After 28 years of playing one of the most beloved characters in TV history, Kevin Clash can no longer tell you how to get to Sesame Street.
The voice of Elmo dodged a nasty scandal last week when a man who accused Kevin of having a relationship with him when he was 16 admitted their affair started when he was 18. However, accuser number two Cecil Singleton came forward with a $5 million lawsuit and claims that Kevin had an inappropriate relationship with him when he was 15. While he denies the accusations, the new scandal ultimately left Kevin with no choice but to quit the show. "Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go any longer. I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately," he said in a statement.
