According to the lawsuit, Lee hired Carballo to perform a two-hour massage on April 21, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Chicago while Lee was in town for an annual comic expo called C2E2.

The former Marvel Comics editor in chief visited Chicago in 2017, for what was billed as his final appearance in the Windy City.

Maria Carballo has accused him of behaving inappropriately during two sessions previous year, according to a lawsuit obtained by Los Angeles ABC affiliate station KABC.

According to the lawsuit, she 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".

Lee is being sued by a massage therapist who alleges he sexually harassed her during a scheduled session. However, when the masseuse started to massage Lee, she noticed the faced-down man is touching himself.

She claims she left but after a second session was booked the following day she returned, only to allege that Lee began to fondle himself again.
