Fifth Elmo Accuser Comes Forward


A fifth person has come forward accusing former Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash of inappropriate sexual conduct with a minor...

From The Daily Mail
Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash is facing a fifth lawsuit from a young man alleging sexual abuse.
Kevin Kiadii was just 16 when he alleges that the so-called voice of Elmo ‘groomed and co-erced him into sexual contact’, including full penetration, at his Manhattan home.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Mr Kiadii’s attorney Jeff Herman revealed his intention to file the suit. He said: ‘By standing up now my client is standing up for his 16-year-old self. He wasn’t able to consent. He was a compliant victim and today he feels totally preyed upon and taken advantage of.’
In the lawsuit, filed today, 52-year-old Clash is characterized as a man who showed one face to the public, that of affable children’s entertainer, ‘while at the same time he was, in secret, preying on teenage boys to satisfy his depraved sexual interests'.
Speaking for the first time, Mr Kiadii, now a 25-year-old make-up artist, has alleged that Clash's particular fetish was 'to play the role of father'.
He claimed that the star was unfazed by his own admission that he was just 16 years old and that Clash in turn lied and claimed to be 28.
When Mr Kiadii met Clash the Sesame Street performer was actually 43.
According to his lawyer, Mr Kiadii was 'a young boy exploring his sexuality - not looking for sex but for friends and understanding on gay chat lines'.
It was on one such chatline that the two met back in 2004.
After speaking for more than an hour, Mr Kiadii alleged that Clash offered to send a limousine to collect the boy from his Brooklyn home and bring him to his Upper West Side apartment.
Mr Kiadii said: ‘When I arrived at his apartment I was flabbergasted by how beautiful everything was. He met me with a hug and was very affectionate and everything was very lavish.'
He continued: ‘He liked to play games. I would say his fetish is that he likes to play the role of the father. He wants you to feel real comfortable.’
The make-up artist is aware that his decision to file a suit will make him a target for criticism.
He said: 'I know there will be people who say I’m greedy but it’s not about that. It’s not really about the lawsuit or the money it’s about wanting people to hear my story.
‘When I was 16 I had all that arrogance, I didn’t think. Now I have a niece and nephew of my own I see things differently.
‘I would go to his [Clash’s] apartment in the Upper West Side and the doorman would buzz me up at all hours.
‘I look young now and I’m sure I looked a lot younger than my years then. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the first underage boy to go up there. I just feel like everyone was in on it.’
Mr Kiadii said he never encountered drugs in his meetings with Clash and that after their first night together he saw him a further four or five times over a month.
Then one day Clash allegedly invited him to his apartment but family commitments made it impossible. ‘I said I couldn’t make it,’ Mr Kiadii said. ‘He said okay never mind and I never heard from him again.’
According to Mr Kiadii, suddenly all the gifts that the older star had lavished upon him – music, flowers and chocolates – dried up.
‘When suddenly I never heard from him I felt worthless,’ he said. ‘I felt like nothing.’

All of these I-may-as-well-file-a-suit-because-other-people-are-filing-a-suit-and-I-may-as-well-pretend-to-be-hurt-now-even-though-I-should-have-come-forward-when-I-was-ACTUALLY-and-allegedly-assaulted boys look similar. Anyway, this is all kind of gross. If Kevin wanted this, he should have at least slept with real grown men. Or maybe he has an affinity for younger guys? Who knows.

Hi Elmo!

He is cute and his eyebrows are on point, wouldnt doubt that he is a bomb make-up artist.





But on topic,this predator is getting what he deserves, that is why it is all crumbling around him now. Cuz he really did do that stuff. What a sicko!

---"Speaking for the first time, Mr Kiadii, now a 25-year-old make-up artist" LOL---

That just mad me giggle. But yeah he liked it, now wants money to start his own make-up brand "Tickle me Red Lip Balm" or "Tickle me Red Blush"

Dude made a good point. He does look young and at 16 I bet he looked like a little baby! Wonder why the doorman turn the other way when letting the children to this grown man apartment. I wonder if he has already been paid off by Kevin or back then was Kevin tipping him nicely to shut the F up and look the other way?

WTF Elmo! My daughter LOVED you! Is anything sacred any more???

