Tori Spelling appeared to confirm that she has split from husband Dean McDermott while shopping at Target in LA this week.
The 50-year-old actress looked downcast as she emerged from her marital strife, and in a video for DailyMail.com, the star responded to a question about her husband by saying: ‘I’ve always seen the best of myself.’
This comes after she was seen playing the role of a single mother in recent weeks in the wake of her marriage ending.
The star also defended her decision to stay in a $100-a-night motel with her children amid a mold infestation, saying: ‘Are you a parent? You know you’ll do whatever you can for your kids, right?’
This comes after she touched on her mood these days on social media.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 vet noted that she is experiencing ‘dark times’ but finds hope when spending time with her children.
The comment was made on her Insta Stories on Monday evening as she shared several pictures of her kids. She has five children with McDermott – Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10 and Beau, six.
ABOVE: Tori Spelling appeared to confirm she had split from husband Dean McDermott while shopping at Target in LA this week.
Acting solo? This comes after she was seen playing the role of a single mother in recent weeks in the wake of her marriage ending. Met Dean in 2019
It comes after the blonde pinup announced she was divorcing Dean but then quickly deleted the post.
The In Love star has also moved into a Los Angeles motel in a move that appears to reinforce that she has left her husband, although sources insist it’s only because there’s a mold problem in her home.
Either way, the star is clearly in agony over her love life.
He also shared a lot of pictures on his Insta stories.
Tori showed followers what made her happy and the list was long.
First she shared pictures of her kids, then foods like chips — specifically Tangy Ketchup Doritos — plus her dog and AA the squirrel. And there was a photo of her mother’s Candy Spelling with her brother Randy Spelling as well as her pal Josh Flagg.
There was no picture of Dean.
Meanwhile, Spelling’s decision to move into a $100-a-night motel with her five children is said to have nothing to do with her rumored split from McDermott.
The spat: The star also defended her decision to stay in a $100-a-night motel with her children amid a mold infestation, saying: ‘Are you a parent? You know you’ll do whatever you can for your kids, right?’
She was photographed leaving a residence in the Los Angeles area on July 8 following claims that she had broken up with him.
But a source told Us Weekly that the actress had booked the room at the humble establishment due to ongoing mold issues in their matrimonial home.
The insider said: ‘Tori and Dean are doing really well and his hotel stay with their kids has nothing to do with the split.
‘They decided to stay because of an ongoing mold problem in their home. Tori is taking this matter very seriously and is not going to subject herself or her children to it.’

Tangy is good: He also mentions that he likes tangy ketchup Doritos. There was no picture of Dean
Page Six reports that Tori ‘looked distraught’ as she left the motel with her kids.
Earlier this year he was forced to evacuate his family from a rental home after discovering an ‘extreme’ mold infestation that left them with serious health problems.
Tori said in May that the poisonous fungus had been ‘slowly killing’ her family for three years as she asked her fans to recommend a lawyer.
The actress grew up living in a $165 million mansion owned by her late TV producer father, Aaron Spelling, who died in 2006 at age 83 of complications from a stroke.
Kids: The comment was made on her Insta Stories on Monday evening as she shared several pictures of her kids. She has five children with McDermott – Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10 and Beau, six. Also seen here is Dean’s son from a previous marriage
After receiving only $800,000 of Aaron’s $500 million fortune, he had a bitter falling out with his family.
She suffered another blow in June when Dean posted, then deleted, a statement that they had separated after 17 years of marriage.
She said online: ‘It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways and start a new journey of our own.’
The actor, who has son Jack, 24, with his first wife Mary Jo Eustace, 61, added, ‘We will continue to work together as loving parents and guides and love for our children during this difficult time.’
Dean was then seen moving his things into storage, while Tori was photographed wearing a ‘Boys Lie’ t-shirt.
The pair have been dogged by split rumors for years and were both seen without their wedding rings throughout 2021 – the same year Tori admitted they were sleeping in separate rooms.
Tori’s mother Candy, 77, insisted she would ‘definitely’ support her daughter financially amid her marriage troubles.
He told TMZ last week: ‘I love my daughter, and I support her in whatever she does. I support my daughter.’
