Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys, won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on ‘‘Sesame Street.’’ Clash won as outstanding performer in a children’s series at the creative arts ceremony held Friday night. He shared trophies for outstanding preschool children’s series and directing in a children’s series, giving Clash 26 Daytime Emmys for his work on the venerable PBS show. He played Elmo for 28 years before quitting last November. Clash’s lawyer has said that related lawsuits filed against the entertainer are without merit.
Beyoncé settles suit
Beyoncé has settled a New York lawsuit that said she didn’t play fair in a deal for a video game structured around her. Court records show the case was closed Friday after the Grammy Award-winning singer (inset) and Gate Five LLC agreed to drop it. A lawyer for Gate Five says the terms are confidential. A lawyer for Beyoncé hasn’t returned a call seeking comment. Gate Five had said Beyoncé made a lucrative deal for a game called ‘‘Starpower: Beyonce,’’ then demanded a new agreement and abandoned the project. The company says it lost its nearly $7 million investment and 70 people lost their jobs. Beyoncé’s lawyers had said she was within her rights to get out of the deal because Gate Five didn’t have needed financing.
