Tori Spelling, 44, and husband Dean McDermott, 50, have been ordered by a judge to pay $220,000 to City National Bank on a default judgment

In the past year alone, they have been forced to pay debts by the IRS, American Express and to McDermott’s ex for child support.

In December, Spelling and McDermott were sued by City National. The bank accused the couple of taking out a $400,000 loan in 2010

However, they defaulted on payments and currently have an outstanding balance of $188,000 they refuse to pay. 

City National also accused Spelling of overdrawing $17,000 from her checking account that the actress didn’t have the funds to repay.

March 2017:  Dean McDermott is sued by his ex wife Mary Jo Eustace for 100,000 in child support payments.

He told the judge: ‘I’ve fallen on hard times.’ 

The ex couple spoke outside of the courtroom and Eustace  withdrew her claims with prejudice, meaning she can refile at any time if he doesn’t pay up the $100,000.  

April 2017: The IRS drained the couple’s bank accounts after they had $707,487.30 in unpaid federal taxes from 2014. 

It is not known the total amount they owe the government or if they owe more from their 2015 taxes. 

City National filed suit for a total of $205,000 in damages from Spelling and McDermott.

Recently, the bank filed a motion for default against the couple explaining Spelling has blown off the case despite being served with the legal docs weeks ago, but she missed the deadline to respond to the allegations in court.

The judge came back and granted the motion for default. On April 20th, the judge set a hearing on a default judgment for May 22. He allowed Spelling one last chance to head to court and make a plea to defend herself.

Then on May 24, documents were filed revealing the judge granted the bank’s motion for default judgment and ordered the couple to cough up $202,066.10 to City National plus $17,730.56 for a grand total of $219.796.66.
