AceShowbiz - Fans are not immediately relieved after Stan Lee issued a denial regarding elderly abuse claims against his daughter J.C. Lee. Following the reports, a video emerged of the comic-book writer struggling to write his name during a signing event.
In the video, Lee gave his autographs at Silicon Valley Comic Con which was held this past weekend. The 95-year-old executive producer of Marvel's superhero films was seen being repeatedly told by his friend and representative at the show, Keya Morgan, how to spell his name.
A fan named Samuel Tong, who was attending the event, shared an account of what he witnessed at the event. "I admit I was excited at meeting the jolly 'Excelsior!' Stan Lee but instead he was every bit the tired 95 year old man he is and should be at this point with everything going on," he wrote, adding that Lee had to take a nap before continuing to give his autographs, which annoyed the staff.
When he finally got to the front table, he saw Lee looking "very tired and frail," adding that "Stan didn't talk at all." The fan continued, "What was weird is that his handler kept telling him how to sign his name like 'WRITE S-T-A-N-L-E-E' like he's going senile or something (is he?). And, they told us not to talk to him or say hi or anything."
"Anyway, I hope Stan can get a good rest after this. He deserves it after giving us all a world of happiness," he concluded.
Another fan similarly said, "I was in both lines on Friday so I did get a signature and a photo. Didn't know the condition of Stan until we were in the curtain area. People in front of us had many items to sign and were rude about the ink color and signature placement, Stan was not happy and it made the lines so unbearably long. Didn't understand why there was no limit on tickets or items for Stan to sign (per person), they also took walk ups if you had cash money. Stan had to get help spelling his name right before he took a break, perhaps this chapter should close."
The video emerges after The Hollywood Reporter reported that Lee signed a document on February 18, 2018 in which he accused three men, Jerardo "Jerry" Olivarez (Lee's primary caregiver at the time), Keya Morgan (Lee's current primary caregiver) and Kirk Schenck (J.C. Lee's attorney) of taking advantage of J.C. in an attempt to "gain control over my assets, property and money." The document was signed at the office of his then-attorney Tom Lallas. A few days later, however, Lallas was out as Lee's attorney.
Morgan later released a video in which Lee denied the accusations against his daughter J.C. and Morgan. In the video, the 95-year-old former Marvel Comics chairman called the document "totally incorrect, inaccurate, misleading and insulting."
