Marvel's Stan Lee Accused of Lewd Behavior

Marvel's Stan Lee Accused of Lewd Behavior

The Marvel honcho and his former assistant - Max Anderson - have been sued by Chicago-based massage therapist Maria Carballo, who claims Stan tried sexually gratifying himself during two sessions.

Citing assault, battery and other counts, Carballo is seeking a judgment "in excess of $50,000, plus an award of punitive damages, and attorneys' fees and costs as permitted under the statute".

Lee, 95, denied the allegations through his attorney Jonathan Freund, who told the Chicago Tribune that his client was shocked by the allegations.

The second therapeutic massage started at round 10pm and Carballo says Lee started to moan once more when she massaged his thighs main her to name the session off. According to the complaint, Lee stood up, naked and angry, and demanded that Carballo continue the massage. She allegedly returned for the second session only after Lee apologized through her employer, during the session she claims that he moved her foot towards his genitals which made her leave again.

Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee attends a tribute event "Extraordinary: Stan Lee" at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, U.S., August 22, 2017. She says he behaved inappropriately during two massages in 2017.




"Not long thereafter, [Carballo] told her daughter and best friend about what happened but was fearful that, in light of Lee's wealth and status, reporting the incident to the police would hurt her job", the lawsuit states.

"He is rich and famous".

"After seeing other women fight to be treated with dignity and respect, I decided, me too", the masseuse stated. Earlier, Carballo was afraid of speaking out against the renowned personality that the recent outrage against sexual harassment strengthened her. While she was giving him the massage, she alleges that the 95-year-old began to fondle himself.

It was at this level she claims Lee grabbed her foot and rubbed it towards his penis and scrotum. Even so, Carballo admitted that she still feels "nervous and afraid", though it had died down a bit because of the people who are behind her.

Neither Lee or his attorney immediately responded to HuffPost's request for comment. Before she got on the elevator, Lee's assistant allegedly gave her a big tip in cash.
