As previously reported, the police have been called on Tori Spelling on two separate occasions over the last two weeks.
But while the actress is very possibly dealing with some kind of mental breakdown, a new report suggests that she and husband Dean McDermott may want to place a phone call to someone else...
... a bankruptcy attorney.
If that have any interest on actually going their separate ways, that is.
The latest controversy surrounding these parents of five got underway on March 1 after authorities were called to Spelling and McDermott's home in response to claims of a domestic disturbance.
When they arrived on the scene, they found the actress behaving in erratic fashion, according to various outlets.
Spelling was then taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Fast forward six days and McDermott calling the police to their home again because he was concerned about Spelling leaving their home with at least one of their children.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed this second call, but said in a statement that it was much ado over nothing on McDermott's part.
“Deputies located her in Thousand Oaks, spoke to her for a few minutes and determined she was fine," the office shortly after this story went viral, adding:
"That was that. She was fine and no further action was taken.”
Perhaps Spelling was A-OK at this time, but it's evident that she and McDermott are having some major issues once again.
"They argue several times a week," a source tells In Touch Weekly, explaining in a bit more detail:
"Their fights can be heard throughout the whole neighborhood. Tori's yelling and hysterical crying are unmistakable."
The stars have been through A LOT over the years.
Most notably, McDermott have confessed to cheating on his wife, while money issues have plagued Tori and Dean nearly since the day they exchanged vows.
Heck, McDermott was almost jailed for failure to pay child support last year
Why don't the two just go their separate ways?
For this exact reason, Life & Style writes.
The tabloid quotes a family friend who thinks Tori and Dean are "too broke to divorce," citing expenses involved in such a process such as payment to lawyers and other tasks.
It's a rather terrible sign for a couple when they are forced to be together because they literally can't afford any other option. But here we are.
"She loves him and has always tried to keep the relationship together, but she’s at the end of her rope," the source tells Life & Style.
He or she goes on to say the following:
"[They] are at each other’s throats over so many issues - everything from their dire financial situation to neither of them having a steady job to not being able to adequately support their five children."
Very reasonable concerns, that's for certain.
Spelling and McDermott are parents to a 10-year-old son named Liam, a nine-year-old daughter named Stella, a six-year-old daughter named Hattie, a five-year-old son named Finn and a one-year-old son named Beau.
That's a lot for any couple to handle, let alone a couple that rarely gets along well for any extended period of time.
For the sake of all these kids, let's hope Tori and Dean work things out.
