The latest alleged atrocities involve "X-Men" director Bryan Singer and at least three other power players in the business: veteran television executive Garth Ancier, former Disney executive David Neuman and producer Gary Goddard. Last month, former child actor and model Michael Egan filed civil suits against the men, alleging that they passed around underage boys "like pieces of meat at sex parties" in the late 1990s. Egan's X-rated lawsuit exposes a cabal of alleged predators who plied young boys and teens with hard drugs and alcohol before sexually assaulting them.
Egan was repeatedly molested, raped and beaten from the age of 15, he says, at an infamous gay sex mansion in southern California. The mansion was owned by another of Egan's alleged abusers: scumbag Internet video mogul Marc Collins-Rector. He's a registered sex offender who lured young boys online, drugged and raped them, and reportedly threatened them with a gun if they did not submit.
Collins-Rector was convicted in 2004 of transporting five underage boys across state lines with the intent of raping them. He was allowed to leave the U.S. in 2006 by claiming a "brain tumor," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The (U.K.) Sun reported in 2007 that he was "swanning around Britain in a chauffeur-driven limo and surrounding himself with young boys." He can no longer be located, despite supposedly being under police "supervision."
Egan's mother reported the abuse to the FBI and Los Angeles Police Department back in 2000, the family's lawyer, Jeff Herman, says. Nothing was done.
Singer's lawyer calls Egan's suit "absurd" and "defamatory." But the allegations just keep piling up. Singer is now the subject of another lawsuit filed this week by a young British man who alleges Singer's producer pal Gary Goddard groomed him online from the age of 14, raped him at 16 and shared him with Singer after the London premiere of Singer's movie "Superman Returns" in 2006. Internet photos have been circulating for years showing Singer with a parade of young boys and men draped around him.
Egan's claims are especially chilling in light of similarly lurid allegations made 17 years ago on the set of Singer's movie "Apt Pupil." Three underage boys—ages 14, 16 and 17—filed suit claiming Singer and his crew forced them to take off peach-colored G-strings and strip naked in a shower scene for the movie. Authorities investigated. The suit was dismissed. Nothing was done.
"Everyone's ducking for cover," Paul Petersen, a former child actor and child actors' advocate, told Entertainment Weekly in 1997. "It's a complete and total breakdown of the protections Hollywood pretends it accords children."
The same industry that sanctimoniously convenes anti-bullying summits with the Obama White House and falsely accuses conservatives of waging a "war on women" has allowed countless children to be stalked, groomed, beaten, molested and raped on casting couches, in movie trailers, and at drug- and alcohol-drenched parties by Tinseltown predators. The alleged child rape scandal exposed by Egan does not exist in a vacuum:
