Roscoe Orman sharon sesame street

The iconic children’s TV show “Sesame Street” has certainly had its fair share of negative press over the last year.

First with the voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, and all of the sexual allegations that have plagued him and now another loveable favorite who played Gordon, Roscoe Orman (pictured), has taken over the spotlight.

Orman is accused of kicking his longtime partner of 40 years, Sharon (pictured), to the curb for a younger woman according to the New York Post.

Orman had been a Sesame Street cast member for thirty years and even though his role is no longer consistent, he still makes guest appearances on the show.  The 68-year-old, who has four children with Sharon, never legally married her, yet they lived together as man and wife for nearly 40 years. Sharon took Orman’s last name and is reportedly named as his wife on all legal documents such as real property mortgages, tax filings and deeds.

Now the 60-year-old woman is claiming that the Sesame Street father figure got married last December to a much younger woman named Kimberley Lamarque. The miffed ex is also accusing Orman of breaking all ties with his children and not giving her any financial support. Sharon also states that she is being evicted from the Montclair, N.J., townhouse that she shared with Orman after he stopped paying the maintenance bill. She says the home’s utilities have also been shut off due to non-payment; she is staying with one of her children.

Sharon, who is devastated by Orman’s actions towards her, told the New York Post, “I want people to know he’s been living a double life. I gave up my career to raise the kids and never cheated on him. I am the one who made him a ‘Sesame Street’ dad. This is what I get after 40 years? You can leave me now?”

Now Sharon has hired a lawyer, Charles P. Cohen, to do her bidding for her and he told the New York Post, “For more than 39 years, Sharon served as a homemaker and mother, dedicating her life to Roscoe and their four children. She has no savings or financial security, and has now been left homeless and financially destitute as Mr. Orman has left her for a younger woman, without providing any means of support.”

Sesame Street is now kind of looking like an unsavory part of town!
