Tori Spelling’s estranged husband Dean McDermott is reaching his boiling point with the actress, with sources revealing that the star is upset that his ex is ‘making everything public’ amid their alleged spilt.

McDermott, 56, and Spelling, 50, tied the knot in 2006 but the troubled marriage appeared to be headed for an end on June 16 after the actor claimed on Instagram that he and the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has split after 18 years – before the post was quickly deleted.

Now insiders tell DailyMail.com that the wary actor questions what his former wife will do next after she has made a string of headlines in recent weeks.

The source revealed: ‘Dean is at his wits end when it comes to Tori, even when he feels bad for her, he questions what she is doing next.’

Indeed, concern for Spelling has reached new heights after the star revealed she has spent five days receiving hospital treatment for a mystery illness.

It comes after the star and her five children – Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, six – had to move out of their home after they discovered a massive mold infestation in May.

The brood were soon pictured staying in a $100-a-night roadside motel, before they then appeared to be living in a trailer.

Speaking about McDermott’s feelings about the situation, the source explained that the actor is keeping his focus on the kids.

‘Dean’s main focus all along has been being a great father,’ the insider explained. ‘He loves his kids so much and wants the absolute best for them and will fight tooth and nail for them and wanted to do that with Tori, but living with Tori became a chore.

The source continued: ‘Now with Tori’s living arrangements, health concerns, and drama-charged life, Dean is trying to navigate through it all and be there for her and the kids through the tough times and to steer clear when Tori is being Tori. 

‘It has been a bunch of hoops that there seems to be no end in sight.’ 

The insider hinted that the pair have been clashing over how public Spelling has been about recent struggles, claiming that the estranged couple ‘can’t get on the same page’ about how to handle things.

Announcement: Dean posted this message on Instagram telling fans that he split with Tori. The post was removed less than 24 hours later

The source continued: ‘Dean is really trying to figure it all out, but Tori is making that difficult, Dean wants to figure everything out behind closed doors and Tori is interested in making everything public and having people feel bad for her. 

‘They can’t get on the same page, and it looks to Dean that she doesn’t want the help which is very frustrating. There is going to be more of the same in the immediate future and Dean hates it because he doesn’t want to be looked at as the bad guy.’

Spelling confirmed that she had been hospitalized on Monday, sharing a photo of her hand hooked up to an IV on her Instagram Stories, which she captioned, ‘Fourth day here and I’m missing my kiddos so much.’

‘Grateful and so proud of my strong, brave, resilient and kind-to-the-core children, who remain positive no matter what comes my way,’ she added.

The hospital band revealed that she had been first admitted on August 17, which was the same day that she was seen filming a mystery project in Los Angeles.

While it’s unclear what caused her to be under medical care for half a week, Spelling previously spoke about an ongoing mold infestation inside her home that had made her kids ‘so sick’ for ‘weeks.’

Mold: The actress vacated her house in May due to problems with mold, but did not say why she was being kept in the hospital; seen in June 2022 in Hollywood

RV life: Tori has spent a good part of the summer living with her kids in an RV.  She shared some photos from inside the motor home last week writing, ‘as long as we have each other’

Hospitalized: Tori revealed she had been hospitalized for four days, but did not reveal what she was being treated for in a social media post Sunday

While many symptoms of mold exposure are mild, it can cause severe allergic reactions and asthma attacks that could lead to hospitalization.

Exposure can result in an infection reaction right away, or it could take some time to develop.

Spelling has certainly fallen on hard times recently, with the hospitalization serving as just another devastating blow that she has faced.

After being forced to leave her abode due to the mold, it was also revealed that she may have split from her husband in June.

At the time, the Canadian actor revealed in a since-deleted Instagram post that he was parting ways with Tori after 18 years of marriage.

He said that they ‘would continue to work together as loving parents’ to ‘guide and love their children through this difficult time’ and asked for ‘privacy’ as they ‘take time’ to ‘work their way through it.
