Meet the Guy Who F**ked Elmo (UPDATE)

According to The Smoking Gun, this is the asshole who dragged Kevin Clash's name through the mud claiming he'd had a sexual relationship with the Elmo puppeteer when he (Sheldon Stephens) was underage. The Smoking Gun notes that the 24-year-old was once arrested for the knifepoint robbery of $250,000 in jewelry from a music manager for whom he interned. (The apple didn't fall far from the tree: Mom was arrested in 2011 for stabbing her husband with scissors.) That he would do something so vile to Clash and is an "struggling model/actor" tells me I'm only giving him what he wants by posting his name and photo. But I prefer to think of it was an America's Most Unwanted poster.  Read HERE.

UPDATE: I was away when this story turned a corner, but I have a feeling I owe Sheldon Stephens an apology. Read HERE.

If so...I forgive you Kevin Clash. I take back everything I said about dating guys 30 years younger than you. I forgive you for everything bad you've ever done in your entire life. Don't turn the water off while brushing your teeth? Forgiven. Didn't have time to vote? Forgiven. Slapped an old nun square in the face with ham shank? Forgiven.

Jesus lord...

Don't forgive too soon, Rafi! Clash did admit to having said relationship with said actor/model 30 years his junior -- just not when the kid was underage. Call me Judge Judy if you wish, but what was Clash thinking ever getting involved with this kid -- whom he met on the internet? Someone who is so "high profile" should know better, I would think. Then again, there's no such thing as "bad" publicity in showbiz... We're talking about Elmo now, aren't we?
