A filmmaker behind movies including the soon-to-be-released “Bohemian Rhapsody” is preemptively responding to claims he believes will be included in a bombshell revelation.
Bryan Singer wrote on social media that he has “known for some time” Esquire plans to write the “negative article” about him.
According to the director’s Instagram post, the magazine has contacted a string of individuals in connection with the article.
Singer, who has faced previous allegations of sexual assault, claims the Esquire piece will be tied to the release of his upcoming film and “rehash” those old claims.
“It will also attempt to establish guilt by association simply because of people I’ve either known or met in the past,” Singer wrote. “They will be attempting to tarnish a career I’ve spent 25 years to build.”
