EXCLUSIVE

Monica Lewinsky Strip Club Job Offer

Monica Lewinsky
just got an offer to handle big bills in the cigar biz ... at a famous strip club -- and it's a serious offer that pays six figures ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained a letter written by the head honcho of SCORES ... offering Lewinsky a position at their Atlantic City club as a hostess in their Sports and Cigar Bar.

CEO Mark Yakow says he made the offer after reading a recent Vanity Fair article ... where Monica complained she can't get jobs because of her "history."

Yakow says the hostess gig pays $100K a year -- and does not require stripping ... but he's only giving her until Saturday to accept.

Sounds like easy money ... hope she doesn't blow it.

NBC 'Dateline' Lawsuit

I Was Used As Sexual Bait

For 'The Sperminator'

5/6/2014 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506-wild-wild-web-nbc-03Women at "Dateline NBC" were routinely used as sexual decoys for stories about prostitution, sex trafficking, and sexual deviants ... according to a female producer who says NBC turned a blind eye to her fears ... but NBC says her claims are bogus.

Kimberly Lengle's lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- claims she was used as bait for dangerous -- and often sexually-oriented -- undercover segments ... including one about a man known as the "Sperminator" -- who billed himself as "a natural intercourse sperm donor."

Lengle says NBC honchos pressured her to respond -- often with her own photo -- to potentially dangerous predators ... for a series called "Wild, Wild Web," adding she was required to engage in sexually explicit conversations.

She claims one of the producers even set her up with training on how to be a prostitute.

According to the lawsuit  ... none of the male producers were used as sexual decoys. Lengle says her bosses retaliated against her after she complained to HR ... and she resigned after her complaints were determined to be unfounded.

A rep at NBC tells TMZ, "We took this freelancer’s allegations very seriously and determined that her claims were entirely without merit. We will vigorously defend our position in this case."

Bryan Singer & Gary Goddard

New Accuser Sues ...

It Started When I Was 14

Bryan Singer and Gary Goddard have just been sued by another man who claims the showbiz honchos sexually assaulted him as a boy ... a campaign of abuse he says started when he was just 14.

The lawsuit was filed today on behalf of a John Doe -- now 25 -- who claims Goddard established an online relationship with him back in 2003, and it quickly escalated into nude video chatting. The accuser alleges Goddard masturbated during these video chat sessions.

When he was 16, the accuser alleges Goddard invited him to London where they engaged in anal intercourse. The accuser claims Singer got involved roughly a year later in 2006 following the London premiere after party for "Superman Returns."

He claims Singer and Goddard plied him with alcohol during the party and brought him back to a hotel room, where a muscular man forced him into submitting to Singer and Goddard's sexual advances.

The accuser claims he refused to have sex with Singer, so Singer asked him to sit on his chest and ejaculate instead. Singer has adamantly denied the allegations.

The lawsuit was announced during a news conference Monday by the accuser's attorney Jeff Herman, who also showed blacked-out photos of his client hanging out with Goddard and Singer on the red carpet. The alleged victim was not present during the news conference.

Herman says the accuser was inspired to come forward by his other client -- 31-year-old Michael Egan -- who is also suing Singer and Goddard (as well as others) with similar allegations of underage sex abuse.

0424-bryan-singer-x-men-tmz-01Bryan Singer insists he never laid a finger on the man accusing the "X-Men" director of raping him as a 15-year-old -- but he's not about to squander a perfectly good publicity opportunity for his new movie.

Bryan released a statement, saying, "The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false," immediately adding, "I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past."

As we reported, 31-year-old Michael Egan filed lawsuits against Singer, Broadway producer Gary Goddard, 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.

Singer has remained silent longer than the other three -- and only today spoke out, condemning the allegations ... but not without promoting "X-Men: Days of Future Past" in the process.

Singer's statement continues, "This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I've decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film."

Singer concludes, "I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is."

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."

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

Bryan Singer Accuser

Alleged Sex Abuse Victim

Accuses 3 More Hollywood Honchos

4/21/2014 1:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-ancier-goddard-Neumon-03
The man who has sued "X-Men" director Bryan Singer -- claiming he was sexually assaulted when he was 15 -- has just filed lawsuits against 3 other Hollywood big wigs, also claiming sexual assault.

The 3 men named in the new lawsuit are Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard

Ancier has a slew of hits under his belt, including The Ricki Lake Show, which he created.  He headed up the Fox entertainment group and produced 21 Jump Street, Married ... with Children, The Simpsons and In Living Color.  He also developed Home Improvement at Disney.  And at NBC he put The West Wing on the air.

Neuman is the former president of Disney TV.  Goddard produced off-Broadway shows. 

According to the new lawsuits, Ancier sexually abused Egan numerous times by sodomizing him, forcing oral sex and fondling him -- when he was 15 at an Encino estate.   The suit goes on to allege Ancier sexually abused Egan in Hawaii 2 years later.

The suit against Goddard and Neuman are similar -- alleging they were part of a Hollywood sex ring, giving Egan alcohol and drugs and sexually assaulted him at the Encino estate and in Hawaii.

Michael Egan -- now 31 -- and his lawyer, Jeff Herman are holding a news conference detailing the new allegations. 

Egan's mother, Bonnie, sobbed uncontrollably as she tried explaining why she let her son go to adult parties and on trips to Hawaii.  She said the alleged abusers seemed like nice people.

The state of Hawaii has allowed alleged victims of sexual assault to sue, even if the statute of limitations has long since expired -- but the deadline for filing is Thursday.

Hollywood Party Accuser

A Dude Drugged and Raped Me

After Siegfried and Roy Show

4/21/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420-michael-egan-Document-Launch-Template
TMZ has obtained FBI documents detailing shocking allegations of sexual abuse involving minors and Hollywood types ... and it's simply shocking.

As TMZ previously reported ... Michael Egan is suing "X-Men" director Bryan Singer for sexually assaulting him numerous times at a party at a mansion in Encino, CA.  Singer denies it.  Egan claims he went to the FBI in 2000 but sources tell us he NEVER complained about Singer.

It appears, however, Egan DID complain about the men who owned the mansion -- Marc Collins-Rector and Chad Shackley.  TMZ has obtained an affidavit written by FBI Special Agent Joseph Brine.  We know Egan -- who was 15 at the time of the alleged assault -- is referred to as Minor #4.

In the affidavit -- dated May, 2003 -- Egan says Shackley's younger brother invited him to a graduation party at the Encino estate.  According to the docs, there were 5 to 6 people present, including Rector and Shackley -- Singer is not mentioned. 

Egan claims during the party, Rector told him "90 percent of show business was gay and that you needed to sleep with people if you wanted to go anywhere."    Rector allegedly warned, "We stay together, but you do not want to see my dark side," and then displayed a gun.

Rector allegedly said he was one of the 25 most powerful people in Hollywood and it would be a mistake to make the group angry.

What followed, according to Egan, was a barrage of sexual assaults at the estate and elsewhere.  Most shockingly, Egan says he was taken to a Siegfried and Roy show in Vegas, drugged and when he awoke he felt a pain in his rectal area and realized he had been sodomized by Shackley.

Collins-Rector was charged with 21 counts of sexual assault. He copped a plea to 1 count.  We're told Collins-Rector and Shackley fled the country.

The other minors who are mentioned in the complaint tell wild stories ... being flown from various states to California, offered $100K a year for college tuition, cars and other perks in return for sex.

One minor was allegedly told by Rector if he refused to have sex he'd be sent back to his "hick town" and never have a life.
