In a lawsuit filed today, Kevin Clash is accused of sexual activity with a 16-year-old in 2000, according to the New York Daily News.
The unidentified accuser, now 29, alleges that he met Clash on a gay chat service about 13 years ago. His lawyer, Jeff Herman, told the paper that the two met at Clash’s New York apartment and engaged in “some sexual activity.”
The new allegation comes just a week after 24-year-old Cecil Singleton filed a lawsuit claiming that the two had inappropriate contact when Singleton was 15, according to TMZ.
Singleton, who is also represented by Herman, is suing Clash for more than $5 million in damages in that case.
Clash resigned from his longtime job at the children’s television program after he was accused by yet another defendant, Sheldon Stephens, who also claims that he was 16 when Clash had sex with him.
In a confusing turn of events last week, Stephens recanted his story in a settlement with lawyers, and then renewed his accusations. Stephens claims that he was pressured into the flip-flop for a $125,000 settlement.
