LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police have now opened an investigation into reports of elder abuse against Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee.
Los Angeles police investigation reveals in a restraining order granted on Wednesday shows officials have opened a case against a man who has been acting as Lee’s business manager and personal adviser.
The restraining order says Keya Morgan, the former adviser, has inserted himself into the life of the 95-year-old Stan Lee.
It accuses Keya Morgan of taking advantage of Stan Lee’s impaired hearing, vision and judgment, moving the 95-year-old from his longtime family home and preventing Stan Lee’s family and associates from contacting him.
Keya Morgan was arrested on Monday for allegedly filing a false police report by calling 911 saying robbers were in his house when it was actually authorities that were there conducting a welfare check on 95-year-old Stan Lee.
Attempts to reach Keya Morgan by the AP Wednesday were not immediately successful.
The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Stan Lee has been granted a temporary restraining order against Morgan, authorities told THR. The request for a permanent order is 43 pages long. A court date to decide that request is set for July 6.
The restraining order request was filed two days after Morgan was arrested on suspicion of filing a false report to police. Keya Morgan was released from jail on $20,000 bail.
Former Lee attorney Tom Lallas is now acting as Guardian Ad Litem for Lee.