I wanted to give Kevin the benefit of the doubt, but this is just F***ed up at this point. But, the one thing I don't understand with all these little sissy's coming out of the woodwork is this - if you are so damn hurt, why are you not pressing charges against him instead of just trying to take his money? If someone did this to me, I would want his ass in jail!

He is a very handsome young man. It's a shame when an adult sexually violates a minor. in this case a grown man violated a young boy. I don't know if this young man is straight or gay. If he's gay, I don't know if his being violated has anything to do with it. Either way, this Elmo guy needs to go to jail for perpetrating on innocent kids. This makes me sick.

Anonymous said...

Oh Boy here's another one. I'm so sick of this, that was almost 10 years ago why are you filing now. I'm 25 and I wouldnt file a lawsuit about having sex with a grown man when I was 16. Teenagers have sex with adults every damn day you don't see them filing lawsuits. I guess because he has money you're gonna take the opportunity. AND no I'm not saying it is ok for a grown man to engage in sexual activities with minors.

He need a beauty shop of seats ! Who can't say this ? Women get played like this all the time. You can't sue because you were gamed or charmed out of the drawers. Women still fall for that. That's a lawsuit door you do not want to open !

How do you not know that a grown ass man wants to stick his hard dick into your ass? And then you want to file a MONETARY suit a damn decade AFTER the fact and after you slept with him? Please.

Anytime someone takes advantage of children, they are sealing their fate and will have to one day answer for what they did. Although money seems to be the motivation for these young men, who I believe at the time when Elmo was fuckin them, they knew exactly what they were doing with this predator. No one pressed any charges because these guys saw Elmo in secret. I'm sure if their parents knew, Elmo would've been incarcerated. But the bottom line is Elmo made his bed and now has to lay in it. He let his love for teenage booty cause him to lose everything he's worked hard for. I wonder how he feels about it all right now?

these children are full of it. today sex education is taught and they watch the dang news. no excuse for hooking up with him. don't care if you are/were a child. EVERY CHILD EDUCATED IN THE SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION KNOWS THIS BEHAVIOUR IS WRONG, YET THEY STILL INDULGE, ENGAGE, ETC. THEN WHEN THEY GET GROWN, THEY FILE CHARGES. THIS IS WHY WE EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN SO THEY WON'T BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. BUT THEY THINK THEY GROWN AND STILL GO OUT AND MESS WITH ADULTS, WHICH IS WHY WE STILL HAVE TEEN PREGNANCY, AIDS, OTHER STDS, ETC. THE KIDS AIN'T LISTENIN . . . THEY ARE NOT INNOCENT ANYMORE EITHER WITH ALL THE VIDEOS, ETC THEY WATCH. THEY NEED TO STEP IT UP.

WHICH IS WHY MY GRANDMA MADE ME STAY OUT OF GROWN FOLKS' WAY. SHE KNEW HOW THEY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE, BUT THESE EMPOWERED KIDS NEED TO SLOW THEIR ROLL, AS WELL.

POINT IS. . . EDUCATING THE CHILDREN IS NOT DOING A GOOD JOB. HUMAN NATURE AND HORMONES PREVAIL. IT'S NOT RIGHT. IT IS WHAT IS AND ONE THING ALL KIDS KNOW TODAY IS THE MANTRA: GIT THAT MONEY!!!

SORRY CHILDREN AINT'INNOCENT NO MORE; THE INTERNET, AND THE OVERSEXED CULTURE TOOK CARE OF THAT!! THEY NEED TO BE SMARTER AND WISER IN THEIR ACTIONS, BUT INNOCENT? ON A GAY CHAT LINE? NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!

Double standards when it comes to males & sexual abuse. Thy can fall prey to predators, seduction esp when they use money,drugs, alcohol and appear fatherly. I'm sure they have money in sight, but Clash set it all inmotion by contacting and establishing associations

All of these victims are 15-16 year old male prostitutes, trying to cash in.

