Celebrity Gossip website TMZ is reporting that actor Dustin Diamond has died. It was reported in early January that Diamond was diagnosed with stage four cancer after going to the hospital in Florida after feeling ill.
Diamond, who starred in Saved By The Bell and many of it's spinoffs, had struggled with his career after 'Bell" and also found himself in legal and financial trouble through the years. He was one of the only cast members not invited to be in the reboot which runs on Peacock, NBC's streaming service.
TMZ says "A rep for Dustin tells us he died Monday morning. His condition had greatly declined since last week, and he was taken off of breathing machines in an attempt to get him to hospice care. His GF was by his side when he passed away." Dustin was 44.
Mario Lopez was the first of Dustin's former co-stars to Tweet about his passing.
