Bryan Singer’s Accuser Names Three More Alleged Sex Abusers

Hollywood executives Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard have been accused of sexually abusing teenage boys in lawsuits filed Monday in Hawaii federal court.

“I would not wish on my worst enemies what I went through,” declared plaintiff Michael Egan at a Monday news conference at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

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.

Alan Grodin, an attorney for Goddard and a partner at Weintraub Tobin Chediak Coleman Grodin, issued a statement: “Gary Goddard is out of the country and we have not seen the complaint.  Based on what we have heard, the allegations are without merit.  Once we have seen the complaint we will respond appropriately.”

Ancier did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

As with the suit against Singer, Egan made four claims against each of the three execs — intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion. Each of the suits recounted in explicit detail the sexual acts that took allegedly place between Egan and each of the men in Hawaii in 1999.

“Somebody has to stand up to these people,” said the 31-year-old Egan.

The suits are also seeking at least $300,000 in damages and attorney’s fees.

The filings were unveiled at a news conference Monday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills by attorney Jeff Herman, Egan and his mother.

“It’s not about money, it’s about disarming these powerful pedophiles,” the alleged victim’s mother, Bonnie Mound, told reporters through tears.

The new lawsuits were filed five days after “X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Singer was accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy in 1999 in a suit filed in the same court, alleging Collins-Rector had lured him into the sex ring with promises of auditions for work as an actor and model. Egan claims he was 15 years old when Singer forcibly sodomized him, among other allegations.

Bryan Singer’s attorney, Marty Singer, has called the lawsuit “absurd and defamatory” and has promised that he will file a countersuit.

Herman is a sexual abuse attorney based in Boca Raton, Fla., who also represented the plaintiffs accusing Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of sexual abuse. The three Clash cases were thrown out last July because the claims were made more than six years after each man reasonably should have become aware of Clash’s alleged violations and over three years after each turned 18.

Herman had said last week that he expected to file additional cases against alleged perpetrators by April 24 in Hawaii. That is the cutoff date for old sex abuse cases to be filed under a two-year window established by the state legislature, which temporarily suspends the statute of limitations in civil sex abuse cases.

Singer’s attorney claims the filmmaker has documents to prove that in late 1999 he was not Hawaii but in Toronto, shooting the first “X-Men” movie, which would disprove Egan’s account of sexual abuse.

“We want to see those documents,” Herman said in response on Monday, adding that he has witnesses to prove that Singer was in Hawaii at the time of the alleged incidents.

Herman said Monday that Egan met with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Los Angeles Police Dept. in 2000. He also said the FBI was made aware of the names of all four defendants at that point.

Mound also expressed frustration that letters she wrote to FBI agents in 1999 and 2000 and information that her son provided in interviews with an agent did not result in criminal charges.

The FBI has said it could not discuss specifically what Egan told them but denied in a statement last week that it had ignored the case.

“However, the suggestion that the FBI ignored evidence involving the sexual victimization of a child is ludicrous,” spokeswoman Laura Eilmiller said. “The FBI vigorously pursues all allegations involving the sexual abuse of minors and pursues prosecution when evidence of such crimes is brought to its attention.”

Additionally, Herman said that he has heard from “dozens” of other victims since he filed the Singer last week, adding, “I’m going to continue to file cases to expose these predators.”

Sources recently confirmed to Variety that Oscar-nominee Amy Berg has spent the last two years working on a new documentary about sex abuse in Hollywood that includes allegations about Bryan Singer. Michael Egan has been cooperating with Berg on her documentary.

Marty Singer has asserted that the lawsuit against Bryan Singer is an attempt to get publicity with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” opening May 23. Bryan Singer has canceled two major appearances in support of the upcoming tentpole, skipping last weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim and the upcoming Creativity Conference in Washington.

Each of the suits also names Collins-Rector although he is not named as a defendant. Herman said Monday that Collins-Rector was the “ringleader” in initiating the sexual abuse of Egan at a house in Encino, known for “notorious parties” where underage male teenagers would be intoxicated and sexually assaulted.

Collins-Rector is a registered sex offender, having pleaded guilty in 2004 to luring minors across state lines for sexual acts.

