Bryan Singer mysteriously disappears, many believe an exposé is about to drop

The UK premiere and fan screening of 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

Bryan Singer is a well-known and well-respected director of such films as The Usual Suspects and four of the X-Men movies. He’s a major producer as well, and he’s deeply connected to the entire X-Men franchise. For years, there have also been rumors about Singer abusing young men. For the most part, the rumors are just that: gossip, whispers about his pool parties, an accusation in the 1990s that didn’t go anywhere, awkward silences in interviews, or the occasional filter-less actor mouthing off in the public sphere. There was a lawsuit once – a man named Michael Egan filed a lawsuit against Singer and two other men, accusing them of sexually abusing him when he was a minor. Nothing came of it. There was another lawsuit, filed by an unnamed British man, claiming something similar. But, as I said, the rumors persisted. It felt like the Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey situations – a lot of people knew enough about Bryan Singer, and as such, many people were waiting to see if Singer would ever get exposed in the public sphere, in this current Sex-Predatorgate 2017. Well, guess what?

Fox has halted production on the studio’s Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, due to the “unexpected unavailability” of director Bryan Singer. Rami Malek is starring as the legendary frontman Freddie Mercury in the movie that had been filming in London.

“Twentieth Century Fox Film has temporarily halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody due to the unexpected unavailability of Bryan Singer,” reads Fox’s full statement. The crew received force majeure letters today, says one insider.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Singer failed to return to set after the Thanksgiving holiday break, leaving producers nervous about the state of the production and talking about potentially replacing him. In a statement to the BBC, a rep for the director says his absence is due to “a personal health matter concerning Bryan and his family.” However, sources say that filming on the biopic has not been easy. For example, insiders tell THR that producers and his star had grown tired of Singer’s behavior, which saw him routinely show up late to set. Another source has said that a cinematographer had to step in and direct during a previous “non-showing.”

This is not first time that Singer has disappeared during a production. He momentarily vanished during the shooting of X-Men: Apocalypse and during Superman Returns. Bohemian Rhapsody is set to hit theaters on Dec. 25, 2018.

[From The Hollywood Reporter]

Bryan Singer mysteriously disappears in the middle of filming? Huh. Last month, Singer deleted his Twitter account, and some sites have noticed that some of the less-than-flattering gossip articles about Singer have been slowly scrubbed from the internet. Basically, it seems very much like Singer has known for a month or longer that he’s about to be named publicly in yet another exposé. I wonder if the exposé will come from one of the trade papers, or whether it will be the New York Times or LA Times? I can guarantee that Singer is probably already lawyered up and preparing for the worst – as he should. If even half of the rumors about Singer are true, it’s going to be absolutely awful.

    This guy…..he’s got a slew of skeletons in his closet. Hope his health is ok, it would be a shame if something happened that kept him from experiencing the full humiliation of an expose.

    • MeowuiRose says:

      I had no idea that is what he looked like! For some reason I was thinking he kinda looked like Brett Ratner. Either way, he’s a garbage person so F him!

    • mashedpotatoes1 says:

      it’s also rumored Singer got Brad Renfro addicted to heroin on the set of Apt Pupil, and that led him down the path to his death.

      That’s a recurring detail – getting young men/boys drugged up for lame excuses like ‘partying’ or ‘getting comfortable for a scene’ – or the rumor that he filmed UNDERAGE MALE EXTRAS in the shower scene during Apt Pupil, but filmed….with his own personal camera.

      I truly believe he’s been untouchable for so long because he IS part of a ring of entertainment industry ped0phile men that protect one another. One of them in particular rumored to be part of it is a billionaire with his name on MANY buildings – Geffen. With that much money, you can buy silence in many ways.

      Goddard is best buddies w/Bryan Singer. Kevin Spacey & Bryan Singer were thick as thieves…no doubt preyed together. Ancier, Huffington…

      • Holly Wouldn't says:

        Why was my comment scrubbed? I asked questions and made no allegations.

      • Aren says:

        Girl models on Instagram reported that when they were underage and just starting their career, had been called to do shootings for “big clients”, in which they were shot naked, but never saw the pics published anywhere.
        I know we’re talking about different things, but it definitely looks like there are pedophilia rings in the model and acting industry, that clearly doesn’t just consists of a handful of people.

    • aqua44 says:

      so well said. This guy is a creep of the highest proportions. I guess money kept those other accusations from going anywhere but these are different times.
      Every abuser should now get what he deserves. Are ANY of these guys going to go to jail or is rehab justice???

