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.

I don't know if this is all true or not, none of us do, and quite frankly it's not really our business to know, but I do think there is a possibility these young men (sorry I don't consider a 17 year old to be a kid) could have lied about their age and he really didn't know. Especially because they were on chat lines which you have to be 18 to be on. Maybe the chat line thing will be his saving grace.

i dont agree with what this douche bag did, but its funny how all these ***s were ok with all that **** before the original accuser came out and seen that he got six figures. Just a bunch of sue happy leeches. if they were so traumatized by the situation why did they wait so long and why are they not just trying to get just criminal charges instead of trying to get money. bunch of human s*** thats why.

There is a difference between little boys and young boys.people talking how he's a perv,but it's normal if a 40 year old man likes 18 year old girls.Please give me a break.those boys probably pretended to be older than they were,nobody raped them nor abused them.accuser

To be fair, it's not a Penn State problem. It's a "Jerry Sandusky problem"--and failing to make that distinction could get you sued...

Poor guy... there will ways be haters. I would whip their asses first then give them shut up money. It would be worth it after he stepped on their heads.
