On Monday, Michael Egan, the man who claims that X-Men director Bryan Singer sexually abused him repeatedly at Hollywood parties, named three more men he claims abused him. All three are respected executives and two of them have already said that the claims are false.
As previously reported, the other three men Egan has filed lawsuits against are TV executive Garth Ancier, Broadway producer Gary Goddard and former Disney TV president David Neuman. Ancier and Neumann have both denied the claims, with Ancier’s lawyer saying that he had never even gone to the Hawaii estate where Egan claims to have met him.
“All of the allegations made by [Michael Egan] against Garth Ancier are demonstrably untrue, and we are confident the courts will agree when the evidence is presented,” Ancier’s attorney told TMZ.
Neuman told TMZ in a statement that the allegations are “completely false,” adding that it is “sickening, and very evil, for anyone to lie like that, let alone in a legal document.”
All three men Egan has accused are respected in the entertainment industry. TheWrap notes that Ancier has had a prolific TV career, helping produce shows like The Cosby Show and Cheers and developed Home Improvement. Goddard founded The Goddard Group, which has produced shows on and off Broadway, including the 2009 Hair revival.
Neuman has been an executive with Disney, NBC, CNN and Current Media. He is currently the President and Executive Producer of Blackrock Productions.
