Ex-Voice of Elmo

Underage Sex Accuser #3

Kevin Clash is being accused of a third sexual relationship with an underage boy  -- and the former voice of Elmo could be sued as early as Tuesday, according to a report.

The latest accuser claims he was 16 when he engaged in "sexual activity" with Clash back in 2000 -- and alleges they met on a gay chat line.

It's a very similar claim to the one made by accuser #2, Cecil Singleton. TMZ broke the story when Singleton filed suit last week -- and a few hours later Clash resigned from "Sesame Street."

The third accuser's attorney, Jeff Herman, told the NY Daily News his client plans to file a lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court as "John Doe" ... because he doesn't want to go public.

So when you were 16 you joined a gay sex phone chat? If you are going to sue someone, do not admit to engage in illegal behavior. You must be at least 18 years old to be in a sex chat. 21 in some states. If you lied about your age to join a sex chat, why should we believe you that you didn't lie about your age to Kevin Clash?

How can the authorities wade through the people wanting a paycheck via a lie so they'll just tell the same story they hear in the news, and who may actually be telling the truth? If it's all lies, what a mess has been made from it. If it's true, how sad.


Also, I'm confused. So there's only these civil lawsuits asking for money, but so far no one has pressed criminal charges, right?

If these losers are so " psychologically damaged" why not go to police to have Clash punished by the law??? Oh yeah because he has money. If he did it he most definitely should face criminal charges, if he didn't these schmucks who lied in the first place about their age to get on these gay chat lines will get what's coming to them. Karma is a beeyotch.

Poor, poor Kevin. A victim. A hapless target. Perhaps Kevin should have exercised a little self control and not 'diddled' with someone who could have possibly been a teen. Kevin is reaping the rewards of his decisions, and no one else's. Kevin was the adult. Kevin is the one young people relied on for guidance and judgement. Kevin should have known better. I just hope Kevin is never again allowed to hold a position of authority where children will be near him, or look up to him, again. Bye bye Kevin. Don't let the door knob hit ya... Ooops, Kevin would probably like that.

I don't believe any of them. I think Kevin liked young adult men (i.e. 18 or older) which may not be the most brilliant idea in the world, but they were legal. Sadly these guys know if they say they got together a year or so earlier they can try for a money grab.

God bless America! Where else can a 16 yr old pose as an 18yr old, find a man to chat with in a gay chat room, meet and have sex with that man then turn around and sue that man because he had sex with him?

So where is that gay rights organization that screams every time some one appears to be persecuted based on their orientation? Can't one argue that Kevin is in this situation because he felt it was better to "hide" his orientation trolling for dates privately on chat lines rather than publicly and therefore got caught up with boys lying about their age? I thought Joe Q public was supposed to (be forced to) regard being gay as perfectly normal? But this man has lost his career because of his preference...I mean what he can't help or whatever. Just saying.