  2. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    The stories about this guy are shocking – have read about his parties where there are lots of drugs and under age boys.

    He really is an awful human being and HW has protected him for a long long time.

    • Parigo says:

      Yes, the rumors have been widespread and I always believed it. His pool parties were gay orgies where young men were routinely abused.

    • Purplehazeforever says:

      @digital unicorn…this is who Harvey probably targeted after he was taken down. If Singer wouldn’t help him, then he was going to bury him along with others he was protecting. Expect Rattner to go down too. Harvey has some scores to settle.

      • Starfish says:

        Totally agree with you. These stories have been around forever. Time for it all to come out.

      • isabelle says:

        Think Harvey is behind a lot of the outings but yep..Singer was his big target.

      • msd says:

        It’s highly unlikely Harvey has anything to do with this, or indeed the fall of anyone else. He is only concerned with himself, as he always has been. He’s working overtime not to get arrested and actually imprisoned right now. Also, Harvey was an outsider, a New York indie guy. Singer is LA all the way, he’s embedded in the studio system. They’re very different circles of the industry.

        Singer is not going to survive this reckoning. 100%. It’s only a matter of time. Reporters are working on this, they’re just being careful because he’s famously litigious. They don’t need to know or report everything. One or two people go on record about harassment of any kind, from even decades ago, and he’s done. That’s the climate now. We all know there’s worse but that will be enough. Singer knows this too. That’s why he’s having a nervous breakdown and going on a bender. Spacey went down after Rapp came forward, then others; Gary Goddard has gone down after Anthony Edwards came forward, then two others backed him up. Both were Singer buddies.

        Plus, word is out that he disappears from film sets. They used to hide that. He is already a liability. His publicist, Matt Bomer’s dodgy husband Simon Halls, has abandoned him. Halls did the same with Ratner, another of his scummy clients. Rats leaving a sinking ship … only Marty Singer his amoral lawyer seems to be sticking around for more $$$.

        It would be nice if everything cracked open about all the other horrible, powerful abusers he enabled but that may be too much to hope for.

    • Cintra.C says:

      Yea, I’ve heard about the stories, also. I find it disturbing that internet stories are being scrubbed. I hope he still isn’t being protected.

      • hunter says:

        Internet stories are absolutely being scrubbed. I basically watched in real-time as I read comments on a CDaN article last month – commenters were copy/pasting tweets and a Yahoo article damning Bryan Singer and within hours the tweets and article were all deleted, the only remaining version being what was copy & pasted into the CDaN comment section because the posters believed it would otherwise disappear (and it did, from Twitter and Yahoo).

      • Rosalee says:

        Watch “Open Secret” it is a devastating documentary on the boys who were drugged and sexually assaulted by a photographers, agents, producers and others. Bryan Singer is named and others are alluded..for example David Geffin is named as an investor in a online production company that recruited young boys to “star” in the productions and later party with them at a mansion..with drugs and alcohol available..and a hot tub. The documentary focus was on young men and boys..I hope they soon name names on the deplorable treatment of all young actors and actresses.

    • Nicole says:

      Yep. That’s why when Spacey was exposed I knew it was a matter of time for Singer. Esp since they apparently ran in the same “circle” and parties. The stories about him are honestly vile and stomach turning.
      I knew this was coming when he deleted his Twitter. Whatever is dropping must be the mother of all bombs. And he deserves it.

    • Just sayin says:

      Pretty sure if singer goes down a lot of Hollywoods A list would fall with him.

      • Esmerelda says:

        Let it fall. I’m already at the point where I cannot watch a Hollywood movie at the cinema anymore. I’m disgusted with the whole system. Let it end – we can find other works for our escapism.

      • Candion says:

        Agree Esmerelda. I’m done with watching movies as entertainment. Spending my few hard earned dollars elsewhere.

    • aqua44 says:

      I don’t know if HW is the one that protected him but he has a very and very very protective circle of pedophiles around him with alot of power and money.

    • Aren says:

      There are plenty of pics too. Somebody took the time to gather many photos of Singer posing with the boys. There must be almost a hundred different kids in those.

  3. Eleonor says:

    about time.

  4. GET YOUR HEAD STRAIGHT says:

    I hope he gets the treatment he deserves and nothing less, including losing his sanity.

