Elmo Sex Scandal: Third Underage Boy Sues Former Elmo Star Over Alleged Sex Acts
Kevin Clash has already resigned his job as the voice of Elmo, but the lawsuit hits keep on coming. He left his Sesame Street job after a second underage accuser came forward. According to TMZ, a third just filed suit.
The accuser is now 28 but claims that when he was 16, and Kevin was around 40, Kevin plied him with alcohol and engaged in sex acts with him, including "oral sex and digital penetration of [the alleged victim’s] anus." The creepiest part is that this allegedly happened in Kevin’s New York City apartment, which was filled with Elmo dolls and photos of famous people like Tyra Banks and Beyonce. This accuser also stayed in touch with Kevin afterward. But now he wants unspecified damages.
How many more people will be coming forward, now that the dominos are falling and everyone wants a piece of whatever settlement they can get?
