Please say it ain't so, Elmo!
Former Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash is once again making headlines in a situation that continues to get worse and worse, as one of the original accusers in this disturbing sex scandal is adding more to his allegations.
Sheldon Stephens was one of the first to step forward and say he allegedly had a sexual relationship with Kevin before he was of age, but his story doesn't stop there. He is now claiming that the puppeteer would smoke crystal meth during their sex-capades and feed the young man drugs.
He also says that Kevin would usually send a chauffeur to bring him to his house, and it wasn't uncommon for the driver to participate in their sexual activities.
The former voice of Elmo has avoided charges due to lack of evidence and a few technicalities, but this certainly doesn't look good. Kevin and his accuser were apparently close to making a settlement, but Stephens refused when he found out that he would have to say he made the whole thing up.
This story truly breaks our hearts and we really hope there's no truth to it, but we'll just have to wait and see how things play out in court.
