Bryan Singer Allegations Bringing In Bigger Names

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.

Today's first 3 stories are making me feel like I need to take another shower--they are so rife with the dirty. :(

carolinalily said...

I wonder how/when this will all tie in to the allegations that Corey Feldman has been making about sexual predators in Hollywood...

BeckyMae said...

Yep @Sandy....Silkwood Showers for all!!

FSP said...

Let the bodies hit the floor.

TalksTooMuch said...

I know whatcha mean, sandy. I am kinda missing when Morning Enty would try to get everyone riled up with race baiting or Kstuff or whatever. Just alls the gross this morning.

nora nader said...

I'm hoping something does come out of all of these allegations, all these old stories that were buried back in the day. I hope and pray there is true karma and justice in the world.

...the cynical part of me still believes, though, that somehow, someway, people will be paid and this will all be buried once again... and Hollywood will continue on its pedophile ways w/in a month or so.

Which in turn, then makes me start thinking that vigilantes in situations like these aren't such a bad thing....

Katie said...

MCR's name has been out for a long time from the first suit of Enger's. And it came out again last week with the most recent suit. He fled the country years ago

sandybrook said...

Those are some nasty looking feet in your avi today @FSP

T. E. Cuz said...

but look what they did to corey - they discredited him and made him seem like an out-there, druggie, failed child star. "oh him? really? look at him, of course he would say something like that. look at all the smiling faces, how can anything bad be happening?"

this might end up in truth and justice... or these people will be the scapegoat of this issue, and then in a year or so, another producer-type will have another big party...

nora nader said...

Just a thought....if chemical castration were legal and was the punishment of pedophiles, I bet we'd have more pedo's keeping their peen in check - men love their dicks...and probably will do almost anything to keep it in tact.
/sigh...but we live in a fantasy-laden puritanical society where everyone believes pedophiles can be changed through love. /rolls eyes

sandybrook said...

there's too much money backing these guys for anything bad to happen to them. The worst that will probably happen is some of that money will be exchanged for silence and continued looking the other way.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I'm with Nora, I bet they circled the wagons and paid a lot of people off this weekend. Too much money and power being thrown around to make a difference.

Thanks to MadLyb (wherever you are) I was in a Bryan Singer sex party k-hole on data lounge last night. I know way more than I need to about Kevin Spacey's butt activities.

Anyone want to talk about the Jay Z-Drake fondu fight? Jesus.

FSP said...

I had them did just for you, sandyboo.

surfer said...

I know we discussed this here before, but regarding the two Coreys, I think one of the big names involved (and hopefully will be revealed), is Joel Schumacher. Too many stories about him.

And from what I've read, the late Brad Renfro was abused by these guys as well (his first big movie was a Schumacher film).

nora nader said...

Exactly what I was thinking @sandybrook. After all, it's very interesting how the criminal complaints to the pd and fbi somehow mysteriously disappeared years ago when first filed. Either our law enforcement agencies are involved and party with the sickos or were paid a very hefty sum to look the other way.

I want to believe justice will be served...but time has proven that money talks and the truth walks when it comes to Hollywood or political bigwigs.

Seven of Eleven said...

Corey Feldman IS an out there druggie failed star - he doesn't need anyone to make him look like one. If his bunny birthday party didn't convince you, maybe this will.

That said, I'm surprised this isn't a Mr X blind, but not surprised that it's getting a lot of play. Maybe himmmm will come back and share a phone number or two.

sandybrook said...

Don't forget the church @Nora they paid big money.

Kno Won Uno said...

I know this stuff is awful, awful hideousness - but am I really the only person who's always assumed sh!t like this was going on?
I've always thought that about the entertainment industry. So much money, so much power, so much ego, so many young, pretty people trying to find their way in the world.
It's like a predator's private garden.
I guess I'm appalled and disgusted, but not shocked.

Frosty said...

Interesting that Mike Ovitz's name is mentioned in passing. He did it in a self-destructive way, but I wonder if this party or others like it are part of what he was referring to?

FSP said...

