Bryan Singer has broken his silence on claims that he sexually abused a minor. “The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false,” said the director in a statement released on Thursday.

Singer announced that he will withdraw from media events for his upcoming X-Men movie.

He explained, “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,” said Singer.

He continued, “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.”

A man named Michael Egan alleges that Singer sexually assaulted him on multiple occasions when Egan was a teenager in the late 1990s. Singer’s camp has indicated that he may take legal action against his accuser. Gossip Cop will have updates.
