Mario Lopez revealed in his book, Just Between Us, that he had a one-night stand with a famous singer.
Mario would not identify the “mega pop star” by name (not even sharing the information with his wife). However, insiders have revealed the woman’s identity.
Mario appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on October 2 and explained why he wrote the book. He said, “When a man turns 40, it’s an important time to pause and reflect on how he got there, and to make a mature plan for the future, and what better way than to write it down? People have asked me a bunch of stuff over the years… it’s stuff I could really get into in the book as opposed to having the opportunity on TV. When I decided I was going to do something like this, I just said, ‘Alright, I’m going to be unfiltered and just put everything out there.”
“You also admit that you had a one-night stand with a major pop star,” probed Ellen. He replied, “Well, yeah. I’m trying not to give too much away without giving too much away… it was maybe six or seven years ago… eight years ago?” It was while they were both single. He added that the hookup took place in Vegas and they’re still “friendly.”
