Monday gossip roundup: Justin Bieber performs ‘Cry Me a River’ after Gomez breakup

Justin Bieber is dealing with being dumped by Selena Gomez the only way he knows how: through music. The 18-year-old Canadian pop star treated fans to a stripped-down acoustic version of Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me a River” — a song inspired by Timberlake’s split from Britney Spears — at a tour stop over the weekend, according to People magazine. As for actually addressing the breakup, Bieber still sounds pretty shaken up. “I don’t know what’s going on in my life,” he said in an interview with Open House Party radio before the show. “To even assess that, it doesn’t make sense because I have not made any comment.”

Selena Gomez may not be as big a Justin Bieber fan as she was a month ago, but at least the Canadian pop star gets the infant vote. Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr tells Us Weekly that Flynn, her 21-month-old son with husband Orlando Bloom, loves music and dancing — and Bieber’s in particular. “The other day we were in South Africa, I turned on the TV and Justin Bieber’s documentary was on,” Kerr says. “I said, ‘Flynn! Bieber!’ and he said, ‘Bie-ber.’ I said, ‘Bieber Fever’ and he said, ‘Bieber Fever.’ I thought it was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”

Ashley Greene knows that the relationship drama between her “Twilight” co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson has been getting a lot of attention — especially after Stewart’s cheating scandal this summer — but Greene hopes all the hubbub doesn’t get in the way of the release of the franchise’s final film. “Hopefully it won’t taint it and people will still be able to enjoy the movie,” she tells Seventeen magazine. “I think a lot of people see us as our characters. I really want them to still be able to do that.”

Kevin Clash, the man behind “Sesame Street” star Elmo, has taken a leave of absence from the popular children’s show amid allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy, according to Radar Online. “We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation. We also conducted a thorough investigation and found the allegation of underage conduct to be unsubstantiated,” a spokesman for Sesame Workshop says, according to Radar Online. “Although this was a personal relationship unrelated to the workplace, our investigation did reveal that Kevin exercised poor judgment and violated company policy regarding Internet usage, and he was disciplined.” No date has been given for Clash’s return to the show. The star of the documentary “Being Elmo” reportedly told another media outlet recently, “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.”

Shia LaBeouf
can’t enjoy a drink in peace, apparently. The “Transformers” star hit up a dingy South London pub recently, surprising the regulars, and the evening wasn’t without incident. “No one could believe that a well-known Hollywood star had docked up at a bar in [this neighborhood],” a visitor to the Hobgoblin in New Cross tells the Sun. “Everyone was getting their photos taken with him.” Things took a bad turn, though, when a student stole LaBeouf’s baseball cap. “I think he was just joking, but Shia didn’t like it,” the source says. “The guy just took it off him and wouldn’t give it back. He tried to get it back and they ended up tussling. It was handbags, really. But it shows that even Hollywood stars can’t avoid grief down this way.”
