Tori Spelling’s spending habits used to top tabloid headlines as often as it rains in Seattle. For years, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star faced unflattering stories in the media about everything from her tax situation to her American Express bill. The supermarket tabloid media loved to pile on, inventing story after story that had no basis in reality, often built around her mother Candy Spelling’s fortune. Candy inherited the wealth from Tori’s father, the legendary TV producer Aaron Spelling.
It’s no secret that when Aaron died in 2006, Tori and her brother each received “only” $800,000 of a fortune likely worth hundreds of millions of dollars. To the tabloids, this apparently meant Tori’s mother didn’t trust her daughter to spend the money responsibly and therefore wouldn’t bail her out from any more money troubles. This led to bogus stories from the gossip media that claimed that although Candy frequently lends Tori money to help with the kids, she eventually decided to cut Tori off.
Although the Spelling mother-daughter relationship might not be perfect, even bordering on rocky at times, it’s asinine to think Candy would redirect her massive fortune just because of her daughter’s potential money troubles in the past. Tori has been steadily working for years now, and the verifiable stories of her money problems have all but disappeared. While she may not be worth many millions like her mother, Tori is clearly in a much more stable place financially.
Speaking of the past, Tori is fairly accustomed to facing hardship, like having to take to Instagram to speak out against cyberbullies shaming her appearance. Just like she overcame that nonsense, Tori has also begun mending her relationship with her mom.
In fact, a People article from 2019 clarified their relationship, saying, “After years of strain, Tori Spelling and her mother Candy are at peace.” Plus, even when they weren’t on the best of talking terms, Candy still made sure there was a playroom in her condo for her grandchildren and confided, “Someday my grandchildren will know who I am because of the trust funds I’ve set up, but I would like to be part of their lives now.” That hardly sounds like someone who intends to leave her fortune to creatures rather than loved ones.
A similar USA Today article also boasts that “Tori Spelling says she and mom Candy are really good right now after years of feuding.” This was corroborated when Tori shared that she and her mom are finally starting to clear the air in the August 2019 interview.
Outside of a few very sketchy tabloid stories, Tori Spelling’s finance troubles haven’t made headlines since 2016 or earlier. This further mirrors Tori’s spending troubles as a reflection of the past, and as more recent stories suggest, the relationship between the two chic blondes is on the rise. Likely, Tori will inherit a very generous allotment when Candy passes, but only time will tell.
