A fourth man is accusing former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of sex abuse, reports the Associated Press.

Clash's first accuser said last month that he had an inappropriate relationship with Clash when he was 16 and Clash was 45. He then recanted the story, and after that said Clash paid him $125,000 to do so.

Clash resigned from Sesame Street, where he worked for 28 years, after a second man sued him. Then a third accuser came forth a few weeks ago and filed another lawsuit.
