Dustin Diamond’s abandoned, trashed house finally sells after 2 years

Published

on

Six months before Dustin Diamond passed away in February 2021, he was forced to put his longtime home in Port Washington, Wisconsin up for sale after a bank threatened foreclosure for unpaid dues.

More than two years later, on May 27, 2022, it finally sold for $276,400 to a real estate developer with plans of tearing down the structure and turning it into some type of commercial property, The Post can report.

As to the exact plans of the land, that remains unknown. The Post has reached out for comment.

Best known for his role as Screech Powers in “Saved By the Bell,” Diamond owed $269,326 to Wells Fargo, records show. He had initially put a $68,000 down payment on the home back in 2003 when he purchased the four-bedroom property for $340,000.

The property is made up of four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Before his death, Diamond revealed in an interview with TMZ he didn’t understand how he owed such a huge sum and that a busted water main had flooded his basement and made him lose 30 years of memories.

“Foreclosure means nothing when a house is destroyed … with my items I’ve lost,” Diamond said at the time. “It now feels like Wells Fargo is trying to kick me when I’m down.”

On Feb. 1, 2021, Diamond lost his battle to extensive stage four colon cancer only a month after his diagnosis. He was 44.

The home, which spans 3,000 square feet and is situated on half an acre, has since glided on and off the market until its recent sale. Only exterior photos of the home were included in the previous listing with the description: “great rehab project.”

“Property has been vacant for over a year,” the listing description continues. “Great for investor or handyman owner.”

Now, for the first time since his death, two viral videos take viewers inside the home, which paint a very shocking picture of Diamond’s life.

Described as a hoarder’s den, extensive clutter throughout the video is shown in the office of the home — and in one of the bedrooms and bathrooms of the property.

Clothes are scattered, several bottles collected, medicine and pill bottles are seen throughout on the bathroom sink and tub, and what appears to be feces on the bathroom floor.

It’s unclear if the abandoned house was vandalized or even faced squatters in the time since his passing, or if this was the state Diamond left the home in.

“Honestly this is exactly how I expected Screech to live after high school,” one user joked.

“That’s so sad, is it really his? Did he really live like that?” another user questioned.

“He was our neighbor in Port Washington but he rarely left his home,” another user claimed in the comment section of the video.

According to Ashley — who gave a tour of the home —  the video was recorded back when the house was still on the market. Her realtor had taken her inside to view the property.

Mariah Carey Loves Christmas, Spoiling Her Kids After ‘Messed-Up’ Childhood

Published

on

Not always a Christmas queen. While Mariah Carey’s name has become synonymous with the festive holiday, her childhood wasn’t regal.

“I know a lot of the time people are like, ‘Oh, yay! Look at her! She’s, like, so festive and such a Christmas girl,’ or whatever. But, really, Christmas makes me happy. People think I had this princess-style life or whatever, a kind of fairy-tale existence where I just emerged, like, ‘Here I am!’ And that is not what it is,” Carey, 52 told magazine in a profile published on Friday, November 25.

She continued: “But when you grow up with a messed-up life and then you’re able to have this transformation where you can make your life what you want it to be? That is joy for me. That’s why I want my kids to have everything they can have. I want them to be able to understand that they can be anything they want to be.”

The “Without You” songstress became a mother in April 2011, welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan with ex-husband Nick Cannon. (The Masked Singer host, 42, is also father to 9 other kids and is currently expecting baby No. 12, his second with Alyssa Scott.) As Carey and Cannon continue to coparent their twins, the Grammy Award winner goes all out for the holiday season.

“I create my own Christmas moment. I mean, Santa Claus visits us. He comes with his reindeer. I am not exaggerating — this is the truth,” the New York native told W. “By the way, before my kids were born, I did all the same types of things. That’s just how it is with me and Santa and the reindeer.”

She added: “I love giving them gifts because the act of opening up a ton of presents is something I wasn’t able to do as a child.”

The Meaning of Mariah Carey author kicked off her 2022 festivities with a rendition of “All I Want for Christmas Is You” during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, November 24. As Carey crooned her hit song, the 11-year-olds made surprise cameos as they popped out of present boxes to dance alongside their mama.

“Happy Thanksgiving!!!🍁,” the Christmas Princess author wrote via Instagram on Thursday, sharing footage from the NBC broadcast. “Grateful and so proud of my beautiful kids Roc and Roe, grateful for the lambily and for the precious moments in life. ❤️❤️❤️ Now it’s reaaaallly time!!! 🎄🎅🏼.”
