Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott served for failing to pay back $200k loan

We’ve heard for years that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are deep in debt to fund their ridiculous lifestyle. Their bank accounts were seized by the federal government in 2017 for nonpayment of 707k in taxes. They also owe 259k to the State of California for taxes, over 88k to Amex and over $220k to City National Bank, which they were ordered to pay last summer in a default judgment after they didn’t show up to court. In the interim Tori has gone on at least two vacations to Europe, she’s thrown lavish parties for her children’s birthdays and she’s stayed in luxury hotels. We know all this because she puts it on Instagram. Plus Dean owes over 100k in back child support to his ex.

Well Tori and Dean were just served notice for $220k they owe to City National Bank for not paying over half of a $400k loan. They were ordered to appear in court to determine if they can pay it back.

According to legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, the couple were served earlier this month in regard to their case against City National Bank. The company wants to examine the pair’s finances after they allegedly declined to pay back more than $205,000 in debt.

The papers ordered Spelling, 45, and McDermott, 52, to report to court for the examination so that the bank can decide how to get the money. If the pair do not attend their hearing, they could be arrested for being in contempt of court.

City National Bank filed the lawsuit in December 2016 after the True Tori alums allegedly failed to repay their $400,000 bank loan. McDermott and Spelling received a default judgment that stated they had to hand over $219,796.66 in the case.

Fox announced on Wednesday that Spelling, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris are set to star in a six-episode 90210 “event series,” which will air this summer. The six original cast members “will play heightened versions of themselves,” thus shooting down the concept of a revival.

As I always ask, how do people get that much in debt? Also why haven’t Tori and Dean declared bankruptcy or paid back their creditors? She has over a million followers on Instagram and she must be making money from all those sponcons she does. Plus she was on The Masked Singer and there’s the 90210 reunion series coming this summer. She makes so much money but it’s never enough for her or Dean. They’re grifters.

Oh and 90210 is coming back this summer with most of the original cast as US mentioned. Shannen Doherty can’t be bothered. Do you think it’s going to get decent ratings?

    People out here really working two jobs and skipping meals to get by in America, and these two jackasses are being given six digit credit lines. Unbelievable.

  2. Esmom says:

    As someone who enjoyed 90210 and Melrose Place back in the day, my guess is it’s going to tank. I know IDGAF about it.

    As for Tori and Dean, I cannot imagine living like that. Have some dignity, ffs.

  3. LivePlantsCleanAir says:

    I recently re-watched some ‘Due South’ episodes. Probably one of Dean McD’s first roles; he was very funny, and quite handsome then. We all age differently, of course; in my opinion, he has not aged well. Debauchery is not kind……

    • Mel M says:

      My gosh he looks terrible. I’ve never seen him look handsome though so it must’ve been a LONG LONG time ago, blech.

    • hezzer19 says:

      He was pretty funny if memory serves but I’m not sure I even noticed how he looked.

      But let’s be honest, compared to Paul Gross (and Diefenbaker) nobody is going to look good.

      *pulls Due South DVDs off the shelf*

      I know what I’m doing for the rest of the week.

  4. Lucky Charm says:

    Isn’t Shannen recovering from cancer? Maybe that’s why she’s not interested in doing this. Although I’m not interested in watching it either.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      She has been in remission for nearly two years now. No I’m guessing that she knows this is a train wreck and wants no part of it. Luke Perry isn’t coming back for it either. And I don’t blame either of them.

  5. deezee says:

    I can see the numbers being respectable for the first episode (curiousity and all) but after that, I think the ratings will go down.

    Is anyone (besides her) really asking for this?

  6. Valiantly Varnished says:

    You know, when Aaron Spelling died and Candy Spelling cut Tori off I thought she she as being cruel and selfish. And now time has shown EXACTLY why she cut her off. I get it completely. Tori is entitled and irresponsible. And so is her husband. She found her perfect match and I think it’s hilarious how obviously miserable Dean is but he’s trapped in a hell of his own making.

    • Christin says:

      Though her parents lived a completely OTT lifestyle, I don’t recall hearing that they failed to pay their bills. Their son supposedly lives within his means, yet their daughter seems to be unwilling to do that.

      How many breaks can one receive when dealing with back taxes and unpaid debts? There have been celebrities who had their possessions seized and auctioned off to pay back taxes.

  7. Ali says:

    I’ve always wondered who Candy will leave her money too when she passes away. I know Tori has a brother but wouldn’t it be something if she gives her money to charity!??

  8. elimaeby says:

    I will never understand how she left her first husband for Dean. He is so scuzzy and vile looking all the time. Ugh. No, thanks.

    • VeryVeryTerryJerry says:

      The personality, too, as in none. Plus the cheating dog part, plus the spineless part. He’s repulsive.

  9. Ann says:

    I’ll be watching the 90210 reboot because Jason Priestley will be coming back and I LOVE Brandon Walsh! He’s my super sanctimonious liberal SJW dream boat! I just hope they don’t try to get him with Kelly. Brandon was too good for Kelly! I’ve got my fingers crossed for the return of Brando’s one true love Emily Valentine.

