Fourth man sues former voice behind Sesame Street's Elmo

BETTER TIMES: Elmo with puppeteer and voice actor Kevin Clash

FOR THE fourth time, the former voice behind beloved Sesame Street puppet Elmo has been accused of having a sexual relationship with an underage boy.

Known only as ‘John Doe’, the accuser claims that he had a sexual relationship with puppeteer Kevin Clash when he was 16 or 17 while Clash was in his mid-30s.

Doe is alleged to be suing Clash.

In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Clash, 52, is accused of causing Doe emotional, mental and psychological damage because of their encounter.

It is alleged that Clash – who quit his job on Sesame Street in November after being accused of having sexual relationships with two underage boys – flew Doe into New York where they had an encounter of a sexual nature.

Jeff Herman, who is Doe’s attorney, told TMZ: “According to our lawsuit, Kevin Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests.”
