Mario Lopez teased in his tell-all memoir that he once shared a one-night stand with an unnamed “mega pop star,” and now sources close to the actor and television host have confirmed that it was none other than Britney Spears.
Lopez shared some details of the night, which he said took place many years ago in Las Vegas.
“I’m trying not to give too much away without giving too much away,” Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres on October 2. “It was maybe six or seven years ago… eight years ago?”
Now several sources close to Lopez have confirmed to Us Weekly that the mystery woman was Britney.
The timing would work out. At the time Mario described, both he and Britney were single after just getting out of relationships. Spears had split from husband Kevin Federline in 2006, and Mario was in an off-again phase in his on and off relationship with Katrina Smirnoff.
Lopez also dropped another hint that the mystery woman was Britney Spears. He told Ellen that the two remained “friendly,” and Us Weekly noted that the two are indeed still friends, and that Mario even joined Britney on stage for the opening night of her Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me.
The alleged tryst with Britney Spears wasn’t the only sordid detail included in the book. Mario Lopez also revealed that he has been a playboy for much of his life, calling sex his “drug of choice.” Lopez said he lost his virginity one day before his 13th birthday, and fathered a child when he was 15, but the mother ultimately chose to terminate.
“I could have a kid who is 25 years old. That’s unbelievable,” Lopez said.
His troubles with relationships continued. Mario Lopez went on to marry actress Ali Landry, but their marriage lasted just two weeks after she found out that he had been a bit “too friendly” with a woman at his bachelor party. In the memoir, Lopez admitted that he was not actually in love with Landry.
