    Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash, 52, was accused of engaging in
    underage sex with male model, Sheldon Stephens, 23
    Stephens then retracted his story, after Clash agreed to pay him
    $125,000
    Source says Stephens cried during negotiations with Clash's lawyer
    and he now wishes to undo the settlement 'to restore his name'
    Stephens has been arrested for several misdemeanors including
    allegedly robbing a former employer at knife-point


    The male model who last week accused Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo,
    of having sex with him while he was underage stands by his story,
    claims he was pressured into recanting it, and is now seeking legal
    advice on how to undo his settlement.

    The $125,000 settlement was struck between the two men several hours
    before the accuser, Sheldon Stephens, 23, officially retracted his
    underage sex allegation.

    Under the terms of the settlement, if Stephens is asked by anyone
    about his relationship with Clash, he must repeat only the following
    statement: 'He [Stephens] wants it to be known that his sexual
    relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship.'

    Sheldon Stephens now wishes to undo the $125,000 settlement that he
    signed last week with Clash's lawyers

    Stephens reportedly cried during final negotiations with Clash's
    lawyer and repeatedly insisted he didn't want to sign.

    He has apparently met with lawyers in Los Angeles and told them he was pressured into recanting his allegation and insists he's telling the
    truth when he says he had sex with Clash when he was 16, reports TMZ.

    Stephens, a struggling actor/model, is now telling lawyers he will
    gladly forfeit the $125,000 settlement to restore his name.

    Accusations that Clash, who is openly gay, engaged in an underage
    sexual affair set off a media firestorm after they were revealed last
    Monday. Within 24 hours of the story breaking, Stephens recanted his
    claim.

    After Stephens withdrew his allegations, Clash told the New York Times
    through a spokesman: 'I am relieved that this painful allegation has
    been put to rest. I will not discuss it further.'

    Since the scandal broke, Clash, 52, has taken a leave of absence from
    the Sesame Workshop which produces the popular children's TV show on
    PBS.
