Nov 20 - The day's top showbiz news and headlines including Kevin Clash - the voice of Elmo - resigns, Bon Jovi announces cheap seats for concerts, and Rihanna performs in London. Bob Mezan reports.
Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo, has resigned from Sesame Street amidst a new lawsuit accusing him of having sex with an underage boy. The accuser claims Clash had sex with him in 1993 - when he was 15. Sesame Workshop released a statement saying that Clash has "concluded that he can no longer be effective in his job." Clash's previous accuser recanted his allegations last week, changing his story to say that the two did have sex, but as consenting adults. So far, he's had no comment on the new allegations. Bon Jovi is giving a treat to fans. The band announced that it will offer tickets to their upcoming tour starting at $19.50 - a rare bargain for such a big act. The tour, called "Because We Can," will play arenas across the U.S., Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa and launch in February. Rihanna touched down in London on Monday for the latest leg of her "7 countries, 7 days, 7 shows tour" - the same day her new album, "Unapologetic," hit stores. The singer performed her latest single, "Diamonds." Her final stop will be in New York City on Tuesday (November 20). Finally, Selena Gomez was in Los Angeles to celebrate her new partnership with Adidas' NEO Label - coincidentally the same brand that Justin Bieiber signed to just last month.
