Tori Spelling reportedly ordered to pay credit card company almost $90,000
Actress Tori Spelling has been ordered to pay American Express over $88,000 realized through credit card spending.
The "Beverly Hills 90210" alum was charged earlier this month. According to the documents obtained by US Weekly, the exact figure is $88,246.55.
Spelling, 45, acquired the debt over a number of months. American Express filed the writ of execution to retrieve their funds, but it wasn't the first time they've had to sue Spelling.
In January 2016, the company again sued Spelling for owed credit card debt. In October of the same year, AmEx also sued Spelling for $87,594.55 in credit card bills.
Spelling's husband of 13 years, Dean McDermott, is also in the mix of the actress' financial woes. Two years ago, City National Bank sued the pair for almost $200,000 when they didn't repay a bank loan.
Spelling gave an explanation for her financial struggles in her 2013 memoir, "Spelling It Like It Is."
“It’s no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes.”
“Even when my tastes aren’t fancy, they’re still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way.”
Spelling and her husband share five children together: Liam 11, Stella, 10, Hattie, seven, Finn, six, and Beau, a year and 10 months.
Earlier this month, the entire family faced harsh criticism when Spelling shared a picture of all of them on her Instagram account.
Commenters made disparaging remarks about the kids' weight and clothing choices. Often, their messages were quite blunt.
McDermott's patience soon ran out and he took to Instagram to voice how appalled he was.
“I am absolutely horrified and disgusted by the comments being left about my children. Body shaming and bullying my children??!! What is wrong with you people??!!”
We hope the family is able to continue fending off such inappropriate remarks and can pull themselves out of their current financial hole.
