[Blind Gossip] This Singer is in the middle of a big film project. However, he keeps “disappearing” due to a “health problem.”
Let’s talk about his real problem.
His problem is the decades of allegations of the sexual abuse of young boys in the entertainment industry.
If he is having any sort of a “health problem”, it should be a chronic panic attack over the fact that karma and the law are catching up to our mercurial director. About time, right?
Look for him to get replaced on this project soon.
By the way, this Singer is much more likely to direct a musical than to perform in one.

[Optional] What do you think will happen to his career?
Singer: Bryan Singer
Blind Gossip told you that a mercurial Singer was about to get replaced on a film set.
Just a few hours later, director Bryan Singer was, in fact, fired from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody!
Singer is being replaced by director Dexter Fletcher.
Bohemian Rhapsody is the biopic about Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury. Mercury is being played by actor Rami Malek.
Bryan Singer initially claimed that his sudden absence from the set of Bohemian Rhapsody was because he was suffering from health problems… or because someone in his family was suffering from health problems… or something like that. Ha ha. He had a little trouble keeping his story straight.
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Director Bryan Singer:
Fox Fired Me Over Sick Parent
Fired “Bohemian Rhapsody” director Bryan Singer is not copping to charges of bad behavior on the set of his Freddie Mercury biopic, instead saying 20th Century Fox booted him after he prioritized the health of an ailing parent over his film.
“I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first,” Singer said through his lawyer Andrew Brettler of Lavely & Singer.
Production on the film stopped on December 1, with a Singer rep saying a family health matter pulled him away. Fox confirmed the unplanned hiatus citing only Singer’s “unexpected unavailability.” When TheWrap reported on Singer’s firing earlier on Monday, numerous insiders said Singer was exhibiting a string of troubling behavior stemming mostly from prolonged absences and lateness.
As for those health issues… Bryan Singer has been walking around Los Angeles for the past few days, chatting with people and ostensibly healthy. Additionally, Bryan Singer’s parents (he was adopted at birth) are both in New Jersey. If one of them is so terribly sick, why isn’t he with them?
After Singer left the set claiming a health issue, someone filed a lawsuit claiming that he sexually assaulted a child. You can read more about it in this SOLVED blind item: When Your Publicist Abandons You.
There’s your sickness.
Stelliott10 was first with the correct response!
There were several clues in this one. Yes, the singer/Singer clue was sneaky! Describing him as “mercurial” hinted at Freddie Mercury, the subject of Bohemian Rhapsody. Kudos to Afternoondelight for catching those clues!
