The shit has just hit the fan regarding Kevin Clash and his accuser. Last week, the voice of Elmo was accused of some disturbing acts involving an alleged underage boy. Sesame Street and Kevin immediately went into damage control. And, miraculously the allegations were recanted.
Theories surfaced that a check was cut to buy the accuser silence. Guilty or innocent, it seemed best for all parties to make the problem go away. Well, it seems the problem hasn’t gone away. And it appears the accuser is out for Elmo’s blood in a major way.
The man who accused Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo, of having sex with him while he was underage stands by his story, claims he was pressured into recanting it, and is now interviewing lawyers to help him undo his settlement.
We’ve learned Stephens has met with lawyers in Los Angeles and told them he was pressured into recanting his allegation and insists he’s telling the truth when he says he had sex with Clash when he was 16.
Stephens — who is now 23 — is telling lawyers he will gladly forfeit the $125,000 to restore his name. Stephens is saying he was literally crying during the final negotiations and repeatedly said he didn’t want to sign.
Personally I have no dog in this fight. While I love what Elmo stands for, I can’t be blinded by my love of the furry puppet. Lets see what happens as this story develop. One things for sure; this matter was processed a little too neatly. This story is really starting to grow legs.
Lets see what happens.
