Just when the voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, thought it was safe to resume his life, he gets the bomb dropped on him one more time.

Now, Sheldon Stephens, who accused Clash of having sex with him while he was underage, wants to recant his recant, so to speak. He’s back to standing by his original story that Clash had underage sex with him.

According to TMZ, he’s now claiming that he was pressured into recanting it, and is now interviewing lawyers to help him undo his settlement.

As we reported, Clash and Sheldon Stephens entered into a settlement in which Clash agreed to pay Stephens $125,000, but in return the agreement provides the following:

“Stephens agrees that immediately upon execution of this Agreement, his counsel, Andreozzi & Associates, P.C., shall release the [following] statement … ‘He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.’”

TMZ  says Stephens met with attorneys in Los Angeles and told them he was pressured into recanting his allegation and insists he’s telling the truth when he says he had sex with Clash when he was 16.

Stephens, 23, is telling lawyers he will gladly forfeit the $125,000  to restore his name. Stephens is saying he was literally crying during the final negotiations and repeatedly said he didn’t want to sign.

Clash’s lawyer told TMZ Friday he would have no comment on the settlement story.

    No one has to be hateful just because you don’t agree with someones’ sexuality this makes you no different than the KKK who hates you because of the color of your skin. I wonder when stupid ignorant and prejudice black folks are going to get it. The persecuted becomes the persecutor remember the hate you speak will be dished at the same measure BigBlackW which must stand for whacked

    I tried to ig this crap, but it won’t go away.
    When I was a kid, Count Count and the Cookie Monster was my boys.
    My kids liked Elmo and Big Bird when they was little. Clash is a perv ( homo, pedophile ) and Stephens is a perv ( homo, petty criminal, golddigger ).
    I don’t want to read Clash book. I don’t want to understand this. They are both WRONG for their sexual sins and NOBODY cares about this anymore !!!!!
    I need a box or two of chocolate chip cookies. Where my boys at ???…………………….
