From a news source: Before It's News, dated Tuesday, May 6, 2014

below, Michael Egan, age 17, plaintiff in suit against Bryan Singer

According to plaintiff Michael Egan, who was an aspiring actor and model, the abuse started in 1998 when he was lured to the M & C Estate, a California mansion known for its “notorious” parties. In these sex-and-drugs parties, adult males preyed on young boys who were lured in with promises of making it in show-business. Singer reportedly told Egan at one such party that:

“the adults who resided in or frequented the M & C Estate controlled Hollywood and could decide whether Plaintiff’s career aspirations and hopes would be realized”.

We were told we would be eliminated, our career chances would be destroyed. It was a living hell.”

At the house, it was drugs put in drinks. Liquor poured down my throat. Rules in the house: No swimsuits, no clothes out by the pool area. I was raped numerous times in that house. Various types of sexual abuse. You were like a piece of meat to these people. They’d pass you around between them.… If I could define what that house was, it’s evil.”

Michael Egan tells of abuse in The Daily Beast

(This is a continuation of the previous post on Michael Egan vs. Bryan Singer, but explores the story in a different publication, The Daily Beast.)

Michael Egan III, the 31-year-old man accusing X-Men director Bryan Singer of sexually abusing him as a teenager, says he considered committing suicide as he struggled to come to terms with what he alleges happened to him.

Egan was speaking as his lawyer, Jeff Herman, launched a civil case against Singer alleging in court documents that the 48-year-old director “manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in the plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries.”


Originally Posted By: The Daily Beast

The civil suit goes into explicit detail about what Egan claims he allegedly suffered at Singer’s hands, including anal rape and forced oral sex. According to the suit, if Egan refused any of Singer’s demands, Egan claimed that Singer said he would tell Collins-Rector, who Egan was terrified would carry out his threats to harm him and/or his family. In his suit, Egan claims Singer told him “This group,” meaning the men at the Encino house, “controlled” Hollywood.


Originally Posted By: Marty Singer through his counsel

In a statement, Marty Singer, Bryan Singer’s lawyer, said: “The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit.


Originally Posted By: Herman (Egar's lawyer)

Herman said, and since then his investigative team has been “carrying out due diligence in half a dozen states,” interviewing witnesses and looking through documents. Egan’s other abusers would be named as defendants in another lawsuit in the next few days, Herman told The Daily Beast.


Originally Posted By: Michael Egan in Daily Beast

Egan said his mother had reported the alleged incidents to the Los Angeles Police Department in 1999, but “it basically fell on deaf ears.”

There had to have been others besides Egan. I think it's sad no one else came forward to back him up and collaborate his illegations. It is sad. I think it is wrong. Michael needs their help and support more than ever. I will never see a Bryan Singer movie again.

Notice that this topic was not picked up by major newspapers or broadcasting networks. Does this strike anybody as strange?

Others are mentioned in the post on the two Coreys. Corey Feldman's book is reviewed here:

As a follow up to the Bryan Singer case, we have another survivor who can't find justice in the legal system. I feel for Michael Egan. If anyone wonders why so few survivors every report their abuse, it's because of outcomes like this one:
