“Extra” host Mario Lopez, who starred as A.C. Slater on “Saved By The Bell” as a teen, has penned a very revealing autobiography.
In his book “Just Between Us”, he reveals that he lost his virginity at age 12 and even got a girl pregnant at the age of 15. Yikes!
Lopez, who has daughter Gia, four, and 12-month-old son Dominic, now realizes how quickly he grew up.
In his book he explains, “I started having sex so young. The day before my 13th birthday. Now that I’m a dad, I look back and I think, ‘Oh my God!’ But you’ve got to understand, when you’re growing up in the hood, everybody grows up fast.”
The hunky star even revealed he got a girl pregnant when he was on 15 and was prepared to get a full-time job to support the unborn child and mother. But the girl had the pregnancy terminated.
He said, ”I could have a kid who is 25 years old. That’s unbelievable.”
Mario also opened up about his short marriage with Ali Landry, which was annulled two weeks after their wedding in 2004 when photographs of him and another woman at his bachelor party started to surface. Ali has spoken about his cheating in interviews previously.
Mario explained the situation, “I got inebriated and a little too friendly with a young lady. When it was time to return home, lightning hit me with the truth: I wasn’t in love. But I walked down the aisle. Ali was hurt and angry, rightfully so.”
The dimpled star has been married to Courtney Mazza since 2012.
One thing he didn’t want to reveal was that he reportedly date-raped a woman in 1993.
Mario’s former “Saved By The Bell” co-star Dustin Diamond, who played the nerdy “Screech”, wrote about it in his tell-all book.
He claims that Mario “lured [a girl] back to his pad… and was forced to have sex against her will.”
NBC’s lawyers reportedly stepped in to maintain the image of their teen stars, allegedly paying the girl to keep quiet.
Dustin Diamond wrote, “And my understanding is that it wasn’t a boatload of cash, either, somewhere around fifty grand.”
