Stan Lee is in some hot water
Marvel creator Stan Lee has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women, according to the DailyMail.
Lee, who is 95, is alleged to have harassed the young nurses who care for him at his Hollywood Hills home.
Lee is being accused of asking for oral sex from his nurses. He’s also being accused of walking around nude and asking nurses to pleasure him.
The nurses haven’t yet filed any criminal charges, but the company that employed these women is now in a legal battle with Lee.
A lawyer representing Lee released a statement. Lee is “categorically” denying all of these charges, calling it a “shakedown.”
Here is the full statement:
“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.”
Meanwhile, Vitale Nursing Inc., another nursing company that works with Lee, said that they had no complaints about Lee, calling him “polite, kind, and respectful.”
Lee, who created some of the most iconic comic book characters, like Spiderman, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four, is no longer president and chairman of Marvel.
