Bryan Singer’s Attorney Planning Countersuit, Says Abuse Claims Are ‘Completely Fabricated’

Bryan Singer’s attorney on Thursday issued a blistering response to a press conference in which a 31-year-old man accused the director of sexually assaulting him when he was a teenager.

Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, said in a statement that they plan to bring “a claim for malicious prosecution against Mr. Egan and his attorney after we prevail.”

“The claims made today about Bryan Singer are completely fabricated,” Marty Singer said.

Michael Egan appeared at a press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel along with his attorney, Jeff Herman.

“It is obvious that plaintiff’s attorney is not looking to litigate the case on the merits,” Marty Singer said in a statement. “This matter is nothing more than the attorney seeking to get his 15 minutes of fame by sending out a press release with his ‘media consultant’ yesterday following up with a press conference today. Attorneys who try cases don’t hold press conferences.”
