Dean McDermott Seeks Spousal Support from Tori Spelling

The Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott divorce saga continues as the couple battles it out in family court over spousal support and custody of their five children. Tori filed for divorce in March, nine months after their separation, blindsiding Dean who had expressed his own desire to file first.

In response to Tori’s divorce petition, Dean is seeking spousal support and joint custody of their children, whom he had not seen for several months in 2023. Tori had requested sole physical custody in her initial filing but expressed openness to joint legal custody and visitation rights for Dean.

One of the major points of contention between the former couple is the date of separation. Tori listed it as June 17, 2023, while Dean claims it was July 7, 2023, despite his social media announcement on June 17 of their split. This discrepancy adds another layer of complexity to their divorce proceedings.

With no prenuptial agreement in place, the division of property and assets will also be a matter for the court to decide. Despite Dean’s admitted substance abuse issues and past behavior towards his family, his work on Chopped Canada likely contributed to their income, making the financial aspects of the divorce more complicated.

As the legal battle between Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott unfolds, it remains to be seen how the court will rule on spousal support, custody, and division of assets in this high-profile celebrity divorce. Stay tuned for updates as the story continues to develop.