  5. Jussie says:

    Pre-emptively running and hiding, if that is what he’s done, seems like overkill for an expose that’s not yet come out. It feels more like he’s running from the law, not just public opinion.

    The rumours about him have always insinuated that he’s not only a predator, but that he’s also a major player in a ring of similar predators. I wonder if he’s found out that’s being investigated, or that some other ‘member’ has been arrested.

    Whatever it is, I’m glad something’s finally happening with him.

    • Sixer says:

      This was my first thought, awful though it is.

    • QueenB says:

      From what I’ve read him disappearing isnt even uncommon. On first sight it seems related but if he has done that before we dont know. My first thought was: “I even believe its stress related because he must have a lot of trouble sleeping at night or everytime he surfs the net”. But he has disappeared from a lot of movie sets.

      He cant be this dense tho to not think his time isnt coming.

      • Mia4s says:

        He’s also allegedly a MAJOR drug addict which has contributed to his past “disappearances” and it would not surprise me if he’s using heavily currently.

        Also can you imagine if a female or POC director kept disappearing from the set of big budget films? Actually you can’t. Because it would happen once and they’d be blacklisted by the studios.

        Bye Bryan!

      • KBB says:

        I wondered the same thing. Maybe he’s just on a bender and there was no story putting pressure on him.

        He’d be an absolute moron if that were the case though because look at where the conversation has gone now. If there wasn’t a story in the works before, I’m guessing there is now simply because his sudden absence gives the appearance of blood in the water.

        Journalists will want to get to the bottom of it and victims may assume others are talking and they can too. They may see him as weakened and less intimidating.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I was surprised to learn his disappearing is not uncommon- and yet he keeps getting hired for major movies???

    • Liberty says:

      This. Time it all came out. Vile.

  6. Izzy says:

    GOOD. I hope his takedown is SAVAGE.

    • H says:

      Me too. He’s been the one I’m waiting for.

      • Sylvia says:

        Me three! I’ve also been anxiously awaiting Singer’s downfall, and not just because he’s a vile POS — which he is — but because I have this feeling his take down will open the can of worms that will enable the take down of many other powerful A list pedophiles, and not just in Hollywood. And that is absolutely necessary. All of this for a couple of scapegoats to take the fall then back to business as usual will be so disappointing.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Some of the boys he abused committed suicide and became drug addicts. He and the big fish he hung with when they abused young men and boys should rot in the bowels of the most bottomless pits of h.ll.

  7. Naomi says:

    It’s probably too much to hope but let this be Hollywood cleaning house, take ALL THe RUBBISH OUT.

  8. SKF says:

    About bloody time.

  9. Alexandria says:

    I wanted to catch Rami as Freddy but was hesitant. If they can get rid of him as director first, that’s a nice ending to 2017.

    • mashedpotatoes1 says:

      I thought they could replace the director too, but then an article mentioned they were two weeks away from wrapping. That means 98% of this movie is ‘a Bryan Singer film’ and they can’t undo that or unmake that even if they bring in somebody else to replace Singer. Singer has tarnished this film before it’s even seen audiences. It’s tainted permanently imo, so I cannot see it even being released, if ever.

  10. AnnaKist says:

    God. I get the need for powerful (in whatever capacity) creeps to exert their power and control over people who have far less power, but why? What is missing in their make-up that they need to treat other human beings in such a despicable manner? Why/how do they get satisfaction from humiliating and hurting others? Do they ever, even for a moment, think, “Hang on. This is wrong, in the worst possible way. I need to get help.” These stories sicken me, but I continue reading in the hope that I’ll understand better, and also as a very small way of supporting the victims. Strange, I know, but as a survivor, if I can’t bear reading their stories, what must it be like living them?

    • LAK says:

      They don’t have to be captains of industry to do this.

      Everyday life. Some people are only held back by opportunity. Gaining power makes them less inhibited because they control the situation without fear of consequences. It’s exponentially worse if they become a captain of industry, but you can be sure that they always abused people even when they had no real power.

      • Sadezilla says:

        Agreed, LAK. Power corrupts. That’s why I don’t buy the arguments on the right that this is a Hollywood thing. What do H’wood and politics have in common? Power, even if it’s the relative power of a local man having success as a lawyer as in the case of Roy Moore. For some reason, these people forget that their victims are humans and deserve respect.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Thanks, LAK. Yes, I understand perfectly, as I’ve been around b@$t@rds like this all my life, but what is missing that they need to have victims? They are cruel to animals, too – not all animals, just those that are insignificant in their life.

