Celebrity Docket – Spelling’s Opulent Lifestyle Leads to Tax Liens

tori-spellingActress Tori Spelling and her actor husband Dean McDermott are   living large, but they are struggling financially.

The couple owes the State of California almost $300,000 in back taxes and were recently hit with a Federal Tax Lien for over $700,000. Both bills were for unpaid taxes in 2014.

To add to their troubles, Tori is also being sued by American Express, for a delinquent bill of almost $38,000.

Daughter of the famous film and television producer Aaron Spelling, Tori grew up with lots of money.

In her 2013 book “Spelling It Like It Is,” Tori wrote “It’s not my fault that I’m an uptown girl stuck in a midtown life. I was raised in opulence. My standards are ridiculously high. We can’t afford that lifestyle, but when you grow up with a silver spoon it’s hard to go plastic.”

When her father died in 2006, he left Tori a paltry $800,000 compared to Candy has been helping the couple make ends meet, but has little sympathy for their situation. “I’ve been helping out and I’m paying all her bills now,” she said. “I’m not paying extras like that, I’m not paying any back payments…just for the house and the kid’s school and the food. That’s all.”
