Kevin Clash

TICKLED An Accuser

Dropped Sex Allegations

Kevin Clash ... one down, four to go.

A man who accused the former Elmo puppeteer of underage sex has dropped his lawsuit in New York ... saying he wants to focus on his career.

If you're keeping score ... that leaves four men who've sued Clash for allegedly engaging in sexual escapades with them when they were underage.

The lawyer for the man who dropped his case tells us ... there's been NO settlement, and his client stands by his story.  The lawyer says his client can re-file his case later ... though he's not saying that's going to happen.

Still ... Clash has to be relieved that one of these kids is not like the other.

Get out your checkbook, Kevin. Even if they say there's NO settlement.....there's money changing hands somewhere.

He got greedy because of his status and had his hand in (up) every pot. Now he is paying the consequences, literally, he will be broke paying the accusers to drop the allegations. And poor Elmo will be forever stigmatized.

There's still enough of them to put him in prison, I hope. At the very least his career is over.

Sounds like his lawyer not confident of getting decent lawyer $$$ and a guaranteed slam dunk airtight case against Clash. Something must have come up to pizz on the kid's case. No way especially with concurrent plaintiffs a lawyer walks from this kind of $$$ potential. No way.