    • Aren says:

      Some say they’ve been victims themselves.
      But of course, not all victims become victimizers, and not all victimizers have been victims.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    Singer has been known as a predator for years, so I would love to see him get a major takedown.

  12. mtam says:

    This guy should have been in jail a long time ago, along with all the participants of those parties.

  13. QueenB says:

    With Singer I’m wondering more who he will take down with him. Harvey seemed to be a lone predator. One that was protected certainly but with Singer it seems to be a ring. If thats true we could find out who was part of that. That has the potential to be bigger than Weinstein.

    • Mia4s says:

      Interesting side note but it’s been reported his long term publicist Simon Halls is no longer representing him. That’s big. The statements from his “rep” are apparently a lawyer.

      Screw Halls either way as he was his rep for years and likely complicit in many ways, but him jumping ship is very significant. Rats flee a sinking ship.

      • KBB says:

        Simon Halls is married to Matt Bomer. I hope he wasn’t involved. But Singer didn’t just fill those parties with pedophiles, he invited prominent gay men to those things. Maybe that’s why this has been slow to develop publicly.

      • H says:

        Isn’t Simon married to Matt Bomer?

      • mashedpotatoes1 says:

        @Mia4

        LOL is he being legally repped by Marty Singer…? cause thats as obvious as it gets

      • Mia4s says:

        I think as far as Halls goes it depends what you mean by “involved”. There’s been no evidence (so far) that he was/is an abuser but he’s been Singer’s publicist for many years (and well paid I assume).

        I’m not sure who his lawyer is right now, but when accusations were made a few years ago his lawyer was…you guessed it…Marty Singer!

      • msd says:

        Simon Halls reportedly approached Singer when the Egan story was hot. He’s plenty complicit. He was also Bret Ratner’s publicist until very, very recently. I don’t care how hot his husband is, I have no time for his PR bullshit. He will clearly do anything for money and only drops scumbags when it’s bad for his own business.

    • isabelle says:

      While Harvey may have been a lone predator he knows all the dirt in Hollywood as well as the other producers. The rich protect the rich until someone is charged and they then throw each other under the bus to take attention away from their charges.

  14. Peanutbuttr says:

    James Levine, a famous conductor, was just exposed in The NY Times. I wonder if he and Singer are part of the same circle. Rumors about Levine have also been rampant in the arts world.

    • LAK says:

      One beloved English thespian was pictured at one of Bryan’s orgies and it upsets me that he is mixed up with him.

      Mind you, if you read Rupert Everett’s biography, he names people including our beloved thespian though he frames it as luvvies being luvvies to get ahead.

      • Nic919 says:

        Is this thespian in the Xmen movies?

      • OSTONE says:

        @LAK who is the beloved English thespian?!

      • LAK says:

        Nic919 / OSTONE : Yes. Magneto.

      • Alexandria says:

        Please… not someone rhyming with mirth, please???

      • QueenB says:

        I dont know any rumours but this is hinting about Gandalf.

        Wolverine and Jennifer Lawrences ex boyfriend are also in a lot of pictures with Singer but they are also part of his movies. So thats hard to tell.

        for the man rhyming with Mirth, if its Colin Firth. Working with Allen and wearing yellow face should be enough to cancel him.

      • H says:

        If it’s Sir Ian, I’m done. Done.

      • LAK says:

        QueenB: Not random cast photos.

      • Nic919 says:

        That’s who I thought you were referring to. I want to make excuses and say there probably aren’t a lot of gay parties in Hollywood but really that isn’t enough.

      • Shijel says:

        Ian McKellen, right? Datalounge especially has been on top of it since the beginning, their friendship goes way, way back.

        QueenB, yeah, Hoult has allegedly also been a beneficiary of Singer’s and his friends’ patronage, and Hugh Jackman, long rumoured to be gay (open secret at this point) has also been tight with that crew. The fact that they’re all involved in the same movies serves as an excellent cover though.

        Allegedly. Unfortunately my time in lgbt communities has taught me that the communities are very insular, most people know someone who knows someone that someone else knows, and the gossip tends to be true rather than not, and it breaks my heart that if it really is true and if this is cracked open, people WILL use it to paint us all demons over the actions of few. :(

      • Ennie says:

        there have been articles, I remember reading that Egan mentioned McKellen 2 or 3 years ago.
        some pics have already disappeared from the net. I read that when Egan or some other guy was 16, Singer took him to Hawaii, where the age of consent is 16.

