Over the weekend news leaked that two more young men would be coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash [click here if you missed that].
Guy number three just showed up...
The third accuser, now 29, claims he met Kevin on a gay chat line in 2000 when he was 16.
His lawsuit was filed under 'John Doe' because he wishes to remain anonymous.
From the NY Daily News
Attorney Jeff Herman says the accuser is from the South and was in high school when he came to New York 13 years ago for modeling work.
He said his client connected with Clash — who went under the pseudonym “Craig” and claimed to be only 30 years old — on a gay chat line. The two chatted for a couple of days and then Craig invited the 16-year-old to his apartment.
In the apartment, Herman said his client realized Craig was older than 30. They also engaged in "some sexual activity.”
Herman said his client met Clash again in 2003 and 2004, and over a period of time figured out who Clash was.
"He saw Elmo dolls, an Emmy award and photographs of Elmo with movie stars," said Herman.Jeff Herman also represents the second Elmo accuser, Cecil Singleton, who is suing Kevin Clash for $5 million.
