Bryan Singer Talks Firing From 'Bohemian Rhapsody' And Fate of Kevin Spacey

12/8/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Singer was shockingly candid and patient with our photog, who asked him a wide range of questions, from sexual assault allegations, to getting fired from "Bohemian Rhapsody" to allegations involving an actor he made famous -- Kevin Spacey.

We got Singer Thursday coming out of Mel's Drive-In in WeHo and started the conversation by asking about getting 86'd from the flick about Freddie Mercury and Queen. He says at first the firing had nothing to do with the various sexual assault allegations. He says he never got a straight answer from the studio, but a few minutes later certainly suggests the firing was connected to the allegations, saying the studio wouldn't offer a public explanation because "the reason would be, in my opinion, inaccurate and embarrassing."

As for Kevin Spacey, he says actor Gabriel Byrne is just dead wrong when he says "The Usual Suspects" was shut down for a time because of Spacey's behavior. But, when our photog asked if he'd work with Spacey again, Singer said it was a "loaded question."

Finally, Singer says a lawsuit against the studio that just fired him is an option he's considering. 

Queen Trump's Not Our Champion of the World

6/9/2016 6:14 AM PDT

Brian May from Queen has a stern warning for Donald Trump ... he's not their champion.

Trump's been using "We are the Champions" as his walk-out lately, and May grouses the Republican nominee has not asked for nor has he been given permission.

May adds the group is taking steps to stop Trump in his tracks from using the track, adding, "I will make sure we take what steps we can to dissociate ourselves from Donald Trump's unsavory campaign." 

In fairness to Trump, May says "it has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool."