Herman also said Ancier, Goddard, Neuman and Singer were all members of a “sex ring,” adding that the group was one of several operating in Hollwood to take advantage of people’s desire to get into the entertainment business.

“I think this is a watershed moment for Hollywood,” Herman declared.

Asked at the news conference what he would say to the defendants, Egan responded, “You can’t have another chance to hurt another victim.”

    In my opinion, Mr. Egan is a hypocryte needing fast money from successful ppl. Ok, I do not know what is the legal age of consent in HW, but come on! He was 17 and probably knew exactly what he was doing, either for money or a chance in the industry. Now after 14 years, he is broke and found other ways of getting easy money.

  2. big daddy D says:

    Someone mentioned Joel Schumacher before. Isnt that the same “I ruined the Batman franchise..nipples on the uniform..thank God for Christopher Nolan’s redemption Schumacher? No homoerotic behavior in those excretable pieces of garbage movies! I may be having a change of heart here.

  3. Ryan says:

    Egan seems to be telling the truth. Stories have circulated HW for years about these crimes. Law enforcement needs to get organized and file criminal charges and not chicken out due to lack of evidence. Hold a trial and let a jury decide. Crimes like these ruin lives and maybe there would be less of them if people are held accountable.

  4. k1 says:

    This looks very similar to what is happening in England and the massive coverups involving jimmy savile and pdoflia in the highest levels of UK government. It continues on to Rome where the pope was forced to step down because pdoflia is running rampant there as well. The pope was convicted in Brussels court, but can’t be arrested on vatican grounds where he remains and still calls the shots as pope. USA news is silent about this.

  5. David Powell says:

    If there is truth to this story other people are out there. Like the Catholic Church and Sandusky scandals, there won’t be just one person who was abused. That is going to be something to watch for as this whole situation develops. The thing is, in any system, there is the potential for an “old boys’ club” type system to develop and end up covering for some really bad stuff. Sadly it is a downside that must be guarded against in any organization. Again, as the publicity gets out there we will see if anyone else comes forward, and what evidence comes up. Though it has fit a sad pattern, at least so far.

  6. Alex says:

    So if Singer can prove he wasn’t even in the same country when Egan said he was have sex with him…then what? Is the press checking into this or what?

  7. J Rogowski says:

    And these folks want to tell us how to vote!

  8. mark2345345 says:

    This story is no surprise at all. Ephebophilia and hebephilia are very common amongst men who have the disorder of homophilia.

  9. Jeffro1969 says:

    It was just awful – sodomized and then didn’t get the part he wanted.

  10. Shayla Credence says:

    Egan is Spring cleaning-good on him-it’s no secret HW is a cesspool of perversion and filth-just look at their fruit-what they produce. The images on the screen are coming from dark like-minded individuals. Steady stream of sex, horrific gore and violence, often all in one scene.

    • big daddy D says:

      Cheers and moonlighting, I’ll give you those. Great shows that started some great movie careers. Northern Exposure. ..mehhh…didn’t feel it. Andy Griffith though? Come on, man!! That show was relevant to anyone around to watch that drivel in the 60s. I thought it was a terrible show.

  11. big daddy D says:

    @Scott Cramer-sorry, you’ll have to elaborate. I’ve been railing on idiots all day.

  12. ENI says:

    If this guy is telling the truth, there is no doubt in my mind that there are big name Hollywood stars who are well aware that it has been going on, and are covering for the molesters.

  13. Chris says:

    I wonder how many former Disney employees are named defendents in lawsuits alleging child molestation.

  14. If the victim was a teenager, then it wasn’t pedophilia; it’s homosexual rape.

    Someone needs to rethink their propaganda.

    • allentown says:

      It’s called pedastry.

    • d1m1tr1 says:

      each state is different for the age of consenting sexual relations with an adult..my state the person must be at least 16yo to have sex with an adult. otherwise it is statutory rape even if consent is given. states may vary on homosexual sex, which may be considered sodomy, even between 2 adults and is a prosecutable offense.

    • Jane S. says:

      There’s a classification called hebephilia, which is an attraction to kids 11-14.

  15. big daddy D says:

    All I will say is…if Singer is guilty..fry him. If he’s innocent.. Leave him alone. The pics of him with the twinks does bother me, though. But this is only a civil case..

