Well that set a world record for fasted sex scandal retraction. The man who accused Elmo voice, Kevin Clash, of sexing him up before he was legal retracted his claims. Now he says he and Kevin did slip n slide, but only after he was an adult. Insert eye roll here.
The man who claims he had a sexual relationship with Kevin Clash -- the voice of Elmo -- is RECANTING his story ... claiming he WAS an adult during their relationship after all.
The accuser's lawyer just released a statement saying, "[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."
It's unclear why the accuser suddenly changed his story ... but sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... the accuser's attorney had been meeting with Clash's attorney as recent as an hour ago, discussing a financial settlement and 6-figures were on the table.
SMH. Someone should tell the accuser that you don't get to cry rape just because you had a bad breakup. That wastes the time of everyone involved, and more importantly makes it harder for real victims who after every false allegation like this are given the side eye when they come forward. If you want to get back at your ex, and maybe squeeze a little cash out of them, take that ish to Facebook. Threaten to post their half naked bathroom muscle pics, that will get their attention.
Although I bet Kevin is breathing a sigh of relief, he really could have avoided this whole thing by being smarter about his choice in partners. A more mature person without all of that baggage would be less likely to cry wolf, nor have the ammo to do so. First, pick someone closer to his age...you know maybe someone born with in a decade of him. And maybe pick someone you didn't know when they were a kid. I'm pretty sure there is no shortage of guys all over Match and OK Cupid between 30 and 45 who would love to play Tickle Me Elmo.
