Last month Jessica Chastain also called attention to the allegations that have followed Singer for years while talking about her support for victims of sexual assault in Hollywood. Singer continues to deny all the allegations and has not yet been charged. ~

A second, unnamed man came forward in 2014 and also launched a sexual abuse lawsuit against Singer claiming he and another man sexually abused him in 2006 when he was only 14. Singer’s accusations go even further back though, to 1997 when he was accused of asking underage cast members to shower on his film Apt Pupil.

Though Singer has been lucky enough to avoid formal charges and has continued to have a successful career as a director (he’s currently helming the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody), rumors continued to swirl about his behavior.
