Mario Lopez revealed in his memoir Just Between Us that he had a one-night stand with a “mega pop star,” but refused to name the star out of respect for his wife.
He mentioned the rendezvous on Ellen on Oct. 2nd,.
“I’m trying not to give too much away without giving too much away,” Mario told Ellen DeGeneres. “It was maybe six or seven years ago… eight years ago?”
According to sources, the “mega pop star” was none other than Britney Spears — and it happened in Las Vegas!

At the time of their hookup, both Spears and Lopez were single. The pop princess, 32, split from husband Kevin Federline in 2006, while Lopez was on a break with then-girlfriend Karina Smirnoff from 2006 to 2008. The ’90s teen heartthrob was several years out from his brief and failed marriage to model Ali Landry.
The Extra host also told DeGeneres that he and the newly revealed mystery lady still remain “friendly.” In December 2013, Lopez joined Spears onstage for the opening night of her Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me.
Mario & Britney? That could have been an interesting couple.
