Life for Donna Martin has been anything but boring. There have been ups, downs, marriage (divorce and then marriage again), scandals, babies, and more scandals and babies. Tori Spelling recently opened up about her marriage to Dean McDermott, and the "rebirth" the couple experienced that's pretty heartwarming. But just when you think this couple skirted controversy, rumors are swirling Dean hasn't paid child support to his ex-wife, which sadly brings everything full circle.

  • Tori said her and Dean's fifth child together, 7-month-old Beau, helped revive their marriage.

    "Beau was like the rebirth of our relationship," the 44-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 alum revealed to Us Weekly. "We know how to do it differently now. For so many years, we kind of didn't know how to find time for ourselves, it was all about the kids, because we did start having kids right away."

    Tori and 50-year-old Dean have five children together: Liam, 10; Stella, 9; Hattie, 6; Finn, 5; and little Beau. The couple, who've been married since 2006, hit a major snag in their relationship back in 2013 amid reports Dean cheated on Tori with another woman. The aftermath played out on the docuseries True Tori.

    "Dean has stopped paying again," Eustace, 55, asserts in court documents filed on October 10, Us Weekly reports.

    "In the last six weeks he has been on two luxurious vacations, Iceland & the four seasons in Punta Mita. He resides in a $2 million estate paid by his mother-in-law, Candy Spelling, and has no impetus to work. He owes over $100,000 moving forward, and I believe he has no intention of paying. He bounces my son's university rent/tuition and is delinquent in paying therapist bills, while he shops visibly and throws lavish parties for his other five children."

    Mary Jo, who was married to Dean for 13 years before he cheated on her with Tori in 2006, also filed a contempt of court charge against Dean in March stating that "he just stopped paying two years ago for our original support, and he didn't pay child support." She claims that Dean owes more than $100,000. It's also reported the two came to an out-of-court agreement plan during that time that reportedly has yet to be upheld. 

  • As great as it is to hear Tori and Dean are doing well, hopefully Dean and Mary Jo can come to some sort of agreement about their son Jack.
