According to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii, the 'X Men' director sexually abused Michael Egan in 1999 when he was 17 years old.

"X Men" director Bryan Singer is being sued after he was accused of sexually abusing an underage boy in 1999. According to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii on Wednesday, April 16, the plaintiff Michael Egan claimed that the director sexually molested him at a house in Encino when he was 17 years old.

Egan, who was an aspiring actor and model back then, alleged that Singer provided him alcoholic drinks and drugs including cocaine. Singer allegedly also flew him to Hawaii on more than one occasion.

The lawsuit additionally named former chairman of Digital Entertainment Network Marc Collins-Rector, who was accused of initiating the abuse. Egan now is seeking unspecified amount in damages for charges of intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion.

"Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children," Egan's lawyer Jeff Herman said in a statement released to media. "This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue."

Representatives for Singer have not commented on the accusation. The director's upcoming movie "X Men: Days of Future Past" will hit U.S. theaters next month.
