    According to the complaint, Lee fondled himself during the first massage and moaned so much during the second that Carballo stopped the treatment. Lee stood up and angrily demanded Carballo keep massaging him.

    The complaint also says Carballo was massaging Lee with her feet when he grabbed her foot and touched it to his genitals.
