Tori Spelling has NOT filled out divorce papers, despite a new tabloid report claiming the actress and reality star has decided to end her marriage to Dean McDermott. The story comes from Life & Style, which previously ran a false rumor alleging that Spelling spends all day in bed and doesn’t care for the couple’s children.

According to the outlet, Spelling “decided to file for divorce” while she was hospitalized last month. “When she was in the hospital, she heard about the pictures of Dean visiting a sex shop,” a so-called “insider” tells Life & Style. “She was mortified. She couldn’t believe he was back to his old games — while she was sick, no less — and thought he was cheating. She wants out.”

A source for the outlet says Spelling has filled out divorce papers, and that McDermott “has no idea.” The mag’s insider claims, “She’s been pushed by some of her closest friends to end the marriage and is finally seeing that as a real option.” McDermott, meanwhile, allegedly wants custody of their children. According to a Life & Style source, “Dean thinks she’s an unfit mother and wants them with him.”

This divorce report is simply false. While Spelling and McDermott are obviously working through some very serious issues in their marriage (which is the point of “True Tori”), Life & Style has once again gone the extra mile and sensationalized things that don’t need sensationalizing. Spelling has NOT filled out divorce papers. A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop exclusively, it’s “not true at all.”
