Elmo Accuser #2
Kevin Clash Resigned
The man who claims Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash sexually abused him as a 15-year-old says he’s “happy” and “relieved” Clash called it quits on “Sesame Street” — because the scandal could have wreaked even more havoc on the kids’ TV show.
The accuser Cecil Singleton — who’s now 24 — was out in NYC with his lawyer today when he reacted to the news … that Clash resigned in the immediate wake of Singleton’s lawsuit.
Singleton is suing Clash for more than $5 million, claiming Clash preyed on him as a child “to satisfy his depraved sexual interests.”
Singleton also says Clash desperately tried to conceal his connection to “Sesame Street” during their courtship in 2003 — claiming, “It was essential to him that I not find out who he actually was.”
Singleton says he was motivated to file his lawsuit by Clash’s first accuser Sheldon Stephens.
