For fifteen years, Roger Friedman has been keeping track of the sex parties that Bryan Singer has been alleged to have participated in with young teens. Back in 1999 Friedman wrote a story that will blow your mind and this weekend he updated it because a name filled in a big piece of the puzzle to the story. That name is Marc Collins Rector who is named in the lawsuit filed against Bryan Singer. Rector's company was bankrolled by Dana Giacchetto. Giancchetto is the man who ran an investment company for A listers that was later to be revealed a Ponzi scheme. Leonardo DiCaprio was Giacchetto's biggest A lister (photo above) and before he was discovered as a fraud were really good friends. To read the entire piece of really great reporting, click here.
One quote that really sets the table is the following:
As soon as I saw the name Marc Collins-Rector, I knew that a big piece of an old jigsaw puzzle had finally been found. Michael Egan alleges rape and all kinds of sexual horrors by Singer and others at a Hollywood estate in 1999-2000. Collins- Rector owned the estate, formerly owned by rapper and felon Marion “Suge” Knight. Egan would have been a teen then. His allegations fit in with another story I was reporting at that time, about criminal business manager and Ponzi schemer Dana Giacchetto (Leonardo DiCaprio and Mike Ovitz’s former BFF) and a company called DEN– Digital Entertainment Network, which was owned by Collins- Rector. It’s a lurid story of Hollywood at its worst. Egan says today that he originally filed a suit in 2000, when all this was going on, but no one listened to him. Now it all may come out. And if Singer is culpable, the saga may involve a lot of well known names. The Collins-Rector part of the story is what should concern all the parties involved.
With Friedman's reporting, and the Oscar nominated director Amy Berg filming a documentary about sex abuse in Hollywood, this story is just going to get bigger.
