Stan Lee, the legendary creator of comic book empire Marvel, has been accused of harassing and groping several nurses who cared for him in his LA home in 2016.
The nursing company Lee employs is currently in a legal dispute with the 95-year-old Marvel creator after several nurses have alleged Lee asked for oral sex and to be 'pleasured,' The New York Post reports.
A source has since told Daily Mail, 'He doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter.
'There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny.'
The source further added, 'He’s also very handy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behaviour, especially from an icon like Stan.'
A representative from the nursing company has confirmed several nurses complained about Lee's behaviour and has since cut ties with the Hollywood star.
Lee's lawyer has responded to the allegations with a statement that reads: 'Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character.
'We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled. 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.
'Mr Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.'
The rep for the new nursing company that Lee has been using claims the Marvel creator has been nothing but 'polite, kind and respectful' to their staff.
Lee is responsible for some of the world's most iconic characters, including Spider-Man, The Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Thor, the X-Men, Iron Man and many more.
His wife of 69 years, Joan, passed away in July last year at 93 years old.
