Nurses caring for Stan Lee at his Los Angeles home allegedly accuse him of groping and harassment.
Reports suggest that the 95-year-old comic legend who lost his wife of 69 years, Joan in July at 93 years old is in a legal war with a nursing company after allegedly harassing its employees who take care of him in his Los Angels home. Its alleged that he asked for oral sex in the shower and to be “pleasured” in his bedroom.
“He doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter,” a source reported. “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.”
The source added, “He’s also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan.”
A rep for the nursing company confirmed several nurses have complained and the owner of the company has spoken to Lee directly, but the company stopped working for him at the end of 2016.
“Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character,” his lawyers statement read “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.”
However, there have been no reports of sexual harassment of the staff of the new nursing company working for Lee. A rep of the new nursing home went ahead to confirm that he has been “polite, kind and respectful” to their staff.
