National Hockey League team cancels Stan Lee appearance amid sexual harassment allegations

Legendary Marvel creator Stan Lee has been accused of sexual harassment by numerous victims, The Daily Mail reports.

Tuesday saw it claimed by nurses that Stan Lee had groped them and demanded oral sex in the shower at his home in Los Angeles.

However, as of now, no police complaints or lawsuits have been filed.

In response to the allegations, Lee's lawyer said in a statement that his client categorically denies the "false" and "despicable" allegations and that he intends to fight in order to protect his name and "impeccable" character.

Lee attended The Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) on April 21-23 which is when the alleged attack is believed to have happened.

It's further claimed that Stan Lee's road manager, Max Anderson, who has a felony conviction, arranged the meeting for Stan Lee with the masseuse, and when she arrived, she found them both intoxicated, and that "Stan was out of control, he groped her and asked her for sex which the woman refused".

Lallas went on to reveal in the statement that instead of filing a suit, the accusers have been demanding Lee to pay money and threatening that they will go to the media if he refuses to pay. "Mr". Entertainment. He is said to have a personal fortune of $50 million.

On December 20th the owner of the nursing company received a "cease and desist" letter from Lee's attorney, Tom Lallas.

Lee - whose wife of 69 years, Joan, passed away last July, aged 93 - is credited with creating such iconic characters as Spider-Man, Iron Man and the X-Men.

"Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong", Lallas added.

The unnamed company, who employed the nurses, charged Lee $1000 per day to receive in-home nursing care at all hours.

'Mr Lee has not offered any money to settle this claim, and no negotiations have ever occurred regarding any payment to this accuser.

Legendary comic creator Stan Lee is reportedly under fire again as he's accused of masturbating in front of a female masseuse and demanding sex in a Chicago hotel a year ago.
