The second young man accusing Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with him when he was underage explains his motives for waiting nearly a decade before coming forward...
In a press conference Cecil Singleton explains,
"Many of you, I’m sure, may question my motive for waiting a near decade before coming forward. The truth is, in retrospect, it has occurred to me as an adult how truly inappropriate my relationship with Kevin was."
"But another sad truth is that I was sexualized at a very early age and while Kevin may have been the oldest man I’d ever been with at the time he was not the only older man I’d been with."Cecil Singleton is suing Kevin Clash for $5 million. The first accuser, Sheldon Stephens, retracted his initial allegations after receiving a $125,000 settlement. Sheldon has since retracted his retraction.
