Just two months after suffering a mental breakdown, friends of former Beverly Hills 90210 star Tori Spelling say that she has left her husband, Dean McDermott, and run into the arms of her mom, Candy Spelling. Candy has never been a fan of McDermott, and she is telling her daughter “I told you so,” but the mother of five apparently has nowhere else to turn.
Tori and Candy have not had a good relationship since Aaron Spelling died back in 2006, and she admitted as recently as 2014 that there wasn’t much communication between the two. But, the 45-year-old is suddenly more open to burying the hatchet with her mom if it means she can escape the financial woes and marital drama she has with McDermott.

Tori’s dad was a TV mogul who had a $600 million estate at the time of his passing. He named his wife Candy as the executor of his will, and he left his children – Tori and her brother, Randy – just $800,000 apiece, and Tori blew through the cash in record time.
She and her husband continued to spend recklessly even though they were deeply in debt, and they have moved several times, with their current home saddling them with $10,000 a month in rent. According to Radar Online, Candy has recently attempted to take some of the pressure of the couple by helping them with bills.
“She’s been paying the couple’s monthly rent, buying groceries and paying for the children’s private school,” said an insider, but Candy refused to bail her daughter out of a $700,000 IRS bill and six figures worth of credit card debt.
The source goes on to suggest that now that Tori is at Candy’s house, maybe her husband will see how dire their situation is and try to find a way to keep the family together. He is now in charge of changing diapers, cooking meals, and driving the kids to and from school, and the insider claims he is exhausted.
Candy has convinced her daughter to give McDermott a break, and the kids are now spending two nights a week at their grandmother’s mansion. But, it could just be a first step to getting McDermott away from Tori for good.

The insider claims that Candy could no longer sit back and watch Tori unravel, so she has opened her doors for her daughter and hopes she is finally ready to walk.
All of this comes at the same time a bank has slapped another lawsuit on Tori, claiming she owes them thousands. According to Los Angeles Superior Court documents, Citibank – acting as a debt buyer – filed a motion to collect $5,000 from the actress.
The documents claim that Tori Spelling has refused to pay the money that she owes despite Citibank’s demands. This is just one of multiple lawsuits against the actress for failing to pay credit card bills and taxes.
