I spoke to one straight executive yesterday who gave me shocking details about parties at the Encino mansion called the M & C Estate owned by convicted sex offender Marc Collins-Rector, where Singer is accused of molesting Egan.
"This house was famous for this,” said the executive. “There were straight parties that turned into gay parties.” This executive has been to the house and a close associate was there frequently because he worked for Rector at the time. The associate told him at the time: “‘Dude, this # is crazy what goes on after hours. Something isn't right here. This is not cool. There are young boys running around naked. There is naked # going on in the pool late at night.”
He continued: “It was a trick. They would throw these lavish parties, they'd have these private planes, and they would get these 18-17-15-year-old guys, they brought their girlfriends, and they'd try to flip them. They'd take the lowest hanging fruit. They'd say, ‘You want chicks? You want planes?’ And they'd throw these straight parties and use it as a breeding ground to get guys.”
It's serious because it confirms some of the planet's worst suspicions about Hollywood — that this place is a moral cesspool. And it's serious because it tilts toward confirming what even the cognoscenti like to joke about this place, that it's run by a gay mafia (calling Michael Ovitz).
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Egan recognizes Singer as part of a ring of eight to ten abusers, including other Hollywood power-players not named in this lawsuit—“whose names you will recognize”.
Countless sources have gone on record to state that child abuse is rampant in Hollywood; Singer did attend parties at the M & C Estate which was owned by a convicted abuser. More importantly, it is not the first time that he is accused of “inappropriate behavior” towards a minor boy.
In 1997, a 14 year-old movie extra named Devin St. Albin filed a lawsuit against Singer claiming that the filmmakers had ordered him and other minors to strip for a scene that was shot in the showers of a school locker room.

Please don't drag Sir Ian into this. He is too much of a respected man to stoop to these levels.
Also, I hope you're not of the old set of thinking gay=pedophile either.
For Apt Pupil, Bryan Singer filmed a shower scene in which Todd Bowden, saturated with horrific stories from Kurt Dussander, imagines his fellow showering students as Jewish prisoners in gas chambers. The scene was filmed at Eliot Middle School in Altadena, California on April 2, 1997, and two weeks later, a 14-year-old extra filed a lawsuit alleging that Singer forced him and other extras to strip naked for the scene. Two boys, 16 and 17-years-old each, later supported the 14-year-old’s claim. The boys claimed trauma from the experience, seeking charges against the filmmakers including infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and invasion of privacy. Allegations were made that the boys were filmed for sexual gratification. The local news shows and national tabloid programs stirred the controversy. A sexual crimes task force that included local, state, and federal personnel investigated the incident. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office determined that there was no cause to file criminal charges, stating, “The suspects were intent on completing a professional film as quickly and efficiently as possible. There is no indication of lewd or abnormal sexual intent.” The civil case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence. The scene was filmed again with adult actors so the film could finish on time.
The lawsuit reflected “a recent cultural concern” about nudity in showers being connected to “sexual or erotic forms of gazing”. The journal Body & Society wrote, “The ways in which the accusation that the director and other crew members identified as gay is seen to collapse gay identity into gay sexual behaviour, but the wholesale collapse of nudity into sexuality.” The incident reflected the cultural trend that being gazed upon while naked would cause different forms of distress, threatening the “stability of the self as subject”. This undermines the subject’s ability to perform and as a result of the discomfort, brings more into question what the displayed nakedness is for.
Ian McKellen has spoken out against Britain's new anti-pedophile database, insisting the new scheme will dissuade amateur theaters from casting children. The Lord of the Rings star fears the Vetting and Barring Scheme, which requires any adult working with children to register and submit a background check, will result in limited roles for young performers.
Adults who don't comply face a fine of up to $8,000 and a criminal record, which McKellen maintains is unnecessary in the world of amateur theater.