Sounds like some more bull-shit "After speaking for more than an hour, Mr Kiadii alleged that Clash offered to send a limousine to collect the boy from his Brooklyn home and bring him to his Upper West Side apartment.". I don't think Kevin is that dumb to send a limo to a kids home. Where was his fucking parents to question him about all the gifts they didn't by or those snitching ass neighbors. Sounds like a drama queen to me. I'm not saying they never fucked but I'm willing to bet that kid wasn't 16 yo. I bet he was an adult with a hungry asshole and plump lips. I say he just had a good 15 min of fame now he wish he had gotten more.

Its only gonna get worse cuz theres no moral fiber left in this country. Turn on the fucking TV right now, to ABC family or any other channel and therew will b some freaky shit on MIDDAY! This is whats raising these kids!!!!

Anonymous said...

Once upon a time, children were not allowed to mix with grownups in the home. The adults had their living room and the kids had to keep out, especially when mom and dad had guests. Kids could not be in grown folks busines or conversation. This was a rule. Now we have Timmy and Tyrone running the house, calling the cops when they get smacked for talking back, raising themselves cuz both momma and daddy are either busting their chops working and cant raise Timmy/Tyrone or mom and dad are just sperm and egg donor that dont stay involved in their kid's life. Now we have a mess. A bunch of self-absorbed, Instagram posting, materialistic, dysfunctional, hypersexual "KIDS".

OK...clash is dead wrong, but these tricks tryna act like Kevin sent a limo driver to his house, kidnapped him, brought him to the upperwest side, forced him through past security, forced his clothes off of him and raped him.

I'm sorry, I might believe that a 6 year old could be deceived and manipulated like that, but not at 16. You chose to swing your sweet ass in the air, and enjoyed every minute of the sex, the gifts and the whole package. You are doing this for MONEYand money ONLY!!

@ 5:34 PM "Soooooo..it was ok for R.Kelly to do this to girls of the same age...???!! WTF?" ================================================No it's wasn't right but she too had a motive.. She didn't come out and tell on R Kelly someone else did. The main problem with that was it was video. As of today she still have not said that she was the one in the video.

Kevin Kiadii (Miss Thang) struggling with his lipstick business is looking for some extra cold cash to tide him over a rough patch. Meanwhile this terribly traumatized seduced babes in the woods wants some celebrity status with hopes of winning some celebrity business. Mr. Kiadii’s (better known as KK) pictures can be found all over the gay sex network, looking like Cleopatra with that cum hither smile. Where were his parents when he was being wined, dined, and seduced by an adult? When these tired used up queens are finished suing Mr. Klash, their parents should be brought to justice by the courts and sent to jail for living such a low life existence in front of them damaging and exposing them to such a garbage childhood. These queens were pros. at a very young age and they were NOT INNOCENT! There are no guilty parties here…

It's pretty obivous that Kevin has pissed off the "higher ups" so now it's time to expose all his dirty little secrets. This is how they will either regain control of him or destroy him totally. Entertainers are given everything their hearts desire no matter how sick and twisted it may be. And when they get too cocky or "step out of line", all of their secrets are exposed. This man has been doing this for a very long time and there are many others just like him.
Money just might be the motive for this young man coming forward now instead of years ago, but why was he put in this position to begin with. Why was a sixteen year old used in this way? Why didn't anyone help him? I'm sure the doorman knew as well as others in the building but no one helped these young boys. Also where were the parents or guardians of these young men?
I'm sure once Kevin decides to "behave himself" and act accordindly all of this will simply disappear like it has for so many others famous people. But what will become of all these children who are used and tossed aside because they have gotten older, or becasue their looks have changed?
And to the person who asked why the young man didn't just have him arrested instead of filing a lawsuit. Well it is harder for men to prove any kind of abuse whether it is old or new or whether it comes at the hands of a woman or another man. Hit him where it hurts the most, in his wallet. The industry is a very dangerous place and people like Kevin are in abundance. Please talk to your children and teens and let them know these things exist so maybe they can make better informed choices.

Peace be with you all....

There are no children anymore, most are experienced hard-core hos and looking for adults to indulge them in their pleasures. These kids do not want any help and will turn on you if you try to interfere. You cannot expect the world to raise your kids. If you are the parent and have not instilled the necessary moral codes in the child prior to the teen yrs. like it or not your work is done. The core of this problem is the single parent that is busy getting her grove on.
