Singer - known for his work on the X-Men film series as well as Valkyrie and The Usual Suspects - was sacked this week from his latest project, the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, with sources close to the production claiming the director had been feuding openly with the film's star, Rami Malek.

Bryan Singer, who was recently fired from directing the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, is being sued for sexual assault.

The "X-Men" director has been sued several times for misconduct with underage boys.

After Singer allegedly performed oral sex on Guzman, the director is said to have penetrated the minor despite his pleas.

According to the suit, which was filed in a state court in Seattle and obtained by the trade paper, the yacht was owned by Lester Waters, a wealthy tech investor "who frequently hosted parties for young gay males in the Seattle area". Once they were alone in a room, the suit says Singer forced himself onto Guzman, knocked him to the floor, pressed Guzman's face into his crotch and made demands of oral sex.

Singer later promised he would help Sanchez-Guzman in Hollywood if he didn't tell anyone what had happened, the suit says.

In one of Singer's earlier films, Apt Pupil, a 14-year-old extra named Devin St.Albin had filed a lawsuit claiming that the filmmaker had ordered him and other minors to strip for a scene that was shot in the showers. Singer has denied the allegations.

Because of the alleged incident, Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain.

"The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan".

In 2015, Egan was sentenced to two years in federal prison in an unrelated fraud case.

According to reports, the director missed several days of production following the Thanksgiving holiday, with the film's cinematographer stepping in to direct. Singer was sacked from the film on Tuesday.
