Marvel legende Stan Lee zou zijn verplegend personeel hebben betast en oneerbare voorstellen hebben gedaan. Volgens een bron van de Daily Mail zou de 95-jarige onder meer aan verpleegster hebben gevraagd hem te bevredigen tijdens het douchen.
De vrouwen beweren dat Lee hun vaker vastpakte, hen vroeg naar orale seks, in hun bijzijn geheel naakt rondliep in huis en dat hij hen al de nodige keren had gevraagd de nacht met hem door te brengen. De bron vertelde:
“Stan is an old man who has seemingly lost his way. He doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter. There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny. He walks around naked and is vulgar towards the women, he asks them for oral sex in the shower and wants to be pleasured in his bedroom. He uses the word p***y and f**k in their presence. He’s also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan. The owner at the nursing company has openly said to people that Stan has sexually harassed every single nurse that has been to the house. That got back to Lee and sparked this whole thing. It appears the owner, who has nursed Stan herself, eventually decided enough was enough.”
Er is nog geen officiële aanklacht tegen Lee lopende, maar volgens zijn advocaat zijn het allemaal leugens:
“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.”
