Honolulu - 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.

Singer's lawyer, Marty Singer, told The Associated Press on Friday that the director was in Toronto working on his first major studio film from August through October 1999.

A lawsuit filed by a former child model says Singer abused him several times during that span.

A lawyer for Michael Egan III, who filed the lawsuit, did not immediately respond to phone calls seeking comment.

The lawsuit was filed under a Hawaii law that temporarily suspends the statute of limitations in sex-abuse cases.
