The X-Men director accused of sexually abusing an underage teen boy by seducing him with drugs and alcohol has finally released a statement professing his innocence.

More than a week after the lawsuit was filed in Hawaii by Michael Egan III, Bryan Singer had this to say of the allegations:

"The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career.

"So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I've decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support."

Egan, now 31, claims that he was "raped numerous times" in an Encino, Calif. party house when he was between the ages of 15 and 17, by numerous people including Singer, 48, and filed a civil lawsuit against the director.


The accuser then named three additional men to his lawsuit: former Hollywood honcho Garth Ancier, former Disney TV boss David Neuman and Broadway producer Gary Goddard.
