Keya Morgan allegedly mishandled Lee’s money. This included $262,000 that Lee never received from autograph signing sessions.
“Mr.Lee had a large estate worth over an estimated $50 million with no clear protection from opportunists who could insert themselves into his life and take control of it,” the LAPD said on Saturday in a press release.
In June of last year, Morgan removed the 95-year old Marvel Comic Book creator from his Hollywood Hills residence to a condominium in Beverly Hills to gain more control over him, according to the police.
Lee’s lawyers filed a restraining order against Morgan last year, according to TMZ. The criminal investigation into Morgan began in March of last year.
Lee died on November 12, 2018 from pre-existing medical conditions.
Morgan denies the allegations. In a statement to TMZ, he said: “This is a witch-hunt by his daughter and her lawyer against me because she cannot stand the fact Stan likes me so much.”
