Comic book legend and Marvel founder Stan Lee is in troubled waters after his nurses at his Hollywood Hills home accused him of sexual harassment. "He's also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it's unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan".

A representative for the new nursing company caring for Lee said he has been "polite, kind and respectful" to the nurses.

Tuesday of this week, the outlet published that a nursing company was in legal dispute with Lee after nurses claimed he asked for oral sex in the shower, and to be "pleasured" in his bedroom. She refused and began to carry out the massage she was hired for, only for him to begin masturbating during it.

Lee's wife of 69 years passed away in 2017 at 93-years-old.

Sources told the Mail that Lee enjoys walking around the house naked and uses vulgar language to describe his desires to the nurses.

Stan Lee's lawyer has told the Daily Mail that Stan Lee "categorically denies" the allegations made by the masseuse, and the lawyer insists they are part of "another" shake down for money.

By tea , he had hit six fours and played the lead role in an unbroken partnership of 52 with Murali Vijay , who was 31 not out. But the first two sessions was all about chase the leather for the Indian fielders as the South Africa batsmen made hay.

Lee's legal team says that he completely denies the allegations and that this is merely a "shakedown" - an attempt to extort money from an elderly, wealthy man.

Meanwhile, BleedingCool noted that another set of sexual allegations was hurled against Lee, this time coming from a female massage therapist.

Lee's lawyer Tom Lallas also reportedly sent a cease-and-desist letter to the owner of the nursing company on December 20, accusing the firm of making "defamatory" statements claiming that Lee "sexually harassed one or more of the Nurses who has provided Services at the Lee home".

The statement continued, "Instead, Mr Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media".

But as yet no police complaint has been made and no lawsuits filed.

A source with knowledge of the situation said that Lee "finds it funny" to sexually harass the nurses, who are typically much younger than him. Mr Lee has not offered any money to settle this claim, and no negotiations have ever occurred regarding any payment to this accuser.
