Rapper Swizz Beatz was slapped with a New York state tax lien while "Elmo" creator Kevin Clash took a leave of absence from "Sesame Street" because of a sex scandal.  Find out more info inside...

"Elmo" creator Kevin Clash has taken a leave of absence from his role on Sesame Street to deal with allegations stemming from an underage sex scandal.

Kevin (who was 45 at the time)  was accused of being sexually involved with a 16-year-old boy (who's now 23) after the accuser revealed their relationship to lawyers at Sesame Workshop.

In response to the revelation, Sesame Workshop told TMZ ...

"In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash beginning when he was 16-years-old. This was a personal relationship, unrelated to the workplace. We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action."

Officials from the company say an investigation was conducted and they found that the allegations of underage sex was unsubstantiated.  But clearly this issue isn't over.

Kevin told TMZ that "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."

So what does that mean for Elmo?

Sesame Workshop said, .

"Kevin insists that these allegations are false and defamatory and he has taken actions to protect his reputation. We have granted him a leave of absence to do so."  And they added, "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."

So it sounds like the Elmo character will live on....Kevin Clash's career at Sesame Street might not.   He's been associated wiht the character for YEARS.  This is a sad situation.

 

 

And another guy with problems.....

Though he's made millions producing for artists like Alicia Keys and Eve, in addition to signing lucrative endorsements with companies like Reebok, producer Swizz Beatz is still millions in debt to the IRS and NY.

The state of NY recently filed a tax lien against Swizz for unpaid taxes from 2010 amounting to $98,246.18 while the IRS says he owes them $2.6 million.  Damn!

While he's constantly ranked as one of hip hop's highest earners, Swizz has been consistently plagued with a slew of taxes issues.  Maybe Mr. Dean needs to hire some new folks to watch his money in the bank and pay those taxes correctly.  Especially when you have umpteen kids and a wife to care for.

So far, he and his reps haven't addressed the tax woes publically.

Also Who Would Have Thought That 2 States Would Actually Legalize Marijuana? El-No.. Say It Ain So. Why Would El-No Accuser Go To His Employer, Rather Than The Police. Their Is No Statue Of Limitation On Rape.

Steve from Blues Clues left

Steve from Blues Clues left because he was balding and he stated at the beginning of his contract with the show he was only to the show for a few years. Googles his interview with the Today show and rosie O'Donnell show

There was more than one man

There was more than one man that played the same character on Blues Clues. And one of them I know for a fact was let go because of his shady dealings with the law.

I knew it was only a matter

I knew it was only a matter of time before this happened (Black man playing Elmo). It happened to Pee wee herman, the man from Blues Clues, Teletubbies, and the list goes on. What's up with all these kid show characters having shady pasts or getting in trouble with the law, like seriously? I guess the kid show biz drives them crazy! LOL And what's with these celebrities not paying their taxes? Dumb Ass! Go ask your sugar mama Alicia for the money, because we all know that's how she keeps you around. It would be funny to see Jay and Bey be put on blast like this, but I doubt it! Because if there's one thing they love it's MONEY and I'm sure they're on top of their taxes.
