Keya Morgan, the former manager for Marvel icon and Disney Legend Stan Lee, has been charged with elder abuse and a warrant is out for his arrest, according to Deadline.
- The charges facing Morgan include one felony count of false imprisonment of an elder adult, three felony counts of theft, embezzlement, and forgery or fraud against an elder adult, along with the initial elder abuse misdemeanor count.
- Morgan took control of Lee’s personal and business affairs in February 2018 and allegedly isolated the comics legend from family and friends.
- If Morgan is found guilty of the five counts of elder abuse, which were filed on May 10, he could be facing up to ten years in prison.
- Morgan reportedly embezzled or misappropriated $5 million of Lee’s assets according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court in 2018.
- The relationship between Lee and Morgan first became public when Lee released a video in June 2018, in which he said he and Morgan were working together and conquering the world.
- Lee was later granted a three-year restraining order against Morgan after the financial advisor was arrested for filing a false police report, allegedly concerning a supposed break-in at Lee’s home.
- The L.A. County District Attorney’s office told Deadline they did not have any information to provide on the charges facing Morgan.
- Lee passed away in November 2018, leaving behind a legacy unlike any in the world of comics.
