In what is quite possibly the most shocking reveal of the day, Co-creator of Marvel comics, Stan Lee has been accused of sexual misconduct. Multiple women have come forward to accuse the ninety-five-year-old Lee of sexual misconduct, with the comic book guru making a statement through his legal team that the accusations are “categorically” false. Stan Lee is accused of sex abuse by a nursing company employed to care for him, and stopped working with him after a string of complaints. Along with that, Young female nurses have complained he that demanded oral sex from them, groped them, and walked around naked.
Lee’s lawyers have sent a cease and desist letter to the company which employs the women, accusing it of defaming Lee.Here’s the official statement from Stan Lee by way of his lawyer, Tom Lallas:
“Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character.
We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled.
Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will 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.”
Because of the accusations, A new nursing company, Vitale Nursing Inc., has stepped in to handle Lee’s care, and rep Julie Wozniak claims that Lee has been “polite, kind and respectful,” and that “It has been a privilege to care for him.”
A source defending Lee stated,
“People think because of Stan’s age he’s an easy target and he can be forced into giving them money.
I don’t believe these allegations…Stan is being taken advantage of.”
Time will tell how things will turn out for Mr.Lee
