Bryan Singer is back in the spotlight as a new man accuses him of sexual assault while he was a young teenager. Justin Smith alleges that Singer penetrated his anus with a finger at a party they both attended in Hollywood.

Singer has previously been accused of sexually assaulting teenagers. In 1997 he was accused of asking a 14-year-old and other minors to film a nude scene in Apt Pupil; a lawsuit over the incident was dismissed for lack of evidence. Two other accusations that Singer assaulted other young men were also dismissed.

In a since deleted series of tweets, Smith lays out a story of Singer’s behavior around Hollywood and his specific experiences with the famous producer and director. Smith’s allegations follow similar statements from Real O’Neals star Noah Galvin who said Singer “likes to invite little boys over to his pool and diddle them in the fucking dark of night.”

Other Hollywood personalities and insiders have also described Singer’s pool parties as hotbeds of promiscuity, drugs, and alcohol with his “harem” of young men in their late teens and early 20s.

Smith’s tweets have now been deleted, but you can read the thread below. Singer has not responded to the allegations.

I first met #BryanSinger in 2000. My boyfriend was one of his best friends, so I had many interactions with him. From the first time I met him, he was always on something. He also constantly hit on me, always asking me to show him my dick or ass. (1/14)

When I’d tell my boyfriend about this, he’d say “oh Bryan just gets playful when he’s high”. But we stopped dropping by his house at my insistence.
We’d still bump into him at parties. He almost always had a “posse”. (2/14)

This was always him, 2-3 older 50-70 year old men who were obviously on drugs but still wearing their dress shirts & pants (he introduced them as producers) and at least 5 to sometimes 10 young men. I should really say boys, none of them could’ve been older than 16 or 17. (3/14)

They were all aspiring models/actors who were always doped up & partially naked. Bryan always made a point to tell me they were going to his place for a “private party” & asked me to come with them. I said no every time. (4/14)

This same scenario happened 5 times. Every time, the cast was different. Different gross old “producers”, different harem of boys. But every time, Bryan tried to convince me to join, offering me drugs, even offering me a bit part in X Men 2. (5/14)

One night, I asked him who these old men were, & he said “they have a lot of money”. I then asked who all these young guys were & he said, “does it matter?” & laughed.
And I laughed back.
Yes, I hate myself for it.
I don’t really have an excuse. (6/14)

This same situation had played out so many times, & even though I knew what was happening was awful, I think part of me had resigned myself to the fact that this was Hollywood. Speaking out about this was unimaginable then. (7/14)

That same night, in response to all my questions, Bryan again asked to see my dick. I said no. He then asked to feel my ass. After hesitating, I relented, thinking he’d give it a quick squeeze. Nope. (8/14)

He quickly & very aggressively shoved his hand down my jeans & underwear and tried to shove his finger inside me. He had his other hand clamped on my shoulder so I couldn’t immediately move away. He penetrated me for a split second before I shoved him away (9/14)

I said no, that I just wanted to go home. He said fine, but I’d better not tell anyone because no one would believe me anyway.
I absolutely believed this, so I never said anything until now.

I never went to any of Bryan Singers “private parties”, but I guarantee the stories of the young men who say they were raped are true. I witnessed the beginning of many of these nights. I wish I would’ve loudly objected to what I saw happening. (12/14)

I also wish I would’ve had the courage to speak out when he sexually assaulted me. It didn’t benefit me at all to stay silent, all it did was allow myself to become disillusioned & bitter. I hope telling this story helps. Not just me, but anyone else who’s struggling. (13/14)
