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.
James Franco's Ex-Manager
Sued for 8 Years of
Stealing & Skimming Franco's Millions
4/18/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
James Franco's former manager was robbing the actor blind for nearly a decade by skimming commissions and running up huge tabs on Franco's credit card ... this according to a lawsuit filed by the manager's own firm.
Back in 2006 ... Miles Levy allegedly told his partners at James Levy Management that Franco no longer wanted to pay their 15% fee, and instead would only fork over 10%. The firm agreed to the discount, but according to the suit ... Levy continued to charge Franco 15% and just pocketed the 5% for himself.
Miles had some help pulling this off -- according to the docs ... prominent celeb accounting firm Tanner Mainstain helped him set up a shell company to deposit the siphoned cash. Tanner Mainstain also allegedly collected fees for their dirty work.
According to the suit ... Miles was also digging into Franco's pocket by using the actor's credit card to make personal purchases. He allegedly ran up a six-figure balance.
The jig was up last year because according to the docs ... Franco reached a settlement with Miles in December -- but now his former partners at Levy Management want their pound of flesh too.
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.
When Cameron Shows Up
4/18/2014 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Cameron Diaz has an amazing and evil power -- the ability to make Kate Upton's massive boobs disappear.
As Cameron and Kate walked through the Sydney airport Friday -- not only was Kate NOT wearing a low-cut top ... she also pulled her jacket in a futile attempt to conceal her chest.
HUGE difference from Thursday when Kate was solo ... with her girls on full display.
This has been going on for weeks now -- every time Kate goes out with Cameron and Leslie Mann to promote their movie ... the rack gets put away.
Seems to us the spotlight is big enough for all the girls ... including Kate's.
On behalf of humanity, we say -- Cameron must be stopped!
One of Many Who Attend Wild Hollywood Parties
4/18/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The man who accused "X-Men" director Bryan Singer of sexually assaulting him at wild pool parties when he was 15 claimed orgies are common -- and based on what we know ... they are.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... there's a weekly party in L.A. that recruits very young men -- advertising 18 and up, but often attended by people with fake IDs who are underage, along with a bunch of very powerful older men in Hollywood.
The parties are usually held every Thursday night at various nightclubs in the Hollywood and West Hollywood areas.
The night of the party, promoters walk around and get the phone numbers of very good looking guys who appear young.
The promoters then text the people who fit the desirable profile and invite them to a weekend party at a private home.
The home parties often have hundreds of guests ... the young guys along with a number of Hollywood heavyweights, including major agents, movie and TV producers and directors and big names in music.
We're told there are plenty of private places for people to go ... but sometimes things happen out in the open.
Toward the end of the evening, a select few are invited to an after-party, and that's where things often swing out of control. We're told the parties often have drugs and alcohol readily available and it's very clear ... sex is the end game.
As for Bryan Singer, he has denied the allegations made by his accuser. That said ... we're told he attends some of the Thursday night parties. He also hangs with lots of young guys, and of course that's not illegal.
Paul Walker's Brothers

For 'Fast and Furious 7'
4/18/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker's brothers don't just look like him, they sound like him too ... and TMZ has learned the "Fast and Furious 7" folks will use their voices to help fill out portions of Walker's movie dialogue.
Sources close to the the Walker family tell TMZ ... the production team for "FF7" will try something they have never done before ... merging archival audio of Walker's voice with his brothers' voices to fill in some gaps in the movie.
We're told it will take both brothers, Caleb and Cody, to get everything to match up. Our sources say the production team tested the voice of each brother and learned that certain words sound better coming from one brother, and different ones from the other ... so they will combine them to help make the dialogue work.
Our sources say the men have already started working on production.
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 ...

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.

I'm All In
For 'Mrs. Doubtfire' Sequel
4/17/2014 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
At least one of Robin Williams' goddamn "Mrs. Doubtfire" kids wants in on the sequel ... Matthew Lawrence tells TMZ he would love to be a part of it!
The Internet exploded on Wednesday after it was reported that a sequel to the classic 1993 cross-dressing comedy was in the works. Both Williams and director Christopher Columbus are slated to return.
Mara Wilson, who played the youngest daughter in the film, quickly took to Facebook and Twitter to denounce the project, saying, "For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, nor will I."
But TMZ spoke with Lawrence, who played Chris in the original, and he could not be more excited about doing another one, telling us, "Of course I would be on board. I hope they make the second as good as the first. The first was so good."
Lawrence said he had no idea why Mara was so against the idea, but he says he's particularly excited to work with Sally Field again, adding, "It will be great to get the family back together."
Accused of Assaulting Woman
At 'Haunted House 2' Premiere After-Party
4/17/2014 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mike Epps has been accused of punching a woman in the face Wednesday night after the premiere of "Haunted House 2" -- but sources close to Epps tell TMZ, the actor didn't lay a finger on her.
The incident occurred at the after-party at Lucky Strike in Downtown L.A. -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the woman claimed she had a prior romantic relationship with Epps ... and wanted to confront him about something.
According to law enforcement sources, the woman told police Epps then punched her in the face. She called cops and filed a report, but cops say there was zero sign of injury on the woman. Epps also told police he never touched her.
Sources close to Epps insist the woman was nothing more than a fan -- we're told the actor had asked for privacy because he was with his wife ... and the woman allegedly grew belligerent, throwing a drink at both of them. We're told Epps then asked security to escort her out of the party.
Law enforcement sources tell us, the case has been referred to the domestic violence division because the alleged victim claims she had a prior relationship with Epps. The investigation is ongoing.
'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."

Nobody f***s with the Jesus -- a "Big Lebowski" spin-off starring the world's favorite pederast COULD ACTUALLY HAPPEN ... at least according to the guy who plays Jesus in the movie.
John Turturro was out in NYC Tuesday when we asked about the rumors that have been circulating for years -- that the Jesus will rise again -- and John told us ... a spin-off MAY be in the works.
You'll have to watch the video to decide if John's for real or not -- but let's be honest, the Jesus doesn't mess around.
Then again ... 8-year-olds, dude.
