Someone called the cops to Beverly Hills 90210 alum Tori Spelling’s home early yesterday morning after the actress broke down into what appeared to be a full-blown panic attack. In the police audio recording, the caller used the words “mentally ill” to describe Spelling, and when the cops arrived, her husband Dean McDermott looked anxious and upset while keeping his head down and pacing outside of the home. Has the pressure and stress of juggling five small children, work, a marriage, and money problems become too much for Spelling to handle?
According to Radar Online, McDermott was home during the incident, but it is unclear whether or not he made the call to police. Once officers arrived, they determined that Spelling was not a danger to herself or others, there was no discussion of a psychiatric hold, and she did not go to the hospital.

The 44-year-old’s best friend, Mehran Farhat, arrived shortly after the incident to console Spelling.
“The last year has been really tough on Tori. She has a ton of pressure and stress, with the kids, work and her marriage,” says an insider.
Officer Drake Madison said the situation was a “domestic incident” and no one committed a crime, so police did not file any charges.
Spelling and McDermott have been dealing with personal trials and money trouble for years, including a cheating and sex addiction scandal that ended with McDermott going to rehab back in 2014.
But, the couple ended up saving their marriage following his infidelity, and last year they welcomed their fifth child, Beau. Spelling and McDermott are also the parents of Liam, 10, Stella, 9, Hattie, 6, and Finn, 5.

Just before Spelling gave birth to Beau, she said that her decade-long marriage was in a good place. After McDermott cheated, she said everything crashed and they had to start over and rebuild. But, she says she wouldn’t change anything because the cheating caused them to open lines of communication and to start talking. And, if that wouldn’t have happened, they may not be together now.
The couple went through intense therapy and personal healing, and Spelling says that they made a conscious decision to tough it out and work through it because they love each other.
But, an insider says the couple has been fighting recently because of money problems and the family is in deep debt. The source went on to reveal that Tori Spelling is demanding that Dean McDermott get a job because she is tired of his slothfulness and enough is enough.
