In the latest Us Weekly, Dustin Diamond
(Screech) has come forward with shocking claims about his Saved by the Bell
co-stars' drug use and promiscuity.
"I could smell a certain 'smoke,' wafting from the crack" underneath his castmates' dressing rooms, he says, in reference to their alleged marijuana use.
He also claims that Mark-Paul Gosselaar
used steroids in the early 90's before starring in Saved by the Bell: The College Years
. "He suddenly exploded with manliness, loading 25 pounds of muscle on his once-scrawny frame in, oh, about a month." Gosselarr has since responded to the magazine, saying "We weren't in rehab and Mr. Belding
wasn't my crack dealer."
Diamond then describes what was going on backstage between the stars: "If Kelly [Tiffani Thiessen
] was interested in Slater [Mario Lopez
] one week, then backstage there was a lot going between them in Mario [Lopez]'s room," he tells the new Us Weekly. "Then, if Jessie [Elizabeth Berkley
] kisses Zack, then you know Elizabeth Berkley is going in Mark-Paul's room."
The full interview can be read in Us Weekly, on sale now.
