Bryan Singer's Accuser Sued For The Same Crime In 2000

But he claims he only remembered it recently...
TMZ reports that the 31-year-old man who is suing director Bryan Singer claims he didn't remember being sexually assaulted in a pool by Singer at a 1998 Los Angeles party until recently. However, he filed a lawsuit over the same party in 2000, claiming three other men sexually abused him. He had a clear memory of the incident at the time.
Michael Egan said that Singer forced him to perform oral sex on him when he was fifteen. He claims that Singer held his head underwater before forcing him to commit the act on him.
Egan filed a lawsuit in 2000 against three different men, including party house owner Marc Collins-Rector. Singer was not named in the suit and there is no reference to him. Egan received a default judgment of over $2 million, but Collins-Rector and others left the country so Egan didn't get much.
At the news conference announcing his lawsuit on Thursday, Egan claimed he blocked the incident years ago and drank alcohol heavily. When he got sober and began therapy, he remembered Singer.
Singer and his legal team think it's ludicrous that Egan would remember the party in vivid detail for the other three men but only repress memories of Singer.