  16. Well said, Tony and wesley.

  17. big daddy D says:

    Well..the guy that played Pyro..I’m not surprised he was also involved in a diddling case.

  18. Carlos says:

    Michael Egan is my hero! He’s so brave!

  19. lola says:

    I really hope investigations get to the bottom fo this, I found more about the mom Bonnie here http://dailyentertainmentnews.com/movies/bonnie-mound-michael-mounds-mother/, it all sounds really unfortunate but not so crazy not to be true

    • But… what if these men were BORN that way?

      • J Rogowski says:

        An underaged boy or girl for that fact is unable to give legal consent to the predators preying on them. It doesn’t matter if they wanted it or not. They cannot give consent.

      • ENI says:

        They WERE born that way. Just because you are born a certain way, it does not mean you should or are required to act upon your perverted desires.

      • Chris says:

        I mean, couldn’t pedophilia really be considered just another form of love between a man and a boy? Didnt the NAMBLers issue a proclamation on this activity?

      • big daddy D says:

        I never claimed to be superior..I never hated on anyone either..I never called anyone faggot..I never demeaned or disrespected anyone…other than the homophobic people..and the clearly racist ass clown Libs R.

  26. Cynical Observer says:

    When I first read this plaintiff’s story, I wondered if the “statute of limitations” had already run out on the plaintiff’s claims. However, then I remembered that the California Legislature had amended the statute of limitations in light of all of the “priest child abuse cases” we’ve seen in LA County over the last 23 years. If the childhood sexual abuse occurred in California, California law applies regardless of whether the plaintiff’s lawyer decides to file the case in a Federal court in another state, in effect forum shopping. So I looked up the “new” statute of limitations for civil lawsuits arising out of child sexual abuse which occur in California. It’s especially interesting that the plaintiff’s lawyer has to file a “Certificate of Merit” as described in the law, confirming that the lawyer has investigated and that there is evidence of the childhood sexual abuse. That investigation has to include the opinion of a mental health professional, and the penalties against the lawyer and mental health professional are pretty severe if the judge dismisses the case. California’s law is worth reading for anyone who cares about this issue or who cares about the defendants, because it will give the reader a sense of whether the plaintiff realistically has any hope of winning the case.

    “California Code of Civil Procedure 340.1.

    (a) In an action for recovery of damages suffered as a result of childhood sexual abuse, the time for commencement of the action shall be within eight years of the date the plaintiff attains the age of majority or within three years of the date the plaintiff discovers or reasonably should have discovered that psychological injury or illness occurring after the age of majority was caused by the sexual abuse, whichever period expires later, for any of the following actions:

    (1) An action against any person for committing an act of childhood sexual abuse.

    (2) An action for liability against any person or entity who owed a duty of care to the plaintiff, where a wrongful or negligent act by that person or entity was a legal cause of the childhood sexual abuse which resulted in the injury to the plaintiff.

    (3) An action for liability against any person or entity where an intentional act by that person or entity was a legal cause of the childhood sexual abuse which resulted in the injury to the plaintiff.

    (b) (1) No action described in paragraph (2) or (3) of subdivision (a) may be commenced on or after the plaintiff’s 26th birthday.

    (2) This subdivision does not apply if the person or entity knew or had reason to know, or was otherwise on notice, of any unlawful sexual conduct by an employee, volunteer, representative, or agent, and failed to take reasonable steps, and to implement reasonable safeguards, to avoid acts of unlawful sexual conduct in the future by that person, including, but not limited to, preventing or avoiding
    placement of that person in a function or environment in which contact with children is an inherent part of that function or environment. For purposes of this subdivision, providing or requiring counseling is not sufficient, in and of itself, to constitute a reasonable step or reasonable safeguard.

    (e) “Childhood sexual abuse” as used in this section includes any act committed against the plaintiff that occurred when the plaintiff was under the age of 18 years and that would have been proscribed by
    Section 266j of the Penal Code; Section 285 of the Penal Code; paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (b), or of subdivision (c), of Section 286 of the Penal Code; subdivision (a) or (b) of Section 288
    of the Penal Code; paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (b), or of subdivision (c), of Section 288a of the Penal Code; subdivision (h), (i), or (j) of Section 289 of the Penal Code; Section 647.6 of the Penal Code; or any prior laws of this state of similar effect at the time the act was committed. Nothing in this subdivision limits the availability of causes of action permitted under subdivision (a), including causes of action against persons or entities other than the alleged perpetrator of the abuse.

