Kevin Kiadii, a 25-year-old makeup artist, says he and Clash had a sexual relationship when he was 16. Clash’s fetish was to act as a “father figure” to the then boy, according to Kiadii. He told reporters that Clash knew he was a minor and said that he was 28 when he was actually 43.

Kaidii says he and Clash met on a chatline in 2004, and according to his attorney, he was “a young boy exploring his sexuality├é┬ánot looking for sex but for friends and understanding on gay chat lines.”

Kaidii says the lawsuit is not about the money but having his story heard.
