Comic legend Stan Lee is suing his former business manager for elder abuse and fraud.
According to Deadline, the suit, lodged with the Los Angeles Superior Court against Jerardo Olivarez, is prompted by a number of factors which came into play following Lee’s wife’s death late last year. At that point he was targeted by “unscrupulous businessmen, sycophants and opportunists” which, according to Lee in the suit, included Olivarez.
The suit alleges only a few days after Joan Lee’s death, Olivarez fired Lee’s long-time banker and attorney and transferred $4.6 million out of Lee’s bank account without permission. In addition, Olivarez allegedly convinced Lee to sign over power of attorney and appoint Uri Litvak, Olivarez’ own lawyer, as Lee’s new attorney.
