Just days after Bryan Singer was sacked from Bohemian Rhapsody, the director is now facing a lawsuit for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year boy in Washington State back in 2003. According to the legal complaint, Singer told the minor that no one would believe him if he reported the incident, and he threatened to hire people who could potentially ruin Sanchez-Guzman's reputation if he spoke out.
In 1997, a 14-year-old extra accused Singer in a lawsuit of asking him and other minors to film a nude shower scene for the film "Apt Pupil".
Cesar Sanchez-Guzman claims that he was sexually assaulted by Singer on a yacht in Seattle.
The yacht was owned by wealthy tech investor Lester Waters, as claimed in the lawsuit, and it also alleges that the party was attended by a number of young gay men. Guzman claims he pleaded with Singer to stop, but he kept going ... causing him to choke. The suit also claims that Singer allegedly told Sanchez-Guzman that he could help him break into the movie business in exchange for remaining silent about the incident.

Both Israelis and Palestinians lay claim to Jerusalem , although Israel has retained control over the city since 1967. Residents in the Gaza Strip reported that there were no casualties from the strikes, according to Reuters.
A representative for Singer did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment.
"The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan".
Reports had surfaced that Singer, 52, had been absent from the set in recent weeks, forcing production to shut down last Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The alleged victim is represented by Miami attorney Jeffrey Herman, who represented another man a 2014 lawsuit against Singer, television producer Garth Ancier and former Disney executive David Neuman. Actor Rami Malek, who stars as Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury in the film, complained to Twentieth Century Fox about Singer on behalf of the cast. Egan later withdrew his lawsuit. "Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case", the rep said.
