The ongoing saga that is Stan Lee’s personal life took a recent twist.
For several months now, various allegations and rumours have surfaced surrounding the Marvel Comics icon.
Chief among which was talk that Lee was the subject of elder abuse, which saw The Man release a video calling people out for, what Stan called, horrendous slander. The video also saw him threaten to “sue the ass off” anybody who was propagating the rumours.
The twist to it all came courtesy of Stan’s official Twitter account.
The comic book icon stated;
“Today was the first day I ever did a tweet myself. Before today, my account was done by others.”
The most worrying thing about the comment was, “I still do not have control of my Facebook. Someone else is doing it, NOT me.”
For a while now, fans had assumed Stan was writing on social media on a daily basis, however, that clearly hasn’t been the case. And Stan Lee does not seem too happy about the whole situation, and almost warning fans about it all.
In subsequent tweets, Stan wrote;
“Help! Someone has hijacked my Facebook and Instagram. I want everyone to know whoever is writing them is a fraud and is impersonating me. How do I get them back? Can you guys help?”
“From now on, I will depend on you, my dear fans, to protect and defend me. I love you guys and am so happy I have control of my twitter account back. You guys are my true superheros.
This is the latest twist in the ongoing and somewhat hostile environment that the movie cameo aficionado has found himself in. There have been elder abuse allegations made against Stan’s daughter, J.C. Lee with a notarized declaration by Stan Lee that indicated three men, one of whom is his current primary caregiver, Keya Morgan. The individuals had tried to take advantage of J.C. in an attempt to gain control of Stan’s “assets, property and money.”
Stan released a video shortly thereafter, which was recorded by Keya Morgan by the way, and Stan insisted that he actually had a great relationship with J.C. and with his “friend” Morgan – though, fans have made comments about the nature of Morgan online.
On top of all of that, Stan was also recently admitted (and subsequently released) from hospital; one of his associated had been accused of stealing some $300,000 from Stan’s bank account – and using a further $850,000 to buy themselves a condominium, courtesy of Stan Lee; and that same person is alleged to have forged an order for a nurse to extract several vials of Lee’s blood, which has been reportedly used to create ink to sign several comic books.
As you do.
Plus, he’s been accused of sexual misconduct by a couple of former nurses – Stan’s attorney had dismissed these claims as part of an elaborate extortion scheme.
Despite all of that, Stan’s still making the occasional comic convention appearance and cameos in Marvel movies.
There’s no stopping this man!
