It’s a shame that someone’s reputation can be soiled so several in a manner of hours. However, here’s to hoping Kevin Clash, who voices Elmo on Sesame Street, can take some comfort in the truth coming forth. The person who accused him of starting a sexual relationship with him while he was underage has recanted his story.
Call up Snuffy, Oscar, and Big Bird and jump that fool! Or you know, move on and learn to forgive (by way of settlement). Whatever.
Here’s TMZ with the rest of the story:
The accuser’s lawyer just released a statement saying, “[The accuser] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship. [The accuser] will have no further comment.”
It’s unclear why the accuser suddenly changed his story … but sources close to the situation tell TMZ … the accuser’s attorney had been meeting with Clash’s attorney as recent as an hour ago, discussing a financial settlement and 6-figures were on the table.
We broke the story, the accuser claimed he had a sexual relationship with Kevin beginning when he was 16 and Kevin was 45.
Clash has also released a statement saying, “I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.”
