The gay man who was wined and dined at age 18 by the then 48-year-old puppeteer Kevin Clash has been unmasked as a gay escort who made his living fleecing gullible entertainment industry down low gays.
The Smoking Gun identified Pennsylvania resident Sheldon Stephens, 23, as the man who attempted to cash in on a lawsuit that alleged he was only 16 when he met Clash, the voice of Sesame Street’s famed Elmo muppet.
Stephens, a sometime model with hazel eyes, describes himself on his Facebook page’s “About” page as “a rare breed. I’m very spontaneous and random… I’m determined and goal oriented. My destiny is laid on a solid gold brick pathway……. MY FUTURE IS BRIGHT and never will it dim.”
