In a shocking new development in the “every man in Hollywood is a creep” narrative of 2017, a lawsuit has been filed against X-Men director Bryan Singer for allegedly raping a 17-year-old boy on a yacht and then threatening him into silence.

In the lawsuit, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman alleges that the director offered to give him a tour of his yacht at a boat party near Seattle in 2003. Once he was on board, Singer cornered him in a room and allegedly forced the teen to perform oral sex before raping him, according to the text of the lawsuit, which was filed in Washington state court.

Additionally, the lawsuit claims that the yacht was owned by wealthy tech investor Lester Waters, and that the party was attended by many young gay men. After being raped, Sanchez-Guzman claims that Singer threatened to ruin his reputation if he told anyone.

Sanchez-Guzman is asking for damages related to experiencing "severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life."
