    There’s some sad news out of Sesame Street! Kevin Clash, the voice of everyone’s favorite red furry creature, aka Elmo, had to take a leave of absence from the popular children’s show after he was alleged to have had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy.

    Clash has denied the allegations from a 23-year-old man, who claims he and the voice over actor began a sexual relationship 7 years ago when he was 16 and Clash was 45. 

    As reported by TMZ:

    Clash has acknowledged to TMZ he had a relationship with the young man — but insists it only took place AFTER the accuser was an adult. 

    Sesame Workshop honchos tell TMZ … “In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash beginning when he was 16-years-old.  This was a personal relationship, unrelated to the workplace. We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action.” 

    Sesame Workshop officials acknowledge to TMZ they met with the accuser twice and had a number of other communications with him. 

    Clash admits a relationship with the man and says:

    “I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not.” 

    Clash calls the accusations false and defamatory.
