The dude who accused the voice and essence of Elmo, Kevin Clash, of having an inappropriate, sexual, and underage relationship with him when he was only supposedly only 16 years old is now saying that he was actually an adult when the two were together and did the naughty.
Officially, the accuser via his attorney said,
[The accuser] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship. [The accuser] will have no further comment.
The rumor is that Kevin Clash and his attorney have been meeting with the accuser and his attorney quite often and as of quite recently and may have reached a settlement that could, might, may be in the ballpark of six figures.
At least Elmo will be back on Monday after a very short vacation.
