In the most anticipated move ever, the ‘model’ that initially caused Elmo-gate, is now booking fashion spreads.
In the interview Sheldon claims, “I didn’t go to the tabloids.” The 24-year-old Pennsylvania man who was at the center of the first underage sex scandal involving Sesame Street’s Kevin Clash, also took the opportunity to offer his version of the events.
The story “started off as a rumor from people in my circle,” says Stephens. “These were people who were close to me who leaked the information to the press for money. That’s how the [information] leaked about me being underage.” Stephens also admits that he usually is attracted to older men. “I can respect the work that it takes to build a career,” Stephens told 360 Mag Editor/Publisher Vaughn Lowery. “I never enjoyed dating people younger.”
Stephens contradicts himself twice about the “rumored underage” relationship … and also praises Clash’s “love” and “work” with children. “Kevin spends so much time with kids, it’s really all about the kids for him!” says Stephens.

We also previously told you about a third accuser who recently came forward — who also accused Clash of underage sex — and he is detailing their disturbing encounters in depth. At a press conference yesterday his lawyer read an expert from the book the accused may release (that he began writing in 2009):
“Mr. Tickler is what I will call him. And the game we played was father and son. When we first met, I was 16 and there was no intercourse. However, lots of heavy kissing and he showed me what it felt like to get on your knees and obey your man.”
Yikes. Things are not looking good for Kevin Clash.
