Tori Spelling’s financial troubles have just gotten worse, with TMZ reporting that a judge has ordered the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star to pay off the entire past due balance on her American Express card, a grand total of $37,981.97 — plus an extra $855 in court costs.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Amex took Spelling to court in January over the unpaid balance, on which she has allegedly made no payments.
As a result of non-payment of the debt, the judge issued a default judgement that compels her to pay the amount in full.
This is the latest in a string of bad financial news for Spelling and husband Dean McDermott; back in July, the couple was hit by a outstanding tax bill of nearly $1 million, which TMZ claims includes a $707,487 federal tax lien and a state tax bill of $259,000 relating to earnings in 2014.
Earlier this year, Spelling’s mother — who inherited the bulk of husband Aaron Spelling’s multimillion-dollar fortune — revealed she’s been helping out.
“I’ve been paying all her bills now, except I’m not paying extras like that,” Candy Spelling told TMZ of the credit card bill. “I’m not paying any back payments — just for the house, and the kids’ schools, and their food.”
