Elmo Accuser #3 Sues

He Plied Me with Booze

Exclusive Details

Kevin Clash -- the former voice of Elmo -- used alcohol as a precursor to oral sex with an underage boy ... this according to a new lawsuit that has just been filed by a THIRD accuser.

According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan and obtained by TMZ, the alleged victim met Clash on a gay phone chat line when he was 16 and Clash was approximately 40.

The accuser -- now 28 -- says he was in NYC pursuing modeling opportunities when Clash invited him to his swanky NYC apartment, which was strewn with Elmo dolls and photos of Elmo with famous people, including Beyonce and Tyra Banks

During the encounter, the accuser -- who refers to himself as John Doe -- claims Clash plied him with alcohol and "groomed him," and then engaged in sexual contact that included "oral sex and digital penetration of John's anus."

The accuser says Clash stayed in touch with him after the sexual encounter, although no further sexual contact occurred until he became an adult.

The accuser is suing for unspecified damages.

As you know, Clash resigned from Sesame Street hours after the second accuser filed suit.

These people are all famewhores. They used him as much as he used them. I'm going to reserve judgment on the underage thing. It seems all of these freaks were out trolling and probably hit the jackpot with him. I think I would need proof of underage, though.

I find it extremely odd that all of these cases happened only ONCE while underage and the rest while of age? Plus these kids know full well what they are doing and what THEIR own intent is, so this victim ploy is not working for me.

Mr. Clash made a mistake by paying the 1st accuser. If you are innocent don't pay them to go away. I believe you look guilty. These boys knew what they were doing - where were the parents? Clash may have assumed they were of age since minors are not to be on the chat line where they met.

First off Digital means fingers the digits it comes frim latin word in "digitus" which means a finger or a toe so you figure it out..... IF the accusee knew the guy was a molester why would he go back for more as an adult and then mack his accusations this Clash guy should not be allowed near children and should have to register as a sexual offender.......

Digital penetration? Clash may have confused these boys for one of his puppets.

16 years old pursuing a modeling career in NYC, met Voice Elmo on a gay chat line and was illegally drinking enough to be seduced. I guess that whole modeling thing didn't pan out. That would certainly explain the lawsuit. Just like victim #2 who didn't realize that he had been damaged until years later. Just a coinky dink that he realized this after victim # 1 got some serious jack.
