Stan Lee’s former manager is charged with elder abuse

(CNN) — A man who claimed to be a manager and caretaker for Stan Lee has been charged with abusing the late Marvel Comics legend.

Keya Morgan was charged Friday with multiple counts of elder abuse, including alleged false imprisonment, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Superior Court told CNN. A $300,000 arrest warrant was issued for Morgan’s arrest, the spokesperson said.

CNN has reached out to Morgan for comment.

A memorabilia collector, Morgan reportedly became close to Lee after the death of his wife, Joan Lee, in 2017.

Before his death, Stan Lee was granted a temporary restraining order against Morgan that banned him from abusing, harassing or contacting Lee and required him to stay at least 100 yards away from him.

“Petitioner, along with law enforcement and Adult Protective Services, believes that Mr. Morgan is unduly influencing Mr. Lee and isolating him,” a petition for the restraining order, filed last June by Lee’s former attorney, Tom Lallas, stated.

At the time, Morgan denied the allegations.
