A source close to the former "Saved By The Bell" actor, Dustin Diamond, has revealed details of the star leaving the hospital for a short period before being readmitted to the emergency room hours before losing his battle with cancer.

According to the insider, the comedic actor went home on Tuesday or Wednesday but was rushed back to the hospital by Thursday, as he was reportedly suffering through pain.

The source further said a batch of tests were run on Diamond under suspicion that he was suffering from pneumonia. That was when the discovery was made that the cancer had spread to other parts of his body.

On Monday, February 1, a representative for the 44-year-old actor announced that Diamond had passed away. The insider exclaimed that Dustin's death had occurred very suddenly, adding:

His passing was not supposed to happen this quickly. No one knew the kind of pain he was in — only he knew.”

Diamond's manager of many years, Roger Paul, said that Diamond's girlfriend, Tash Jules was with the actor when he took his final breaths. The two had been a couple for a year.

Paul added the former child star was terrified throughout his chemo treatment, but his sense of humor enabled him to push himself to remain positive throughout the ordeal.

"The actor delayed seeking medical attention for the visible lump on his throat, fearing people would ridicule him."

Several of Diamond's former co-stars on the hit 90s series remembered their colleague and friend. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who portrayed Zack Morris, said Diamond had the ability to create moments of magic on the set for him.

Meanwhile, the series' executive producer, Peter Engel, took a trip down memory lane about all how a much younger Diamond would have him in stitches through his acting approach, adding:

“He had me laughing for 11 years and I’m laughing now remembering. It makes me feel better.”

After a few bumps along the road throughout his career, Diamond found himself on the set of Dr. Oz in 2016 to apologize to his former co-stars after the release of his tell-all book, which revealed some upsetting inside information about his castmates.

After having fallen on tough times, Diamond admitted to allowing the book to take advantage of his situation, adding the claims made in the tell-all were upsetting to him.

Dan Block, a dear friend of Diamond's, shared how the actor delayed seeking medical attention for the visible lump on his throat, fearing people would ridicule him. He was eventually admitted to the hospital on January 14.

The most poignant tribute came courtesy of Engel, who got to spend 11 years watching Diamond grow up on "Saved By The Bell." Engel said he would always cherish Diamond, who will forever be the lovable 'Screech' in his eyes.
