Why Do Fans Think Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott Split?
The Beverly Hills, 90210 actress sparked rumors of marital woes after she was spotted without her wedding ring during an outing with her children in March 2021.
Three months later, during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “Jeff Lewis Live,” she opened up about sleeping in a separate bed from her husband of 16 years.
“You know what? Right now, my kids and dogs sleep in my bed,” she explained when asked how her marriage was going. “Since he left [to film Chopped Canada] – he was gone for six months – filming in another country, they all stayed with me.”
In addition to the separate beds, Dean was noticeably missing from the family’s holiday card that year, though Tori claims he “was filming.”
The True Tori alum shared a photo of herself with her five children and their “farm” to Instagram in November 2021, leaving fans to wonder about her husband’s whereabouts.
“Dean must be ‘working’ out of town and couldn’t get home in time for the annual Christmas picture,” one fan remarked in the comments. “Fact: Dean McDermott was filming his new feature film in Canada,” Tori confirmed.
Are Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott Still Together?
Despite their relationship struggles, Dean shared a touching tribute to his wife for International Women’s Day in March 2022.
“Happy International Women’s Day to these incredibly smart, creative, strong, fierce and funny women,” he wrote alongside photos of his wife and daughters Stella and Hattie. “I’m so blessed to have you in my life. I love you So Much!!”
In addition to his loving post, Dean’s Instagram bio shows his affection for his wife as it reads, “Married to the love of my life Tori Spelling.”
Dean appeared to shut down split rumors once again when he flirted with Tori in a clip for her new show, @Home With Tori. In the teaser shared by Us Weekly on July 21, their entire family enjoyed a backyard screening of Tori’s film acting debut, Troop Beverly Hills. “Wait! Do you see me, you guys? That’s me!” she excitedly asked her family. Dean then lovingly replied, “You’re so cute, babe.”
