"Saved By The Bell" star Dustin Diamond passed away from cancer on February 1, 2021, at the age of 44, and throughout his life, he was haunted by the failure of his romantic relationships.
Fans of the 1989 Disney teen sitcom "Saved by the Bell" were shocked by the news that actor Dustin Diamond who played geeky Samuel "Screech" Powers had passed away in February 1, 2021, from cancer.
The actor was just 44 and had been diagnosed with brain cancer only weeks before his death. The actor was divorced and had a tempestuous love life that included a history of alleged domestic violence.
GOODBYE TO DUSTIN DIAMOND
Diamond's career took off at the age of 11, and over the next 13 years, he was inextricably linked to the character that would shape his life: the geeky, awkward, and hapless Samuel "Screech" Powers.
When the "Saved by the Bell" franchise ground to a halt, Diamond took up stand up comedy and landed a few roles in films, but unlike his former co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, and Elizabeth Berkley, he did not move on to bigger and better things.
Diamond's life was tempestuous and included a series of incidents that put him back in the headlines for the worse possible reasons.
“Dustin did not suffer. He did not have to lie submerged in pain. For that, we are grateful.”
Over the last decades, Diamond's life was tempestuous and included a series of incidents that put him back in the headlines for the worse possible reasons. In 2002, Diamond started dating Beth Musolff, a mother of two he had met in a bar, and the two moved in together.
Musolff and Diamond's relationship lasted three years, and she would later open up about their life together. According to Mosolff, Diamond was aggressive and "paranoid," and was frequently verbally abusive.
SEX TAPES AND MARRIAGE
In 2006 Diamond was involved in yet another scandal when a private sex tape he had made was made public. By then, Diamond was already dating his future wife, Jennifer Misner, who is the director of sales and marketing for a Holiday Inn Express in Pennsylvania.
Sadly, Misner and Diamond lost a child in 2004. Misner conceived, but unfortunately, it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy and they lost the baby. In 2009 the couple formalized their union and tied the knot.
Unfortunately, the couple split up after four years of marriage and had no children. A year after the divorce, Diamond met Amanda Schutz and fell in love again. Schultz is a professional clown and the two were drawn together by their love of comedy.
Schultz, whose clown name is Loli Pop, owns a business that provides entertainment to children's parties and events. In 2014 Diamond proposed and the couple became engaged but the relationship was fraught with drama.
In December 2014, Diamond was arrested after an altercation in a bar in Port Washington Wisconsin, during which he brandished a switchblade. He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, and Schultz with disorderly conduct.
The actor was sentenced to four months in prison and ended up serving three. The relationship with Schultz fell apart shortly after, and the clown called off the engagement. Diamond sold his home in Port Washington and moved to Florida in 2020.
Sadly, the new life he was hoping for was short-lived. By the time Diamond became aware he was ill, his extremely aggressive cancer was far advanced.
His manager asked for privacy for his family and revealed that he was accompanied by two loved ones in his last moments. R.I.P. Dustin Diamond.
