LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The attorney for the man accusing “X-Men” director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him as a teenager filed a lawsuit Monday naming three additional Hollywood executives allegedly a part of a sex ring.
Jeff Herman, a nationally recognized advocate for victims of sexual abuse, filed the lawsuits on behalf of Micheal Egan III against Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard, Herman announced at a 2 p.m. news conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
