Actress Tori Spelling, known for her role in “90210,” has decided to end her marriage to actor-producer Dean McDermott.

Fox News Digital confirmed the news on Friday. Spelling filed for divorce, stating irreconcilable differences as the reason. They officially separated on June 17, 2023.

In the divorce documents, Spelling is asking for spousal support but won’t provide it to McDermott. She’s also seeking full physical custody of their five minor children while suggesting joint legal custody.

Spelling mentioned that she’s open to McDermott having visitation rights. In Spelling’s divorce filing, there’s no mention of a prenuptial agreement, but it states that the extent of their assets and property will be determined during the case. Representatives for Spelling and McDermott haven’t responded to requests for comment.

Their marital issues have been public. Last June, McDermott announced their split on Instagram, but the post was deleted. They married in 2006 and have five kids: Liam, Finn, Beau, Stella, and Hattie. Spelling hasn’t commented on the separation.

Their relationship began scandalously. They met in 2005 while both were married to other people. Spelling admitted to an affair with McDermott, which led to divorce from their spouses. They got engaged in December 2005 and married in May 2006.

In 2013, Spelling denied divorce rumors, but McDermott was accused of cheating, which he later admitted. They aired their struggles on the reality series “True Tori.” In 2016, McDermott proposed again, but financial issues arose, including unpaid bills and tax troubles.

In March 2018, police responded to a domestic disturbance call at their home. They faced more tax liens in 2018 and 2020. Since their separation, McDermott has been seen with a new girlfriend, while Spelling was photographed with an advertising executive in November.
