"Reopen Sesame Sex Suit" : Accuser wants to undo Elmo deal.

The man who accused Elmo's puppeteer of sexual misconduct reportedly wants to recant his recantation.

Sheldon Stephens, 24, last week withdrew sensational claims that, as an underage teen, he had a wild fling with Kevin Clash, the voice behind the beloved Muppet Elmo.

Now Stephens is interviewing lawyers in hopes of ripping up the $125,000 deal he reached with Clash, 52, to deny there was any illegal sex, according to TMZ.
