Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott ended their marraige in June. Now, McDermott is explaining where things went wrong, and he is taking the blame.

It was an odd summer for Tori Spelling followers. Dean McDermott, Spelling’s husband, took to Instagram to announce his separation from Spelling in June before quickly deleting the post. From there, photographers followed their every move. McDermott was seen moving boxes into storage. Spelling was photographed bouncing around hotels, campers, and friends’ homes with her children. Both McDermott and Spelling have moved on to new partners, but McDermott is taking accountability for the breakdown of his second marriage. So, what exactly happened? 

Dean McDermott explains how his marriage to Tori Spelling ended 

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling were not strangers to separation and divorce rumors when their marriage finally ended. Over the years, media outlets have speculated about the end of their union several times. In June, McDermott let the world know that things were nearing their end, although he didn’t speak out about what caused the separation until recently.

In a candid interview with The Daily Mail, McDermott revealed that alcohol addiction is what ultimately led to the end of his marriage. McDermott told the publication that addiction led him into complete isolation. He said he spent his days drinking tequila and taking prescription medications while his family spent their time elsewhere in their house. McDermott noted that the blackouts and rage were so intense that his kids and wife were terrified of him. McDermott also revealed that Spelling would spend her nights periodically checking on him to ensure he was still alive. 

The couple had weathered other problems, too. McDermott cheated on Spelling while filming a show. The fallout in the media was immense. They did reconcile after McDermott’s infidelity and admission of sex addiction, though. Financial issues and housing troubles plagued them, too. Still, after 18 years, McDermott’s impromptu Instagram post, fueled by tequila and Ambien, was the marriage’s final blow.

It doesn’t sound like they speak much.

Spelling and McDermott’s kids range in age from 16 to 6. McDermott also has an adult son, Jack McDermott, from a previous marriage.
