Marvel's Stan Lee accused of sexual harassment by massage therapist

Stan Lee is seen at C2E2 in Chicago in April of 2017. A massage therapist claims he behaved inappropriately during a session while on the trip which Lee denies

Carballo also filed a complaint with Chicago police, who are investigating.

Recalling at the disposal of edition of the documents TMZ writes that a resident of Chicago, Maria Carballo went to court with a lawsuit, which accused the artist of harassment.

The allegations stem from Lee's visit to Chicago for C2E2, an annual comic book expo.

The masseuse said he apologized and requested another massage.

Carballo claims that Lee apologised through her employer and she returned for a second massage appointment the following day, during which she employed a massage technique using the feet instead of hands. "I am not", Carballo said. According to TheWrap, she claims she showed up to the Hyatt Regency hotel to perform a massage on Lee, who she alleges began fondling himself 30 minutes into the session.

Carballo claims that she told the Marvel Comics icon to lie on his back in an attempt to diffuse the situation, but he then began "to moan and groan", at which point Carballo refused to continue the massage. The massage therapist called off the session.

Because of that, Carballo chose to finish the massage early and left the hotel unit. But according to the lawsuit, within an hour he began his shenanigans again and Carballo reverted to massaging him with her feet due to discomfort.

Lee has faced a similar claim before.

Page Six has reached out to Lee's rep for comment.

Carballo's suit says that she feared speaking out about the incident because of Lee's wealth and prominence, but was inspired by the #MeToo movement.
