A former business partner of Stan Lee, against whom the Marvel creator had a restraining order, has been arrested on charges of elder abuse.
Keya Morgan was apprehended in Scottsdale, Arizona, just a week after the Los Angeles County District Attorney issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of abuse and fraud.
Morgan was taken into custody, but the circumstances surrounding his arrest remain unclear for now.
The claims of abuse date back to June 2018, a month before Lee filed a restraining order against Morgan. While Lee wasn’t named in the charges, the timeline of the accusations align with the same time period in which Lee and his family began distancing themselves from Morgan.
When the charges were announced, Morgan’s attorney stated he believed his client to be innocent.
At the time of the order’s filing, Morgan also claimed in an interview the accusations against him were false.
Stan Lee passed away in November of 2018 at the age of 95.
