The former voice of Sesame Street staple Elmo, Kevin Clash finds himself in hot water again. According to TMZ , Sheldon Stephens alleges that Clash lured him to sex parties when he was a teen. At these parties, crystal meth was used.
Stephens says that he met Clash when Stephens was 16 at a social networking fucntion for actors. Soo after that, the two began a sexual affair that lasted 2 years.
Stephens claims he was taken to Clash’s New York lair by chauffeured limo. While there, he alleges Clash smoked crystal meth during their sexual escapades. He says Clash also gave him poppers to intensify the experience.
And, Stephens says, the chauffeur was in on it, allegedly masturbating while watching Clash and Stephens have sex.
Clash and Stephens had reached a settlement, but Stephens disavowed it because it had a provision requiring him to say he was making the allegations up. The settlement money was never paid, and that’s why Stephens filed the lawsuit.
Clash resigned from “Sesame Street” after the allegations of Stephens and other young men surfaced.
