Stan Lee accused of sexual misconduct by a massage therapist

Stan Lee, one of the pillars of Marvel Comics, has found himself again in hot waters after a massage therapist accused him of sexual misconduct.

The massage therapist named Maria Carballo has filed the lawsuit seeking more than $50,000 in punitive damages and attorney fees from the writer on Monday. According to the complaint, Lee stood up, naked and angry, and demanded that Carballo continue the massage.

KABC has also confirmed that on March 16, a female victim filed a police report alleging that a male client touched her inappropriately while she was performing a duty in related to her occupation. After two refusals, the employer called her to say that Lee had apologised and that there would be no other incidents of that sort.

Lee's attorney told The Chicago Tribune that he was shocked by the allegations and feared a "shakedown".

'The guy is 95, I don't think he would do that, ' Freund said. Carballo immediately became uncomfortable and ended the massage, the suit says.

Carballo says she was initially afraid to come forward with her story given Lee's wealth and prestige, but "after seeing other women protest in connection with the Me Too movement, plaintiff made a decision to fight for her dignity by standing up for herself".

The OPCW experts travelled to Damascus a week ago but were unable visit Douma due to security-related problems. The organisation will now evaluate the situation and consider future steps, including another possible visit.

Comic book and pop culture icon Stan Lee has been accused of a lewd assault in Chicago, and is facing a civil lawsuit.

An hour into the massage on April 22, 2017, Carballo claims Lee began moaning again, at which time she attempted to end the massage.

Because of that, Carballo chose to finish the massage early and left the hotel unit.

Neither Lee or his attorney immediately responded to HuffPost's request for comment. She said he grabbed her foot and rubbed it against his genitals. But before she could leave the premise, Anderson allegedly gave her a lump of cash, which she believed was because he knew of his boss's actions.

"He is rich and famous". "After seeing other women fight to be treated with dignity and respect, I decided, me too". 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. I am not, ' Carballo said in a statement.

Lee's business partner, Keya Morgan, told TMZ that Lee is "completely harmless" and "100 percent innocent".
