Keya Morgan, who has been Stan Lee's manager for several months, has taken advantage of the 95-year-old's vulnerability, his former lawyer Tom Lallas claims.

Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has been granted a restraining order against his business partner/caregiver, Keya Morgan, who is under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department on allegations of elder abuse, according to multiple reports.


Tom Lallas, a lawyer, who is now the legal guardian of Lee and asked a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge for the restraining order against Morgan, ABC News confirmed on Wednesday.


According to a statement of facts filed with the request for the restraining order obtained by ABC News, Morgan, a memorabilia collector, inserted himself in Lee's life as his caregiver after Lee's wife Joan died in July. 

Mr. Morgan's behavior, including, but not limited to, isolation and undue influence, places Mr. Lee's well-being at risk. He has been denied contact with his family members and other individuals that he has known and trusted for years.

The restraining order request was filed two days after Morgan was arrested on suspicion of filing a false report to police, according to the outlet. He was released from jail on $20,000 bail. 


Days before his arrest, a weird 45-second video was posted to Lee's Twitter in which he states that Morgan was the only person with whom he now worked and allowed to represent him, which stated: "My only partner and business manager is @KeyaMorgan, not all the other people making false claims." 


The LAPD's investigation began in February, but it only became public knowledge on Wednesday.
