A third man accusing Sesame Street actor Kevin Clash of inappropriate sexual relations has written about their encounters in his memoirs.
And from the snippets we’ve seen, courtesy of New York Post, they are not for the faint-hearted. The man, who refuses to be named, has claimed that the encounter between him and Clash took place in a Manhattan apartment in 2000 and has stated, in a lawsuit that he was 16 at the time.
In Chapter 11 of his unpublished memoir, he wrote that Clash “showed me what it felt like to get on your knees and obey your man.” The excerpt was recited by the lawyer Jeff Herman at a press conference at the Hilton Midtown. He continued reading: “Mr. Tickler is what I will call him, and the game we played was father and son… On our first night, I did not lose my virginity; however, I learned what it felt like to have a man kiss you and take your breath away.” Is your skin crawling yet?
Jeff Herman has also claimed that other alleged victims have come forward and he has said that he is investigating the validity of their claims. This third, unnamed accuser claims that he met Kevin Clash in a chatroom and was invited to stay at the Elmo actor’s Upper West Side apartment. The accuser stated “I am only coming forward in support for the two victims that were accused as liars” and maintained that Kevin is “an incredible man.”
