Another alleged victim comes forward against Stan Lee.
As we reported on Tuesday, the Marvel creator is being accused of sexual assault and harassment by the nurses caring for him at his Hollywood Hills home.
Allegedly, the 95-year-old comic legend “has groped some of the women,” “asks them for oral sex in the shower,” “wants to be pleasured in his bedroom,” “uses the word pussy and fuck in their presence,” and “walks around naked.” Lee’s attorney Tom Lallas calls the claims “false and despicable,” and suggests the women are trying to extort his client.
On Thursday, the writer is being accused yet again of sexual misconduct for an incident that presumably happened in April 2017 when he attended The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2).
Allegedly, Lee “groped” a masseuse at an unnamed Chicago hotel, asked her for sex, and when she refused, he allegedly began masturbating in front of her.
According to a DailyMail.com source:
“The woman claims Stan’s manager Max [Anderson] arranged for the massage in his hotel room and when she arrived they were both intoxicated… She claims Stan was out of control, he groped her and asked her for sex which the woman refused… He then started to masturbate while she was massaging him. She made a complaint to his people and apparently has demanded money, there’s been a lot of meetings about it behind the scenes.”
Apparently, his alleged inappropriate behavior “has been going on for years,” and the source thinks no one should use his age as an excuse.
“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.”
In a similar statement to the one previously mentioned, Lee’s lawyer Lallas says:
“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… This 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.”
So, so disturbing…
