The man who accused Kevin Klash, the voice of Elmo, of having underage sex with him is apparently changing his story … again.
According to TMZ, Sheldon Stephens, 23, says he was pressured into signing a $125,000 settlement with Clash on the grounds that he would recant his story.
Court documents obtained by TMZ read, in part:
“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.'”
Now, Stephens has allegedly met with lawyers because he wants to undo the settlement, saying he was telling the truth when he said he had sex with Clash when he was 16.
Stephens reportedly told lawyers that he was crying during the negotiations and repeatedly said that he didn’t want to sign the documents, TMZ reports.
Clash’s lawyer has yet to release a comment on TMZ’s story.
