Kevin Clash Resigns From Sesame Street as Second Accuser Steps Forward
Posted on November 20, 2012Kevin Clash, the puppeteer and voice of Sesame Street's Elmo, has now resigned from Sesame Street in light of new allegations of impropriety. The first young man who claimed he had a relationship with Clash when he was just a teen and Clash was an adult had settled his case and gotten $250,000. He's recanted and says he will give the money back so he can stand by his claims.
Now another young man, 24 year-old Cecil Singleton, has come forward who is suing Clash for millions of dollars. The new accuser says he met Clash on a gay phone chat. Singleton says Clash wined and dined him, and that they engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with him when he was only fifteen years old. Singleton wants millions and has even given a press conference to describe all the intimate details. The AP reports:
