Reports have surfaced of accusations surrounding Hollywood director Bryan Singer just a month ahead of the release of his new movie, X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Documents filed in Hawaii claim that 31-year-old former child actor Michael Egan is accusing the director of abusing him when he was underage.

Egan is now suing Singer for ‘catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries.’

Jeff Herman, the lawyer representing Egan, filed the complaint and says he is planning on filing similar cases associated with other famous Hollywood heavyweights soon.

He said in a statement: ‘Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children. This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue.’

According to the document, Egan claims that the abuse started when he was just 14-years-old when he moved to Hollywood with his family.

Egan says that he was invited by Singer to a Hollywood party where he claims he was molested.

Singer is also accused of supplying alcohol to the then-underage boy.

The director has yet to respond to the accusations and Egan is set to appear at a press conference with his lawyer.
