Looks like this scumbag wants more money.

Justice needs to be served one way or the other, but...

Last week, the Smoking Gun took a look at Stephens, a struggling model/actor who has been arrested a few times on charges ranging from passing a bad check to reckless driving to robbing a former employer at knifepoint.

...the accuser isn't exactly holding a strong hand.

Cythraul: Looks like this scumbag wants more money.


No. Looks like he was paid off to change his story (it's a fact he was as the article states) and it was eating at him.

That's an interpretation. I could just as easily interpret that his lawyers told him he could fleece more money.

So let's not jump to conclusions.

FTA: (he was reportedly crying during the negotiations while saying he didn't want to sign)

Reported by whom? His lawyers?

Considering his past, my guess is he wants more money.

He has been arrested in the past for knife point robbery from a music manager for whom he interned, passing bad checks and reckless driving.

He discredits his story even more with each flip-flop.

Or, as has been said, Someone was convinced they could get MORE money.

If the Sesame folks did an investigation, I can't believe they would cover for someone having sex with an underage boy.

Sesame Workshop has way too much to lose to go all Penn State. Their business IS products and entertainment for children. To harbor someone who had sex with a minor would kill the company dead.

Either way, he blew it. Without compelling evidence, he's not even going to have the 100k or so.

Over the weekend, TMZ reported that Clash had paid Stephens $125,000 to recant his story

My take away from all of this is that I had no idea puppeteering paid so well.

If you believe a guy who robbed someone at knife point. I'm not saying it didn't happen, but I need more than his word on it, especially after he's changed his story so much.

Clash should just run with it and change the act's name to Pickle Me Elmo. Lemons...lemonade.

The claim I was referring to was being paid $125,000 by the accused to change his story.

You don't need an investigation or anything to show receipt of a $125,000 payment.

While it wouldn't prove that the rest of his story is true, it would help his credibility, which appears to be in need of some help at the moment.

Ah, yes, well, a $125k payout would be simple enough to prove, wouldn't it?

So get the police involved. Either a crime was committed or not. If so, he's required to give evidence. If not, he's guilty of extortion. In either case someone should be jailbound here.

And it's totally impossible that someone (an abuser) would prey on someone with such a history, or that a troubled soul (perhaps there was some OTHER abuse - not Elmo-related - in his past) would again find himself in trouble?

See, this proves that sexuality is nurture rather than nature. Why else would a young man who watched Sesame Street as a child be attracted to Elmo?

It's so obvious here that the homosexual lifestyle of the principle parties is responsible for the complete lack of morality exhibited by these individuals.

Wake up America! When will you see that homosex is corrupting our society?

This idiot little twink doesn't get it. He accepted a settlement. He doesn't now get to say "Here's your money back. I was pressured." He has no credibility now. Actually, he had very little to begin with. Had he any proof of this, he would have gone to the police and worried about the civil liability part later. He's trying to shake Clash down.

Not really.

Unless you consider changing your story for money as an aid to credibility.

At best he has made it impossible to believe him one way or the other, and in the absence of any evidence...well it's time to move on to the next grift/armed robbery.

FTA: and sources say he's happy to give up the $125,000.

Here's another interpretation:
give up some money (that I'd have to anyway) to make MORE money

No, that's very plausible. They are easy to prey on, and they are easy to discredit.

Except if the lawyers were any good, there would be papers saying he wanted to avoid the trial and settle out of court without admitting guilt. The money would only prove that he settled.

Ya know, I bet somewhere in a Google cache is a post on some forum stating the very same thing in regards to Penn St., especially in defense of Paterno.
