Keya Morgan faces five counts of abuse, which include fraud, forgery, and false imprisonment of an elder adult. According to court documents, four counts are felony charges, the fifth is a misdemeanor count of elder abuse.

Marvel Comics icon Lee passed away last November at the age of 95. The last few months of his life were marred with conflicting accounts of who was overseeing his affairs.

Reports of Abuse

Just after Lee’s wife Joan passed away in 2017, his lawyer claimed Morgan had “inserted himself into Mr. Lee’s life.” Lee’s family filed a restraining order against Morgan in 2018 citing elder abuse.

Court documents show that Morgan had been accused of taking over Lee’s Hollywood Hills home. He also allegedly hired security guards to deter visits from Lee’s friends and family. He then later moved Lee to a new, unfamiliar condominium, isolating him from his family and caregivers.

It is reportedly believed that Morgan, a New York memorabilia dealer, also mishandled more than $5 million of Lee’s money.

Morgan has yet to comment on the charges, though he denied allegations of abuse last year.
