Kevin Clash - Kevin Clash Hit With New Lawsuit

Embattled puppeteer Kevin Clash has been hit with a new lawsuit over allegations the former Sesame Street star had underage sex with a teenage boy.

The man behind beloved character Elmo is being sued by Kevin Kiadii, who claims he became sexually involved with Clash in 2004 after meeting the star on a telephone chat line when he was just 16 years old.

Kiadii also alleges Clash served him alcohol before they engaged in intercourse, and now he has filed papers at New York's District Court seeking unspecified damages for sexual abuse, as well as the cost of legal fees, according to TheWrap.com.

An excerpt of the legal complaint reads, "(Kiadii) suffered severe injuries, including but not limited to mental, psychological and emotional trauma. These injuries are continuing and permanent (in) nature."

The 52 year old resigned from Sesame Street in November (12) after two accusers came forward with similar underage sex claims.
