The man accusing Sesame Street puppeteer Kevin Clash of having sexual relations with him when he was 16, has changed his story. The unnamed accuser has recanted his accusations. He must’ve gotten paid! SMH!

From TMZ:

The accuser’s lawyer just released a statement saying, “[The accuser] wants it to be known that his s-xual 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.

h responded with a statement of his own, saying he is “relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest.” He had no further comment.

Sesame Workshop, which produces “Sesame Street” in New York, soon followed by saying, “We are happy that Kevin can move on from this unfortunate episode.”

SMH!
