According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, it’s been reported that Stan Lee’s former business manager has been charged with multiple accounts of elder abused related to the late Marvel icon and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The Los Angeles Superior Court told THR that Keya Morgan was charged with multiple counts related to elder abuse. According to court documents, these include three felony counts of theft, embezzlement, forgery or fraud against an elder adult and one misdemeanor count of elder abuse.
As of yesterday, it was reported that Morgan is not yet in custody. THR reached out to The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office about the matter who said they had no information to provide.
Morgan’s attorney, Alex Kessel, told The Associated Press that his client is not guilty and he expects him to be exonerated.
Only last year did the manager come under fire when it was found that he was one of a few subjects involved in an investigation surrounding a few suspects who were believed to be fighting for control over the late comic book legend’s life for their own financial gain.
Last summer, legal representatives for Lee filed for a restraining order against Morgan, which was granted.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem these are the only hardships Lee was put through on account of Morgan. According to court documentation, it was found that shortly after Lee’s wife had passed away Morgan was accused of taking control of Lee’s home in the Hollywood Hills and hiring security guards to keep away Lee’s family and friends. He then allegedly moved Lee to a new home that he wasn’t familiar with.
According to MailOnline, it was found that Morgan was arrested on suspicion of making a false police report outside of Lee’s home on May 30. The same day, a welfare check was being conducted and security guards refused Morgan’s entry into the house, which led to him allegedly reporting a burglary in progress.
It is also believed that Morgan is being accused of mishandling more than $5 million of Lee’s money.
