawsuit against BET ... claiming he feels like O's character in "The Color Purple."
As TMZ first reported, B. Scott -- an openly gay transgender person -- is suing BET, claiming the network humiliated him during last year's BET Awards by yanking him off the show because he was wearing women's clothes.
Scott says in the deposition -- obtained by TMZ -- before the blow-up he hadn't thought of himself as a transgender person, but during his battle with BET he came to realize that's exactly who he is.
He explains, "I feel like Sofia in 'The Color Purple.' 'All my life I had to fight!' Because of my experience with BET, it led me to the realization that I am transgender because of my gender identity and expression, it was specifically because of my gender and not my sexuality that made me a target."
BET just got purpled.
Thanks LGBT ...

UMass Basketball Player

UMass basketball player Derrick Gordon has announced he's gay -- making him the first openly gay basketball player in Division 1 men's college basketball.
"I just didn't want to hide anymore, in any way," 22-year-old Gordon said ... "I didn't want to have to lie or sneak. I've been waiting and watching for the last few months, wondering when a Division I player would come out, and finally I just said, 'Why not me?'"
Gordon says he was inspired by Jason Collins -- who came out as the first openly gay NBA player last year.
"That was so important to me, knowing that sexuality didn't matter, that the NBA was OK with it," Gordon said.
A rep for the University issued a statement saying, "UMass is proud to have Derrick Gordon as a member of our athletic family and to honor his courage and openness as a gay student-athlete."
"UMass is committed to creating a welcoming climate where every student-athlete, coach and staff member can be true to themselves as they pursue their athletic, academic and professional goals."
Olympic Paycheck Couldn't Buy Me a Purse!
4/7/2014 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir appears to be way more cash strapped -- and less marketable -- than anyone thought, because reports that he made a cool million for the Winter Olympics are exaggerated 40 times over.
TMZ has obtained a draft of the contract Johnny signed with NBC. The network offered him an anemic $25,000 for the Sochi games. And get this ... NBC also wanted him to FLY COACH for the domestic flights.
Johnny's lawyer didn't even push back and make a counteroffer.
There were a few extras. NBC offered an addition $40K for Johnny to show up at 8 non-Olympic events. So the grand total for Mr. Weir was a whopping $65K.
FYI -- a Hermes Birkin 35 Pelouse Porosus Crocodile will set you back $78,000 ... and that's USED!

Fitness guru Cara Castronuova isn't very discriminating ... she'll go on a date with ANYONE who's willing to pay the asking price -- $10,000.
Cara -- an ex-trainer on "The Biggest Loser" -- tells TMZ she's raising money for her charity -- Knockout Obesity -- by offering a romantic evening in NYC with anyone who ponies up 10 grand.
The best part ... she's open to men and women.
Cara says she hopes to go on at least 3 dates so she can send 50 overweight kids to fat camp. She's moved by the heartbreaking letters she gets ... including one from a boy who told her he desperately wants to shed lbs so other kids will stop pinching his stomach.
So what do you get for your money? Cara says the date consists of dinner at a really nice place and then seeing the new Rocky musical on Broadway.
But here's the deal ... you have to pick up the tab for dinner ... and pay your own way to NYC. She'll take care of the theater tix.
There could be an added bonus ... she says, "Maybe I can find love and kill two birds with one stone."