  10. ariel says:

    But its not really a 90210 show is it? They are playing “heightened” versions of themselves.
    So more like So NoTorious?
    I don’t get it.
    And yeah, her whole- my daddy raised me to be rich, and I don’t think I should have to learn to be not rich/responsible- thing is gross.
    I hope when Candy dies, she doesn’t leave her any money.

  11. pollyv says:

    I don’t know how they sleep at night. If I had their financial problems I would be in a constant state of anxiety, unable to answer the phone or go out in public.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Seriously, I currently have about $5K in credit card debt from college, and I’m deadset about making sure it’s paid off before the APR kicks in. It’s not like high level anxiety that haunts me day and night, but it’s certainly at the forefront of my mind when I pay my bills.

    • Christin says:

      Unfortunately, I know a couple like this. Living beyond their means and always expecting someone to help bail them out.

      They are in their 50s (after a bankruptcy) and still allow their elderly parents to pay for vehicles and vacations. They are just shameless about finances, and will take (and ask) for a dollar versus living on a reasonable budget.

  12. KBeth says:

    The apparent lack of shame is astonishing.

  13. Nancypants says:

    I’ve never seen an episode of 90210.
    I saw ads for it but I won’t be watching the do-over either.

    You know, I did watch several episodes of that Tori and Dean “reality” show they did when she was p.g. with the first kid and at first I thought, “I think he really loves her and they are happy together.”
    Now, I realize they are both crazy and he thought he was going to get Spelling money and she kept spitting out sad children to keep Candy and Dean.

    At least she takes jobs here and there. I don’t know what he does and how is he not in jail for non-payment of child support?
    His ex even gave him chances to catch up.
    I don’t know how you get in that much debt but maybe it’s similar to big lottery winners who end up broke and homeless within a year or so.

    She grew up super rich and has never adjusted to living within her means but she seems to have some income. I don’t get it.

    The other day, some posters said Candy should just BUY them a house rather than all this rent stuff but I really think they would be in foreclosure from borrowing against it within months and the bank would just seize the house.

    Like Grandma would have said, “Those two are dumber than a bowl of mice.”

    • Veronica S. says:

      The only way I could see it work if she bought the house but kept the title and property in her name. That would bar them from being able to borrow against it, but it would also allow her an embarrassing amount of control over their lives.

      Dean is a joke of a human being. His ex-wife ultimately made out with the better deal in the end.

    • Allie says:

      @NancyPants: Candy did buy them a house once, or she loaned them the money for it. They never paid her back and they turned around and sold the house at a loss 6 months later.

  14. Librakitty says:

    TMZ just reported that Luke Perry suffered a stroke recently 🙁

  15. Lindy says:

    We are scraping and saving and skipping extras and travel to see our family so we can afford a house here in Austin this year (before Apple builds a second campus near our neighborhood and we’re priced out forever). Yet they just don’t feel like paying back half their 400k loan? I just…. god, they are so completely disgusting.

  16. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    She must pay thousands a month for those huge storage units she has. If I were her mom I’d stop helping her until she got rid of a few of them.

    • Allie says:

      According to the reality show she did a few years ago, she spends $6,000 a month on the storage units. Although, a few years have passed so she probably has even more storage units now.

  17. Sandy Eggo says:

    WTF does “heightened versions of themselves” mean? Actually I don’t care because I was never into the original show anyway. I just like to read these Tori/Dean debt stories because their continuing grift is astounding.

  18. noway says:

    I just don’t get it. Sure they are bad, but why are the banks and whatever lending them money? I’m in a bit of debt now through some health issues, and I have a plan which should get me out of it relatively soon, but I was finding it hard to get a good refinance, and I haven’t missed a payment on anything in decades. It’s just the rolling interest getting me. Yet these people who everyone on here can tell are probably not going to pay you back can get that many loans. Talk about risk? Wow!!!!

    • holly hobby says:

      Those are old loans. I doubt they can get one now. They should just file for bankruptcy and we’d know how their finances play out in a 341 trustee meeting.

  19. lucy2 says:

    It always amazes me how people with so much money can get so deep in debt. She’s had a lot of income in the past if their taxes are that high, and her mother pays their housing and school costs for the kids. WHAT do they spend it on??? Why can’t they get their act together?

    • paddingtonjr says:

      This is what I don’t understand as well: they both have had acting jobs and reality shows; Tori’s written books. Aren’t they at least getting residuals from some of their jobs? BH 90210 ran for a long time and I think is still in syndication. Candy pays for the kids (at least rent and school-related expenses). How are they in six-figure debt and having bank accounts garnished? Is it just Tori’s hoarding/storage unit habit?

  20. MariaS says:

    They owe $1,274,000?! She’s 45 and has been working since she was a kid. Her father left her 1 million. Between residuals, reality shows, books, sponsored posts, etc, how is she broke? My god, Charlie Shanian must be so relieved that she left him for Dean. She’s entitled and irresponsible and thrives on drama and chaos.
