“X-Men” director Bryan Singer is under investigation for allegedly sexually assaulting a man in his 20s in New York City last year, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
“The complaint was filed with the NYPD on May 9, 2014, after Singer allegedly forced the man into a sexual act against his will on March 23, 2013, according to sources,” the story reports.
The report adds: “No charges had been filed against Singer as of Friday, but an investigation into the claim is ongoing, law enforcement sources said.”
The allegations come after two civil lawsuits that alleged Singer had sexually abused teenage boys were recently dropped.
“An unnamed British man, known only as ‘John Doe 117,’ claimed in May that the filmmaker drugged and sexually assaulted him in a London hotel room when he was a teen, TMZ reported. The man withdrew the case on July 25,” the Post reports.
The article adds: “In April, now 31-year-old Michael Egan accused Singer of sexually abusing him during trips to Hawaii when he was 17. He dropped the case … after reportedly being unable to find a lawyer who would represent him, according to the Associated Press.”
Singer has also worked on TV projects including “Mockingbird Lane” and “Dirty Sexy Money.”
