Case closed for Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber and all his Beliebers can breathe a sigh of relief.

CNN has learned that the teen pop star won't face charges regarding an alleged scuffle that erupted at a Canadian laser tag park in October.

A spokeswoman with the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police told CNN that while they can’t speak specifically about the individuals involved in the matter due to their ages, they could say that their investigation into the Bieber case is complete, no charges will be forwarded as the evidence doesn’t support that motion, and that the case is now closed.

Back in October, word spread that Bieber had been accused of assaulting a 12-year-old during a game of laser tag at a facility in Richmond, British Columbia. Among reports that the Grammy nominee allegedly punched the 12-year-old in the face, TMZ cited an unnamed source as saying that Bieber was targeted by his 12-year-old laser tag opponent.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Does Miley need professional help?

I'll be honest: I think Miley is on a slippery slope.

It was reportedly a hallucinogenic herb that many want outlawed in all states. There are major concerns about salvia, and she definitely seemed to have lost control. It’s extremely troubling!

Also, Miley needs some new friends immediately! Who is influencing her to do/try these things, and who filmed her? Those are not friends. She needs to clean house.

What do you think? Should Miley get professional help?! Does she need to clean house?! Let us know in the comments.

Other big stories we're fired up about today:

Michael Moore posts bail money for WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange and Michael Jackson's fans are speaking out! Plus, stars who are big on giving back.

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Kevin Spacey wishes 'Casino Jack' director could enjoy Globes nod

For actor Kevin Spacey, the joy of being nominated for a Golden Globe award for his starring role in “Casino Jack” on Tuesday was tempered by the recent loss of the film’s director, George Hickenlooper.

“[The nomination] is tinged with the melancholy I feel about George passing a month ago and that he’s not here to enjoy it,” Spacey told CNN. “The movie opens Friday; he’s the man who directed me to this performance and there’s no doubt in my mind that it’s a tribute to George. If people want to go out to see the movie because of that I know that would have made George happier than anything.”

Hickenlooper had been promoting the film when he died in Denver on October 30. Spacey said he and the director shared a wonderful collaboration on the movie, which tells the tale of real life Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

'Skating with the Stars': Anyone still watching?

If a "Skating with the Stars" contestant fell in the woods and no one watched, does it count as an elimination? What if another contestant engaged in a feud with the judging panel and no one gave a flip? Is it scandal or ratings desperation?

Those were the question that came out of last night's edition of America's least favorite TV train wreck, which promised a night of thrills, both on the ice and off.

Last week, Brandon Mychal Smith was unable to skate due to stomach issues, forcing pro partner Keauna McLaughlin to impersonate a jilted homecoming queen throughout the show. This week, Keauna again came out by herself - the show needs to give her a bonus for all the forced humiliation - but Brandon eventually appeared, albeit sitting in a chair.

Natalie Portman 'swears' she eats

Natalie Portman gives a powerhouse performance as a tortured ballerina in the psychological thriller "Black Swan," but it's the steamy kiss she shares with Mila Kunis that is on everyone's lips - and Portman completely understands.

“Lesbian scenes, sex scenes, they’re all over the place!” the 29-year-old actress, who has made a career out of playing wholesome characters, tells January's Vogue of today's films. "But because it’s me, people are shocked."
