The famous director was alleged to have raped the then 17-year-old Cesar Sanchez-Guzman at a Yacht party in Seattle approximately 15 years ago.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, a bankruptcy trustee insisted the court approve to a $150,000 settlement with Singer. As Sanchez-Guzman has officially filed for bankruptcy, the judge hence has to sign off on the settlement.
