Former Elmo Puppeteer Faces Another Underage Sex Allegation


Wendell Teodoro/WireImage(NEW YORK) — A third person has come forward to claim that he had a sexual relationship when he was a teenager with Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned from Sesame Street last week.

According to the New York Daily News, the currently-anonymous accuser will file a lawsuit in New York City on Tuesday.  His lawyer will hold a press conference the same day.

The 29-year-old accuser claims he engaged in sexual activity with Clash in 2000, when he was 16.  His lawyer says his client and Clash met again in 2003 and 2004.

Initially, a 23-year-old man accused Clash of having a sexual relationship with him when he was a minor, but then recanted that allegation.  Last week, a second man, age 24, sued Clash over a similar claim.
