Kevin Clash, known until recently as the voice and puppeteer of Elmo, finds himself facing underage sex accusations from a fourth alleged victim in the sex scandal that won’t die. The newest accuser claims he was 16 at the time of the activity according to a Dec. 10 report from Huffington Post. Clash resigned from his duties in November amidst allegations of underage sex with several men.
The latest lawsuit was discovered by NBC News and was filed on Monday by a man identified as John Doe. According to court paperwork, Clash made the acquaintance of the 16-year-old boy in 1995 when Clash was in his 30s. The lawsuit claims that Clash flew the boy from Miami to New York where the pair participated in sexual activities.
Jeff Herman, w well-known sex abuse lawyer is representing three of the alleged victims including the most recent man. In a statement Herman said that “Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests.”
Earlier accusers include another John Doe who came forward last month with accusations that Clash had sex with him in 2000 when he was 16. Cecil Singleton, 24, filed a suit the week before that claiming he and Clash had inappropriate contact when Singleton was only 15.
The first accuser also claimed he had underage sex with Kevin Clash but later recanted. He then recanted the denial claiming he had been pressured by Clash’s attorneys to settle.
Clash continues to deny all of the allegations without getting into the specifics of any of the cases.