      • magnoliarose says:

        The actors in Singer’s orbit if they are named I think will shock some people with some others probably not so much.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        IIRC, there has always been rumblings about beloved thespian and his lecherous behaviour – it was well known within the theatre and British film industry. Fame in HW meant it was all whitewashed.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Shijel

        You are right about the LGBT community, and I have found in that community what is an open secret is not to the rest of the world. Because the fashion world is full of so many hot male models, who get hit on constantly by every living thing that comes in contact with them and loads of gay men, the gossip flows like a waterfall. And if you go to parties or private clubs often a closeted celebrity is likely to be there.
        Some guys are bi and like to flirt with guys but have relationships with women. Some aren’t hiding, but they aren’t telling anyone either.

        I don’t think everyone who socialized with Singer is a pedophile but those in his inner circle I find hard to believe they didn’t know or were involved.

      • LAK says:

        Betti: i knew about beloved thespian in context of British theatre scene, but it seemed he was dealing with consenting adults. I remember being surprised at how blithily Rupert discussed the scene in his book like amusing anecdotes of fun times in a mis-spent youth.

        I suppose i love beloved actor so much that i refused to employ critical brain with regards the British theatre scene, but knowing the gossip around Singer, seeing those photos, i can’t dismiss it.

        Shijel: You’ve got to believe that we the lgbt community won’t be tarred as a whole. It’s horrible that it happens, but there are some of us who are allies and will always point out to the bigots how wrong they are to have this prejudice.

      • magnoliarose says:

        LAK is right Shijel.

        I don’t think the LGBT community will be blamed. Not in this climate when you have Lauer, Weinstein, Rattner, CK…and it will continue. At another time it would be a problem, but then you have Roy Moore and the politicians on top of that.
        When Kevin Spacey tried that noise, the slapback was hard and fast. No one was there for it. I don’t think the majority of reasonable people would think it had anything to do with sexual orientation.
        I understand your fears, but I don’t think there is anything to worry about these days.

        @LAK
        It is sad when people we admire prove to be less than we thought they were. So far there have not been a lot of beloved figures, but I think it will change.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        @LAK – I think with the Beloved Thespian it was a case of being VERY touchy feely and over the top. If you’ve seen him in interviews with other actors that he might fancy he is very OTT flirty and touchy with them.

        I love him as an actor too and he is someone that you would have a great night down the pub with. I guess people have 2 different sides to their personality.

  15. Brittany says:

    YES!!!!

  16. happyoften says:

    What I don’t get, is why, if this man’s behavior is an open secret, he keeps getting hired. He is high drama and an abusive predator. Why the holy hell would you want this guy anywhere near your production?

    Dude regularly drops off the planet during shooting. Oh, and in his off time, drugs and rapes adolescents. At what point do you think…. “Maybe we could go with someone else….” What does a guy have to do to become unhireable? Because if women are even *rumored* to be difficult they can’t buy a job.

    Harvey was a known quantity as well, but that guy showed the hell up and got sh*t done. Brian Singer has an established history of ducking out and still gets work. Oh, and he RAPES CHILDREN. JFC.

    Burn the whole place down.

    • Naomi says:

      People put profit and ambition over basic humanity and decency. That’s why Singer continued to be hired.

    • Bridget says:

      He is very powerful and very connected. He’s the one making the movies and doing the hiring – and is asking money people that he already knows (and are possibly participating). But that really is the question. Why is there apparently no limit to these powerful men’s bad behavior? That’s why I have zero sympathy for House Of Cards now that Spacey is out. They knew who he was and hired him anyway. This is the consequence. If they were so worried about wveryone’s jobs they shouldn’t have hired a predator.

  17. Flaming Oh says:

    Credit to CB & Kaiser for bravely reporting this over the years. Softly, softly, catchee monkey!

  18. adastraperaspera says:

    Let’s hope it’s finally time for him to face justice.

  19. Purplehazeforever says:

    I think we have to go back to Harvey’s hit list. People that he was going to lay scorched Earth to… Rattner was on the list, was Singer on it too? It implies that Hollywood has a deeper problem than we first imagined.

  20. Nic919 says:

    Kevin Spacey went to his parties with the underage kids. Time to start arresting them. They also need to look into Dan Schneider at Nickelodeon. Another child predator. And R Kelly.

