Kevin Clash has been sued by a 4TH accuser ... who claims he also had a sexual relationship with the former voice of Elmo while he was a minor ... TMZ has learned. 

We've learned ... the accuser, who filed the lawsuit in federal court in NY under the name John Doe, claims he first met Clash in Miami Beach in 1995 or 1996 ... while Doe was 16 or 17 and Clash was in his mid '30s. 

Doe claims ... Clash eventually flew him out to NYC and gave him money and a place to stay. During the trip, Doe claims the two had sex on multiple occasions.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Doe claims he's suffered tremendous emotional, mental and psychological damage as a result of the relationship.

TMZ spoke to Doe's attorney, Jeff Herman, who tells us, "According to our lawsuit, Kevin Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests."

Of Clash's 4 accusers, only 3 have filed lawsuits. The first accuser struck a settlement with Clash and agreed not to pursue litigation.

We reached out to Clash for comment -- no word back.

There should be a statute of limitations on this kind of crap. All these accusers are claiming this happened in the 90s. Why did they need 15-20 years to decide to sue? I think that you should have no more than 3-5 years to file suit from the time you become an adult. Our society considers adults sleeping with minors so terrible that just the accusation will tarnish a person's reputation for life. Because of that, anyone falsely accusing someone of this crime should be punished extremely harshly.

Kris Jenner and Kim K = money hungry plastic sellouts.    

yes 16, 17 is a minor, but i think theyre "old enough" in the head to know what theyre doing.
if they were 12-15 thatd be disgusting, but 17, these "kids' know what the eff theyre doing sexually. not saying theyre smart though.

Where are the parents of these boys, and how are they able to get on a plane and fly across country as minors?

These poor low self esteem kids need to get help. They knew what they were getting into. Sorry but if your 16 and throwing your self at a grown ass man, I don't feel one bit of remorse. And its a shame Mr Clash went along with it, either way.

Sad that it went on, but I'm sure a lot of people will try to take advantage of the situation. Always someone trying to make a buck.
