The 95-year-old is accused of groping young, female nurses.

Stan Lee, the creator of the Marvel comic books, has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by his nurses. 

The 95-year-old reportedly groped and harassed the young, female nurses who care for him inside his Hollywood Hills Home. According to a rep from the nursing company who employs the women, Lee also asked for oral sex in the shower, would often walk around naked and said he wanted to be "pleasured" in the bedroom.

An unnamed source close to Lee confirmed the situation and Lee's increasingly inappropriate behavior.

"Stan is an old man who has seemingly lost his way," the source said. "He doesn't seem to care what people think of him, he's lost his filter. There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny."

"He walks around naked and is vulgar towards the women, he asks them for oral sex in the shower and wants to be pleasured in his bedroom. He uses the word p***y and f**k in their presence."

"He's also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it's unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan," the source said. "The owner at the nursing company has openly said to people that Stan has sexually harassed every single nurse that has been to the house. That got back to Lee and sparked this whole thing."

"It appears the owner, who has nursed Stan herself, eventually decided enough was enough."

A rep for the company confirmed that the owner had, in fact, received several complaints from nurses who worked at Lee's house. She also confirmed that she discussed the harassment directly with Lee.

Lee's lawyer said he "categorically denies" the allegations and believes they're part of a shakedown. 

"Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character," a statement from his lawyer reads. "We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled."

"Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media. Mr Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong."

His lawyer is right. There is no formal police complaint or lawsuits filed. A new nursing company has stepped in to care for Lee, though it's not clear why he needs 24/7 care. 

Nurses from the new company say he's been nothing but "polite, kind and respectful" to them.