    I feel bad for Rami Malek because this Freddie Mercury movie sounds interesting but I am sure they can find another director that can take over.

    • Mia4s says:

      As I understand it there are actually only two weeks left in principal photography (he’s disappeared from this movie a few times). That’s a BIG problem for the film as if they have someone come in to finish that small amount of filming, DGA rules still make it a “Bryan Singer Film”. Depending on what’s coming, that may be near impossible to sell, and forget about any awards play! The alternative is to refilm the whole thing like they did with that stupid Han Solo movie. Problem is this project definitely does not have Star Wars money to do that with. This movie is in huge trouble.

      • Boodiba says:

        Good. I’ve been a diehard Freddie / Queen fan for 4 decades. LOVE. That’s what it’s been. But from what I heard of the direction, headed by Brian May, this wasn’t going to be a decent movie anyway.

    • mashedpotatoes1 says:

      also, w/2 weeks of filming left before wrapping, even a new director coming in couldn’t take off Singer’s dirty fingerprints. It IS a Bryan Singer film – and it would be just such a huge mistake to release it. It might as well be shelved forever, cause it’s tainted forever.

      I adored Rami Malek until he signed on for this project. I thought he was one of the good ones. He HAD to have known about Singer. You just type his name into google and its like the 2nd result!!!

  21. Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

    What kind of life can you have with horrible secrets following you around like this? He must live in constant fear and anxiety of being busted. (Not remorse-fear.) I suspect he will end his own life before facing the consequences of his actions.

    • KBB says:

      He’s got pretty serious substance abuse problems, I’m guessing that’s how he sleeps at night.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’ve often wondered this, too, Myhair’s. Perhaps that’s why they live such a life of excess, with so much drug use, alcohol, sex, spending…? I want every last one of these maggots skewered and charred over glowing coals.

      (Love your name. My wonderful best friend has a huge, thick mop of curls – so much better than mine – that she sometimes doesn’t bother to comb. I’ve asked more than a few times what she keeps in there. Now I know. It’s secrets. I’ll be taking that up with her later today.)

    • Just sayin says:

      He’s had his Pr team and studios protecting him for too long.

  22. DrLucindaX says:

    He’s either on the lam or dead. The Network can not afford for Singer to get caught. He’ll bring down people even more powerful, connected, well-known and rich than he is.

    We may simply never hear from Brian Singer again. He may be buried next to Jimmy Hoffa already.

    If the lid really blows off Hollywood, entire film catalogues will disappear. Some of the most beloved movies of the 1980s and 90s were produced, directed and star pedophiles.

  23. Interesting Singer’s meltdown is coming so close to his good buddy Gary Goddard getting outed by Anthony Edwards as a child molesting ghoul.

    I think/ hope something BIG is coming and it’s about time.

    • Ac18 says:

      Yes! Anthony Edward’s article was so heartbreaking! He is so brave to come forward. I mean he is Goose from Top Gun!!! Gary Goddard denied the allegation but then another actor came forward and backed Anthony’s claim.

      • What’s even more odd is Goddard has taken his own leave of absence as of a week ago due to his own allegations. The timing of this and Singer’s absence is very strange or very telling…

  24. H says:

    You know who I feel bad for, besides Singer’s victims? His kid. He had a baby with a female friend a few years ago. The rumors stopped for a bit after that. I hope the mother blocks him from the child. There’s no way I’d let a predator near my kid if I was her.

    • Neelyo says:

      Yes!! I was about to say and he has a child! Why on earth would you ever think that was a good idea?!?

    • Sky says:

      I wonder if his had the child just to quiet down the rumors and his female friend was in on it.

      Look at Terry Richardson who had a twins with his female assistant who helped him drug and sexually assault young models. Also Guy from Girl Gone Wild who raped, sexually assaulted, and physically assaulted underage girls and he and his wife genetically selected to have a female child because he wanted to prove to the public that he’s not a predator.

      • Lady D says:

        Joe Francis from GGW had twin daughters, also.

      • Sky says:

        @Lady D

        Thanks that who I was referring to in my comment I had forgot he had twins. I just found this old quote from him which is just sickening. ( Francis chimed in, “We chose to have girls. I believe people will finally understand my love, respect and admiration for women. I love girls.”)

        Woody Allen is another one who adopted two girls.

