The latest list of California's top tax delinquents which was released by the state now has some new names as well as quite a few repeat offenders, reports Page Six. You can find on the list reality TV queen Tori Spelling along with her husband, Dean McDermott. Tori and Dean have five children together and allegedly owe the Golden State an astonishing $282,655.

This calls to mind how Tori had described her troubles with money in 2013 book 'Spelling It Like It Is', she wrote, "It's no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone's wildest dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can't seem to let go of my expensive tastes. Even when my tastes aren't fancy, they're still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way."

Coming back to the list, comedian Chris Tucker also made the list but blamed "poor accounting and business management" when he settled his huge tax bill after the government placed a $2.5 million lien against him in Georgia around four years ago. According to the list, he is on the hook with the state for around $1.2 million. Ted Field the producer of 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle', the son of Marshall Field, the longtime owner of the Chicago-Sun Times also owes a whopping $20 million to the state. 

As reported by Hollywoodreporter, Field had once made the Forbes list of the world's richest people and had a total tax debt of around $100 million and also drove "a 2009 Nissan GT-R that’s having transmission trouble, which he can’t get fixed."

Amongst others on the list is David Glasser, who was forced out as the COO of the Weinstein Company by Eric Schneiderman, and he allegedly owes $804,892. According to the state, 'Empire' actor Xzibit, listed by his real name Alvin Joiner, owes $231,579. Director Nick Cassavetes, an avid poker player, owes $252,950. Singer Macy Gray, formerly Natalie Hinds, who allegedly owes $240,991, explained three years ago, "I’m a spender, unfortunately. As soon as I get money, I can’t wait to spend it."

It shouldn't be a surprise to see Tori and Dean on this list because the stars have been continuously dogging bankruptcy and overspending rumors for the past few years. Even airing their personal life on tv and social media has taken its toll. Recently, Tori has had two police visits on two separate occasions but has assured her fans that she is doing alright. The 'Tori & Dean' star shared a message on her Instagram which addressed the rumors revolving around the state of her mental health. "I’m strong, I’m amazing, I’m beautiful, I’m wonderful, I’m worthy, I’m loved, I’m brave, I’m sweet, I’m happy, I’m me," she wrote in her Instagram story. 

The 44-year-old's message came just two days after Tori's husband, Dean called the police to check on her. As reported by Page Six, The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that deputies met Spelling in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and briefly interviewed her. Cops determined she was fine and no further action was taken. Just a week before that LAPD responded to a disturbance call at the couple's home. PageSix later confirmed that the call was made over a domestic dispute. 

As reported by The Blast, Spelling was described as a "female" with "possible mental illness" in a dispatch audio.
