Elmo Has Been Cleared and His Accuser Has Been Outed

The voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, had his reputation dragged through the mud when he was accused of sleeping with a then 16-year-old boy. His accuser, now known to be Sheldon Stephens, recanted his allegations earlier this week. His law firm said in a statement that “he wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.”

Today, TSG uncovered Sheldon Stephens’ identity and gave a little more background on the man. He’s from Pennsylvania and shockingly has a checkered past which includes once being arrested for robbing $250,000 in jewelry from a music manager at knifepoint. Oddly enough, the man he robbed had no recollection of the incident or filing a report and a friend of Stephens’ called the incident a “misunderstanding” and said it was more a domestic dispute.

Anyway, the good news is you can stop imaging Elmo statutory raping a 16-year-old boy. To be honest, sex was getting a little weird with that image running through my head.

If this recantation is part of a settlement agreement, then the recantation is bullshit.

What are you if you willingly accept gifts, trips and cash and later consider it abuse?
