And why wouldn't an ambitious young actor want to attend?A twink might hear whisperings of boys who fucked their way to the top—Taylor Lautner, two sources told us, carries an unconfirmed reputation amongst the West Hollywood chatterati of having used Singer as a launching pad (and has been spotted at a Singer party). The twink-party scene of which Singer was a fixture is at once troubling and deeply familiar; scandalous and unsurprising.
The suit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Hawaii, accused the 48-year-old “X-Men” filmmaker of first preying on the 15-year-old aspiring actor at a party at a California mansion where underage boys were plied with drugs and alcohol and taken advantage of.
In May of last year, Singer spoke to magazine about his bisexuality.
And while he concluded he'd probably end up in a relationship with a man, he has had a number of female partners, including Clunie, who was his first serious girlfriend.
Although often identified as "openly gay," Bryan Singer never really came out -- to his parents or the public.
With his parents, he called his mom crying when he was having relationship trouble with a friend who was less confident in his identity.
But according to a handful of sources who spoke with Gawker over the course of the last week, he was known as the most generous and active benefactor of a scene that allowed the young and impressionable to rub up against Hollywood elite—including prominent writers, directors and actors—leaving behind bitter memories and a sheaf of newly filed lawsuits.
