He stands accused of inappropriate sexual relations with boys under the age of 18; Clash previously denied all of the allegations against him.

Clash attorney Michael Berger wrote in a brief Friday:

"There are two applicable types of statutes of limitations, a six-year one based on when the right of action has accrued, and a three-year one based on when the alleged victim turned 18 and was therefore no longer under the disability of being a minor."

According to Clash's camp, both have lapsed.

So, this actually happened in Pennsylvania this week...

When a receptionist from an Ambridge doctor's office phoned to remind student Travis Clawson that he had an upcoming appointment, the call went to voicemail.

No biggie, right?

Except the receptionist heard the words "shooting" and "school" on the message… which led her to contact the police… who notified school officials… who instituted a lockdown of every school in the country.

After 20 minutes, Clawson was finally tracked down in the guidance office and it was determined that the receptionist simply heard the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song on his voicemail, which refers to "shooting some ball outside of the school."

The mother of Michael Jordan's alleged love child never planned to file a paternity suit against the NBA legend, but the child himself reportedly insisted.

According to TMZ, Pamela Smith had no desire to sue Jordan until her son pleaded with her to make his (alleged) dad admit paternity and pay support.

Pamela Smith is suing Michael for just that, paternity and child support, claiming MJ got her pregnant while he was still married to Juanita Vanoy.

Sources close to Smith, who says Jordan knocked her up in 1995, has always had a good relationship with Michael and doesn't need the money.

He's one of the few big-time celebrities who is also a big-time Republican.

But Clint Eastwood has veered from the viewpoint of many Conservatives in one regard: the actor signed the American Foundation for Equal Rights’s “Friend of the Court” brief this week.

In doing so, the actor became one of over 100 prominent Republicans to support this gay rights organization's document, which it has filed with the Supreme Court.

A new rumor suggests that Jay Leno will retire from The Tonight Show next spring. For real this time. Seriously. No backsies for a change.

Jay Leno on Set

A pair of high level NBC executives say the network is concerned that Jimmy Kimmel's move to 11:35 p.m. on ABC is sucking up all the younger late-night viewers - and that Jimmy Fallon should therefore be installed as Tonight Show host before it's too late.

The would-be Miss Delaware Teen USA must have been really hard up for cash, or really bored, because the infamous Melissa King video only paid her $1,500.

Melissa King initially denied she's the one in the XXX video that made the rounds last week, though she later sort of admitted it in a series of re-Tweets.

The guys behind the adult site, GirlsDoPorn (dot) com, also posted a release form on their website, in which Melissa identifies herself by name.

So it's totally her. Not that this wasn't essentially clear already.

The truly amazing things about this - beyond the basic, obvious fact that the gorgeous Miss Delaware Teen USA starred in a PORN movie - are that:

Rihanna and Chris Brown are going to make it work.

The singer seems very confident of this fact in her new Elle UK cover story, telling the magazine that her new single is symbolic of their relationship.

"'Stay' is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever," says Rihanna, who performed it live at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

"You don't have that feeling with everybody. You don't want to let go of it. I would definitely say that [Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with."

Their level of devotion? Pretty high at this point.

Rihanna and Chris Brown celebrated her 25th birthday in Hawaii last month, and she accompanied him and his mother to court a few weeks ago.
