The new lawsuit, from an anonymous United Kingdom citizen, accuses Singer and Goddard of sexually assaulting the plaintiff in that country. The plaintiff, called “John Doe No. 117” in the complaint, is represented by Jeff Herman, the same attorney who filed civil complaints against Singer, Goddard and two other Hollywood power players last month.

Herman is scheduled to hold a news conference at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills at 2 p.m. Monday.
