Earlier this year, Lee’s daughter, J.C., was granted an elderly abuse restraining order against her dad’s former manager and caretaker, Keya Morgan.
In July, J.C., 68, alleged Morgan kept her from contacting Lee while controlling the comic kingpin’s $50 million fortune.
Despite the concern, Lee insisted at the time that he was no the victim of abuse, and that any claims were “slander” against his “friend” Morgan. The restraining order stood and Morgan was removed from the position.
And last June, Lee was the victim of a scary incident involving two strangers. Armed units reportedly rushed to his house after receiving a 911 call about two suspicious men who were seen outside the house and one of the men allegedly demanded money from the multi-millionaire.
In other signs of chaos during the elderly Lee’s last days, he fired his long time manager, Max Anderson, and his nurse, Linda Sanchez, amid claims of a scheme to drive a wedge between him and his family.
And not long before his death, Lee filed suit against another former manager, Jerardo Olivarez, alleging that while grieving the death of his wife of 70 years, Joan B. Lee, in late 2017, he became the target of “unscrupulous businessmen, sycophants and opportunists.”
Olivarez, claimed Lee, allegedly took control of Lee’s professional and financial affairs and used that access to enrich himself.
