American movie director Bryan Singer has been accused in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old boy at a party more than a decade ago.

The lawsuit filed in Seattle, Wash., claims Singer demanded sex from Cesar Sanchez-Guzman during a 2003 yacht party. After Sanchez-Guzmanrefused, the lawsuit says, Singer pushed him on the bed and sexually assaulted him.

A representative for Singer toldthe New York Times that the director denies the allegations.

He "categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end." The representative added: "Once Bryan prevails, he will pursue his own claims for malicious prosecution."

Messages left by The Associated Press seeking comment from Singer's representatives early Friday were not immediately returned.

Singer directed Superman Returnsand several X-Menmovies.
