The Elmo Accuser is sticking by his story and has now come out to say he was pressured to recant his allegations. Sheldon Stephens is interviewing lawyers to help him undo his settlement, that he entered into with Kevin Clash(the voice of Elmo). The terms of the settlement stipulated that Stephens would be paid $125,000, if he said that the relationship between Clash and himself was an adult consensual relationship. Shortly after signing the documents the following statement was released.
“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.'”
According to TMZ,Stephens has recently met with lawyers in Los Angeles and told them he was pressured into recanting. He is now insisting that the relationship with Clash occurred when he was 16. Stephens is willing to forfeit the $125,000 settlement that he was offered ,in order to reestablish his name. Stephens has admitted that he was crying as he signed the statement and kept telling lawyers that he did not want to go through with it.
Clash and his attorneys have yet to comment on the current turn of events.
