    Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo and star puppeteer for PBS, who the taxpayer-funded network promoted with a documentary called Being Elmo -- "has taken a leave of absence from Sesame Street in the wake of allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy" when he was 45, reported TMZ.

    Clash "adamantly denies" the allegations, but "has acknowledged to TMZ he had a relationship with the young man -- but insists it only took place AFTER the accuser was an adult." The accuser met with lawyers for Sesame Workshop. Clash said "I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not." TMZ added:

    We've learned ... 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.
