When Mario Lopez appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Present” in 2019, a fan requested if he had any “hookup” tales involving his fellow “Saved By the Bell” solid mates. The “Entry” host confirmed his previous relationship with Tiffani Thiessen. “Nonetheless, it wasn’t a hookup … she was my girlfriend for some time, Tiffani Thiessen, who performed Kelly,” Lopez stated. The pair apparently had a critical teenage romance. “It is humorous, ‘trigger I went to common highschool and he or she used to put on my letterman’s jacket from my actual highschool,” he added. Nonetheless, Lopez didn’t point out how their relationship got here to a messy finish.
In his 2014 memoir, “Simply Between Us,” Lopez mentioned courting Thiessen and got here clear about being untrue to her. “I assumed that being loyal to Tiffani was the proper factor to do. However I can not say that I used to be succesful at that age of following by on my noble intentions,” he wrote, by way of E!
Producer Peter Engel spilled the tea on the previous couple’s dramatic on-set break up in his 2016 e-book, “I Was Saved by the Bell: Tales of Life, Love, and Goals That Do Come True.” “[Lopez] was in his dressing room, making out with an additional, and Tiffani got here in, catching him red-handed,” Engel wrote, by way of Radar. Apparently, Thiessen was sporting Lopez’s letterman jacket and “threw it at him” earlier than storming off. Regardless of the dramatic breakup, Lopez and Thiessen have been in a position to salvage their friendship.
