McDermott recently entered a rehab facility in Los Angeles, after the pair’s seven-year marriage was rocked by allegations that McDermott cheated with a woman named Emily Goodhand, who claimed she had sex with the actor during a two-day romp at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.
Goodhand claims McDermott told her he was in a “sexless marriage” with 40-year-old Spelling, the mother-of-four to Liam, 6, Stella, 5, Hattie, 2 and Finn, 16 months.
Friends of Spelling tell Radar, "She would definitely kick Dean to the curb if she could financially afford to do so… Tori has admitted she would file for divorce from Dean, but she is afraid she would go broke.
"The couple has no prenuptial agreement, and Tori is the sole breadwinner. Dean wouldn't settle for anything less than joint custody, and Tori would be forced to pay him spousal and child support. It's a really sad situation for Tori and the kids."
Spelling, 40, has a net worth that has been the subject of much debate with some reports placing it as high as $300 million, while others have suggested she is broke and the treasure chest has evaporated to as low as $1.5 million.
Her mother, heiress Candy, is said to be sitting on a whopping $600 million!
“Before marrying Charlie, Tori’s parents forced her to get a prenup and she was very thankful for it once the marriage went south,” said the source.
“With the recent allegations that Dean cheated on Tori, she’s now kicking herself for not securing the prenup with Dean. She doesn’t plan on divorcing Dean, but feels that a prenup might could have prevented him from cheating on her.”
Tori "just can't stop crying about Dean's betrayal...she feels humiliated, and extremely angry at him," the source added.
"She seems to care more about the public perception of her than Dean's cheating."
