Tori Spelling slams divorce rumours
Tori Spelling has hit back at claims that her relationship with husband Dean McDermott is heading for disaster.
The mother-of-four has hit back at Star Magazine's latest cover story, blasting the claims as "lies and fabrications".
Tori has sons Liam and Finn and daughters Stella and Hattie with husband Dean, and says the "inaccurate" divorce reports have deeply upset her young children.
"[Liam] first spotted me on the cover, then Dad, and then a picture of himself and his three younger siblings. 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?' He became terrified," Tori wrote on her website torispelling.com.
"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. Driving home I repeatedly told my children, 'That magazine doesn't know us. Daddy and I are very happy and in love. There will be no divorce and all of us will remain together as a family.' Stella, my literal one, just kept saying 'But then why is it on the magazine? Magazines are true.' I wish that were always the case."
Tori revealed in the blog post that she has become used to tabloid stories. However, the blonde star urged reporters to think of the effect their "fabricated" stories are having on young innocent people in the process.
"But my children are another story. Keep them out of it! I wonder if any of those 3 writers have children? How would they feel if their child had to read something so hurtful and confusing as what mine had to read? How do they sleep at night knowing they've potentially emotionally scarred and if nothing else terrified innocent children," she fumed.
"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!"
The US publication alleged in their report that Dean is "on the verge of leaving Tori" and he's "hell bent on taking her, and her beyond-wealthy mother Candy Spelling for everything they're worth."
The 39-year-old actress defended her husband against such claims and also denied reports of him cheating.
"He has stood by me during the good times and held my hand through the darkest moments of my life. I'm so blessed to have him as my partner in life and love and he is the best father to our four children," she wrote.
