Bryan Singer, the director of "Bohemian Rhapsody," is facing new allegations published in The Atlantic on Wednesday that he engaged in sexual misconduct with underage boys.
In the report, four men allege that Singer had sexual encounters with them when they were teenagers in the late 1990s. One of the men, Victor Valdovinos, says he was a 13-year-old extra on the set of "Apt Pupil" when Singer fondled his genitals.
The three other accusers are identified in the story by pseudonyms. One, identified in the story as Andy, says that he had sex with Singer when he was 15. Another man, identified as Eric, says he was 17 when he began having sex with the director. Singer would have been 31 at the time. The third man, Ben, alleges that he and Singer had oral sex when he was 17 or 18.
"He would stick his hands down your pants without consent," the man told The Atlantic. "He was predatory in that he would ply people with alcohol and drugs and then have sex with them."

Singer's attorney, Andrew Brettler, denied to the magazine that Singer had ever had sex with underage boys, and disputed various details of the accusers' accounts.
