Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer faces new sexual misconduct allegations

In the report, four men allege 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 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.

Mother! suggests a sympathetic, if essentialist view of women and their role: giving birth, nurturing life. And in this case, supporting a celebrity author husband with writer's block. But Ball and Chain! might have been more appropriate.

The film is a devastating portrayal of male selfishness in which an artist behaves appallingly to his wife who spends much of the movie trying to get his attention. He acts out of neglect more than anything else, but this triggers consequences that are catastrophic for her.
