If I said the name “Kevin Clash” you may have no idea what I'm talking about. If I said the name “Elmo” you would know instantly who Clash is. Clash lends his voice to Elmo on Sesame Street. He's recently taken a leave of absence in the wake of allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy, which he denies. 

TMZ is reporting that Sesame Workshop lawyers recently met with a 23-year-old man who claims he and Clash began a sexual relationship 7 years ago when he was 16 and Clash was 45.

Sesame Workshop honchos tell TMZ ... "In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash beginning when he was 16-years-old. This was a personal relationship, unrelated to the workplace. We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action."

Cash denies the claims, though he acknowledges he had a relationship with this man, who is now 23.