@Seven - Himmmm....hahahahaha

And how dare you with that video!

nora nader said...

Yes, can't forget the church too.

okay..playing devil's advocate here for a sec:

...as for Corey Feldman and to @SevenofEleven... I give Corey F. a break on that because I believe his drug use and crazy mental issues all stem from being passed around like a community sex doll when he was still a child. So, yes, while Corey F is a druggie and a little out there, I blame it on the rapes he endured as a child.

For those who say, well he had every chance to walk away, you have to understand the human mental state - most abused people cannot deal with it -- hence the bizarre actions by them, such as Stockholm syndrome.

I feel/felt so bad for the two Corey's. They were used and abused and then tossed out like old trash. That can do some serious damage to a human being, let alone a child.

MISCH said...

OMG I remember this……I didn't really care because everyone who lost money were ubber rich. This is getting dirtier and dirtier,

T. E. Cuz said...

yes @seven, i think that the media shined their light on that - instead of giving any attention to his past experiences, which might even have had a hand in his substance use.

I think ted danson needs to send a decoy to nickelodeon.

Renoblondee said...

I feel that way too @Kno

Seven of Eleven said...

@nora, I'm not disagreeing with you - I do believe Corey's life was messed up by drugs and sexual abuse, and yes, "walking away" isn't always an option for someone who has been broken down by abuse. I don't give him a pass, however, because of how he threw Corey Haim under the bus after Haim died. It's a classic case of victims victimizing, and there's no pleasure in watching it happen.

Seven of Eleven said...

I owed you one, @FSP. :D

anda marie said...

Corey is a Jacka$$, but was most likely used & abused as a child with parents that looked the other way. His "career" was in the toilet long before he talked about pedos in HW.

nora nader said...

@Seven - I completely forgot about what he did to Corey Haim after his passing.

Jessi said...

I think I missed when Corey threw Haim under the bus. What happened there?

Also, and its Monday Morn, and I haven't had coffee, but why is Leo involved in this? At least reading the article it doesn't sound like he was involved? I don't know man, I am all kind of confused this morning.

Habibti said...

Its about time someone had the balls to stand up against these hollywood perverts.

Sloth said...

Hey you guys!!!

nurysp said...

is leo involved in some wild debauchery that has black listed him from ever winning a oscar?
is this it

rajahcat said...

agree with Kno here

I too have always thought this stuff was going on

like I've said before keep you kiddies aways from the biz..........it is a playground for evil pervs.......

surfer said...

Leo wasn't involved with Bryan Singer.

He was friends, and did business with, Dana Giacchetto, who was instrumental in the DEN story that Enty discussed in this post. Go read Roger Friedman's article, for a better understanding.

JoeInLA said...

I feel like I'm yelling into the wind here, but people are waaaaaay too quick to assume that everything they read or hear is true. Maybe it's from years of working for law firms and then going to law school and representing clients of my own, but I discovered one maxim that attorneys live by -- your client is always lying to you. Maybe he doesn't think of it as out-and-out lying, maybe he's just not telling you something he thinks is not relevant to his claims, but you can bet on it -- you are not hearing the whole story, which is why I take claims like these with a huge grain of salt (a rock, really). I would not want most of the posters here on the jury of any case I was handling. The speed with which people assume that anything they hear is true is more than a bit frightening, and reminds me that this is the same country where we burned women for being witches.

sugarbread maker said...

Joel discovered Colin Farrell too. Same back door way.

sifichick said...

The more I dig about this the sadder it gets. SO many names are being attached. I even read that the guy from Glee who died might have been one of the guys who was abused & helped them find boys who were abused. It's also been said that Seann William Scott was someone who was helping find boys. SO many involved it's just disgusting.

I've seen so many people saying "It's not true because he kept going back". First off he was 15 when all of it started. He was evidently threatened. His family was threatened as well. These predators know exactly what to say to keep their prey right where they want them. The more I read up about this case the more I'm believing Egan is telling the truth. This whole thing is just so incredibly sad.

Sherry said...

