"They have contacted my friends, colleagues and people I don't even know."
Bryan Singer, director of the upcoming bio-pic Bohemian Rhapsody about the life and times of Freddie Mercury, posted on Instagram this week that Esquire Magazine is about to publish a hit piece on him.
Although the 53-year-old director won't specifically say what the article will reveal he does call it "fictional and irresponsible” and adds it “will rehash false accusations and baseless lawsuits”.
Singer says in the post, “In today’s climate where people’s careers are harmed by mere accusations, what Esquire is attempting to do is a reckless disregard for the truth."
Four years ago the director was under fire for allegedly sexually assaulting Michael Egan who said Singer drugged him. Egan later dropped the suit
Then in 2017, another man came forward with similar claims. Cesar Sanchez-Guzman said he was only 17 when Singer allegedly forced him to have oral and anal sex according to Queerty. Singer has denied all accusations against him.
The director points out that this article is scheduled to drop coinciding with the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie he says he is immensely proud of.
Esquire has not yet commented on the upcoming article.
