Kevin “Elmo’s Voice” Clash: Another Underage Sex Allegation

Posted Tuesday November 20, 2012 11:55 AM GMT

He dodged the first bullet when he was accused of a sexual relationship with an underage boy earlier this month but now Kevin Clash is facing an additional accuser.

According to a report, a 30-something gay male has come forward and claimed that Clash, who serves as the voice of Elmo, had a sexual relationship with him when he was just 15 years old in 1993.

The new lawsuit claims, “[Kevin] groomed [the accuser] to gain his trust by, among other things, taking him to nice dinners and giving him money."

Furthermore, "[Clash] trolled gay telephone chat line rooms to meet and have sex with underage boys."

As for why he waited until now to bring it up, the accuser says he "did not become aware that he had suffered adverse psychological and emotional effects from Kevin Clash's sexual acts and conduct until 2012."

He wants $5 million for his trouble.
