BRYAN SINGER: Sued Over Rape of 17-Year-Old Boy
Director Bryan Singer has had the worst, bad week.
It started by getting fired from the Queen bio-pic and finished with a lawsuit alleging he raped a 17-year-old boy. He promised the teenager a jump-start to his acting career if he kept quiet about the sexual assault.
Cesar Sanchez-Guzman claims that Singer “thrust his body on him” in 2003 during a yacht party “populated by young gay males.” Despite Guzman pleading no, Singer allegedly forced the teenager into sex. His lawsuit alleges, (quote) "The sexual abuse has caused Cesar to experience severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life."
Singer’s attorney released a statement last night, (quote) “Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end.” (TMZ)

TOM ARNOLD: Frankly, He's With Franken
Tom Arnold might not seem like the most likely pal for Al Franken, but he's just stepped up to say he thinks the disgraced Minnesota senator got a raw deal in his most publicized sexual harassment case.
The onetime Roseanne co-star hit Twitter on Wednesday night to say that he knows accuser Leeann Tweeden and has doubts about her story. Tom wrote, "I'm disappointed in my friend Leeann. I've gone to bat for her 100 times this past month hoping she'd reveal her whole truth, but she ghosted me. The only truth about [her] story was the picture. The rest was created by Trump supporter Roger Stone, who coached Leeann for weeks to take Al down."
Tom ended his stream-of-consciousness tweet-storm by saying, “I’m not defending him. I just wanted full disclosure. I always believe the women. There are some bad men trying to take advantage of both Leeann and Al on this one.”
KIM KARDASHIAN: Stay-Away Mom?
How much of a control freak is Kim Kardashian? So much that her surrogate doesn't even want her in the delivery room when her baby is born!
A source close to the baby mama, whose name has not been made public, tells In Touch Weekly, “There will be major tension between them in the delivery room. The surrogate doesn’t even want Kim to be there at this point, but she has no other choice. Everyone is fearful a fight could break out between them!”
The trouble started weeks ago, when Kim refused to invite the woman to her baby shower -- even though she's the one carrying the baby! The same snitch says, "Kim didn't want her to be the center of attention."
