A third accuser has come forward in the Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash underage sex scandal. The accuser, currently listed as “John Doe,” claims he participated in sexual acts in with Clash at the age of 16. He is now 29.

The accuser will file suit against Clash tomorrow in Manhattan Federal Court. His lawyer, Jeff Herman, revealed that “John Doe” started writing a book in 2009 about his interactions with Kevin and excerpts will be read at tomorrow’s conference.

The lawsuit claims Herman’s client met Clash on a gay chat line in 2000 before engaging in sexual activity at the Elmo actor’s apartment. “John Doe” said he realized who Clash was when “he saw Elmo dolls, an Emmy award and photographs of Elmo with movie stars.”

A representative for Clash told The New York Daily News, “Mr. Clash believes this lawsuit has no merit.”

    How do you meet someone on a gay sex chatline and then have the nerve to say that it was sexual abuse 13 years later? Why are you on a sex chat line at 16 if you dont desire to have sex and with adults at that? If you read the source article for this, this gentleman says he went over to Kevin Clash’s apt with the explicit purpose to have sex. How is that abuse? Why are you reading excerpts from your book at a press conference? Like, are we supposed to believe this shit? Who believes this nonsense?

    This story and the other accusers’ stories don’t make sense. Please look up the other accusers’ interviews. They seem like the messiest and craziest queens ever. Seriously, I don’t even think the last two accusers have even met Kevin Clash. This is some tragic shit. I feel like all 3 saw what happened with the Eddie Long scandal and are trying to make a buck. Blood is in the water.
