Aspiring actor Michael Egan III had claimed that Singer forced him to have sex at parties in California and Hawaii in the late 1990s, when Egan was 17 years old. Egan filed a lawsuit in April in Hawaii, weeks before the release of the latest "X-Men" film, "X-Men: Days of Future Past." He had denied that the timing was aimed at maximizing the pressure on Singer, saying it was instead due to a legal "window" in Hawaii that meant he had to file then or drop the case.
