Kevin Clash's accuser, Sheldon Stephens, is reportedly attempting to undo a settlement in which he recanted underage sexual allegations.

According to celebrity website, the media outlet which broke the story, Stephens has met with lawyers in Los Angeles to discuss the matter. reported that Clash, the puppeteer and voice of Sesame Street's Elmo, negotiated a settlement in which Stephens, an aspiring model/actor with a troubled past, was paid $125,000 on the condition that he withdraw allegations that he and Clash had a sexual relationship when Stephens, now 24, was 16 years old and state that they shared an “adult consensual relationship.”

Stephens recanted the story last Tuesday, a day after first reported his claims.

Stephens reportedly has told lawyers that he is prepared to forfeit the $125,000 and was opposed to the deal all along. He said he was pressured into signing the settlement.

According to The Smoking Gun, Stephens' past includes multiple arrests, the most serious of which took place in 2009 when he was accused of stealing $250,000 worth of jewelry from Los Angeles music manager Darian Pollard. Police arrested Stephens in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania airport wearing a white gold necklace and a ring. Stephens told cops the jewelry was a gift. Pollard told police that he was robbed at knifepoint. The charges were eventually dismissed, and a friend called the incident a simple “misunderstanding.”

The The New York Times reported that Clash had not previously publicly acknowledged that he is gay.
