i don't have one. it was so long ago.. but both parties were incredibly ridiculous... and Singer was known for being incredibly arrogant at the time. Rebecca, Ian, Halle, and Alan all spoke out against him as well.. Ian specifically was quoted as saying something about how he hopes to never be invited to a singer event for how boring he is (or something like that).
you just don't break a contract to do another film like he did... (and then try to steal cast members away to) he also tried to get shawn and famke. but James was the only one to go along
He's good friends with the x-men producer Lauren Schuler Donner (aka Richard Donner director of superman's wife) so... me thinks she promised him a chance to direct supes, and he ditched fox for it. and she's probably the one to mend things with Bryan and Tom