    (f) Nothing in this section shall be construed to alter the otherwise applicable burden of proof, as defined in Section 115 of the Evidence Code, that a plaintiff has in a civil action subject to this section.

    (g) Every plaintiff 26 years of age or older at the time the action is filed shall file certificates of merit as specified in subdivision (h).

    (h) Certificates of merit shall be executed by the attorney for the plaintiff and by a licensed mental health practitioner selected by the plaintiff declaring, respectively, as follows, setting forth the facts which support the declaration:

    (1) That the attorney has reviewed the facts of the case, that the attorney has consulted with at least one mental health practitioner who is licensed to practice and practices in this state and who the
    attorney reasonably believes is knowledgeable of the relevant facts and issues involved in the particular action, and that the attorney has concluded on the basis of that review and consultation that there is reasonable and meritorious cause for the filing of the action. The person consulted may not be a party to the litigation.

    (2) That the mental health practitioner consulted is licensed to practice and practices in this state and is not a party to the action, that the practitioner is not treating and has not treated the plaintiff, and that the practitioner has interviewed the plaintiff and is knowledgeable of the relevant facts and issues involved in the particular action, and has concluded, on the basis of his or her knowledge of the facts and issues, that in his or her professional opinion there is a reasonable basis to believe that the plaintiff had been subject to childhood sexual abuse.

    (3) That the attorney was unable to obtain the consultation required by paragraph (1) because a statute of limitations would impair the action and that the certificates required by paragraphs (1) and (2) could not be obtained before the impairment of the action. If a certificate is executed pursuant to this paragraph, the certificates required by paragraphs (1) and (2) shall be filed within 60 days after filing the complaint.

    (i) Where certificates are required pursuant to subdivision (g), the attorney for the plaintiff shall execute a separate certificate of merit for each defendant named in the complaint.

    (j) In any action subject to subdivision (g), no defendant may be served, and the duty to serve a defendant with process does not attach, until the court has reviewed the certificates of merit filed
    pursuant to subdivision (h) with respect to that defendant, and has found, in camera, based solely on those certificates of merit, that there is reasonable and meritorious cause for the filing of the
    action against that defendant. At that time, the duty to serve that defendant with process shall attach.

    (k) A violation of this section may constitute unprofessional conduct and may be the grounds for discipline against the attorney.

    (l) The failure to file certificates in accordance with this section shall be grounds for a demurrer [dismissal] pursuant to Section 430.10 or a motion to strike pursuant to Section 435.

    (m) In any action subject to subdivision (g), no defendant may be named except by “Doe” designation in any pleadings or papers filed in the action until there has been a showing of corroborative fact as
    to the charging allegations against that defendant.

    (n) At any time after the action is filed, the plaintiff may apply to the court for permission to amend the complaint to substitute the name of the defendant or defendants for the fictitious designation, as follows:

    (1) The application shall be accompanied by a certificate of corroborative fact executed by the attorney for the plaintiff. The certificate shall declare that the attorney has discovered one or
    more facts corroborative of one or more of the charging allegations against a defendant or defendants, and shall set forth in clear and concise terms the nature and substance of the corroborative fact. If the corroborative fact is evidenced by the statement of a witness or the contents of a document, the certificate shall declare that the attorney has personal knowledge of the statement of the witness or of the contents of the document, and the identity and location of the witness or document shall be included in the certificate. For purposes of this section, a fact is corroborative of an allegation if it confirms or supports the allegation. The opinion of any mental health practitioner concerning the plaintiff shall not constitute a corroborative fact for purposes of this section.

    (2) Where the application to name a defendant is made prior to that defendant’s appearance in the action, neither the application nor the certificate of corroborative fact by the attorney shall be
    served on the defendant or defendants, nor on any other party or their counsel of record.

    (3) Where the application to name a defendant is made after that defendant’s appearance in the action, the application shall be served on all parties and proof of service provided to the court, but the
    certificate of corroborative fact by the attorney shall not be served on any party or their counsel of record.

