It’s been a rough week for troubled actress and heiress Tori Spelling.
It all started when Spelling suffered a breakdown at her home in Encino over the weekend.
At first, it was reported that Spelling was hospitalized in connection with the breakdown, but now, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
While police were called to the scene and neighbors reported that "several units" arrived at the home Spelling shares with husband Dean McDermott, it now appears that she’s remained at home in the days since the incident.
There’s been a good deal of speculation about the cause of Spelling’s breakdown, but thus far, the mother of five has remained tight-lipped on the matter.
But it seems hasn’t been quite as concerned with Tori’s privacy.
Several insiders have spoken to media outlets, and accounts concur that Tori was driven to the point of mental collapse primarily by stress related to her dire financial situation and her crumbling marriage.
“Tori and Dean have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for the past six weeks,” a family insider claimed.
“Things have been very bad at home between them.”
It seems Dean’s desire to put some distance between himself and Tori is so profound that he’s willing to forego the luxury of a bed:
“Tori has been sleeping in the master bedroom, while Dean sleeps on the floor in one of their son’s rooms," says the insider.
"He just doesn’t even want to be near Tori!”
To hear the source tell it, the main issue driving the couple apart is money.
The couple’s worsening financial situation has been well-documented over the course of the past year.
Spelling has been sued by creditors, and McDermott’s unpaid child support to the mother of his first son nearly landed the actor behind bars.
Or perhaps we should say "former actor."
Yes, it seems Dean’s recent lack of work is one of the main reasons the couple is so destitute.
In fact, Tori believes the blame for her current woes rests primarily with Dean.
"Tori has had enough of Dean’s moaning about not being a working actor,” says the source.
“Yes, Dean is involved in taking care of their kids, but he needs to step up and be the provider.”
Hm … so now that’s two wives in a row who believe Dean is a deadbeat.
At a certain point, you sort of stop wondering if he’s beeing demonized unfairly.
