Stan Lee Denies New Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct

Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee is being sued by Chicago-based massage therapist Maria Carballo for allegedly sexually harassing and grabbing her during two massage appointments a year ago.

Marvel legend Stan Lee is once again being accused of sexual misconduct, following on from troubling reports that the 95 year old is the victim of an elder abuse scandal.

The lawsuit seeks $50,000 in damages and attorney fees. While the Chicago Police have started an investigation into the matter, Lee's attorney Jonathan Freund has denied all the accusations calling the lawsuit "a shakedown". According to reports, Carballo's complaint says she was working as an independent contractor for Therapy Professionals, which sent her on the assignment to Lee's hotel room.

According to the suit, the massage continued without any issues until Carballo began massaging Lee's quadriceps, after which Lee began "to moan and groan", at which point Carballo made a decision to end the massage.

The therapist advised her boss that she was uncomfortable and did not need to return for a second session with Lee, however she was advised he was a VIP and went again as she feared loosing her job.

Carballo released the following statement to media outlets: "For a long time, I was afraid to ask anyone to help me hold Mr".

She reluctantly agreed but began using her feet instead of her hands for the massage, to keep more distance from Lee. After that, she claims she immediately stopped the massage and left, the lawsuit states.

"He is rich and famous".

She claims she asked Lee to turn over "in an attempt to diffuse the situation", but ended the massage at one hour when Lee "began to moan and groan".

"After seeing other women fight to be treated with dignity and respect, I decided, me too", the masseuse stated.

During the treatment, Carballo claims Stan grabbed her foot and rubbed it against his naked penis and scrotum.

Because of that, Carballo chose to finish the massage early and left the hotel unit. Before she got on the elevator, Lee's assistant allegedly gave her a big tip in cash. 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.
