Rumors have circulated about him and possibly Corey Feldman as well..

Director and Producer Bryan Singer is the latest of Hollywood elite to be accused of sexual misconduct. On Thursday, a lawsuit was filed in Seattle against Singer accusing him of raping a 17 year-old male on a yacht in 2003.

Cesar Sanchez-Guzman alleges that Singer forced the then 17 year-old to have oral sex with the director, before Singer penetrated him anally. The lawsuit states that Singer met Sanchez-Guzman at a party on a yacht owned by tech investor Lester Waters. The lawsuit claims Sanchez-Guzman did not know who Singer was at the time, but later in the evening, Singer promised that he could help Sanchez-Guzman launch an acting career if he would stay silent about the incident.
“He then told Cesar 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,” the lawsuit states. Singer responded to the lawsuit, denying the accusations. His statement references a 2014 lawsuit for similar reasons by Michael Egan, who accused Singer of drugging and raping him after they met at a Hollywood party.

It all brings to a head a long-brewing campaign of whispers and suspicions. Many in media at many levels assumed that, at some point, Singer would be swept up in the tide of allegations against powerful men in the entertainment industry, that the past suits and accusations would resurface. They just didn't know when or from what angle. Many in the in gay community have also spoken quietly or openly about Singer in similar ways.

This is probably why he was AWOL for his latest film and was then fired. Rumor is he knew this was going to come out soon and he hid. That makes sense.

I'm curious if powerful positions draw these types in - or is it something that comes from being in power? (abuse)

I don't know if he is guilty or not but someone is certain he is.

Hollywood is sick. Our country is sick.
Oh, no. It's not an American thing IMHO

You think this kind of shit doesn't happen in India?
Bollywood Producer Karim Morani Surrenders In Rape Case

And one of the creepiest and most disturbing photos I ever seen was back in 2015, when then 74 year old Stanislav Govorukhin, a famous Russian movie director (and well known actor before then too) showed up at some cinema festival with young actress Aglaya Shilovskaya on his arm; she was just 17 at the time (and had just co-starred in one of his recent films)

I mean, this is a high-school girl... with a 70+ year old man...

He is a member of the Duma, the national parliament, today, and there is not a young and pretty fellow member or staffer or intern, whom he has not groped, fondled, forcefully kissed, and otherwise sexually harassed

Old bastard just cannot keep his hands and lips and etc to himself. The girls all know it by now, warn the newbies too and, in Russian society, having little recourse against such a prominent man, just, literally, grin and bear it...

And the most powerful family in Russian cinema also think there is nothing wrong with sexual harassment: http://politicalhotwire.com/current-events/182568-world-built-sexual-harassment.html

And a well known actress over there actually PRAISED Weinstein: http://politicalhotwire.com/current-events/181287-russian-actress-praises-weinstein.html

I have began to think, maybe it's a movie industry thing? You know? Not a thing with any particular country, but, rather, with that particular line of work?

The crime is as old as civilised humanity.
Sex can sold or coerced. New twists are drugging, raping, denied.
It seems the good old boy network is going bye bye. Nah, it will queit down, and continue. It can't not.
