Tori Spelling Writes Open Letter To Tabloid Amid Divorce Rumors
In a furious open letter published on her website Thursday, Spelling shot down Star’s cover story, citing her six-year-old son as the reason for speaking out.
“My son Liam is turning 6 in a couple weeks,” Spelling, age, writes. “His proudest achievement so far in his young life is that he is learning to read. Until now, when that pride turned to sorrow thanks to Star magazine.”
“He was able to read two things out loud, the word DIVORCE (which he proudly sounded out) and the caption above his picture which read ‘Who will get the kids?'” She continues. “He became terrified. I had to hurry him and his confused 4-year-old sister Stella out of the grocery store and into our car. By the time he was fastening himself into his car seat he was asking, ‘Why is someone getting us?? Where are you and Dad going?’ He was anxiously biting his lower lip and his big blue eyes were filled with tears.”
In the March 11 cover story, Star alleges that McDermott had cheated on Spelling and taunted her about her weight.
“You want to make inaccurate low blows at someone Star? Go for me! I can handle it. I always have. But don’t do it to a man that has done nothing but loved me and our children,” Spelling writes.
“Next week they’ll be reporting about some other couple splitting or someone having a breakdown and this will ‘have passed,'” Spelling ultimately concludes. “And, Dean and I will continue to love each other and our babies and be grateful for the lives we have. I know that. But, our children should never have to bear witness to lies and fabrications that affect their lives so that a media outlet can make money. That will always be wrong!”
