Bryan Singer, the director best known for the X-Men series of films, is being sued over an allegation that he raped 17-year-old boy during a party 14 years ago.
Singer has denied the accusation.
In a complaint filed in Superior Court of the State of Washington for King County on Thursday, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman says he met Singer in 2003 at a party aboard a yacht owned by technology investor Lester Waters, who the complaint says "frequently hosted parties for young gay males in the Seattle area."
Sanchez-Guzman alleges that Singer, while giving him a tour of the yacht, lured him into the master stateroom, shut the door and demanded oral sex.
When Sanchez-Guzman refused, "Singer forced him into acts of oral and anal sex," according to the complaint. Sanchez-Guzman says he repeatedly pleaded for Singer to stop.
