2. Tori Spelling
$259,000 tax lien
Celebrity gossip hounds can’t help but gawk at Tori Spelling’s financial woes. A court recently ordered the former Beverly Hill 90210 star and her husband, Dean McDermott, to pay $220,000 to City National Bank after they reneged on a 2010 loan. The couple also faced a $259,000 tax lien in 2014 and were sued twice in 2016 by American Express because of unpaid credit card bills.
The reality TV star has said her privileged upbringing makes it hard to live within her means. Her dad, producer Aaron Spelling, was one of the richest men in Hollywood before he died in 2006. But Tori only got $800,000 from his estate.
“I grew up rich beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. I never knew anything else,” she wrote in her 2013 memoir, Spelling It Like It Is. “Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes.”
