Tori Spelling is being sued by American Express after allegedly failing to pay off an outstanding balance of nearly $38,000, according to legal documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight.
The papers note that the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, 42, hasn’t made a single payment since June 26, 2015, and according to TMZ, an attempted payment of $1,070 bounced.
“No part of said sum has been paid, although demand for payment has been made,” the documents say, according to ET.
On Wednesday, Spelling’s mother, Candy, told TMZ that her daughter’s money troubles are likely rooted in “extravagance, I guess.”
“I’ve been helping her out, I’ve been paying all her bills now, except I’m not paying extras like that,” she said in a video clip. “I’m not paying any back payments — just for the house, and the kids’ schools and their food.”
Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott, have gone public about their monetary troubles before. In a 2014 episode of their reality show, True Tori, the pair break down over how they’d keep their family afloat.
“I’m overwhelmed with life,” Spelling told McDermott at the time. “I just feel so responsible for so many people, and I can’t do it — the responsibilities of having to take care of so many people financially.… My dad wouldn’t have wanted this.”
Spelling’s father, the late TV producer Aaron, made a fortune during his lifetime with popular series like Beverly Hills, 90210, 7th Heaven and Dynasty.
