Keya Morgan, the one-time partner, and business manager of comic book legend Stan Lee has recently been charged with multiple counts of elder abuse. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Elder Abuse Charges
Currently, Keya Morgan is facing three felony counts of embezzlement, theft, forgery, or fraud against an elderly person, along with one misdemeanor count of elder abuse. He has also been charged with another felony count, false imprisonment of an elder adult. These charges were filed in Los Angeles County. Keya Morgan was also charged last year with falsely reporting a crime and falsely reporting an emergency, and also a probation violation.
According to papers filed with the court, Adult Protective Services officials and law enforcement went to Stan Lee’s home in May of 2018 for a welfare check. While Lee was being interviewed, Morgan allegedly arrived at the home, and the security guards declined to let him in. Morgan then reportedly made a false 911 call, claiming that three unidentified burglary suspects were in his friend’s home and had locked everybody out of the house. Later on that night, Morgan dialed 911 again and accused a security guard at Lee’s home of assaulting them with a deadly weapon, according to documents filed in court.
The recent documents filed by Lee’s attorneys allege that Morgan isolated Lee from his family and friends. It was also alleged that Morgan moved Lee out of his home and into a condominium and exerted undue influence over him.
This is an ongoing matter that has not yet been resolved. There will likely be more information released as the case progresses.
