The host was Lester Waters, "a wealthy tech investor who frequently hosted parties for young gay males in the Seattle area", according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that Singer led Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, then 17, into a bedroom under the pretense of giving him a tour of the yacht.

Singer, who was sacked from his role as director of the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody just days ago, is being sued by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman who accused him of forcing the teenager into performing sex acts.

The suit also maintains Singer forcibly penetrated Guzman, now 31, and performed oral sex on him despite his protestations.

Singer "categorically denies" the allegations by Sanchez-Guzman.

Afterward, Sanchez-Guzman said, Singer approached him on the yacht and both threatened and cajoled him with his power in Hollywood.

Later, the director allegedly told Guzman that he was a "producer in Hollywood and that he could help Cesar get into acting as long as Cesar never said anything about the incident". The suit alleges that Singer told Guzman: "No one would believe him if he ever reported the incident, and that he could hire people who are capable of ruining someone's reputation".

Finally, Sanchez-Guzman seeks "general and specific damages" from Singer for, among other things, "emotional distress, mental aguish, physical and mental pain and suffering", stemming from the alleged attack.

Film director Bryan Singer has issued a statement denying allegations of sexual assault, as well as saying that he will "vehemently defend" himself in a lawsuit brought forward against him.

Brettler stated, "The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014". Egan later dropped that suit, and, according to the Los Angeles Times, in a letter to two of the other defendants in that case, Herman apologized for participating in "making what I now know to be untrue and provably false allegations against you". Singer later claimed that the movie's studio, Fox, had not permitted him to take time off to care for a sick parent.

Egan in 2015 pleaded guilty to fraud in an unrelated federal case in North Carolina.

The statement added that "once Bryan prevails" he will file claims for malicious prosecution against Sanchez-Guzman.
