After a brief lull that almost let us forget that happened, the story has returned in full force, with one of Clash's accusers bringing a lawsuit against Clash making the details of his allegations more clear and forever connecting the phrases "Elmo puppeteer" and "crystal meth sex party" in the American psyche.
