The 95-year-old comic book legend, Stan Lee is the latest high profile figure to be accused of sexual misconduct. According to reports by the Daily Mail, several female nurses have accused him of repeated groping and harassing them while caring for him at his Hollywood home.
Daily Mail reports a “source with knowledge of the situation” said Lee had sexually harassed nurses, speaking to them inappropriately and groping some of them. The nursing company was quoted as saying that its owner had “received several complaints from nurses who had worked at Lee’s house and that she had complained directly to Lee.”
The nursing company which employs the women and caters for celebrities and high end clients is now in a legal dispute with icon Lee.
Lee is the former president and chairman of Marvel and co-creator of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, the X-Men, Hulk among many other beloved comic book heroes.
Lee’s lawyer Tom Lallas stated that Lee ‘categorically denies’ the ‘false and despicable’ allegations and fully intends to clear his ‘stellar good name’ and suggested the allegations could be part of a shakedown.
