A 23-year-old man claims he had a sexual relationship with Kevin Clash seven years ago, when he was only 16. Clash is best known as Elmo from "Sesame Street". He says he did have a relationship with the accuser, but only when he was an adult. Sesame Workshop already investigated this guy's claims, and found no basis for them. Clash has taken a leave of absence to deal with this, but Elmo will continue to appear on the show. He adds, "I am a gay man. I have never been ashamed of this or tried to hide it, but felt it was a personal and private matter." His bosses at Sesame Workshop actually have his back on this. They say the accuser came to them back in June, and they asked the accuser to produce evidence, which he never did. Ultimately, they concluded that there was no basis for the accusations. The accuser got a lawyer, and he went with Andreozzi and Associates, a firm that represented one of the victims of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Most importantly, Elmo will not die. Sesame says, "Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of 'Sesame Street to engage, educate and inspire children around the world." Clash has been portraying Elmo on "Sesame Street" since 1985.

That’s not the only reality show with secret lovers! There's been a love connection between Simon Cowell’s groups on "X Factor" this season.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted together in New York City on Sunday. A source says, "I saw Selena go into the hotel around 5:40pm and not even three hours later, Justin went in. I saw him leave around 11pm." Another source says they had dinner together at a place called Morandi. Perhaps they were trying to come up with a plan to answer questions by the media during this “break” – although I’m quite certain this is just a bump in the road and they will be back together again shortly.
