Dustin Diamond Faces Headaches, Too
Aside from his health scare, he previously went through hard times after directing his 2006 sex tape titled, "Screeched: Saved By The Smell."
"You know, I definitely got some money off of it but it wasn't worth what the fallout was. I mean people to this day, they look down on me,' he said during his interview on "Where Are They Now?" special.
Some fans alleged that this might be the reason why the actor was also clueless about the franchise's revival on Peacock.
Per his friend, Dan Block, Diamond did not know about it until it went public. Block then told The Sun that his friend is a good guy who deserves a second chance.
