Sesame Street Star Fathers Secret Love Child
“Sesame Street” actor Roscoe Orman didn’t cheat only once on jilted longtime partner Sharon Orman, she claims. Sharon tells us how she shockingly learned that Roscoe fathered a secret love child with another woman while she was pregnant with their now 27-year-old son, Miles.
Via NY Post reports:
Sharon and Roscoe were never legally married, but lived together for 40 years and have four children. Roscoe, who played affable father figure Gordon for 30 years on “Sesame Street,” left Sharon in 2010 for Kimberley Lamarque, whom he married in December.
Sharon last week exclusively told Page Six that Roscoe has left her “destitute” after moving on with Lamarque. She’s been evicted from their Montclair, NJ townhouse, and has filed a complaint in Superior Court of New Jersey for spousal support, arguing that the couple lived as man and wife for four decades.
Now, Sharon tells us she received a paternity suit in the mail 27 years ago, when she was pregnant with Miles, who also appeared on “Sesame Street” with his father.
“I was pregnant with my third kid. We were ecstatic,” Sharon said. “Then a paternity suit arrived in the mail. I’m pregnant, and another woman in a different state is pregnant at the same time.”
Court records show complaints for child support against Roscoe filed in courts in New Jersey and Washington state on behalf of a Deborah Hill. The Post reported in 1988 that Roscoe was required to pay $5,000 in back child support for their daughter, Kalah, and $200 a month to Hill, a Beaverton, Ore., masseuse whom Roscoe met while in town for a “Sesame Street” appearance.
Sharon told us that Roscoe paid Hill, who was on welfare after getting pregnant, child support until Kalah was 18, and put her through college. Meanwhile, Roscoe and Sharon had another daughter and stayed together in New Jersey.
When asked why she didn’t leave Roscoe then, Sharon told us: “I wasn’t going to jump up and leave my family.” A lawyer for Roscoe didn’t get back to us.
