Tori Spelling basks in net worth of $500k despite mountain of debt, charges $95 from fans for virtual hang out
Apart from her role as Donna Martin on the '90s American teen drama ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’, Tori Spelling has been in the news a lot for issues concerning her finances. The 47-year-old is yet again making headlines for charging fans $95 for a 5 min-session of virtual meet and greet. Spelling is planning on contributing the benefits from the online hangout session with her fans towards Feeding America, to help those who are affected the most due to the ongoing pandemic.
She shared the poster for the forthcoming event on her Instagram and wrote, “I’m so excited to work with @meetcandi to do individual virtual Meet & Greets with you guys on June 6th at 5pm CST ( that’s 3pm PST/ 6pm EST). Great present for a friend, family member, or yourself. We can chat 90210 (Donna Martin Graduates!), Masked Singer, kids, life, quarantine? Up to you. And, everyone gets a 5 min one on one session with me ❤️. Proceeds from my event go to a charity near and dear to me @feedingamerica.”
Spelling had organized a similar video chat with fans last month charging $95 from each individual. However, the profit from the session was used for her own benefit and it wasn’t well-received by fans. Her husband and Canadian actor Dean McDermott later issued a statement defending her where he said that his wife is one of the most hard-working professionals in the entertainment industry and by raising money, she was only trying to support her family as all the production of all the show has come to a halt due to the global health crisis.
However, despite being vocal about their financial issues and several reports suggesting that they owe up to $1.2 million in taxes and unpaid credit bills, the couple recently moved into a mansion worth $3.7 million. Their new home is said to consist of a private sauna, pool, waterfall, two master suites, a wet bar, and a gourmet kitchen among many other amenities.
Allegedly, Spelling is worth $500,000. Her producer father Aaron Spelling only left a fraction of his fortune with her. “Spelling received only $800,00 from her father, which hardly covered her lavish tastes,” reports CheatsSheet. While meeting the needs of a lavish lifestyle consumed a lot of her savings from years of work, Spelling also admitted to having lost a lot in failed real estate deals in an interview with People. “We’re not perfect, we have made a lot of choices financially with real estate that didn’t work out,” she said. As per The Sun, the actress is yet to pay her lawsuit with American Express Bank and the bank had to enlist Los Angeles Sheriff’s office to ensure the couple paid their dues of $88,731.25.
The ‘Scary Movie 2’ actress is currently residing in her new mansion with her husband and five children. She even told Daily Mail that her family is spending their time in lockdown fighting over what to what on TV.
