Kevin Clash facing second lawsuit

After dodging a lawsuit from an aspiring model claiming that he engaged in an inappropriate sexual relationship with him while he was a minor, the voice of Elmo is facing similar accusations again. Kevin Clash, 52, is facing an arraignment from a man in his 30s that claims Clash preyed on him when he was 15-years-old. According to the accuser, who is remaining anonymous, the two met on a gay phone chat line back in 1993 when he was underage and Clash was 32.

Legal documents from the man state that “Clash groomed [the accuser] to gain his trust by, among other things, taking him to nice dinners and giving him money.” Furthermore he claims that the Sesame Street star was “preying on teenage boys to satisfy his depraved sexual interests” and 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 is demanding $5 million from Clash.

As previously reported Clash’s first accuser Sheldon Stephens recanted and claimed that he and the pupeteer did indeed have a relationship, but only after he was of legal age.  -danielle canada

  • Only telling the truth

    My thing why do you wait til your 30 to report something like this and AFTER someone does it and gets paid? The fact that this man waits like 20 years and then asks for 5 million dollars is just iffy to me. This kind of stuff is what sickens me instead of looking for justice they are looking for money. From experience of a friend who was raped she DID NOT WANT MONEY she wanted to see the sick bastard behind bars or even worse. She didn’t want to be bought she wanted to bring justice. Sad world.
