Michael Egan, the man who accused Bryan Singer, “X-Men” director and producer of the new ABC drama “Black Box,” of assault, has sued three more powerful Hollywood players for allegedly abusing him when he was a minor. Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard are all named in a new lawsuit.
According to TMZ, in the new lawsuit Egan claims Ancier, Neuman and Goddard sexually abused him by “sodomizing him, forcing oral sex and fondling him” when he was 15 during trips to Hawaii and at an Encino home.
Ancier (pictured, left) launched both FOX and the WB network and put some of the networks’ most iconc programs on the air, and he also created “The Ricki Lake Show.” Neuman (pictured, right) is the former president of Disney TV. Goddard is a Broadway producer.
Egan’s lawyer made the announcement at a press conference in Beverly Hills Monday, saying, “We’ve alleged that there’s a Hollywood sex ring, one of several sex rings,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
ABC pulled Singer’s name from promos for its new show “Black Box” after allegations that he drugged and sexually abused the 17-year-old Egan in 1999.