That picture reminds me of seeing part of Romeo and Juliet with Leo and Claire Danes the other day. He was only like 22. Such a baby. I'm trying to figure out how Leo fits in this as well.

surfer said...

I don't discount what you're saying, JoeinLA, but those who know Bryan Singer, and travel in those circles, know most of this to be true, sadly.

Yesterday, I fell down the rabbit hole, starting with a Defamer/Gawker story. Link after link to more stories. Loads of pictures, with huge names in the industry. Barry Diller and Sandy Gallin, with all these very, very young guys, traveling all over the world. David Geffen too. The young guys have pictures plastered all over FB. Look up Bryan Fox on FB - check out his photos and friends list (can't believe they're not private).

https://www.facebook.com/bryanfoxtwin?fref=ts

Will be very interesting to see how this all plays out.

TalksTooMuch said...

@Joe I think a little late to the party that's what harmful about this kinda thing. We don't need facts! We've made up our minds! Like blinds in general, I already have decided completely what Steven Segal is aboot, and there wasn't even a reveal! Power of suggestion

nora nader said...

@JoeinLA: Okay, I will give you that. Most people do and will lie to their lawyers -- and doctors. /grin

In that same respect, though, I have learned that where there's smoke, there's usually a fire. So, while I'll take all this w/ a grain of salt, these stories have been going on for years -- and even if Egan isn't telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth -- there's still some sick shit going on out there w/ under aged boys and girls.

Hollywood can be an amazing place where cinematic fantasy is created, but there's also a dark evil side to it that's slowly been creeping out for a while now and you can't ignore it. Knowledge is responsibility.

EvieShackles said...

Since the lawyer hired to represent on this case is the same lawyer that outed the Boyscouts and the Catholic church pedophilia scandals... you can bet, this man has great experience taking down powerful-huge money organizations. Definitely, the right man to expose Hollywood. Time will tell....

Lady Heisenberg said...

I agree that many sexual predators cannot be rehabilitated, however, both my personal experiences working with dozens of them, and general statistics on sex offender recidivism, would question the effectiveness of implementing chemical castration like Depo Provera etc across the board. Constitutionality issues aside, this kind of thing worked in many cases no doubt, but not all of them. As you would imagine, in other cases, sex drive/hormones have very little explanatory capacity, since some sex crimes are purely about power.

Joe: Fair play. I want to give everyone as much benefit of the doubt, but they're making that very tough. There are just so many stories, photos, accusations...not to mention, there IS a convicted sex offender with ties to human trafficker deeply connected to this case (MCR). This case will be huge, it will be interesting to see how things proceed.

Cracks in the hollywood gay illuminati????

@Joe Benefit of the doubt is all good & well but usually when there's this much smoke there is fire somewhere. From what I've seen there have been rumors about him for years & years. Yes the timing is kind of suspect but I read somewhere that Hawaii extended the statute of limitations & his time is running out. Also this isn't the first time he's tried to go after him but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears before.

This lawyer has said that he's going to be going after other Hollywood pedos. I can't wait to see that go down. It seems like it's going to be an interesting couple weeks while these cases are brought to light. If I were a pedo in Hollywood I'd be shaking in my boots about now.

Leekalicious said...

I want to try to help explain why criminal charges can show up later. I want to address what sexual interference can do to a young person. Most sexual abuse is not (fortunately) holding someone down and forcing them to do what you want. The way a person is introduced to love (and sex - for most teens they are the same thing) can affect the rest of their life. Most gay teenagers have several strikes against them - lack of support from their parents and peers being large ones. Their parents can't protect them from something they don't know about. Gay people dream of love like straight people do. Many pedophiles truly believe that they are in love with the child, and that they are the best person to help. If the teenager falls in love with an older person, the affair can go on for months or years. The pedophile tires of the youngster, maybe they become too clingy or demanding, and the child is suddenly cut off from the object of their affection. The
person dumping them may try to introduce them to a friend (that is 'pass them around'). They can't reach them by phone, they can't follow them into bars since they are underage, and the teen is dumped, heartbroken and not prepared for the betrayal. They can't confide in their parents because they don't want the person that they still love to get in trouble. This is when substance abuse can begin, and more self-loathing than there was before. When the teenager grows up and is able to see the abuse for what it was, they are able to talk about it and they probably no longer care if the abuser gets in trouble. This is the nuts and bolts of this type of abuse. I do know what I'm talking about.

tigerdilly said...