      • msd says:

        He came out as bi, which is a joke, and claimed his female bff was now his ‘partner.’ She reportedly got paid big bucks to do it. It was a PR move to rehabilitate his image after the big scandal in 2014. So gross.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      I lost a lot of love for Michelle when she had his kid. They have been friends since college I think and I loved her on Queer as Folk. But when I read that, I nearly hurled. Poor child.

  25. Neelyo says:

    Where could he flee where he wouldn’t face extradition? Anywhere? That’s where I think he is.

    • LAK says:

      France or Brazil.

      • KBB says:

        US and Brazil have an extradition treaty. So that’s a no-go.

        US and France don’t have an extradition treaty, but they do extradite people back to the United States. They don’t extradite their own citizens, which is why they won’t extradite Polanski. He could buy some time in France, but that’s about it.

        ETA: If he were prepared, he could have obtained citizenship for a number of countries that would then deny his extradition to the US.

      • Felicia says:

        My guess would be somewhere in Asia. Laos, Cambodia or maybe Vietnam, none of which have extradition treaties with the US. Of all of those my top guess would be Cambodia. There is a LOT of child sex trafficking in some of these places and that would probably be on his “must have” list for a bolt-hole place to go if he plans to continue to lead the same sort of lifestyle.

    • Hollz says:

      Russia comes to mind, but there are plenty of others.

      • Tanguerita says:

        Russia with its strict anti-gay laws (“for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values”, no less) doesn’t seem like an option.

  26. Island_girl says:

    I didn’t hwar about the Weinstein rumors, but I have heard about the Singer rumors and he needs to go down. Thus man is trash.

    • hunter says:

      That’s a bit of a surprise if you’ve been on gossip sites for any period of time – EVERYONE knew about Harvey. I’ve been browsing internet gossip for at least 15 years and I totally knew. I also believe the reason Uma Thurman hasn’t been more specific about her anger is because she capitulated to his advances for her career (as MANY did) and doesn’t want to explicitly say so. Still makes her a victim, but it’s a shitty spot for her to be in.

      • msd says:

        I honestly didn’t hear anything about outright sexual assault and Weinstein. Bully? Yes. Sleazy? Yes. The casting couch myth hid it, because people thought casting couch meant ambitious young men and women willingly sleeping around to get ahead. I think, if we’re being honest, we’re all guilty of not seeing the reality of what was going on, of joking about it, of minimising it. How many times have we said “so and so must have slept with so and so” to get that far. People were still making sly remarks about Gretchen Mol a few weeks ago. Some people are still speculating about how certain people they got their careers, even now.

        It’s just not okay. I have done this in the past and I won’t do it now. The whole idea is based on power imbalances, coercion, harassment or assault.

      • jwoolman says:

        I didn’t know about Harvey. Really, everybody doesn’t know what you know or pay attention to all the stories everywhere or keep all the names straight. Many are selective.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        YES YES YES, msd. This needs to be posted pretty much everywhere. At least you’re willing to admit it and change your behavior so that you’re not complicit anymore. THAT’S feminist.

      • msd says:

        Thanks. Now I just need to remember to do this!

        Seriously, this scandal has taught me two important things: be wary of stories I read about people being “difficult” (Weinstein smeared Annabella Sciorra this way), and be wary of gossip about people sleeping around to get ahead (something he and Brett Ratner, rapists both, frequently boasted of).

        I hope we will just be more skeptical in general. We must always ask – who is saying this, where is the power? Harassment and abuse is commonplace. Smearing people and planting rumours when they don’t play ball is clearly commonplace too, especially for women in Hollywood.

  27. LittleWing says:

    Hope justice will finally be served to this ahole. All these revelations put earlier rumors about Jeffrey Epstein sex parties in a different light now. I believe all of it.

  28. yellow belly says:

    Singers insta is still up

    On an early November post
    bdking81Hey Bryan. I know you don’t remember me, as I was just a freshman at USA, but I’m sure you remember JJ Feick… He invited me to Brandon Boyd’s birthday, as well as Gary’s place. Just know (if you see this), I am more than happy to speak out on your behalf… Take care, sir.

    Gary Goddard being a pedophile, Brandon Boyd the lead singer of incubus, and JJ feick, a young gay man dead in 2005.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I can’t tell if that is a tell or a sincere note.

      • KBB says:

        The Brandon Boyd inclusion seems so random.

        I can’t believe he’s allowing people to comment on his Instagram. I imagine there are several taunts, so who knows what that comment means.

    • Odetta says:

      What about Brandon Boyd?

    • Jordan says:

      Is Boyd apart of this too?

