Kevin Clash Resigns

Kevin Clash

Elmo actor Kevin Clash has resigned amid claims of underage sexual abuse, Sesame Workshop revealed today.

Kevin Clash was first accused of an inappropriate sexual relationship by aspiring model Sheldon Stephens, who has a history of arrests including allegedly robbing a former boss of a $250,000 necklace at knife point.

Stephens recanted his abuse claims but later expressed regret over signing the $125,000 deal which required him to take back the allegations.

Kevin Clash is now being sued by Cecil Singleton, who claims he met 32 year-old Kevin in a gay phone chat when he was only 15.

On the heels of both Stephens and Singleton’s claims, Clash resigned from "Sesame Street." Sesame Workshop released this statement: “Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding Kevin’s personal life has become a distraction that none of us want, and he has concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job and has resigned from Sesame Street. This is a sad day for Sesame Street.”
