Embattled “X-Men” director Bryan Singer is secretly paying a friend $1 million to have his baby, The National ENQUIRER can exclusively reveal.
Sources say Singer – who’s been accused of sexual abuse by two different men – bought a home for pregnant actress Michelle Clunie in West Hollywood, Calif.
Singer, 49, is often linked with men, but dated Michelle, 44, in his 20s. He cast her in his breakthrough film, the 1995 drama “The Usual Suspects.”
Friends say Michelle, who played a lesbian in the TV series “Queer as Folk,” is due in December and will pocket over $1 million for carrying the child. “He’s paying for everything,” said a source.
The director and Michelle are “best friends,” said another source, who saw baby items being delivered to her home.
“She lives on Bryan’s property, and when they delivered the baby things, one of Bryan’s assistants helped bring it all in,” said the source.
Singer’s sex life came under scrutiny early this year when former model Michael Egan slapped him with a lawsuit, claiming Singer abused him when he was underage. The suit was later withdrawn.
An unnamed British man filed another abuse claim, which was dismissed by a U.S. court.
