This all went from bad to resolved, to maybe-not-so-resolved, to MUCH MUCH WORSE in no time at all!
Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street, came under scrutiny last week when a young man named Sheldon Stephens accused the actor of engaging in a sexual relationship with him when he was only 16 years old. Although it appeared the matter was to be settled out of court and the allegations to be recanted, the now-23-year-old then announced that he was unfairly pressured into the deal, and would still be pressing charges!
Well, he may now have some help in the courtroom, because a SECOND man, named Cecil Singleton, has stepped forward and revealed that he had a sexual relationship with him after meeting on a gay phone chat in 1993…when he was only 15 YEARS OLD!
And because of it, Clash has now RESIGNED from the children's program!
