Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott Reportedly Split After 17 Years of Marriage
After 17 years of marriage, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are allegedly divorcing. According to People, McDermott shared the news on Saturday morning in an Instagram post that has since been removed.
“It’s with great sadness and a very very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways, and start a new journey of our own,” he captioned his post, which featured a photo of him and Spelling together, as reported by the publication.
McDermott continued, “We will continue to work together as loving parents and guide and love our children through this difficult time. We ask that you all respect our privacy as we take this time to surround our family with love and work our way through this. Thank you all for your support and kindness.”
Spelling has not commented on McDermott’s separation announcement. Around the time the “Open Range” actor made his post, Spelling shared a post on her Instagram celebrating the couple’s daughter, Stella, turning 15.
She shared a family photo — which included McDermott — alongside the caption, “Back to my zip code… @beverlyhilton hotel has been such a huge part of my life. Went there with my family growing up and now I’m lucky enough to be able to take my own family.
#beverlyhitonhotel gave us the most wonderful experience for @stella_mcdermott08 15th birthday. Penthouse suite, cabanas, cakes, the works. Tbh it was hard to leave. Family time is the best time and @beverlyhilton you continue to always make us feel like true family. We love you! xoxo #90210.”
After 17 years of marriage (and 18 years overall together) and five children, the couple reportedly separated. They also share Liam Aaron, Finn Davey, Beau Dean, Hattie Margaret, and Stella. Additionally, McDermott and his ex-girlfriend Mary Jo Eustace have a kid together named Jack.
