CANDY Spelling has never approved of daughter Tori's husband Dean McDermott, it's been claimed.
Amid rumors that Tori and Dean are on the brink of divorce, a source has revealed that Candy may "step up to support" Tori when Dean is out of the picture.
Tori, 48, and mom Candy, 76, have had a strained relationship over the years, and it seems her marriage to the Canadian actor has "compounded things."
A source told UsWeekly: "Dean doesn’t get along with Candy and she’s never really approved of him."
They added: "When Dean is out of picture, Tori thinks Candy will step up with financial support.”
Tori and Candy had been estranged for years following the death of Tori’s film and TV producer father Aaron in 2006.
Tori and her brother Randy only received $800,000 as part of their inheritance.
Candy, who has a net work of around $600 million, said the decision to give Tori such a small inheritance was because she had a spending problem.
“[Tori] would close a store and drop $50,000 to $60,000. She just went crazy."
Tori’s money problems have been well publicized over the years.
In 2016 the Beverly Hills, 90210 star was sued by American Express for an unpaid $87,594.55 bill.
Candy spoke out at the time to say: “"I've been paying all her bills now, except I'm not paying extras like that. I'm not paying any back payments—just for the house, and the kids' schools, and their food."
In June Tori was ordered to pay Cavalry SPV I, a debt-buying company on behalf of Citibank, $5,054.32 for an unpaid credit card bill in September 2018.
In another lawsuit, City National Bank sued Tori and Dean, who share six children together, for failing to pay back a $400,000 loan.
They were ordered to pay a judgment of $202,066 in May 2017.
The bank later claimed they never paid and a bench warrant was issued after she failed to appear in court.
The warrant was dissolved in April 2019 and the case remains ongoing.
But despite their financial troubles, The Sun reported the couple bought a $3.7 million mansion featuring a sauna, waterfall and more luxurious amenities in April 2020.
In 2014 Candy denied Dean’s claims that she hasn’t been helping the family financially over the years.
Her rep told Access Hollywood at the time: “Candy has provided financial help in the past and has offered repeatedly to pay for the children’s private schooling and Tori has never told her where to send the money.
“Candy reaches out often to see them and unfortunately Tori and Dean are not often responsive.”
Tori and Dean – who married in 2006 -share kids Liam, 14, Stella, 13, Hattie, 10, and Finn, nine, and Beau, four.
In 2019 the actress revealed their her relationship with Candy is now “really good.”
BRINK OF DIVORCE
Tori, and husband Dean, 54 have reportedly been inching closer to separation for weeks now.
Last month Tori was spotted coming out of a meeting with her lawyer having a heated conversation on her phone.
In her hand was a notepad with some notes on "custody", “support” and “assets."
Close-up shots of the actress’ notepad revealed what seemed to be her "to-do" list and schedule: “Pig pen – get quote,” “AAA Jump Start Van” and most tellng,“3pm Lawyer – assets – support – custody.”
The Beverly Hills, 90210 star has also been spending more time with her kids without Dean.
Recently, a source told Us Weekly that there have been further tension and threats made between Tori and Dean, which might possibly be the reason why the two have yet to officially split.
The insider claimed that the Scary Movie 2 star “wants a divorce, but she feels trapped right now.”
The source added that Dean recently “went missing” for a few days after he got into an argument with his wife.
This led to the two having an even bigger “fight” upon his return.
The couple has started arguing about a divorce, according to the outlet.
Dean allegedly threatened to sue Tori, who has reportedly been open up about her many money troubles with child support and alimony.
Though her husband has signed a prenup, the insider claimed Tori “went ballistic” when she learned Dean could still sue for her money and got “pissed” at her attorneys.
The TV star has reportedly only stayed in the marriage "for the kids," despite being "miserable."
