SMH:  The drama between Kevin Clash, the voice of Sesame Street’s Elmo, and his one-time lover, Sheldon Stephens continues.  Now Stephens is now seeking legal advice on the $125,000 settlement he received after claiming he was forced to recant his accusation that their relationship started when he was under-age. What a hot mess.

Under terms of the agreement he allegedly struck with Kevin Clash, if he was asked by anyone about their relationship, he must repeat only the following statement: ‘He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.’

TMZ reports Sheldon Stephens cried during the final negotiations with Clash’s lawyer and repeated insisted that he didn’t want to sign the document. He has since met with lawyers in Los Angeles and told them he was pressured in to recanting his accusation. He reportedly said he would gladly give up the settlement to restore his name.

Um, I can never look at Elmo the same way again and I feel for Kevin Clash’s teenage daughter…..
