Kevin Clash — Tickled that 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.
