Carballo issued an official statement, in which she stated that the so-called #MeToo movement empowered her to file the sexual misconduct suit.

Maria Carballo alleges that she was employed to massage Lee at a hotel room in Chicago in April 2017, according to a complaint filed Monday in Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois.

Carballo said she told her employer she was uncomfortable and didn't want to return for a second session the following day, but was told he was a "VIP" and agreed to go back for fear of losing her job.

Carballo said that when she performed the massage on the now-95-year-old, he allegedly put his hand on his genitals, then began to fondle himself.

Carballo says she was initially afraid to come forward with her story given Lee's wealth and prestige, but "after seeing other women protest in connection with the Me Too movement, plaintiff chose to fight for her dignity by standing up for herself".

Carballo says Lee became angry when she stopped, stood up from the massage table completely naked, and demanded she continue the massage. He is rich and famous.

Carballo returned to Lee's suite to again provide massage therapy, the suit says, but after again massaging his quadriceps, "Plaintiff observed that Lee was once again moaning". "I am still nervous and afraid, but not as much as I was before because I have other people helping me".

Carballo is seeking a judgment "in excess of $50,000, plus an award of punitive damages, and attorneys" fees and costs as permitted under the statute'. Anderson could not be reached for comment on the suit. Lee's representative vehemently denied the nursing company's claims, and countered that the company was engaging in a form of blackmail in an attempt to get money out of the Marvel creator.
