Tori Spelling receives second visit from police amid reports of another nervous breakdown this week
Tori Spelling is reportedly cracking under immense pressure and mounting debt, as cops visited her home for the second time in a week.
Tori Spelling may not be in a good place, as her home with Dean McDermott was visited by police for the second time in a week, amid reports that she is going through a nervous breakdown. Spelling is reportedly under a lot of pressure - making alimony payments on behalf of her husband, taking care of their five children, while McDermott remains out of work and remains heavily in debt.
Witnesses reported that several officers showed up in two police cars outside their Los Angeles home and talked to McDermott, who last called 911 less than a week ago to report that his wife was having a nervous breakdown. This incident occurs a few days after the family celebrated the first birthday of their youngest son, Beau.
A source close to Spelling told Us Weekly that things were not looking good for the 'Beverly Hills 90210' actress, who was under a lot of pressure related to finances and her marriage. The source said that, "Her friends and family are all very, very worried."
Spelling has been struggling to raise her five children Liam, Stella, Hattie, Finn, and Beau as the primary breadwinner, as McDermott is constantly in and out of work and has been outed as an unfaithful spouse. However, Spelling is still trying to hold the family together. The source said, "You would think the cheating, money problems and constant arguing would be enough for Tori to decide to divorce Dean, but she refuses to even discuss it."
McDermott left his previous wife, Mary Jo Eustace for Spelling, who also left her previous spouse, Charlie Shanian, after she had an affair with McDermott. However, despite her marriage with McDermott falling apart due to his infidelity and financial irresponsibility, the source revealed, "Tori believes a divorce would label her as a failure."
"They are heavily in debt," the insider revealed. "Tori has had enough of Dean’s moaning about not being a working actor and is demanding he get a real job to support their family." But McDermott hasn't it taken seriously, as he "will start a cooking school or take up another professional hobby, then give it up." It's Spelling's 72-year-old mother, Candy who "pays for all of the kids’ expenses," the source revealed.
In fact, Spelling not only has to raise kids, but she also has been paying alimony to McDermott's ex-wife, Eustace, to take care of his 19-year-old son with her, Jack. In an interview with Us Weekly, Eustace, 55, disclosed, "My son had gone to university, and Dean was supposed to pay his rent, and he wasn’t."
She described her dire financial straits, saying, "So it was just a nightmare in the fall because we had set up this whole thing, and it looked like I was going to have back to court. Then my son’s rent checks were bouncing, so it was not a good situation. So, I was on that path to go back to court again in November," Eustace said, expressing her intention to sue McDermott for the money he owed her.
Eustace then explained that Spelling took the burden upon herself to cover McDermott's behind. "That’s when Tori reached out to me and basically said that she would be covering the alimony because Dean didn’t have any money, and she would be doing it," she shared.
Eustace described how the last few months had been, saying, "She did a couple of payments for it because she said she had gotten a job, so she could cover that. And then I guess about three weeks ago... it was due again, and it didn’t come through." Spelling apologized later and sent Eustace a text that read, "Everything has been a really, really stressful time."
Eustace said that Spelling's family situation seemed a lot to handle, which may have led to her breakdown. "I mean, I would assume that it’s a very stressful chaotic situation over there," she said. "And so, I don’t know how that manifested so specifically, but I think it’s just chaotic from what I understand, and from what I’ve seen when I’ve been around it. It’s just chaos all the time."
