The man who accused Sesame Street actor Kevin Clash, the voice of legendary character Elmo, of having a sexual relationship with him while under the age on consent, has admitted he was of an adult age when the pair were together.

In a statement, released through his lawyer the accuser has stated he was of an adult age when the pair were lovers in 2010.

According to TMZ the statement said: "[The accuser] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship. [The accuser] will have no further comment."

Clash had taken a leave of absence from the show to fight the accusations, which claimed the then 45 year-old had sexual relations with a 16 year-old in 2010.

It's unknown why the accuser has revised his version of events, but according to TMZ lawyers on both sides were meeting, up until the release of the statement, to discuss a reported six figure financial settlement.

In a statement Clash admitted he was glad the ordeal was over, he said:

"I am relieved that this painful allegation has been put to rest. I will not discuss it further."

The claims were first unearthed after the actor was discovered to have sent inappropriate emails to his alleged lover from his work email account.
