Elmo Sex Accuser Has Recanted His Recantation

According to Gawker, the  young man who accused Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of having a sexual relationship with him when he was 16 – and then recanted that story – has now recanted his recantation.

He says he was pressured to take back his initial allegations, receiving a $125,000 settlement.

Apparently, he’s changed his mind.

From Gawker:

According to TMZ, Stephens is now saying that he was “pressured” into signing the settlement which required that he release a statement saying his sexual relationship with Clash “was an adult consensual relationship.”

Stephens initially claimed he and Clash began a seven-year relationship when the former was 16 and latter was 45.

The 23-year-old is said to be “interviewing lawyers” for assistance in returning the six-figure settlement, though it remains unclear how he plans to proceed.
