Earlier today, Elmo’s former voice Kevin Clash turned his I QUIT THIS BITCH letter into Sesame Street’s human resources office right after TMZ said that a second accuser filed a lawsuit against him. That second accuser, Cecil Singleton, is suing Kevin Clash for $5 million in damages, because he claims that dry humping on Kevin when he was just 15 years old left him emotionally scarred. Cecil and his lawyer held a press conference in NYC today and he wanted to make a few things clear: Elmo dry humped him, but they didn’t do butt sex until years later.
Cecil, whose eyebrow situation tells me that he’s all business, told reporters this afternoon that after meeting Kevin Clash on a gay chat line in 2003, they “dated” for about two weeks. During that two weeks, Kevin took him out to fancy dinners and sprinkled money all over him. Cecil and Kevin kissed, dry humped, fapped and groped on each other, but it never went beyond that. Cecil says he broke shit off, because Kevin wanted a more serious relationship and he wasn’t ready for that. They kept in contact and after Cecil became legal, they took things all the way.
This is ten kinds of messy and I’m left with a million questions. Why is Kevin Clash doing this to us? Why were people still using phone chat lines in the year 2003? Why do I wish this can go to trial and be televised on CNN HD so I can watch Cecil Singleton whip his mane as he sashays up to the stand to testify? Is Cecil Singleton half unicorn or full unicorn? Is Cecil Singleton the name of a Tennessee Williams character, because it sounds like one? And more importantly, where is Gloria Allred in all of this?!
Gloria Allred should’ve sniffed Elmo’s saliva on Cecil Singleton’s ass from ten thousand miles away. Gloria would’ve made this press conference so much better. She would’ve made Cecil act out his relationship with Kevin Clash using a Tickle-Me-Elmo. Cecil Singleton made a huge mistake by not hiring the publicity stunt ringmaster that is Gloria Allred.
