Kevin Clash has been accused of sexual abuse of a then 16-year-old Sheldon Stephens, a “model”.
Stephens has a record, including robbery & NY Post also mentioned that his mother was convicted of attempted murder when she stabbed her husband last year.
NY Post reports:
The accuser, identified by the Smoking Gun web site Sheldon Stephens contacted Clash’s bosses at “Sesame Street” to claim he had sex with Clash when he was 16-years-old.
Stephens, 24, quickly recanted Tuesday, one day after the allegations became public and Clash, 52, was forced to take a leave of absence from the beloved childhood program.
TMZ reported Stephens released the statement after lawyers for him and Clash began discussions on a possible “six-figure” financial settlement.
