Elmo Accuser #3 Sues

He Plied Me with Booze

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.

This goes to show all of you Kevin Clash defenders...just because these gay teens were looking for a sexual encounter online (much like straight ones do), it does not make it ok for a man to have sex or perform sexual acts with underage boys. Many of you think that because they were looking for sex, or because they want money now that somehow it makes it ok for this disgusting individual to do what he did. Shame on all of you....

Awesome     

OMG when will this all be over!?! Why is this still feeling like a money grab to me? Here is one thing tho. He claims Clash had these pics of celebs with Elmo. I hope someone has enough since to put dates with the pictures. That will tell if the John Doe was really there when he was 16 or later as an adult and this is a money grab.

OH, OH, someone is lying here. If this 3rd accuser is saying he was 16 which is approximately 12 years ago and he saw pictures of Beyonce with Elmo strewed around the apartment....He's LYING! Beyonce wasn't popular until 10 years ago and wasn't important enough before that time to take pictures with ELMO! This smells really funky!!
