Bryan Singer Could Reportedly Lose Job On X-Men: Apocalypse Due To Sex Abuse Scandal
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.09.2014

Radar Online reports that Bryan Singer could lose his job directing X-Men: Apocalypse thanks to the sex abuse allegations from Michael Egan. Singer is currently talking with 20th Century Fox about the lawsuit and if he should still direct. Singer's legal team has allegedly provided Fox with proof that the claims are false but money isn't the problem.

A source said: "Fox isn't confident in it not heavily impacting production. Bryan's lawyers are going nuts because the deal was closed months ago. They don't really care whether he's innocent or guilty — they're only concerned with the bottom line, which is giving him another $250 to $350 million to make Apocalypse. There have been talks about who else he'd let direct it, with him producing, but those led to heated arguments and walk outs. They're also looking at how far back they can push production without moving the release date, if any lawsuit did get a court date. Even if Bryan doesn't direct the film, he's still going to get a major payout because the deal with them was made final months ago."

Egan filed a lawsuit against Singer in April, claiming that Singer and other men forced him to have sex with them and coerced him with alcohol and cocaine between the ages of 15 and 17. A second young man from the UK filed another lawsuit in March. Singer has called the claims "outrageous, vicious and completely false."

The source added: "Bryan's lawyers still have not been delivered the cases. It is being dragged out as long as possible because the plaintiff's now know that as soon as they do deliver the cases, they'll be dismissed. Bryan's lawyers have evidence to prove the dates don't match up on the first lawsuit and witnesses to prove Bryan's movements on the night of the Superman: Returns premiere in London."

Singer hasn't been taking any risks and is cutting ties with any friends who may not be loyal to him.

The source said: "Bryan's been scrubbing clean his circle of ‘friends,' getting rid of anyone who has said anything to the press in the past month. He feels really betrayed by the people that he's been so generous to turning on him and saying awful things, which get back to him."
