FILE - In this March 3, 2012 file photo, director Bryan Singer arrives at the Los Angeles premiere of the play "8" in Los Angeles. A man who claims he was sexually abused by the "X-Men" franchise director Singer said Thursday, April 17, 2014, that he reported the molestation to authorities at the time, and does not know why charges were never pursued. Egan sued Singer in Hawaii on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, and is seeking more than $75,000 on each of four accusations: intentional infliction of emotional distress, battery, assault and invasion of privacy. (AP Photo/Dan Steinberg, file)HONOLULU (AP) — A lawyer for "X-Men" franchise director Bryan Singer says the director has credit card receipts, telephone records and production schedules from the first movie in the comic book series that show he wasn't in Hawaii when a lawsuit claims he sexually abused a 17-year-old on the islands.
