And the list keeps growing.
In case you haven’t been following along, X-Men director Bryan Singer and friend Gary Goddard have both been named in previous suits, alleging that they sexually abused underage teens.
Well, things just got worse for them.
A UK citizen, who remains anonymous, alleges that Goddard was involved with him from age 14 to 17, and every year things escalated until one TERRIBLE night when he was 17.
Things started in 2003, when Goddard contacted the 14-year-old on social media, then at 15 they had clothesless webchats. Eventually they met and would just lay in bed, in the nude, until the teen turned 16, and they had sex.
However, at 17 years old, the teen was at a Superman afterparty when Goddard tried to force himself on the young man, and brought in a “large, musclebound man” who beat the kid up. Singer was also there, and allegedly tried to rape the teen while Goddard sat by, naked on the bed.
All of the suits against Singer have come from the same lawyer, and this one is no different.
Both Singer and Goddard’s lawyers are vehemently denying these claims and insist that their clients are innocent. In fact, you can read the entire statement from Goddard's side (below):
"It is a sad indictment on society that when once spurious claims making false, serious and highly damaging allegations have been made - especially where compensation is sought - that other similar claims may follow.
The allegations made against Mr Goddard are vehemently denied and will be vigorously defended at any trial of these matters and Mr Goddard is entirely confident that he will be fully vindicated."
We can’t imagine all of these men making these claims up, but it’s also hard to believe there are people that evil in the world.
