Tori Spelling recently shared on Instagram her 2021 family Christmas card and fans noticed that her husband, Dean McDermott, was missing in the photo.
According to the Beverly Hills 90210 alum, the actor was filming in Canada when the photo was taken. However, her explanation didn’t stop the breakup rumors that have been swirling around instead, another post showing her personalized stockings with those of her five children fuelled them all the more.
Meanwhile, a source close to the actress told E! News, “The marriage is over and has been for a very long time now. Tori has met with her lawyers and is planning to file very soon. She’s trying to work it all out and make sure she is financially OK first.”
The source continued, “It’s for the best and has been a long time coming. They have been trying to work it out for years for the sake of the kids but they truly do not get along. They have been sleeping in different rooms for months and haven’t considered themselves to be ‘married’ for a while now. Tori’s ready for a fresh new start but is trying to be strategic about it.”
This isn’t the first time the couple experienced a bump in their marriage. Dean was involved in a cheating scandal in 2013 that almost ruined their marriage. It resulted to his seeking treatment for sex addiction.
Meanwhile, breakup rumors surfaced when the 58-year-old actress was photographed in March with her kids at a farm without her wedding ring on. Dean told Feminine Warrior podcast in September that Tori took it off “because she washed her hands and forgot to put it back on.”
Tori also shared during an interview on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live in June about their sleping arrangements. She said, “Right now, my kids and dogs sleep in my bed” while her Dean was “in a room”. She explained that their bedroom situation changed saying, “Since he left—this is not good you guys—but since he left, he was gone for six months filming in another country.”
Moreover, he’s been absent in Tori’s Instagram, specifically in her grid photos since she paid a tribute for him on Father’s Day in 2020.
As for the actor, his last shared photo of his wife on Instagram was August last year.
It was also reported earlier that Camilo Cabello and Shawn Mendes split after two years of dating.
