Kevin Clash, The Voice Of Elmo, Has Resigned From Sesame Street [VIDEO]
Kevin Clash, has resigned from Sesame Street after another accuser has come forward and accused him of sexual abuse.
Kevin’s nightmare began when a man accused the puppeteer of having a sexual relationship with him when he was 16. Clash, took a leave of absence from Sesame Workshop when the allegations were made public. However no sooner did 24-year-old Sheldon Stephens go public with his allegation of sexual abuse, he recanted his story.
In the meantime, TMZ previously reported Stephens signed a $125,000 settlement with Clash, but has since expressed regret over signing the deal. Now he’s insisting that Clash’s law firm Andreozzi & Associates pressured him to take a settlement for publicly recanting his story of the underage sex claim. Stephens is still standing by his original story that he had a sexual relationship with Clash when he was only 16-years-old and the puppeteer was 45. On top of that Stephens has sought new legal representation. By the way, word has it there is an email paper trail confirming their alleged romance.There’s no word from Clash’s camp on the latest news, but it’s safe to say that it is a wrap for him playing Elmo on “Sesame Street”. No word yet as to if Elmo, will come back to Sesame Street with a different puppeteer or not.
