Disney director Bryan singer has been accused of sexually abusing and raping multiple children.
The report was published by The Atlantic and the outlet said it was based in 50 different sources, including the four men, who would not identify themselves for fear of repercussion.
In a statement provided to Fox News, Singer denounced the report as a ‘homophobic smear piece.”
One of the new accusers claimed Singer fondled him on a movie set when he was just 13 in 1997. Another claimed he was 17 when Singer had sex with him at a party at his house, while a third man alleged Singer had sex with him when he was just 15.
A fourth man said he had sex with Singer when he was 16 after meeting the director at a series of parties the man claimed were designed to link underage boys with older homosexual men.
All of the victims noted that Singer was aware of their ages at the time and was himself in his 30’s.
This is not the first time that Singer has been accused of sexual misconduct with underage boys.
In 2014, an aspiring model and actor named Michael Egan filed a civil suit against the director claiming Singer forced him to have sex during parties in California and Hawaii in the 1990’s.
Although Singer denied the allegations and the lawsuit was eventually dropped, more men started to come forward with allegations against Singer.
The Atlantic allegations come as the “X-Men” director’s work is being called into question after he was fired from the hit film “Bohemian Rhapsody” with just weeks left on production.
His name remains in the film’s credits as the principal director due to the Directors Guild of America rules.
In a recent interview, the star of the Oscar-nominated film, Rami Malek, said that he was so engrossed with getting into character as Queen front-man Freddie Mercury that he was never even aware of the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against Singer.
