IRS empties Tori Spelling's bank account

In the latest episode of a string of financial woes for Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Tori Spelling, the IRS has reportedly emptied her and her husband’s bank accounts of an unknown amount of money.

It was in 2013 that Spelling first alluded to financial trouble in an interview with People magazine. She hadn’t bought a purse in three years, she said, and admitted that she and her actor husband Dean McDermott had to be “restrictive” in their spending because the acting gigs weren’t coming in the way they once were. In her memoir, which came out later that year, she was more candid, saying that she and her family had “money problems,” and that she couldn’t “let go of her expensive tastes.”

Since then, Spelling and McDermott’s problems have only mounted. Last year, they were sued twice by American Express, the first time over a bill for $37,981.97, and then for an unpaid balance of $87,595.55.

Also in 2016, the IRS levied a federal tax lien against the couple for $707,487.30 in unpaid federal taxes from the 2014 tax year. The reported seizure of Spelling and McDermott’s bank account may be related to last year’s lien.
