Much-accused director Bryan Singer is settling a almost two-year old rape case involving a minor with a hefty payout, but strict insistence on his innocence.
In a filing on Wednesday, a bankruptcy trustee recommended that the court approve a $150,000 settlement with Singer.
Andrew Brettler, Singer's attorney, said his client still maintains his innocence.
According to Sanchez-Guzman's suit, Bryan Singer "lured Cesar into a room, shut the door and demanded that Cesar perform oral sex". The lawyer also noted that Singer has never been arrested for or charged with any crime.
Sanchez-Guzman's accusation is only one of the many against the director. The bulk of those claims represent student loan debt, which is not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Some of the money will pay legal fees and some will pay creditors Sanchez-Guzman owed in bankruptcy court.
An amount of $61,000 will go to creditors, while additional funds would be used to pay for the administration of the case.
Sanchez-Guzman, who had previously filed for bankruptcy in 2014, had his case reopened in 2018 by a bankruptcy trustee, who argued that his claim against the X-Men director had not been originally listed among his assets, and that any proceeds from the case should be made available to his creditors, The Los Angeles Times reports. More recently, Millennium Films had hired Singer to direct "Red Sonja", but plans to shoot the film in Bulgaria this year were canceled.
