Well this is interesting…
Last week, the guy who accused Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash recanted his accusation.
Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash agreed to pay his then-underage sex accuser $125,000 to recant his story, according to TMZ.
Sheldon Stephens came forward this month claiming he had a sexual relationship with “Sesame Street” Muppeteer Kevin Clash, 52, when Stephens was just 16 years old. Clash said they were consenting adults at the time.
On Tuesday, Stephens recanted the underage accusation.
TMZ reported Saturday that Stephens backtracked on his story after being paid $125,000.
