In a scandal that has rocked Hollywood, Director Bryan Singer, who helmed some of the biggest blockbusters in recent history, has been accused of forcibly drugging and assaulting a teenage actor as part of a Hollywood sex ring that preyed on young, aspiring teen actors. The lurid charges are once again opening the discussion of a depraved Illuminati underworld of sexual abuse among Hollywood moguls.
As stated in court documents, Michael Egan III, the plaintiff, alleged that Singer: “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 Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries.”
According to Egan, at the age of 17, he was invited to live in the home of Marc Collins-Rector, then the head of a company called Digital Entertainment Network. He along with several other aspiring teenage male actors were permitted to live in the mansion known as the M&C Estate in Encino, California. They were even put on the payroll of Digital Entertainment Network. But soon a culture of coercion began:
“Immediately the brainwashing began,” Egan told The Daily Beast. Echoing the allegations in his complaint, Egan claimed that “they would sit me in a room and tell you that you were gay, which I wasn’t, that I had to keep the group happy. They constantly pushed you. The threats began immediately. They said that if we didn’t keep them happy, harm would come to ourselves and our families. There were threats of weapons. We were told we would be eliminated, our career chances would be destroyed. It was a living hell.” (source).
The M&C Estate is alleged to have been the location for a series of parties with Hollywood industry executives and large numbers of young male models and actors. Under threat of violence, Egan alleges being forced to take drugs, consume alcohol and was assaulted repeatedly. He alleges at one point, Collins-Rector, who owned the mansion, pulled a gun on him. (Collins-Rector would later be arrested for transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes and plead guilty to 9 counts. He is a registered sex offender and has left the country).
It was during these parties that Egan alleged he met the openly-gay Singer and the abuse by the big budget director commenced. Egan, who is heterosexual claims that he experiences years of trauma as a result of the abuse and considered suicide.
Egan’s mother, Bonnie Mound, said she tried to help her son contact police and the FBI to report the abuse 14 years ago and questioned why the information he provided did not result in criminal charges. Singer’s attorney has categorically denied all of the allegations and stated that he has proof that Singer was not in Hawaii during the time one of the alleged assaults occurred.
“It’s not about money. It’s about disarming these pedophiles who use their wealth and power to escape justice,” she said.
Singer was also sued in 1997 by a 14-year old actor, who along with two other teenage plaintiffs, alleged they were coerced to strip nude during a shower scene for Singer’s film Apt Pupil.
The question arises: why would a mother let her teenage son live with across the country in the home of a man she did not even know? This is how strong the lure of fame and untold wealth that Hollywood offers can be.
A Documentary Also Accuses Singer?
Amy Berg a documentary director who gained acclaim for her film “Deliver Us From Evil” which exposed the pedophilia scandals in the Catholic Church, stated that she has been working on a similar documentary about abuse in Hollywood. She also confirmed that Singer is one of the Hollywood figures named in the film.
More Executives Named
Hollywood executives Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard have also been accused of sexually abusing teenage boys in new lawsuits filed by Egan. Ancier is the former president of BBC Worldwide America and also served as head of programming for Fox, NBC and the WB. He’s also the head of year-old Quad Media Partners, formed to launch four fully curated linear TV networks.
Neuman, the former president of Disney TV, previously worked for Digital Entertainment Network, which was headed by Marc Collins-Rector, who was cited as being involved in the sexual activity at the heart of Egan’s original lawsuit against director Bryan Singer.
Goddard heads a design firm in Los Angeles that has created theme park attractions for Universal Studios. He also heads The Goddard Group, which has produced live shows on and off Broadway. Egan alleges all three were also a part of the illicit sex ring and abused him. Radaronline has also discovered that according to documents filed with the SEC, all four men were investors in sex offender Collins-Rector’s Digital Entertainment Network in 2000, which was during the time the alleged assaults took place.
These allegations line up with the statements made by 1980’s child superstar Corey Feldman who in a very candid interview on ABC news, stated that “pedophilia is the number one problem in Hollywood” and relayed his own stories of being allegedly abused in the same manner as Egan. Feldman at that time promised to release the names of the Hollywood executives who allegedly abused him but instead released an autobiography with ficticious names of the perpetrators.
The Bible is clear about the corruption of children. Jesus Christ said: “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Matthew 18:6). These allegations involve sinful rebellion of the worst kind and also expose the “deals” families will make for hopes of fame and fortune.
Pray for facts surround these allegations to come to light, whatever they may be. And for parents, whether their children are aspiring actors or just home in front of the television set, to use Godly wisdom when it comes to trusting Hollywood.
