Kevin Clash - Voice of Elmo Sex Scandal Continues As Kevin Clash Receives Further Accusations After Resignation

Having left his long-term tenure as the voice of Elmo, resigning from his post after 28 years of service to Sesame Street in light of sexual abuse scandals, Kevin Clash has been hit with yet another accusation of underage sex. 

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, according to Reuters, a man identified only as 'John' alleges Kevin Clash engaged in oral sex and other sex acts with him when 'John' was 16 years old. The suit seeks at least $75,000 in damages. Clash's publicist, Risa B. Heller, said in an emailed statement, "Mr. Clash believes the lawsuit has no merit". The suit also alleges the following; that the incident or incidents occurred in 2000 or 2001 when John, who is from Florida, visited New York for modeling opportunities; that John came to know Clash through a telephone chat line for homosexuals; and that Clash claimed to be a 30-year-old named Craig, while he was in fact 40. 

Clash, now 52, resigned on November 20 from Sesame Workshop after nearly 30 years on the show. His resignation came the same day Cecil Singleton filed a claim seeking more than $5 million in damages from Clash. Singleton claims he met the then-32-year-old puppeteer in 1993 in a gay chat room when he was 15.
