Bryan Singer has been a ticking time bomb of allegations. Before open secrets were on trend in Hollywood, there were rumors of the director being a pedophile. If you were in a “Rape Culture” pool, you probably had at least $50 on him being next.
Which makes his recent departure from the Freddie Mercury biography that much more of a noodle scratcher. Noodle, meaning a common word for scratching your head. The head on your shoulders. Not to be confused with a limp crotch appendage. You have to be very exact in your language lately. Freaking Hollywood.
Bryan Singer has been fired from the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody after he took an unexpected leave of absence just a few weeks before filming was set to wrap on the project, leaving Twentieth Century Fox in the lurch.
The decision to fire Singer came after the director reportedly feuded with multiple actors on the set according to The Hollywood Reporter, forcing Twentieth Century Fox to remove him from the project.
Here’s how I’m interpreting “feuded with multiple actors.”
Actors: “Bryan has a long history/rumors of being a fondler of crotch noodles.”
Singer: “I directed X-men. Touch my dingle.”
Actors: “RAPE, RAPE, RAPE!”
Studio: “Singer needed to take a leave of absence to spend time with his family. Ala his flaccid noodle betwixt his unemployed thighs.”
Singer is also said to have thrown an object at star Rami Maleek at one point, who has earned a reputation as one of the most polite and affable actors in the industry.
This also follows allegations of wild partying and hedonistic behavior that have left the 52-year-old director on edge – according to a source who spoke to Radar.
The same source also alleges that the studio has dispensed with his services over fears sexual assault against claims against the director were about to resurface.
UPDATE: Bryan Singer's production company Bad Hat Harry has left the Fox lot, and Singer's three-year first look deal was not renewed after ending Oct. 31 https://t.co/nlK6XwsMWa

Lost in all this? We still haven’t gotten a decent X-Men: Dark Phoenix Saga movie. The last time it was because Bryan Singer left the franchise to make that abortion of a Superman reboot. Coincidentally enough? With Kevin Spacey (see Tearful Mother Recounts How Kevin Spacey Preyed on Her Teenage Son and Former Child Actor: ‘I was 14. Kevin Spacey Yanked Down my Jeans…’). I wonder if they exchanged notes?
Was the studio concerned about what’s out there on Singer? Is this really all about him being a douche to the guy from “Mr. Robot”? Or is the director telling the truth about having family issues? Right now it’s all he said/they said. With lots of errant dingles flapping in the wind.
But if the past few months in entertainment have taught us anything, rumors never stay just rumors. Looks like Singer could be the next to get sucked up in the Weinstein Effect.
