Elmo Accuser Retracts Recantation

Er, just kidding? Sheldon Stephens, the 23-year-old model who received a $125,000 out-of-court settlement from Elmo voice actor Kevin Clash last week, is now recanting yet again. Stephens had initially said that he and Clash began a seven-year relationship when he was 16 and Clash was 45. But as part of the settlement last week, Stephens had released a statement saying the relationship “was an adult, consensual relationship.” However, Stephens is now saying that he was “pressured” into signing the settlement and that he is “interviewing lawyers” so that he can return it.