    • Sylvia says:

      Brandon Boyd too? Man, the names around f’ng Singer are so heartbreaking… like, I love Hugh Jackman. And Ian McKellan. And Rami Malek. And I loved Brad Renfro, what happened to him was devastating. And I went through a huge Incubus phase as well. It’s all so… ugh. At this point I feel like just burn the whole thing down and start over from scratch. Make a new entertainment industry that isn’t founded on pedophilia and rape and harassment.

  29. Ally says:

    Also Weinstein has disappeared as well, apparently. Nonetheless a judge declared him served in one of the cases against him. Maybe he and Singer are off weeping on each others’ shoulders on a deserted island somewhere.

  30. Other Renee says:

    I just read a disturbing article: That there are those who feel that this will all blow over in Hollywood and elsewhere and that in the long run nothing will change. I find this a terrifying prospect. I also read that the rape case against Oinkstein has stalled for lack of evidence. What do you think about this?

    • KBB says:

      It will all come down to public outrage and interest. If they can get away with the status quo, they will. The only reason Harvey and the others have been taken out is because of public interest and outrage on social media. Money making industries don’t punish bad behavior unless it affects their bottom line.

    • supersoft says:

      Oinkstein is perfect, thanks for the laugh.

  31. Jordan says:

    BURN BABY BURN

  32. Christina says:

    You can run, you can hide, but the truth always finds its way to light.

  33. Greenie says:

    I was waiting for this. How can there be a true culling of the predator herd without Singer? Still pissed about Venit getting a pass after Terry Crews’ allegation, but I do not think Singer will get that same treatment. I hope he burns.

  34. Tulsi 2020 says:

    The great Freddile Mercury deserves better than to have Byran Singer connected to his biopic.

  35. Mina says:

    I don’t know if an exposé is coming or not, but there’s another issue here that I hope will start to end as well with all the wave of accusations. The studios allow way too much nonsense from their “stars” (whether it’s directors, producers or actors) on set! What the heck, how can they let a director show up late all the time and disappear from the set whenever they want? (Same with them allowing Johnny Depp coming in drunk and with someone to read him his lines and whoever else wants to waste the time of hard working people that are true professionals). It’s not like Bryan Singer is this irrepleaceable talents, there’s a hundred other directors like him out there.

  36. Willoughby says:

    Isn’t Harvey levin an enabler of singer & all if not something more?

  37. Dame-ly says:

    Slightly off topic but in case you missed it. OMG who next?

    “New York’s Metropolitan Opera said Sunday it was suspending its famed longtime music director James Levine after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct”.

  38. Gia says:

    Huge expose is hitting NYT come Monday, in a couple hours.

  39. Bishg says:

    Not to contradict Kaiser, but those about Synger were not just feeble rumors or gossip.
    I know that someone else has probably already posted on here about it, but it’s worth repeating: there’s a documentary available on YouTube that thoroughly details a few cases of abuse and pedophilia in Hollywood. Brian Synger is HEAVILY featured with other scumbags.
    It’s a nauseating, heart-wrenching story.
    Please check it out. It’s called An Open Secret.

  40. Derpy says:

    So Bryan Singer threw items at Rami Malek and that’s why he was fried

    Is the story so far

    • msd says:

      While I’m glad Singer was fired I don’t like this at all. The important story, which still hasn’t been told properly, is him abusing boys and young men and Hollywood protecting him for years.

      The focus is going to be on him apparently clashing with Malek (and you can bet Malek’s PR people will play that up as much as possible to distance their client from Singer). Argh. Singer seems to have clashed with everyone. Another actor actually walked off set altogether. His behaviour clearly got worse because he knew his time was coming.

      As for a Singer claiming he has PTSD from the set …. seriously, fuck off. That’s so insulting when he’s traumatised many others.

  41. Nic919 says:

    While the truth about Charlie Sheen has been surfacing for a few years, the comments above make me think that we are talking about someone like Spielberg or Hanks. Which would blow things out of the water.

  42. Dame-ly says:

    @Nic919 Spielberg gossip has been around for the past few years but has hit the fan recently after a recording surfaced of him and George Lucas talking about the first Indiana Jones movie and how young the female lead Marion would have been when India seduced her they wanted her to be about 12 but after a back and forth decided maybe about 15 but that was boring. So they settled on Marion saying in the script ‘I was a child’ and Indiana saying ‘You knew what you were doing’.
