Stan Lee’s one-time business manager Keya Morgan has been charged with submitting a phoney police report earlier this month. The businessman is facing  including two counts of filing a false report of an emergency, as well as two counts of filing a false report of a crime. Morgan will also be arraigned for violating his probation; all of the charges are misdemeanours. 

Additionally, Lee has been granted a temporary restraining order against his former employee two days after he was arrested, with a court date set for a permanent order in the near future. The mastermind behind the Marvel Comics universe cites elderly abuse as the reason for this legal estrangement. 

Morgan recently took to Twitter to denounce any claims of abuse. “For over 10 years I have shown nothing but love, respect & kindness to Stan Lee, & his wife, a fact he has repeated countless time. I have NEVER EVER abused my dear friend. Everything you read in the #FakeNews is pure malicious lies & I will 100% prove it. The truth will come out,” he tweeted.
