LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Director Bryan Singer is expected to settle with a rape accuser for $150,000, according to court documents.
Singer has apparently settled a lawsuit brought by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who filed the claim in 2017 that Singer forced the then-17-year-old to perform oral sex on Singer then raped Guzman during a yacht party in Seattle.
A bankruptcy trustee urged the court to approve the $150,000 settlement with singer, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. The accuser had filed for bankruptcy to a judge has to sign off on the settlement.
Singer attorney Andrew Brettler says his client maintains his innocence.
“Mr. Singer has denied even knowing this individual, let alone allegedly having interacted with him more than 15 years ago,” Brettler said. “The decision to resolve the matter with the bankruptcy trustee was purely a business one, as litigation costs would well exceed the amount requested by the trustee to pay off the creditors who were owed money when the debtor filed for bankruptcy.”
Singer has been accused of raping multiple boys.
Singer was the original director for “Bohemian Rhapsody” but was accused of being absent on the set. There have also been accusations that he was absent during the filming of two “X-Men” movies, which a representative has denied.
