Rumors about Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott getting divorced have been circulating since … well, about the time that the troubled couple got married.

But this time around, it seems Dean has actually taken steps toward bringing an end to what might be Hollywood’s most dysfunctional marriage.

According to Radar Online, McDermott has moved out on Spelling and is expected to file for divorce in the near future.

Sources tell the site that Dean moved out after spending the Fourth of July holiday with Tori and their five children.

He reportedly has not been back to the house since.

"Tori’s behavior has sent him to a breaking point,” says one insider.

That behavior includes a number of emotional breakdowns, the worst of which prompted Dean to call the cops on Tori for behaving erratically.

After those episodes, Spelling and McDermott assured fans that they’re still married, but they’ve been quiet in the weeks since.

Tori’s recent mental health issues may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back, but they certainly weren’t the first sign of trouble for her and Dean.

For years, fans have been expecting a divorce announcement, as the couple continues to make headlines with their marital issues.

The trouble seems to have started when Dean was caught cheating on Tori with mistress Emily Goodhand.

To say the years that followed weren’t always kind to the McDermott clan would be a massive understatement.

Tori and Dean went broke, drove up seven-figure debts to their creditors, and were forced to downsize to a much smaller home in not-so-posh Encino.

Their financial stresses show no signs of letting up, and just last year, Dean was almost imprisoned for failure to pay child support to his first wife.

Needless to say, it’s not hard to see how all of this might have put a considerable strain on Tori and Dean’s marriage.

Reports the couple is on the brink of calling it quits date back to early 2018, when sources say they began living separate lives.

“Tori and Dean have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for the past six weeks,” a family insider told Radar back in April.

“Things have been very bad at home between them.”

Spelling and McDermott have been quiet on the matter thus far, but if we know them, they’re feverishly pitching a reality show about their crumbling marriage at this very moment.
