Bryan Singer Steps Back From X-Men: Days of Future Past Promotion Due to Sex Abuse Claims
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.24.2014



Bryan Singer has decided to step away from the promotional campaign for X-Men: Days of Future Past in the wake of the sex abuse lawsuit filed against him. Singer issued a statement (courtesy of Variety) in which he calls the claims "outrageous, vicious and completely false" and says that he will not participate in promotion of the film due to the likelihood that the lawsuit will distract from attention for the film.

As previously reported, Singer is being sued by Michael Egan. Egan claims in his suit that Singer coerced Egan into sexual relations via alcohol, drugs and sexual assault in California and Hawaii in 1998 and 1999 when he was fifteen and seventeen, respectively.

Singer has previously suggested that he may countersue for defamation. The full statement is below:

The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. 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. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support.
