Tori Spelling, 39, of Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood has been in the celebrity spotlight all of her life so she’s used to rumors and lies being spread about her and typically doesn’t even dignify them with a response. But earlier this week, she felt the need to speak out, not as a celebrity, but as a mom, when a vicious divorce rumor upset her 5-year-old son, Liam. Keep reading for more details.
According to People, the incident happened when she and her children were in the checkout line at the grocery store. While they were waiting to pay for their items, 5-year-old Liam saw the cover of a tabloid that said Tori and husband, Dean McDermott were getting a divorce.
Imagine the horror he must have felt. As a young and impressionable child, Liam’s first response was to believe what he read on the cover of the tabloid. And it took a lot of convincing on Tori’s part to make things okay with him. Once they got in the car to go home, Liam “was anxiously biting his lower lip and his big blue eyes were filled with tears. My heart sank,” Tori wrote in an open letter on Thursday, “I’ve always had shots taken at me, but my children are another story…keep them out of it!”
All the way home she reassured Liam that things were fine between mommy and daddy telling him they were very happy and in love, and that they were not getting a divorce.
Tori said Dean is a great husband and the best father to their four children, Liam, 5, Stella, 4, Hattie, 16-months, and Finn, 7-months. “I’m so blessed to have him as my partner in life and love,” she said.