    (o) The court shall review the application and the certificate of corroborative fact in camera and, based solely on the certificate and any reasonable inferences to be drawn from the certificate, shall, if one or more facts corroborative of one or more of the charging allegations against a defendant has been shown, order that the complaint may be amended to substitute the name of the defendant or
    defendants.

    (p) The court shall keep under seal and confidential from the public and all parties to the litigation, other than the plaintiff, any and all certificates of corroborative fact filed pursuant to subdivision (n).

    (q) Upon the favorable conclusion of the litigation with respect to any defendant for whom a certificate of merit was filed or for whom a certificate of merit should have been filed pursuant to this section, the court may, upon the motion of a party or upon the court’s own motion, verify compliance with this section by requiring the attorney for the plaintiff who was required by subdivision (h) to execute the certificate to reveal the name, address, and telephone number of the person or persons consulted with pursuant to subdivision (h) that were relied upon by the attorney in preparation of the certificate of merit. The name, address, and telephone number shall be disclosed to the trial judge in camera and in the absence of the moving party. If the court finds there has been a failure to comply with this section, the court may order a party, a party’s attorney, or both, to pay any reasonable expenses, including attorney’s fees, incurred by the defendant for whom a certificate of merit should have been filed. …”

    This is starting to smell like a money grab, several suits, with low enough dollar values that the plaintiffs will likely settle out of court with some kind of stipulation of a gag order. This guy gets paid, world moves on….

    • eleventyeight says:

      If it’s a money grab why is he only seeking $300k from Billionaires?

      • Falsk Konto says:

        If he went for millions, it woudl be obvious, and these legal teams would pull out all the stops to fight the claims and that involves risk of what might be dredged up. If he accuses a few people, and goes for lower amounts per person, it’s cheaper to settle than fight the allegations of something that happened 16 years ago. and he still walks away with a modest payout, as well as sudden publicity I’m not saying that these execs aren’t predators and dirtballs, (I suspect that they probably are…)

Come judgement day you will answer for your decisions. So grow up and think about these kids who don’t have a choice in the matter. All this name calling and degrading is not attending to the matter at hand. This is not between black and white. No color or race is involved here. Our children are. Stop fighting amongest ourselves and fight for these children NO MATTER WHAT.

  42. Jane S. says:

    Huh? Where were you when Chris Anderson, Director of Male Survivor, the largest group for male sexual abuse survivors posted here last week that ON AVERAGE it takes TWENTY years for a victim to come forward.

    Some of the Sandusky victims waited fifteen years to come forward and law enforcement believe there are many others who will never come forward because of the shame about being abused.

    I have a male friend who was molested by a child psychiatrist back in 1968. The man did not come forward for 44 years!! But he won a civil suit against the doctor, who as it turned out had been molesting hundreds of boys. I can’t tell you how many victims waited thirty years to come forward. Last year the doctor at age 81, went to prison.

    You really need to educate yourself about sex abuse victims and why most of them never come forward.

    Shame on your comment.

    Penn State paid their pervert president $3 million in exchange for his silence as to the names of the wealthy donors who paid for their hideous and sickening activities through Pedophile State.

    Nothing happened in ‘Hapless Valley’ without the knowledge and approval of JoePed. JoePed’s home phone number was listed in the White Pages and through Directory Assistance. Why? When the Deputy Sheriff in Backwater County, Ohio discovered Penn State’s first string running back on top of a fourteen year old in the back seat of a Chevy Impala, calling Joe and forgetting the incident resulted in a pair of good seats to the Notre Dame or Ohio State game, or a Penn State scholarship to the Deputy’s child.

    Penn State’s ‘sanction’ was nothing more than a whitewash. Pedophile State paid Graham Spanier $3 million for his silence regarding the wealthy donors who received young boys groomed by Sandusky, Paterno, AD Curley, President Spanier, and Senior VP Schulze. Federal prosecutors should have investigated the pit of perverts, not Louis Freeh. Pedophile State was let off easy, and the world knows it.
    Jerry Sandusky founded the ‘Second Mile’ charity in the late 1980’s for the sole purpose of finding and grooming innocent boys for Penn State high ranking administrators and wealthy donors. Pedophile State’s Board of Trustees knew and approved of the hideous activities.
