Tori Spelling Being Sued by American Express for Unpaid Bill of $38K

Tori Spelling may have grown up as a rich little girl but it seems she is far from that now. Spelling has always been open about her financial struggles, even admitting that when her father Aaron Spelling died, she was left with barely nothing from his billion dollar television empire. In fact she has alway stated that she had to make her own money and work for what she has.

Now according to E News, the  42-year-old actress has an outstanding balance of $37,981.97 on her American Express card, and is being sued by the credit card company for payment. According to the papers, Tori hasn’t made a payment since June 26, 2015.

No part of said sum has been paid, although demand for payment has been made,” the documents read about Tori’s credit card balance.

Tori’s mother, 70-year-old Candy Spelling, claimed she’s already been paying her daughter’s bills.

“I’ve been helping her out, I’ve been paying all her bills now, except I’m not paying extras like that,” Candy said in response to Tori’s lawsuit news. “I’m not paying any back payments — just for the house, and the kids’ schools, and their food.”

When asked why her daughter has allegedly missed payments, she replied, “I don’t know. Extravagance, I guess.”

It may sound harsh but even Tori agrees that her spending habits are what have gotten her into trouble in the past. She shared this little insight in her 2013 memoirs Spelling It Like It Is.

“It’s no mystery why I have money problems,” she wrote. “I grew up rich beyond anyone’s dreams. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes … And then there’s my little shopping problem … I can’t afford to live like this anymore. Our circumstances have changed. They say admitting the problem is the first step.”