Remember the whole hayden fiasco? same deal. Hollywood is all evil. Magic wands were always made out of the wood of a Holly tree btw

Sherry said...

Leek..I get where you're going with that one but that could be said the same of all "teenaged" love truly.

I believe there is something going on. Were the kids underage? Hard to know for sure! Are the straight pedos going after kids whom everyone loves? Absolutely. Let's get them all but again let's not make this w gay witch hunt.

Dexamyl said...

"The Collins-Rector part of the story is what should concern all the parties involved."

I mentioned in a previous thread that the most damning thing for Singer was his association with Collins-Rector, a convicted pedo.

Seann William Scott got his start in DEN's "Chad's World" and, if given immunity, could unearth a lot of skeletons. It's time for all of this to come out.

Ri said...

This Singer thing has opened one big giant Pandora's Box!
p.s. I need a penicillin prescription with all these blinds this morning! The sheep put me over the edge!

hairydawg said...

RECTOR!!!

feraltart said...

Glad the light is being shone on sex crimes. Hopefully community pressure will bring about wide ranging changes & oversight to this industry.

Have to wonder about Cate Blanchett. Worked with Woody Allen & now her Australian agents husband has been convicted of child sex crimes. Dodgy as shit. Have lost all respect for that woman.

SVixen said...

Just posted from TMz:

The 3 men named in the new lawsuit are Garth Ancier, David Neuman and Gary Goddard.

Jodell24 said...

Did I miss that? What did he do?

Seven of Eleven said...

@Jodelll and @Jessi - after Corey Haim's death, Feldman wrote a book and said that Haim told him he was sexually molested. Haim, of course, couldn't refute the story and Feldman made it all about how he was drawn into the circle of sexual abuse (while at the same saying Michael Jackson was basically a unicorn farting rainbows).

During their first meeting, on the film The Lost Boys, Haim confided in his new friend that on the set of the 1986 film Lucas, 'an adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the guys do. So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers... and Haim (was) sodomized.'

Corey Feldman told cops he was molested and named his abusers but they did nothing because they were too focused on Michael Jackson investigation

@7 there is a cute photo of tatiana. Masaly. From ob. On blind gossip.

TLP said...

Good. Take down the kiddy diddlers, their enablers, the parents who chose to ignore it and the execs who ignored the old phrase "where there's smoke there's fire"

Erik said...

Hollywood is, and always has been, a cesspool.

Rose said...

@SVixen, I'm not familiar with those three men. Are they well know in Hollywood?

Amy in MI said...

Garth Ancier is huge. Founded WB network. Ran NBCand helped get Fox started.

Leekalicious said...

I was thinking about the musician Billy Squier, and reading an interview where he was talking about his hit Stroke Me (80s if I recall). He said he wrote it after an unpleasant encounter with David Geffen. Squier said that he had been pressured for sex by Geffen.

Crystal said...

Exactly

Mia Luna said...

Feraltart I totally agree. No respect at all for her now. For those who don't know Cate Blanchett thanked her Australian agent Robyn Gardiner in an awards speech sending a veiled message of support while her husband Robert Hughes child sex trial was underway. Robyn was (and still is) very powerful in the Australian acting world. Her agency represents almost every well known Aussie actor. She had been told about her husband's behaviour by several people over the years and chose to protect and enable him. He's just been convicted, which shows there is some justice in the world.

I really hope more victims come forward in this case rather than allowing themselves to be paid off. If there's a whole lot of people, this guy's accusations will suddenly seem more credible and justice might actually get done.

el80ne said...

@Mia I don't see why that makes Cate an object of scorn. She may have just been expressing her support for her longtime friend and agent who was coming to terms with her husband while dealing with the trial.
