Stan Lee finds himself facing more accusations of sexual misconduct after an anonymous nursing company accused the comic book legend of inappropriate behavior earlier this week.
The new accusation comes from a Chicago hotel masseuse who claims Lee groped the female masseuse, demanded sex from her, and then performed a sex act in front of her.
The Daily Mail reports Lee was attending the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) from April 21 through April 23 of last year when he booked massage therapy and assaulted the masseuse.
Unlike the anonymous nursing company, the hotel masseuse is believed to have made a legal complaint.
Daily Mail’s source reports, “The woman claims Stan’s manager Max arranged for the massage in his hotel room and when she arrived they were both intoxicated.” The source then describes Lee’s nasty sex act before continuing, “She made a complaint to his people and apparently has demanded money, there’s been a lot of meetings about it behind the scenes.”
The source then went on to describe Lee’s physical strength and fitness at age 95. “While people might think Stan is a frail and fragile old man, that’s not the case. He’s very strong for his age and still has his wits about him, this kind of behavior has been going on for years and the incident with the masseuse was before his wife died. His age is no excuse.”
Stan’s lawyer Tom Lallas confirmed the latest allegations and once again emphatically denied them.
Mr. Lee categorically denies these allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character. Mr Lee has not offered any money to settle this claim, and no negotiations have ever occurred regarding any payment to this accuser. his accusation is another example of a demand that Mr Lee has received to pay money and threat that if he does not do so, the accuser will hold a press conference and go to the media. Mr Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.
Stan Lee is reportedly worth $50 million. He is currently developing movie and TV projects with his company POW! Entertainment and hold the title of Chairman Emeritus of Marvel.
Stan Lee was married to wife Joan for 70 years before she died in July of last year. He helped create some of Marvel’s most iconic characters including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Incredible Hulk. The Marvel franchise has exploded in recent years and earned $23 billion at the box office.
