Bryan Singer is pulling out of future press events for X-Men: Days of Future Past so as not to distract from the “extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved,” the embattled director said Thursday in a statement. In it, he also called sexual abuse allegations against him “outrageous, vicious and completely false.”

It was the first in-his-own-words reaction from Singer since Michael Egan, now 31, filed a lawsuit in a Hawaii federal court alleging that the director drugged and raped him as a teen at parties in Los Angeles and Hawaii.

Singer’s statement, in its entirety:

The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from X-Men: Days of Future Past. This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I’ve decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support.
