Say What??? Voice Of Elmo Takes Leave Of Absense Over Allegations Of Relationship With Underage Teen

Everyday countless children get on computers and search for their favorite television character,,Elmo.

Unfortunately for them today, that search will yield some results that may leave mommy and daddy answering some pretty adult questions.

While Elmo himself hasn't done anything wrong of course, the man who plays the voice of the Sesame Street star may just have.

52 year old Kevin Clash ,the voice of Elmo on Sesame Street for 28 years, is taking a leave of absence after allegations surfaced that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy.

"I am a gay man. I have never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a personal and private matter. I had a relationship with the accuser. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to characterize it as something other than what it was," Clash said in a statement issued to ABC News.

"I am taking a break from Sesame Workshop to deal with this false and defamatory allegation," he said.

TMZ reported earlier that Sesame Workshop lawyers recently met with a 23-year-old man who claims he and Clash began a sexual relationship 7 years ago ... when he was 16 and Clash was 45.

"We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action. We met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation. We also conducted a thorough investigation and found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated. Although this was a personal relationship unrelated to the workplace, our investigation did reveal that Kevin exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding Internet usage and he was disciplined," the Sesame Street Workshop statement said.

Sesame Workshop officials tell TMZ the puppet is alive and well: "Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street to engage, educate and inspire children around the world."

As a parent of an almost 2 year old child I hope these allegation are not true. My son likes the Elmo character. And I hope they find the truth to these matters and not be bullied by what the media may lean the story.
