Former Disney Exec David Neuman has been quietly dropped from a sexual molestation case filed by a man who raked him over the coals at a very public news conference.
Michael Egan -- now 31 -- filed the suit against Neuman in April, claiming Neuman was part of a Hollywood sex ring repeatedly preying on Egan at pool parties, who was 15 at the time. Egan's lawyer, Jeff Herman, held a news conference where he and Egan attacked Neuman and others.
But Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, filed legal docs blowing Egan's claim out of the water, producing a sworn declaration from Egan back in 2003 in which Egan said he "never had any kind of physical contact" with Neuman that was sexual and that Neuman "never acted inappropriately."
Egan and Herman did not hold a news conference to announce the dismissal of the lawsuit. We spoke with Herman but he had no comment.
Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, told the Hollywood Reporter, "We will hold accountable those who wrongly created the hurt and damage by making outrageous, unfounded assertions that cannot be undone."
Egan has not dropped his cases against 2 other Hollywood big wigs, but this isn't going to help his credibility.

Larry Flynt's daughter Theresa is off the hook in her sexual harassment case ... in fact, TMZ has learned her accuser has taken back all his claims.

Santa Barbara Massacre
Shooter Vows to Kill
Out of Sexual Frustration
5/24/2014 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The horrific massacre at UCSB Friday night -- in which 6 people were shot dead -- seemed to be triggered by a maniac who was angry at women because they would not have sex with him ... and TMZ has learned shooter has a connection to "Hunger Games."
22-year-old Elliot Rodger posted a YouTube video hours before he unleashed his violence on the streets of Isla Vista -- the UCSB community. We've learned Rodger is the son of Peter Rodger, the second unit director of the first installment of "Hunger Games."
Elliot Rodger was killed as he engaged Sheriff's deputies who responded to the scene. He died from a gunshot wound to the head, although it's unclear if it was self-inflicted.
In the video you hear Rodger's fury at the women who did not find him attractive and you hear his resolve at getting revenge.
According to reports ... a lawyer for Peter Rodger says the director contacted police several weeks ago about YouTube clips his son had uploaded in regards to "suicide and killing people."
The Associated Press says the lawyer claims police interviewed Elliot and found him to be a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human."
"My client's mission in life will be to try to prevent any such tragedies from ever happening again," the lawyer said. Adding, "This country, this world, needs to address mental illness and the ramifications from not recognizing these illnesses."

Bryan Singer Accuser
Former Disney Prez Never Molested Me
5/15/2014 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former Disney Prez David Neuman and "X-Men" director Bryan Singer did not sexually molest accuser Michael Egan -- so claimed Egan himself in sworn legal docs.
Egan signed a sworn declaration in 2003 after suing 3 other men (not Neuman or Singer) ... who allegedly molested him as a teenager back in the '90s at various parties.
Egan's 2003 declaration states, "I have never had any kind of physical contact with David Neuman other than what is normal and appropriate between non-sexual acquaintances."
The declaration goes on, "Up until this last month [December 2003], I have only had incidental social contact with David Neuman, which involved primarily the exchange of polite greetings and small talk. … [Neuman] never acted improperly around me or toward me, on a personal or professional level."
And get this ... during Egan's sworn deposition in the earlier case, he said no one other than the 3 defendants were "partaking in all this stuff." Egan now claims Singer was partaking, but his sworn words a decade ago flatly contradict that.
Neuman is asking the judge to throw out the case against him.
Latest MJ Accuser
He Kept Me Out of School
... So He Could Molest Me
5/14/2014 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The lawyer for the latest Michael Jackson sexual molestation accuser is coming out swinging ... telling TMZ the pop star routinely made the young boy skip school so he could be "available" to MJ.
James Safechuck's lawyer, Maryann Marzano, tells TMZ ... MJ publicly flaunted his relationship with the boy, making it appear they were best friends and Safechuck was Michael's protege. The lawyer says in reality MJ was privately molesting the kid.
As TMZ previously reported, James Safechuck (who appeared alongside MJ in a 1987 Pepsi commercial) is accusing Jackson of years of sexual abuse. MJ estate attorney Howard Weitzman has called the allegations "false and scurrilous."
Marzano says a "narcissistic" MJ would prevent Safechuck from going to school as a 10 and 11-year-old so the boy could be available to him when he was on tour.
Marzano tells TMZ, "If there is still any question about the predatory nature of Michael Jackson’s so-called ‘friendships’ with young boys, it should be laid to rest by the indisputable facts of what Michael did to James Safechuck."
The specific accusations are sealed, but Marzano says the case against Michael is airtight.
Cracks Date Rape Joke
During Club Appearance
5/11/2014 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus advocation for sex, drugs and everything else crossed a line the other day ... when she cracked a date rape joke while going on about how "everyone is a little bit gay."
Cyrus was performing at the legendary G-A-Y nightclub in London, when she brought a friend out on stage to wish him a happy birthday.
In discussing her friend's sexuality, Cyrus remarked, "You know, everyone’s a little bit gay … It’s the truth. Everyone’s gay, all it takes is one cocktail. And if that doesn’t work, sprinkle something in their drink. That’s what I always do."
This off-color comment follows her bizarre rant earlier in the week where she told her audience to quit smoking cigarettes and start smoking weed because it helps you get laid.

Chrissy Teigen needed to think LONG and hard to figure out her her all-time record for number of times having sex in a single day ... before giving us a mysterious response.
Chrissy was out in New York when we sprang the question -- specifically about her sex record with husband John Legend -- and for some reason she put us on hold while she went into a meeting, telling us ... "Ask it again."
50 minutes later we did ... and Chrissy finally gave up the goods.
Her answer's not bad ... but we can't shake the feeling she's hiding something.

5/10/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Vatican City has at least one porn lover on the loose -- someone who's frequently logging on to a popular porn website ... and TMZ has learned there's a good chance it's a woman.
The site is called sssh.com ... which bills itself as porn for "open-minded women who enjoy exploring their sexuality" -- and a rep for the site tells us a routine check of data revealed the IP address of one their members leads back to the Vatican.
We're told the user (or users) visited the site at least once a month for the past year, with November 2013 being an especially busy month ... with 19 visits!
The rep for sssh.com tells TMZ, "It just shows that a healthy interest in erotica is something that can be found anywhere -- even within the Vatican."
We reached out to the Vatican, but haven't heard back. They probably have their hands full.

Jada Pinkett Smith was locked and loaded Wednesday ... telling photogs the pic of her 13-year-old daughter in a bed with a 20-year-old guy was innocent ... and we're all "covert pedophiles" for thinking otherwise.
