According to a federal lawsuit filed in New York on Tuesday, Kevin Kiadii, now 25, says he was 16 when he met Kevin Clash during an online chat.
The man says he met Kevin Clash on a chat line when he was 16 years old in 2000 and exploring modeling opportunities in New York.
The young man who accused Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of having sex with him as an underage teen, then recanted his story, has broken his silence.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Sesame Workshop called the controversy surrounding Kevin Clash’s personal life “a distraction that none of us want.”
A man has now recanted his claims, after splashing across the headlines accusing Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who plays Elmo on “Sesame Street,” of having a sexual affair with him when he was underage.
Sesame Workshop says puppeteer Kevin Clash denies the charges, which were first made in June by the alleged partner, who by then was 23.
The New York-based Sesame Workshop was not pleased this week with a Halloween costume now on the market, depicting Big Bird in a “sexy” women’s outfit.
Quite a few New Yorkers going out on Halloween said Wednesday that they were planning to portray a fine feathered friend who stands 8 feet 2 inches tall, and who has found himself at the center of a political debate lately.
The New York-based Sesame Workshop was not pleased Tuesday with an Obama campaign ad featuring the voice of Big Bird.
