Kevin Clash -- known as the voice of Elmo -- is facing NEW allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a SECOND underage boy ... TMZ has learned. 

The accuser -- who is now in his 30s -- has filed a lawsuit against Clash ... claiming the two met on a gay phone chat line back in 1993 ... when the accuser was 15 years old and Clash was 32.

In the suit, the accuser reveals his name -- Cecil Singleton. His attorney also provided TMZ with a photo.

Cecil Singleton

Among the allegations, Singleton claims, "[Clash] trolled gay telephone chat line rooms to meet and have sex with underage boys."

In the lawsuit, filed in federal court in NYC, Singleton claims Clash "groomed [the accuser] to gain his trust by, among other things, taking him to nice dinners and giving him money."

Singleton claims while Clash was featured on "Sesame Street," he was "preying on teenage boys to satisfy his depraved sexual interests."

In the suit, Singleton claims ... although the sex occurred nearly 20 years ago, he didn't take action until now because ... he "did not become aware that he had suffered adverse psychological and emotional effects from Kevin Clash's sexual acts and conduct until 2012."

Singleton is demanding more than $5 million.

We broke the story, Clash struck a settlement with a previous accuser who initially claimed he had a sexual relationship with Kevin beginning when he was 16 years old. As part of the settlement, the accuser issued a statement recanting his claims.

Kevin Clash was not only the voice of Elmo - Kevin Clash was the succulent lips, agile tongue, moist mouth and glorious swallow of Elmo too!

So he didn't believe he'd been mentally scarred by having consensual sex until he realised Kevin Clash had a bit of money and there was some to be made from his ordeal? I hate s*** sucking vermin who try to make a quick buck off others backs.

His parents named him "Cecil Singleton"? They may as well have checked the Gay Box on his Birth Certificate with that name. Thanks Mom and Dad - Good One!

If it is found that they are lying, they better be prosecuted to the fulles extent of the law. If it is true, he will get his day in court.

"did not become aware that he had suffered adverse psychological and emotional effects from Kevin Clash's sexual acts and conduct until 2012."


Translation: He did not become aware that the person he prostituted himself to was Elmo until 2012 and now he wants more money.

Two stories, two men and surprise, surprise, man number two has also changed his story like the first. I'm not buying it, none of it.

Clash probably would have been better off not revealing the fact that he was the voice of Elmo. These guys probably didn't know what he did for a living. Now everyone and their mother will have their hands in his wallet. So sad.

I'm not sure if he had a relationship with the first guy while he was underage, but I have a feeling that the second one is full of s**t!

Also, as far as the first guy crying as he signed the papers, it was probably because he realized that his attorney was getting half.

What a load of ...........He trolled gay chat lines?? Really?? I'm pretty sure that those things are for people at least 18 years old. Maybe someone needs to ask this guy what he was doing on the chat line at 15. I find it very sad that people are allowed to say whatever they want as long as it's in the form of a lawsuit just for five seconds of fame.

So why was Singleton hanging out on gay phone sex lines if not looking for a hook up. He looks like a creep.
