The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating claims that 95-year-old creator Stan Lee is a victim of elder abuse, according to court documents obtained by the Associated Press. The documents revealing the investigation were discovered in paperwork associated with a restraining order filed against Lee's business manager Morgan this week.
"Morgan has inserted himself into the life of the Lee, 95, according to the restraining order," AP writes. "The filing accuses Morgan, 42, of taking advantage of Lee’s impaired hearing, vision and judgment, moving Lee from his longtime family home and preventing family and associates from contacting him."
The investigation has been underway since "at least February" according to the report.
"Morgan was arrested on Monday for allegedly filing a false police report by calling 911 saying burglars were in his house when in fact two detectives and a social worker were conducting a welfare check on Lee," reports AP.
According to the news agency, Morgan was introduced to Lee by his daughter, J.C. Lee, and "since February has increasingly taken control of Lee's life."
"Detectives said in police reports that in interviews Lee acknowledged that Morgan had helped him," AP writes, "but would frequently forget his name when talking about him."
