Kevin Clash (the voice of Elmo) agreed to pay his accuser $125,000 if the accuser would recant his story that Clash had sex with him when he was a minor. Just when you thought this guy was innocent, he may not be.
TMZ is reporting that the accusers name is Sheldon Stephens, and allegedly he was only 16 when Clash began a sexual affair with him. Clash has acknowledged an affair, but insists it started when Stephens when he was an adult.
Multiple sources tell TMZ hours before Stephens recanted his underage sex allegation, a settlement was struck between the two parties. Under the terms of the settlement, Clash agreed to pay Stephens 125k. But the settlement then provides the following:
"Stephens agrees that immediately upon execution of this Agreement, his counsel, Andreozzi & Associates, P.C., shall release the [following] statement ... 'He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.'"
TMZ says that Stephens was pressured into signing the settlement and that he continues to insist Clash had sex with him when he was a minor.
