A fourth accuser has come forward to claim he had underage sex with former Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash. The unidentified man claims his relationship with clash caused him "emotional, mental and psychological damage."
"TMZ reports that the accuser filed the lawsuit under the name John Doe stating that Clash met Doe in Miami beach in 1995 or 1996 when he was only sixteen or seventeen years old.
Clash allegedly later even paid Doe to fly out to New York where he groomed him with money and a place to stay. Doe claims they had sex on multiple occasions during the trip.
Doe’s attorney, Jeff Herman, told TMZ that 'according to our lawsuit, Kevin Clash knowingly paid to transport a minor across state lines for the purpose of satisfying his sexual interests.'"
Clash resigned from Sesame Street in November, when the first allegations surfaced. Three of the four men have since filed suit. Clash has maintained his relationship with the first accuser was consensual and he was not underage. Clash has since come out as gay in response to the accusations.
