Stuerman had alleged that in 2009 he began a sexual relationship with Singer that ended in 2013 only after he was fired from his position. Stuerman was 18 and the screenwriter was 43 at the time.

The former assistant claimed that he would visit Singer's Hollywood home to watch movies where "it was then expected that we’d have sex or, at the very least, I would masturbate with him." He continued, "he would get very frustrated if I fell asleep before he was finished."

Stuerman also alleged that he was left "traumatized" after being present in the New York native's residence after Singer had assaulted someone in front of him. "I could never have predicted what came next, it all happened so fast," Stuerman wrote of the incident.

"I heard loud yelling coming toward me. When I turned, I saw Bryan charging toward us screaming very angrily," the alleged victim claimed. "He violently attacked one of the guests near me."

"I grabbed Bryan and took him back into the house. His eyes were wild and full of rage," Stuerman stated. "I had never seen him like this before. We went to his room and he slammed the door. I found a shattered lamp on the floor and began picking up the pieces." Singer then allegedly told his employee/lover "I’ll f----g kill you if you leave me."

"I realized I was trapped alone in a room with a violently drunk man. The terror quickly sank in. What had happened?," he detailed of the horrific moment. "He was growing angry again. If I had to scream for help, no one would have heard me." He continued stating, "from then on, I lived in fear of Bryan following through on his threats."

"If Bryan found out I had hooked up with someone without his permission — without inviting him to participate — he berated me, and dangled my future in front of me. I wasn’t allowed to date," Stuerman alleged. "I wasn’t allowed to have sex with people of my choosing. He controlled me."

Singer was sued in 2014 for allegedly raping a minor. The lawsuit was later dropped. There were also allegations that he had been inappropriate with minors during the filming of 1998's Apt Pupil. Singer has denied all allegations against him.
