The "90210" actress failed to appear for a court hearing in California on the 29th March, and as a result, a warrant was issued for her arrest. Tori and her husband, Dean have been involved in a lawsuit against City National Bank for years. The Bank sued the star couple for defaulting on a loan of $400,000.

In May 2017, the court ruled on a default judgment after Spelling and her husband missed the deadline to respond to the bank's allegations in court. As of March 28, Spelling owes more than $260,000 as part of the judgment, including interest accrued after the ruling.

The lawsuit hasn't stopped Tori from going about her business as she was actually in Tel Aviv, Israel shooting a commercial on the day she was to be in court. She posted pictures on social media telling her fans all about it.

One of the pictures was captioned: "Best Friends in life and business... So excited to be in Israel filming an amazing commercial for @castrofashion_kids with my bestie @jenniegarth."

Yeah, she's with her best friend, Jennie Garth and the commercial is for a children's clothing line. 

It's unclear why Tori Spelling has financial issues, but the star was also sued in the past by American express for some unpaid credit card debt; she was eventually ordered by a court to pay $88,000 to the company.
