A civil lawsuit for sexual assault against the canadian filmmaker Paul Haggis has encouraged three other women to denounce the recipient of an Oscar.


One of the new complainants alleged that Mr. Haggis was forced to have him a blowjob, after which he allegedly sexually assaulted her.


Another woman told the Associated Press that before she could escape, Mr. Haggis had told him : “I need to be in you.


Counsel for the director, a native of London, Ontario, has denied that bulk of these allegations.


He had replicated the civil lawsuit in the seeking itself a lawsuit, which is pending.


Paul Haggis won an Oscar for the movie Crash.
